ContentKing

The times when [ContentKing] is most useful is when working with migrations, or changing dynamic websites that you want to continuously monitor fix and rapidly resolve issues. Because you can share URLs to key issues and create segments out of them it is very easy to highlight issues. Because it isn't charged a per user level this does mean you can give access to clients and their development teams.

gShift

gShift's pace of development is pretty amazing and they are very responsive to enhancement requests and other feedback on their solutions. gShift is well-suited for an agency environment where multiple clients need the basics in keyword rankings and website analytics and PPC reporting integration. gShift is less suited for a large organizations with multiple properties or web presences that are all integrated but require silos for reporting purposes or any type of parent-child reporting relationship that necessitates reporting at the property level as well as summarized reporting for all properties.

Pros

ContentKing

  • Proactive monitoring of the website on a broad spectrum of on-page and technical issues.
  • Insights for page-specific action points based on different data streams.
  • Identifying technical and on-page website issues.
Jarik Oosting | TrustRadius Reviewer

gShift

  • Bringing most of your applications to one platform.
  • Managing Gmail Accounts.
  • Bringing all your communication channels to one spot.
  • Easy setup and account integration.

Cons

ContentKing

  • It is a single host only, which means that if your website spans mulitple subdomains it falls down
  • It isn't as easy to control as desktop crawlers, the continuous nature means you can't just give it a set of URLs to monitor.
  • Some of the issues it highlights aren't always issues, and so you need an expert user
Gerry White | TrustRadius Reviewer

gShift

  • Minor bugs and defects are an ongoing issue - for example, PDF export capability for custom dashboards seems to be down frequently. While these type of defects are always resolved in 1-2 weeks, the fact that some of them keep reoccurring is an ongoing frustration.
  • Custom Dashboard functionality is limited to pre-set defaults as far as what data points or "beacons" as gShift calls them, that you could pull.

Really like the walkthrough onboarding of the app to get your bearings when you sign up. You can quickly glance at the interface and understand where everything is located and what each feature is used for. The dashboard is incredibly useful to understand the health of your site and address any persistent issues on your site quickly.

They respond very quickly and have deep technical knowledge so they will always find a solution to your problem. They are based in Europe but are planning to open offices soon in the USA that will help with time-difference issues. If you are based in Europe, you will get an answer in 15 minutes.

Alternatives Considered

ContentKing

Content King provides a much more immersive dashboard. Additionally, the reports offered by Content king give us much more granular data allowing management to see the results country site by country site. The other tool would have required us to hire an external developer to create a custom dashboard to provide reporting. This to, us made the decision easy.

They are very different tools can't compare them.
