ContentKing

ContentKing is well suited if your are managing different blogs or ecommerce stores and you need to keep an eye on any changes made. Good pricing structure based on the number of pages you have. You will be sure that you’re monitoring your sites effectively and staying on top of problems before they occur.

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

  • Easy first setup and monitoring
  • Easy notification settings
  • Real time notifications are very easy to understand and use
  • Excellent tool at a very good price

gShift

  • Keyword Rankings - gShift allows you to track keywords by search engine, by device, and by location, giving you side-by-side views how you rank and appear in all use cases. gShift also tracks Google local map rankings, which provides greater insight for businesses with multiple rooftops and locations that want visibility into how customers can find them in different geographical regions of a metro area or on mobile vs. desktop.
  • White-labeled reporting - gShift allows you to run competition reports, keyword ranking reports, and comprehensive web analytics reports that pull in Google Analytics, Google AdWords, and Google Search Console data, making it less likely you have to provide your clients with separate reports from separate, third-party solutions.
  • Custom Dashboards - somewhat similar to Google's dashboard functionality although more limited in scope, you can create custom dashboards to share with members of your organization in real-time or export via PDF.

Cons

ContentKing

  • None so far.
Hans Buis | 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.

The dashboard is comprehensive although the amount of data it provides. Alert settings page is easy to manage. And the Issues page is what I love, clear and useful design.

They are available to answer your questions through a convenient chat box module inside the app. In addition, they are very responsive over email and have many resources on their blog to improve your SEO practices. They also include resources to common set up scenarios so you can get to using ContentKing quickly.

Alternatives Considered

ContentKing

The difference with regular crawling tool is that ContentKing offers real time monitoring and HTTP header snapshots. You can also have issue tracking and history per URLs.
Juliette Tholey | TrustRadius Reviewer

gShift

gShift is more user-friendly and intuitive, particularly for sharing access with members across your organization who do not have the same level of digital marketing savvy. Additionally, gShift integrates reporting for web analytics, search visibility, social metrics, and PPC in one platform and one reporting tool in a way that the other providers do not.

Return on Investment

ContentKing

  • Saves huge amount of time on crawling websites individually.
  • Quick way to find wrong implementations of tags such as no-index tags etc.
eric basiches | TrustRadius Reviewer

gShift

  • We have been able to identify other keyword ranking opportunities and increase our on-site conversion rate.
  • gShift has helped us prioritize content and discover content that is over-performing, and better optimize that content and use it for remarketing purposes.
