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.

SEMrush

SEMRush is a great tool for any SEO campaign, especially if you are doing a lot of continued research on new keywords to target, if you have competitors to beat, links to acquire or monitor, etc. You can have multiple projects at one time, so it's great for a small to medium size agency that is managing multiple clients. There is a bit of a learning curve with it, but if you get in there and use it frequently, it provides a lot of value.

Cons

ContentKing

  • None so far.

  • I'd like to see better, more customizable dashboard widgets.
  • Pricing based on how many keywords are being tracked is not a great model.
  • I'd like to see reports take into account both mobile and desktop collectively, instead of keeping them separate.

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.

SEMRush has a slight learning curve, but everything is organized really well. Once you learn where everything is, using the software and running reports is incredibly easy. You can easily add new projects, get help for improving on-page SEO, and there are even video tutorials that walk you through the whole system if you still feel uncomfortable with it.

This is a great tool that helps you identify the keywords that are common among our competitors. Similar to the keyword gap tool, we also use Backlink Gap tool that help us in determining the backlinks our travel website competitors. It also displays the SERP results list for the specific keyword and with this tool we have already ranked 5 pages on Google's first page

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.

I have not used another product like SEMRush. Although I do not have anything to compare it to, I think this platform is the total package! Even if you are only using the Keyword Magic Tool or using Domain Overview to look at competitor metrics, this platform with provide you with more insight, clarity, and information you need to create your best campaign / marketing strategy

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.

SEMrush

  • SEMRush has allowed for our marketing team to have a better focus on what keywords make sense for our pages to rank for, giving us data-backed decisions and saving us time.
  • We have also been able to easily track the changes in our organic traffic month to month, especially by keyword. Having the ability to see which keywords are providing the most value has influenced our content strategy as well as our backlink pursuits
