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.

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

Surfer
  • AI Writing: This is a new feature, and in comparison to alternatives it's poor both from a pricing and result perspective
  • Monthly Pricing: Surfer used to a clear value for money solution, it's somewhat pricing out solo-operators with the current pricing model
  • Backlinks: Surfer does have a backlink crawler, but it's quite limited

Usability
ContentKing
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.

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.

Frase gives a lot of content to use, but it doesn't give you the factors you need to rank. This is ultimately why we use SurferSEO over any other editor tool that is out there. The analytics are number one to the entire space.
