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.

The Search Monitor

It's well suited when it comes to analysis of competition, as well as ad copy improvement. It's good with page recommendations, keywords analytics and backlinking management. It might be not the best tool for keeping data all in one place and task management.

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.

Search monitor gives better visibility on what competitors are doing for a bulk of keywords, while SEMRush lets you just see how strong the competition is for a specific domain/keyword.

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

The Search Monitor

  • Positive on the side of getting information for our clients
  • Restricted by the number of keywords. We ran out of the allowed volumes and couldn't use it for all clients we had.
