DeepCrawl

DeepCrawl is organized very well for a full technical audit of a site. The menu on the left side is very easy to navigate, and you don't have to surf around too much to get an idea of what is plaguing a site. For a larger audit, DeepCrawl rules. Smaller audits can be tricky if you just want to know one quick thing because the crawl time can be unpredictable and difficult to project.

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

DeepCrawl

  • GUI, when you run a crawl, the response is epic. It isn't just results, the results are very easy to understand.
  • Again, as pertaining to the explanation above. If you use other crawl software, it can be difficult to get insights, whereas DeepCrawl makes it easy. You can get proper insights.
  • It is so easy to put your stamp on things. DeepCrawl gives you an option as a consultant that you might not have had before, it is your backup.

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

DeepCrawl

  • Sitemap generating time often takes a few hours depending on how large your site is
  • I would like to have more suggestions to guide optimization efforts
  • Some of the initial setup for crawlers does take time

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.

Based on 1 answer
I liked the platform overall. It is a good crawler. I no longer use because it's duplicate of what I get with seoClarity. I did not give it 10/10 because sometimes I had a hard time isolating site areas that I wanted and didn't get much technical support from Conductor on how to use the tool

Alternatives Considered

DeepCrawl

They have a technical component to their software, but DeepCrawl is more detailed.
Jane Phelps | 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

DeepCrawl

  • The price of the tool compared to the amount of time it saves me is a staggering number.
  • With DeepCrawl I can leave no stone unturned, which helps establish Agency credibility with clients.
Anonymous | 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.
