Conductor Searchlight is being used by our Marketing department, specifically our Digital Marketing Team. Our original intention in pursuing a partnership with Conductor Searchlight was based out of a need to be able to effectively identify what our competitors were doing to beat us to page one of Google for specific search terms.
We also had a need to identify gaps and holes in our online content strategy. Conductor Searchlight not only shows us what our competitors are doing to win at SEO, but it also gives recommendations on how to take action on the opportunities that are within striking distance. We did not have the budget to hire a team of people to do what Conductor Searchlight can do for a fraction of the cost.
  • Recommendations, in my opinion, are the best thing about Conductor Searchlight. The recommendations dashboard gives my team ideas for quick wins with SEO, which saves me time from having to manually mine data to determine in on my own.
  • Competitor analysis is essential to how we use Conductor Searchlight. Being able to identify what our competitors are ranking for specific search terms in specific regions is crucial to making good SEO decisions.
  • The explorer tool is great for planning new content ideas. The data that it provides saves so much time when determining what keywords to target for new content.
  • Set up time is a bit long, but the great thing is you know that the Conductor team is working hard to get it set up right the first time around. Measure twice, cut once.
  • The platform is very robust and can be overwhelming for non-tech savvy people. Although the platform is user-friendly and designed well, the learning curve is quite steep.
  • Training was quick and to the point. I wish it has been a little longer and more in-depth.
Conductor Searchlight was well suited for our needs not only because it was the best SEO platform on the market, but because of the SEO strategist support that came with the platform. The Conductor team really wants to help their clients succeed at SEO, and they work hard to make sure goals are met.

Conductor is easily the best SEO and content platform we have used. Its interface is fluid and user-friendly, and the team provides excellent support services to us. The platform showcases everything you would need all under one roof. Whether you want real-time data on competitors at a page or domain level, or want to know how to leverage optimizing your content for getting into the all-important quick answer boxes, event featured snippets, or people also ask boxes, this platform tells you how to do it! It provides the most comprehensive aggregation of data. It pulls in Google Analytics, Search Console, Social Metrics, Sentiment tracking, Google trends, and all the things you would expect. It also partners with DeepCrawl and SEMRush to give you the most cutting edge technical SEO torchlight to shine on your site health issues. The managed services afford an amazing and deep technical site audit, and I have seen a lot! The support to our teams is amazing, and Conductor are constantly evolving the platform with their cool new beta roll outs. It really is the best of the breed in 2019. It also allows for better and easy digestible reporting for keyword tracking, competitor tracking, cannibalization, on page diagnosis and fixing, PPC and organic -- under one view! :)
  • Support and Services: if you have different teams - it's hard for you to manage everyone's needs at once. Conductor does their bit in giving your teams and publishers support.
  • Data integration: it's the best experience ever. Quick, precise, and also adding value.
  • Cutting edge tools: content brief, content mapping, market share analysis, and the AMAZING explorer research tool, which is the BEST on the market today to research your topics and content!
  • Slightly better keyword segmentation.
The best platform out there for teams at big or mid-sized brands. The best platform out there, as it uses the best of breed APIs from Deep Crawl and SEMRush and Talkwalker. It's the best platform for fluid reporting.

Conductor is leveraged across digital marketing, editorial, product, and technology teams. Sotheby's has leveraged a combination of Conductor's Searchlight platform to effectively support a shift to a more proactive approach to consumer-oriented marketing and product development as well as assist in a complete web front end re-platform/re-launch effort.
  • Excellent search/keyword data.
  • Ease of use/accessible to non-technical team members.
  • Would be great to be able to better integrate data into other martech/CDP ecosystems.
  • Should be able to easily toggle between daily, monthly, annual, etc. keyword/topic tracking timeframes.
Conductor Searchlight is well-positioned as an easily accessible and collaborative space for product, editorial, and marketers to research and report around consumer interest and competitive landscapes.

Conductor Searchlight is used mostly by the SEO team. The PPC team and analytics team would use it from time to time as well to do some research and check the reports. We also use it to share the reports with other stakeholders who do not have an account in the conductor platform. We are using it on our day to day work, and the key items we are addressing are:

  • Identify new opportunities
  • Competition analysis
  • Measure the success
  • Their support team is the best! Always online to answer questions and guide us in the right direction.
  • The Explorer tool - Very easy and intuitive tool to identify new opportunities, check on overall domain performance and how it does compare to competitions.
  • Content Performance - The tool I like the most because it can analyze the organic traffic performance of a page, group of pages based on tour own custom settings. This helps me to understand where I need to focus and how to prioritize my SEO work.
  • Daily updated for tracked keywords - This is the only area I think they need to improve. With many Google updates, website changes happening every day I need to see the impact the next day if not right away.
People spend a tremendous amount of time reporting. With Conductor, we have cut the time for our SEO reports by 80%. It helps to inform other teams about the changes in the SEO performance and how we can work together with them to benefit from that. For instance, the SEO reports we have in place help PPC team to come with better strategies for paid advertising.

Our SEO and content team use this platform to track keyword performance against our competitors, as well as to find new keywords to write content around.
  • Keyword ranking.
  • Content performance.
  • Competitive analysis.
  • Customer support.
  • The platform has a lot of features which can be overwhelming and hard to find at times.
It's great for enterprise websites with a lot of keywords and/or content that you need to track. But small websites with only a handful of keywords that need to be tracked will most likely not benefit from investing in a tool like this one.

We use SearchLight to improve our visibility in search. It provides great high-level recommendations for our team to implement. DeepCrawl integration is great for discovering any technical issue. The platform has really helped us understand what types of content work for us along with understanding what changes are moving the needle.
  • Tracking HTML changes and the impact on ranking.
  • DeepCrawl integration provides a very detailed analysis of the technical aspects of our SEO efforts.
  • The support that Conductor provides is some of the best I have encountered. They make themselves very accessible for questions and support.
  • Navigating through the different areas can be a bit cumbersome.
  • The platform is pricey but in line with competitors.
We are an enterprise business with over 50 locations nationwide. Conductor allows us to track our performance by region and city for localized searches. It is well suited for optimizing SEO efforts from a local perspective. It is also great for performing large scale analysis of websites from both a technical and content performance perspective.

Conductor Searchlight is used by our digital marketing teams as one of the main resources of information for all Bitdefender's domains. It covers a lot of our needs due to the high level of information offered. The main area is SEO (from technical to content creation), but we also used it in PPC and Social Media projects.
  • Content and Keyword Performance facilities - great for tracking content performance and identifying opportunities for new content
  • Explorer - great tool for keyword research and competitive analysis
  • Support Teams - always there, helping the customers
  • Accessibility analysis and recommendations will be a great facility to have
If your company online presence is of great importance to you, than Conductor is the platform to use.

We are mainly using it on the SEO team but other marketing and editorial departments have used it for reports. It helps report on keyword and page performance as well as with keyword research, competitive insights, market share, and more.
  • Product development - They act on our requests to improve the platform!
  • Keyword research.
  • Competitive research.
  • Reporting for the ever-changing SERP.
  • SERP screenshots.
  • Content mappings are cumbersome.
Conductor Searchlight is great for keyword research, page and category level reporting, and competitive and market share insights. It's not the best for content ideation and mapping.

With Conductor Searchlight we're able to track SEO activity better than we ever were before. When changes are made to the site they are logged in it automatically. All of our keyword and content performance is intricately monitored and mapped so we can easily digest data and act accordingly. The weekly insights keep us on our toes and auto measure things like how many answer boxes our content appears for. We're able to tell great stories with data at the end of every month, quarter and as issues arise. On top of that, we have unlimited user licenses so the paid team and competitive insights team is using the tool as well.
  • Keyword research, tracking, and monitoring.
  • In-depth content performance insights with the ability to make custom content segments to measure groups of product pages, blog pages etc.
  • Both high-level and granular level of monitoring and insights.
  • Easy reporting allows marketers to share the most appropriate story with the right stakeholders easily.
  • Auto-generated insights remove a lot of manual data crunching and fast-tracks results, keeping marketers on their toes!
  • Conductor Searchlight is led by a group of talented, down-to-earth, super-helpful and just awesome individuals. Their service is unparalleled in the industry and their product is right there with it.
  • YouTube channel integration for insights on which videos are performing well in organic
  • Constant innovation & amazing events!
  • Would like to be able to expand URL column in performance tables.
  • Sometimes the " __" search command doesn't work.
Conductor's Searchlight platform is most suitable for marketers working in-house on SEO and content (including social) performance. While the investment is completely justified for everything that you get with Conductor Searchlight (hello access to Deep Crawl and many other tools centralized!!), it would be a challenge for a search agency managing many client sites to see ROI because their offering is on a per domain basis. That said, many agencies could be using Conductor Searchlight for all I know and accessing all of its glory - I hope so because it's a real gem!

Our digital team is trained in using the tool and share the information with other departments. We're using Conductor to see what users are searching for, high performing keywords, maximizing our content, and researching our competitor's performance. The tool provides many insights into how well we're performing and we're able to customize the performance metrics to fit our needs.
  • See how competitors rank in detail.
  • Market research on high performing topics to generate new content.
  • Additional insights.
  • Incorporate paid media.
Many times companies have their own terminology and lingo so you wonder if the market uses the same terms (or if we just made it up). Conductor is able to pinpoint exactly what users call things and search for it with sufficient evidence and facts to back it up. The benefits help us change the way we create content to fully maximize our opportunities.

We use the platform in order to look into our SEO efforts.
  • Competition Research: an easy look at the market share of competitors
  • Keyword Research: robust keyword reporting tools with segmentation available
  • Actionable Insights: insights into ways to optimize on-page SEO
  • Chart Labels: some charts don't have easy-to-find labels which can make interpreting the data difficult.
Conductor is great for teams looking to branch into SEO or for smaller and/or less experienced SEO teams. The customer service teams are excellent and you know going in that they'll be there to assist you whenever you need them.

Conductor Searchlight is used to help organize the company's SEO efforts. It helps us focus on top priorities that will have the most impact on rankings. It also is an all in one tool that helps track both on-page and off-page SEO from content creation to page speed optimization. It is extremely intuitive and the training videos are great for anyone new to the platform who is looking to get familiar and become a pro user of the tool.
  • Content creation and keyword research.
  • Tracking content performance and recommendations.
  • Reporting of SEO efforts and rankings.
  • Can be complex when navigating from feature to feature.
  • May take time for new SEOs to be familiar with what feature does what.
Conductor Searchlight is suitable for medium to large-sized companies with larger SEO budgets.

Conductor Searchlight helps our organization review keyword performance, content performance, and market share. We have found it valuable when looking at/identifying areas to optimize. My specific department was not previously using any SEO platform; when we began to use Searchlight, we really found this data valuable especially since it was data that we had not been looking at before. We utilize the data provided in the tool to monitor areas that we have optimized and identified areas that we can take action to help improve, specifically keyword rank and view page sessions over time. The tool is also used across several different teams, who can pull different valuable and actionable data from it.
  • Provides data in an easy and digestible way.
  • Provides graphs and charts to support data.
  • Provides the ability to create custom workspaces.
  • There is a lot of (useful data) but it can be overwhelming to narrow down.
Conductor Searchlight is great for reviewing keyword performance and assisting in identifying areas of opportunity within organic rankings! It is also a great tool to see search performance over time and review how competitors are performing. We are able to make informed decisions/updates using keyword performance and content performance and track how these updates help/hurt.

  • Customer service.
  • Targeted insights.
  • Research functionality.
  • More customization for reporting.
  • Minor user interface improvements.
  • Team members who can execute technical tasks.
Conductor Searchlight is well suited for companies looking to grow organic traffic through SEO and content marketing initiatives.

Currently we use Searchlight across 2 of our main brands (VersaDesk & GLAMMY Vanity). We use it to analyze keyword rankings for our main products and other web pages we want to make sure show up on the first page. We make adjustments when necessary based on the information that we obtain from the platform. Additionally we use it to find keywords and topics for creating new informational web pages about our products and blog posts that educate them about the life style around our products.
  • Keyword ranking - getting stats weekly on what keywords we are ranking for on 1st page and what the rank changes are is very useful insights that I don't even have to go look for. Wonderful that they are just delivered to my inbox.
  • Content Improvement Suggestions - this is great for when you know you want to keep improving but need some thought starters on where to start.
  • Account Success team is very hands on and informative. Having this hands on help that's essentially an extension of our team has been very helpful in getting us adjusted to the platform and helping guide us to sections of the platform we could be utilizing more. They also come up with great suggestions.
  • I love the platform , but there is a lot happening on each page that sometimes causes you to take moment to find what you are looking for.
Searchlight is well suited for any e-commerce company that is looking to improve their search results. I really can't think of a company that wouldn't benefit fro using the platform so long as they have a team to use it and carry out the content creation.

It would be less appropriate for a team that does not have have the bandwidth to be in the platform and utilize it. That is where I would suggest managed services.

We use Conductor Searchlight for our university website. It is currently used by our Marketing department in order to strategize our content. Previously, our website was a free-for-all without any SEO implementation. We are working to gain a competitive advantage online by utilizing our keyword research and competitive analysis as well as maintaining our site health and ADA compliance with their site analysis. Being a team of one at the moment, Conductor's customer service and access to a team whenever needed is a lifesaver. I fought leadership for over 8 months to get approval to partner with Conductor and it was well worth the struggle!
  • Customer Service. By far what they offer is the best. I have access to a team and their calendars. So when I need to set up a meeting I know when they are available. They are easy to talk to and help me work through any problem I might be having.
  • Reports. I've seen reports by some of their competitors and quite honestly wasn't sure what I was looking at. But Conductors reports can be streamlined to fit several different audiences and I can email them out (automatically) whenever I want to whomever I want, whether they are a Searchlight user or not.
  • Competitive Analysis. I've not done a lot of comparison with other vendors, but I like the convenient, straightforward way Conductor Searchlight shows your competitors and how they are ranking in comparison to you. You have control over your competitors and can change them when needed.
  • Site Analysis. Conductor Searchlight uses DeepCrawl for its site analysis. While this is a powerful tool that helps me know everything wrong with my website like - no titles, short descriptions, no Alt tags, etc - the amount of information can be overwhelming. Initially, I had thousands of errors I was trying to fix using DeepCrawl - it was difficult to know what I had corrected and what still needed to be corrected without doing another crawl. It would be helpful if there was a way to check off things that had been fixed as I was working through the list.
  • Conductor does a great job training. First, they introduced me to Searchlight and walked me through everything, and helped me create workspaces and set up reports. Then we moved on to the site analysis with DeepCrawl. Because I had so much work to do from the site analysis it was a while before I got back into Searchlight. I had forgotten much of the training by that point. But the team is helping me get back into the flow of things again. They are great like that!
The only reason I wouldn't want to share this with a colleague is that they will then become a much greater competition in the market. Areas where conductor helps us as an educational institution is: we have many different segmented areas in our Website. It's great to be able to create segmented keywords (categories) and reports that I can share with the various individual departments across campus.

Our content team uses Searchlight to form the basis of our weekly editorial calendar. The technical site auditing tools have proven invaluable to our Web team for the ability to easily identify on-page technical SEO issues. The regular calls with our professional services team, where we discuss not only high-level concepts, but also proactive recommendations, are also extremely helpful.
  • Keyword word analysis: The keyword tools enable us to identify topics that our audience is actually searching for.
  • On-page auditing: We can quickly identify technical issues.
  • Professional services: We particularly enjoy working with Conductor's professional services team to form the basis of our SEO strategy.
  • ROI takes approximately 9-12 months.
Searchlight is excellent for formulating a content strategy and easily reporting on site and content performance. Within a week of deploying the platform, we had our keyword strategy in place, and we were able to easily create automated weekly reports identifying gains and losses over the course of the past week.

Conductor is being used by practically everyone in the marketing department. Everyone from our copywriter to our digital marketing specialist has greatly benefited by using Searchlight. On my end, this solves the issue of reporting and creating workflows for the team. Searchlight combines the reports all into one place with a weekly report which I can just forward off to the leadership team. These reports have made it easy for me to analyze our current performance and make business decisions based on the data. Our copywriter and communications specialist use it for content analysis and looking at the content gaps on our site. Our digital marketing specialist uses it to enhance our web pages for SEO best practices.
  • My favorite part of Searchlight is the reporting features. I can't speak highly enough of the reporting. Before Searchlight, we didn't have much visibility into how our efforts were affecting our site traffic and rankings, but now, showing the leadership team that the marketing team is doing a good job is easy! I just forward our executive team the weekly reports and they seem to love it too!
  • The account management team has been beyond helpful throughout the entire engagement. They have been responsive to all of our needs and questions even after our account was set up. Their expertise is beyond valuable and they help us think creatively on ways to use the platform we aren't currently using.
  • One of the best parts of Conductor is the ease of use for users of all experience levels. We have beginners and experts using the platform alike and it seems to be a great fit for everyone.
  • Conductor's Explorer feature makes it easy for us to develop new content. Before we were manually searching for topics to write about, now it's easier than ever.
  • We track backlinks every week for our executive team, Conductor doesn't have an easy way right now to find this information. However, our account management team has been fantastic and has been providing this information for us every week.
  • Getting set up in Conductor is time consuming and takes some effort internally, but is primarily done by the Conductor team. It may be worth having longer strategy sessions with the teams for a shorter implementation time.
  • Market Share only shows your market share within your tracked keywords. I think it would be beneficial to see how we rank against our competitors on keywords we're not tracking. This may expose some keywords we're not tracking that we should be tracking.
Conductor is well suited for small teams that are busy juggling multiple priorities. It's an easy to use platform and you get your results quickly without having to dedicate too much of your time. You will find the platform useful even if you only have one hour a day to dedicate to logging in. Most enterprise SEO platforms we evaluated required much more time and energy to find the platform beneficial.

We use Conductor mostly in marketing and for content, though there is an organization-wide effort to expand SEO.
  • The platform is so easy to use and understand
  • The support is incredible -- I can reach out to any team member and get a clear answer to my question; our regular calls are also really helpful
  • Conductor takes feedback VERY well; I remember seeing some things in development now that came from the NorthEast User Group
  • This is wildly specific, but I'd love some automatic custom reporting
  • Within the workspaces too, I'd like a cleaner integration with Google Docs/Sheets
Searchlight is amazing for content ideation; we also love using it/Managed Services for refreshing current content.

Conductor Searchlight is used to monitor our website's content and keyword performance and allows us insight into trending terms in order to best adjust our content creation strategies. The website shows recommendations and other related terms that allows us to pick and choose how to utilize the results based on the competition of that topic. Searchlight also features seamless integration with Google Search Console and Google Analytics. To complement this, the site has a built in workspace and reports function that ensures that your entire team has simultaneous access to the same perspectives on the industry.
  • The Managed Services team provide amazing communication and show that they are just as invested in your success. Their insights help tailor how to use the site and best develop your site.
  • The Searchlight program is easy to use and the training program to help you get integrated is great and works around your schedule.
  • Competitor insights allow you to create a strategy that is best tailored to tackle industry issues.
  • There are discrepancies in MSV between different sites. Currently unclear if this is an aggregate score or gotten through a different method than Ahrefs and Moz. While this isn't a crippling issue, we supplement our decisions based on other sources.
  • It would be nice if we would specify the columns we download on the keyword bulk updater and add MSV and rank changes to the columns. Again, a very minor issue.
Searchlight is great for checking overall keyword performance based on your selected search engine. This allows you to create a database of relevant keywords and phrases best suited to increase your website visibility. For example, if you were a potato salesman and wanted to optimize your site on newly trending Yukon Gold potatoes, you can simply search the MSV on related key terms in order to best provide the best consumer experience based on most commonly searched terms. This also shows you which terms are not currently relevant and track them for later updates.

I use Conductor Searchlight to provide insights into how the search engines view my site as far as an authority in my space, but also to gain insight into what my competition is doing. I also integrate GSC & GA to get an all-in-one overview of my website and my efforts in gaining SERP space and view my market share vs. my competitors.
  • The Content Performance tool allows me to view what effect my content is having on my site and what pages are being viewed, clicked on and interacted with the most.
  • DeepCrawl allows me to view my site as an engine would and points any issues that I need to address immediately on a monthly basis
  • The Managed Services team is spot on in helping me see other issues that I may have missed in my study and is always willing to provide some help in other aspects of job.
  • I feel that the paid & organic optimizer section needs some work to help with the research, needs to be a bit more functional I believe.
  • If there is a backlink tool, I have not seen it. It is something I would definitely like to use.
  • A social SEO optimizer would also be of some great help.
Allowing me to see my competitors' rankings and market share are key in my work as I need to delve into the deep dive of where my competition is eating my lunch. The research section allows me to have a deep dive into what keywords I can find for my products. What is less appropriate for me at the moment is the YouTube video performance tool, possibly in the future.

The application is used in many ways but I use it to optimize our website. My duty is to optimize the website in order to have a better presence on the internet and visibility across major search engines.
  • Great Recommendations.
  • Useful graphs to show how the website has changed.
  • Generates useful reports for managers.
  • Learning Curve.
  • Can be intimidating if you know nothing about SEO.
It is great for companies that are huge with over 1k employees and is a branded company as well. It is scalable for businesses which is good for the employees that want a strong internet presence and constantly campaign on the web.

Conductor Searchlight is used by the marketing team at my organization to help with SEO efforts and content creation. Before using Conductor, there were many things we had to track manually when it comes to keywords and different content performance. Now that we have implemented Conductor, we are able to track all of our SEO and content performance in one platform and it has helped make our lives easier. Conductor's platform is incredibly easy to use and creates easily digestible reports that we are able to send to leadership or other employees who may not be as familiar with the software as the marketing team is. Conductor has helped our team automate how we track our company's SEO efforts and has changed the way our team operates for the better!
  • The Explorer feature is a great resource for me to use whenever I am creating new content. Conductor allows me to go in and search keywords to see if the content I would like to create is popular among searches and tells me if this is something we should be focusing on or not.
  • The Content Performance tool is a great resource for me to use whenever I am managing and creating new content. We always want to make sure that we are creating new and exciting content that is performing well on our site among customers, and the Content Performance tool lets me see which pieces are doing well and which pieces are not. This tool also shows me the organic performance of our content over time and allows me to track that as well.
  • The Keyword Performance tool is also a great resource to use whenever I am looking to create new content. The "Striking Distance" and "Dropped Off First Page" features are great resources for me to use to see which content I need to focus on to gain traction for different keywords.
  • I think the content map feature has a lot of room for growth. The content mapping feature is a great feature but I think there should be an easier way to edit the content within the map once it is already created and segmented. It would be nice to be able to drag and drop pieces of content into different stages of the buyers journey within the map.
Conductor Searchlight is great for companies who are looking to automate their SEO efforts. Conductor has been nothing but amazing for my team and I and has opened our eyes to all of the opportunities we have to improve our company's SEO and rankings, along with new content that can be created to help do so.
