gShift is the flagship cloud-based search engine optimization platform from the Canadian company gShift Labs headquartered in Barrie, Ontario, launched in 2009 to simplify and "demystify" organic SEO. Billed as a comprehensive and integrated suite of tools, gShift offers keyword analysis across multiple and international (including Baidu) search engines, backlink checking and insights, content-level analytics and reporting, mobile discoverability and local search analysis, and some more rarely seen elements like integration with Constant Contact for analysis of the success of email marketing campaigns. These features and more are offered without (gShift Lite) or with private support, social keyword analysis, and a white label dashboard (gShift Full).https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/aj/OM/W3101ZXT805K.JPEGgShift Provides Comprehensive Reporting and Traffic Analysis for Multi-Client EnvironmentsWe utilize gShift across all of our properties for keyword ranking insights, keyword research and discovery, content optimization, and online influencer identification.

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.
