Overall Satisfaction with Conductor Searchlight

In our current setting, we're utilizing Conductor Searchlight to better understand not only our current ranking on SERPs, but also to better understand our competition's standings on various SERPs. With this data, we're able to craft better content, develop better strategies, and make a deeper impact in our market. Being a home builder, we are constantly battling major national brands, but we also can't forget to track other more localized competitors; Conductor Searchlight helps keep us up-to-speed on who our biggest SEO competitors are and how to best grow our strategies to take them on.
  • The customer support team is absolutely the best in market. There's no other SEO organization that cares for its customers like Conductor.
  • Data is extremely easy to read. There's no confusing jargon to try and learn; relevant terms are kept clear, concise, and understandable. If you're not sure what something means, Conductor is great about teaching!
  • The data provided is so robust, yet isn't just "fluff." A lot of companies throw in things that sound really cool, but don't ultimately help you move the needle. Conductor keeps things relevant and on-task, leaving the "filler" to others.
  • Weekly or bi-weekly recurring calls with the account team would be nice. I'm sure this is probably possible, but we haven't pursued it as intentionally as we should, based on our current workload. They're always available when we have any questions or needs.
Content from Conductor is the most dependable out there; not only do they have their own proprietary software for SEO strategy, they incorporate real-time data directly from the top sources available. The way they've carefully crafted their abilities and presence is a direct testimony to how seriously they take themselves and their commitment to providing nothing but the best.
I know I can count on the data from Conductor Searchlight to always be timely, relevant, and accurate 100% of the time.
  • We've been able to better understand where our own web properties aren't optimized properly; it's also helped us strategize growth opportunities for next year, better understanding what areas we need to focus on as we add pages to our inventory.
  • It's helped us identify key players in our space, discovering new competitors we didn't realize were "winning" as well as they are, and also seeing how we measure up against the competition we already knew we had.
  • Conductor Searchlight has been a great tool for helping improve the quality of our company blog and other social content.
Being an extremely small team, we're able to hit the "heavy stuff" quickly and effectively, instead of having to spend a lot of time figuring out "What's our biggest need, and how do we approach it?" With each member of our Marketing & Traffic team wearing multiple hats, Conductor serves up the best info in a clear, readable way that is easy to share and understand, regardless of how well another team member "speaks SEO."
Of all the platforms we evaluated, Conductor stood out head-and-shoulders above the rest. Their product catalog provides exactly what we need (and more), and their customer support team is second to none. I've worked with Conductor Searchlight in two previous roles as well (the first by discovery, the second by my own recommendation); both organizations saw a dramatic increase in online properties' presence from an SEO approach; organic traffic increased substantially, along with gaining a plethora of insights that were an absolute necessity.
Extremely user friendly; the UX of Conductor Searchlight is great, and creates a very easy workflow process. When digging into the data, I can choose to simply leverage the high-level views of data that my weekly auto-gen reports provide OR I can do a deep dive analysis, really focusing on specific features or functions as time allows.
You will NOT find a better support team. Period. Going beyond simply being able to answer questions, the entire support team KNOWS their individual roles and are absolutely unparalleled in their specific space. They're not only knowledgeable, but also extremely courteous (and patient with me) as we have gone through the setup process and continued tracking of our online properties.
Conductor is NOT for the faint of heart. It's not for someone that only wants to monitor what their current rankings are; if that's all you're looking for, go with a cheaper cookie-cutter service.

When you sign with Conductor, get ready: you've got some serious data coming your way! If you aren't going to leverage a lot of SEO data in your strategy, they're not for you. If you're ready to truly start creating SEO strategy that WINS, start the conversation now! You won't regret it!
