Been using this for quite a while on a project website and it works incredibly to deliver insight into what has changed, what is broken and more - it has been developed by an SEO team so its a content marketing SEO tools first which is exactly what was needed. Love the fact it always crawls!

Pros:

- fast, continuous updates

- tracking of improvement

- good team behind it who know what they are doing

- pricing

Cons:

nothing significant, most issues I have identified are on the roadmap now which is positive - that said its still early days

The ContentKing software has grown in its value immensely since I first came on as a beta customer.

The interface is super user friendly and email alerts for any potentially concerning changes the real-time crawler finds is so cool. If you act on the email alerts CK stops any technical SEO disasters before they ever happen!

Pros:

This is as close to a Google real time crawl emulator as you'll get!

Cons:

Some terminology takes a little bit of understanding/learning

Thanks for the nice words Pete! It would be great if you could share the specific terms that can be improved (we're always learning!). Please drop me a message here or via email at vincent@contentkingapp.com :)

I've been using this for some time now. I recommend all my clients get setup on it and it has saved the day in a lot of situations. It picks up changes faster than a human or running your standard crawl software in intervals and that alone is a great value to companies. Having crawl data of your site that is always up to date provides more value than you know, it is one of those things that you don't know you need it until you have it.

Pros:

Great product. Glad to see folks pushing the boundaries of what SEO software can be. The change tracking, saved my bacon several times <3.

Cons:

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ haven't found anything yet. I'd love an agency account but I think they are working on that.

Thanks for your kind words Evan! As a matter of fact, we have specific accounts designed for agencies. They need more flexibility than regular customers, you'll find more info on https://www.contentkingapp.com/l.... Let me know if anything is unclear, or if you want to do a quick call to help you on your way!

Onsite SEO has always been inherently problematic in that it's almost entirely reactive. You don't typically notice issues until they're already affecting your site.

ContentKing tackles that issue, IMO, quite effectively: It monitors your site for changes in real time and alerts you as soon as anything bad happens.

For example, we had a mixup while pushing a site update and an entire directory of content ended up blocked by our robots.txt. Normally it would've taken days or even weeks for us to realize that search engines weren't crawling the pages in that directory, but ContentKing notified us within literal minutes of the change and saved us a huge amount of potential missed traffic.

Every SEO I know has experienced a situation where one small (usually inadvertent) change resulted in serious site issues. The accompanying panic and scramble to diagnose/fix aren't fun. And that's why I like ContentKing so much - it takes care of the little things so I don't have to, and frees up my time to focus on the bigger picture.

Pros:

The most helpful hands-off SEO tool I've ever used - you set it up and it lets you know the second your site has an issue.

Cons:

None to mention - development is ongoing and timely, so lots of new features on the horizon to look forward to.

Hey Ryan, that's an amazing review! Thank you so much 😻

I'd recommend Contentkings if you are looking for an easy way to scale site auditing. The tool does some really great and unique checks like finding out which pages are missing from the sitemap. I also loved the feature to find out missing (visual) analytics from pages.

Pros:

Unique and advanced technical analyses, easy to use interface

Cons:

The pricing structure is not based on a flat 'per site' but instead on number of pages which can be hard to calculate

Thanks for the kind words Martijn! As for the pricing structure: I understand what you mean. I've passed your feedback on to the product team so they know about it.

Been using it for several months and really impressed so far. Just being able to check changes over time makes it worth it alone.

Pros:

Instant notifications if someone goes wrong. The ability to actually have a historic overview of changes are great.

Cons:

A bit clunky UI but it's continuously improved from what I've seen.

Hi Axel, thank you for your feedback! :) If you have any suggestions to improve the UI, please drop me an email at vincent@contentkingapp.com or share it here :)

I really like this software. The real time data insights it gives you are invaluable, but when managing multiple clients is where it comes into its own.

ContentKing enables me to more productive with my current clients, and provides an extra layer of "SEO Security" that I had been looking for. IE: Now I feel way more informed, even with my minor clients.

Ever had a client change URL structure and not tell you mid week? It happens. CK will tell you instantly, and keep an entire change history of your URLs = no more losing data/disasters as long as their site is set up in ContentKing!

Pros:

Real time, Unique insights & Data.

Cons:

UI was clunky, its improving all the time, and I currently have no complaints with i

Many thanks for the kind words Tom, great to hear :)

Very nice tool for observing changes on their own pages, that is what developers changed at the last deploy and competition in reverse engineering what they do.

Pros:

- very useful to keep keep big websites healthy according to G seo guide

- easy to use and understand

Cons:

- missing keywords positions reports

Thank you very much Roman! :)

When I signed up to CK, I thought it was a Deep Crawl killer. I was wrong. They're different products, marketed at doing different things.

Deep Crawl is more of a deep, sophisticated analysis that's "on demand", whereas CK is proactive and alerts you to changes before any potential damage is done.

I feel like you still need both products to succeed at on-site SEO. CK is a must-have for large sites where new pages/posts are added daily, and changes are frequently made. It's important to keep track of editors - to ensure no mistakes happen. In addition, Deep Crawl is needed as it does dig a bit further and catch things that CK would miss, or doesn't crawl for.

IMO, get CK and get the daily updates and constant monitoring. Use deep crawl for an audit every 2-4 weeks.

Pros:

Affordable, effective, handles scaling well

Cons:

Can seem quite "weak" compared to Deep Crawl on some points

Thank you very much for your nice words Mary :) Regarding our auditing suite: although we have the most important things covered (enough for most people) it's true that there are some specific tests lacking at the moment. We're working very hard on extending the coverage of our auditing suite at this very moment and expect to launch an array of new tests soon. Please drop me an email at vincent@contentkingapp.com to let me know which tests you would look to see added first.

I've been using ContentKing for a while now and it's really helped me stay on top of any changes that are made to my clients' websites. Any time a client makes a change to their site that could negatively affect their SEO, ContentKing lets me know which in turn enables me to stay on top of the issues and not face unexpected surprises at the end of a month. Highly recommended to agencies that manage multiple clients, as well as in-house SEOs working in multi-team environments.

Pros:

Great real-time SEO tool that keeps you on top of any website changes that can affect your organic search visibility

Cons:

Sometimes hard to find and filter some common issues, but they're constantly improving the UI

Awesome Barry, thank you very much for your input! :)

We use this tool already for more than a year and this helped us to improve our websites. And also, to be sure that we would find out if something on the websites was changed which could have negative results.

Pros:

The tool to monitor and improve your websites and to be sure you don’t have to worry about negative surprises.

Cons:

None

Thanks so much for your kind words. Happy we're helping you sleep at night :)

We've been using ContentKing for a few months in Runecast and I love the control and visibility it provides. It comes with tons of intelligence and provides you with clear actionable insights on how to keep your SEO and content in best shape.

Pros:

complete visibility of your content and historical changes

smart alerts

no initial configuration

delicious UI

nice reports

Cons:

none

Thank you so much for your awesome review! :)

If I had the funds, I'd have ContentKing scanning every one of my sites and my clients. It's an awesome tool.

Pros:

Simple interface / Great features / Keeps you aware of where you stand with each page.

Cons:

Agency pricing is a little costly when trying to start out.

Thanks for your kind words Brandon! :)

Overall it didn't fit my immediate needs, however, ContentKing is on my short list of products that I will get when my client base is large enough.

Pros:

For Technical SEO - I can't imagine a better tool. Capturing changes without having to run monthly audits, brilliant.

Cons:

Currently there are no metrics on how changes affect traffic, and no "exclusion" tool, so some directories don't count toward your count.

Upvote (2)Share
Thank you for the kind works Joshua :) Small correction: we do have an "exclusion" tool, see: https://www.contentkingapp.com/s... :)

One of the first users. This is how a product should be. Frequent updates with great features. .

Pros:

Simple and helpful

Cons:

None found yet

Thanks a lot Hans!

Been using CK for a half year now (not sure why that isn't an option on PH). I still dig Kevin, CK's friendly on-boarding mascot. He pointed me in the right direction until I learned the ropes then gets outa my way once I got there. And he's still good for a joke or two once in a while.

CK has saved me so much time that I would normally spend sifting through the pages manually checking to make sure nothing was off. Can't imagine running my business without it now.

Pros:

peace of mind. now nothing goes haywire on my website without me knowing. the prioritization is awesome too. 2 grateful thumbs way up!

Cons:

CK is so feature-packed that it almost feels like too much machine for my small website. best suited for agencies, or larger websites id say

Thanks for the kind words Kyle, much appreciated. I'll be sure to pass it on to the rest of the team, this is going to make them smile :)

I like that it's easy to set up and try, so if you're in the market for something like this, give Content King a go.

Pros:

Could-based, provides useful insights for website optimization and content management. Free trial is always a plus in my book.

Cons:

Nothing worth mentioning.

Thanks Igor, good to hear you like what you're seeing. We're flattered you couldn't think of any cons. Should you think of something (anything at all) that you'd like to see us add or change - please let me know. You can add it here, or email me at steven@contentkingapp.com.

We've used Content King for a couple of months and the team have been really supportive, quick to respond to requests and happy to work with our use cases to implement additional features.

We're super impressed and the pricing is competitive with other tools that don't offer the "continuous crawling" which stands out for this product. We're in the throws of rolling this out across our entire client base.

Pros:

Great UI (Our team love it) / Cloud Based / Pricing / Frequently updates / Constant Crawling

Cons:

None
