ContentKing overview

What is ContentKing?

ContentKing is a cloud-based platform that provides digital marketing agencies, eCommerce businesses, and other online organizations with real-time SEO auditing and 24/7 content change tracking. The solution helps to improve and maintain search engine visibility with tools for SEO auditing, monitoring, change tracking, and insights to help users spot unexpected changes and issues before visitors and search engines do.

ContentKing’s SEO auditing tool intelligently and continuously audits the website’s pages, picking up on changes in the website's robots.txt file, XML sitemaps, or domain configuration. The auditing tool delivers actionable tasks, without the static of false positives and non-issues, displaying only the items that are important to the user. The auditing suite analyses the website’s platform 24/7 to ensure it’s always in its best state, and all auditing results are immediately available within the platform. ContentKing’s segments feature allows users to create logical groupings of pages in order to focus audition and optimization efforts on the pages that need the most attention.

ContentKing monitors SEO issues on pages in real time, checking for any page titles that could have suddenly gone missing, or pages that have become unavailable. SEO monitoring tools also keep track of any added, removed and redirected pages, as well as give a clear overview of changes within pages, and everything that’s been happening on the website. Once a change or issue has been spotted, ContentKing sends out email alerts to notify users if something on the website is broken. Users can also view all alerts on a timeline and follow their real-time status, sorted and grouped together by day. The smart alerting algorithm knows to only send an alert if an event is significant enough, and users can configure alerts on a website-by-website basis.

The SEO change tracking interface provides a full history of all changes on the website for a full historic record on changes in page titles, meta descriptions, hreflangs, or canonical links. ContentKing gives users an up-to-date view on all issues, page changes, alerts and segments through the real-time dashboard, which enables users to visualize all website data and drill down to any level. Additional features include collaboration tools, as well as integration with Google Analytics and other external platforms via the API.

Life saver on migrations & continuously checking all our clients

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2020-05-11
Review Source: Capterra

ContentKing has become an integral part of the service we offer clients, we give clients access and almost sell it through to them.

Pros
Having used ContentKing for several years now, the value it adds to our clients - being the first to spot when things break, constantly monitoring before / during / after a migration - being able to see changes is incredible. I have recommended this tool now to all my friends because it really is the best. Strength is in simplicity, I put a client in, I get results I don't worry too much about configuration at first - but then I can 'tune' it to capture far more data on the results.

Cons
The only thing missing at the moment is JavaScript - I know this is being worked on, every other suggestion I have made has been jumped on but this is a real challenge, my only other complaint is that the export is a Zip CSV which when I just want a dozen URLs is a bit of a challenge, however you can link through to filtered reports.

Website SEO (and general health) monitoring made easy

Used weekly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Content King has made it possible for me to continuously keep a finger on the pulse of my client's websites. This is a big step up from intermittent diagnostic scans.

Pros
1) Website Overview: With Content King I can see the whole picture of a website: How the URLs are laid out, the health score of each page, and any problems/issues they may have (including broken links or pages that can't be indexed). 2) Track Changes: What truly sets Content King apart from any other scanning tool I've used is: Content King tracks changes. It's not a one-off scan, or merely a recurring scan. Content King keeps a running list of the changes for each page. If you're in the businesses of monitoring client websites and providing maintenance, this is a game changer. Example: Content King notified me that several pages had gone "missing" on one of my client's sites. Turns out, they were consolidating several pages into one new page. However, they hadn't setup any 301 redirects to let Google know they weren't merely removed. Thanks to Content King, I was aware of the change and was able to advise my client accordingly. 3) Easy to Use: Content King has a wonderfully designed user interface. Feels fresh and new. 4) Website Migration: I haven't had the opportunity to use Content King to monitor the success of a website migration yet, but I'm looking forward to that. 5) Notifications and Reports: Content King notifies me of any major issues that pop up on a website, and they also send a weekly summary/graph so I can see an overview of what's going on with each of the websites I monitor. 6) Support: Very helpful and responsive support.

Cons
1) False Positives: Occasionally there are false positives where Content King reports a page as missing when the page is there. Luckily, when you view a page in Content King, it immediately re-scans/checks that URL, which can clear up any false positives right away. 2) Weekly Report Links: When reviewing the weekly report email, clicking the change in health and issues metrics goes to the website's dashboard rather than a view of specific changes that happened over the last week. I'd like to see that improved.

Hi Brandon, thanks so much for your review!

Regarding your suggestions for improvement: we've resolved the problem with the occasional false positive and are currently working on displaying changed issues straight from the email report. Thanks again for your feedback!

Pros
Value for money is really high. Multiple crawls per day, so you are notified of issues and updates right away.

Cons
It's a relatively new tool, so there are some minor features that are still in progress. However, the team is very responsive and helpful and updates often.

ContentKing is a great analytical tool that has given us greater insight into our clients' websites.

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

ContentKing has allowed us to keep better track of our clients' websites, discover new opportunities for optimization, pinpoint content management risks and focus our efforts to educate our clients.

Pros
Our clients rely on us to optimize their websites and boost traffic and conversion. Our work is never finished, which means we need tools that never stop looking. One of the biggest advantages of ContentKing is that it supports us in every step of our process. New clients often think they need a complete rebuild of their website. ContentKing helps us determine whether that is actually necessary and, if so, why it is necessary. And once we've built the new website, it keeps track of a wide range of important on-site metrics that might slip through the cracks otherwise.

Cons
ContentKing requires users to specify an allotment of pages for each website they want to track. While this certainly helps keep the total number of tracked pages within the bounds of our plan, it is often difficult to determine exactly how many pages a given website has in advance. It would be helpful if ContentKing gave some insight into this number, allowing us to more accurately adjust the tracking budget.

Very easy to use and it keeps me up to date about the status of many websites.

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
The tool gives me live updates about changes on a website which is very helpful when you work with many clients at an agency. When you work with big websites (10.000 plus pages) it's very helpful you don't have to crawl a websites yourself but you just have to log in to access your websites data.

Cons
Exporting data to Excel can be done eassier, I have to add the domain of a website to the URL myself. Also when I check the hreflang tag I want to see which countries are linked in a overview. Now I only can see there is a tag, which is already very helpful but seeing which countries and languages are used would be easier.

Response from ContentKing


Hi Marc,

Thank you for your review!

Regarding your comment on exports: we've added the "Full URL" column which contains both the protocol (HTTP or HTTPS) and the domain name, so that's solved. Thanks for your input!
