Case Study: How Seer Interactive avoided 100% of the traffic being removed from SERPs with ContentKing Alerts
Seer Interactive was performing weekly audits for their client's websites, but found this left them vulnerable to changes and issues that arose between scheduled crawls.
That's when they discovered ContentKing. With real-time alerts, the team could immediately detect issues that may have gone unaddressed.
Katelyn Sidley, Technical SEO Manager at Seer Interactive: "ContentKing has been great in giving us visibility into changes on our clients sites in real time! We are able to discover problems like noindex tags and others BEFORE experiencing the drop in our client's traffic."
