ContentKing, an Amsterdam-based startup providing an extensive SEO auditing, reporting and insights solution to digital marketing professionals worldwide, today announced that it closed a €350,000 seed funding round a the end of 2017. The funding was raised from Dutch business angels on the basis of a €3.5 million valuation.
Founded in 2015, ContentKing is a cloud-based service that provides real-time SEO auditing and change management to improve and maintain search engine visibility.
Vincent van Scherpenseel, CEO at ContentKing, stated: “This investment is a fantastic validation of our vision, idea and execution. I am incredibly proud of what our team has been able to accomplish so far. The additional capital will be applied to further support the growth of our team and marketing activities.”
With a team of 16 people spread across the Netherlands and Czech Republic, ContentKing is making its vision of “No more SEO surprises” a reality. Their solution, powered by intelligent algorithms which monitor and audit websites 24/7, provides agencies, as well as e-commerce and other online businesses worldwide with the ability to boost search engine visibility and manage unexpected changes.
ContentKing watchdogs tens of millions of web pages for global companies like TNT, British Telecom and Mitsubishi, who rely on it for round-the-clock SEO monitoring.
Vincent van Scherpenseel added: “From the start we’ve had this very clear vision: if search engines are constantly looking at your websites, then so should your tooling! There’s only one #1 rank in Google. When your website suffers from a technical problem or an unexpected content change and you don’t react in time, you lose out, while your competitor gains. When disaster strikes ContentKing actively alerts you, giving you the opportunity to resolve issues before search engines and visitors notice.”
