Boost content efficiency with AI-generated tags

Poor title tags and meta descriptions can torpedo the results of even your strongest content. And with so many projects on your plate, it takes time to craft tags that will deliver results. That’s why we’re rolling out a new pair of AI tools to help you improve your content productivity.

A green lightbulb icon appears in a text box, prompting the user to click to generate the title tag or meta description.

Writing Assistant, Conductor’s all-in-one writing solution, accelerates your content workflows with AI-generated tag suggestions pre-optimized for your target topic. With just one click, instantly receive five options built using signals from top-ranking content, so you can spend your focus on creating great, helpful content.

Generate content outlines in seconds for any topic

Creating high-impact content is a tough task, requiring researching many different topics and digging through competitor search results. If you want to scale up your efforts while maintaining quality, you’ll need a way to quickly analyze the most important insights and turn them into an actionable blueprint for writing.

An automatically generated content outline shows in Writing Assistant's text editing interface. A call-out box provides options to accept, reject, or retry.

Within Writing Assistant, you can automatically generate a content outline custom-built for any target topic and goals. Combining Conductor’s content intelligence with generative AI, Writing Assistant researches your topic, analyzes competing content, and starts crafting outlines - without you lifting a finger. Tailor outlines around your exact content strategy by inputting your specific objective and audiences, ensuring your content will resonate and convert. Accept outlines you like, reject outlines you don’t, or keep fine-tuning outlines until you’re ready to write.

Quickly see the impact of every algorithm update

Between scanning news articles, comparing dates, and manually making notes, it can take hours to understand how your site and content respond after Google algorithm updates. Instead of spending time manually digging for answers, you need a platform that does the heavy-lifting for you and makes it easy to diagnose every performance spike or dip.

An annotation appears on a chart in the Keywords report. The annotation shows that a Google Algorithm Update and Google Incident occurred during the selected week.

With Public Event Annotations, automatically get context on how events like Google algorithm updates, Google incidents, and industry changes have impacted your results. Available in charts across the Keywords, Pages, and Page Details reports, each annotation shows a summary of events detected in that timeframe. And if you want more information, just click the event for a detailed breakdown on what occurred. Plus, our team of experts is constantly monitoring for new events to add so you’re always up to speed.

Upgrade your reporting workflow with GSC in Pages

Getting a clear picture of how audiences are engaging with your content both from the SERP and on your site is difficult when you’re navigating between data sets. To get the most value from all your content, you need an easy way to spot whether it’s a poor clickthrough rate or high bounce rate holding you back.

A table shows performance details across several URLs, and includes metrics like Sessions, Impressions, and Clicks.

With Google Search Console data in the Pages report, Conductor's comprehensive content measurement feature, you can access critical performance metrics side-by-side with your analytics data. Impressions, Clicks, Clickthrough rate (CTR), Average Position and the change values for each metric can all be seen in the Performance by Page table at the bottom of the report. Learn which pages are driving traffic but not converting, converting but not getting enough traffic, and more from one convenient location.

Find answers quickly with our revamped Knowledge Base

If you’re trying to get work done and a question pops up, you can’t afford to waste time digging around for answers. And you definitely don’t want a one-size-fits-all set of resources that may not bring you the level of information you need.

The home screen in the new Knowledge Base experience offers custom learning paths. Three of these paths are shown, "Learn", "Configure", and "Level Up", each directing users to content that meets their goals.

Conductor's refreshed Knowledge Base makes unlocking the full value of the platform simpler than ever. The new experience includes more intuitive site navigation options and streamlined article layouts, helping you quickly orient yourself and get where you need. With learning paths personalized to your specific needs and experience, new users looking to onboard, admin users hoping to configure, and current users wanting to level up can all find the right education fast. Simply navigate to the knowledge base from the Conductor dashboard and see the new look.

Stay at the top of your game with step-by-step workflows

Getting the most out of a platform is nearly impossible if you don’t have enough information to properly leverage it. Conductor’s Quick Start Tasks and on-demand education simplify education and training, providing immediate value regardless of your experience level.

A panel appears over the Conductor home screen, listing several goals customers can get workflow guidance around. Options include "SEO Fundamentals", "Build a report from a template", "Research a competitor", and more.

Quick Start tasks and in-line education are available for customers old and new. Just click the help menu (select “?”, “Get Started, then “Quick Start Tasks) to enable bite-sized onboarding paths through Conductor's most popular workflows. We’ve also added new educational windows to key areas like Keyword Groups, Page Groups, Actions, and Marketplace explaining features and surfacing helpful resources.

Conductor & ContentKing Achieve SOC 2 Type 2 Certifications

Today, it’s critical that organizations of all sizes take every measure to ensure their data, and their customers' data, will always stay protected. Conductor doesn’t partner with businesses that take shortcuts when it comes to security, and neither should you.

The AICPA SOC logo, a deep blue circle with white text, sits on top of an image of the Conductor home screen to represent the certification achievement.

Conductor and ContentKing, the two products in Conductor’s website intelligence suite, have both achieved SOC 2 Type 1 and 2 certifications. During the process, external auditors thoroughly tested the design and operating effectiveness of our security controls for confidentiality, security, and availability. Our customers can rest easy knowing their data is protected by industry-leading standards.
