What brought you to Monsido?
We were looking for a web governance system that would help us locate bad links, monitor health, find spelling issues, and provide us an opportunity to cross check former staff to make sure their information was removed from the site. We were with a different company and due to budget constraints started looking at alternative options and discovered Monsido.
How does Monsido help you find errors?
It has been a good indicator of errors and has shown some things that our previous company didn’t pick up on, like the scope of the meta descriptions that we still have need of and some other areas which weren’t highlighted in quite the same way.
Realistically, I wouldn’t be aware of the errors without Monsido. In that respect, to have a report guaranteed once a week and the option to run a scan more frequently has definitely provided us with that comprehensive overview. Something like Google Analytics can tell us a lot about our site traffic but it doesn’t break down where the issues are. In that sense, it is definitely time well spent. I look forward to splitting out and getting more staff involved in Monsido. When that happens, Monsido will save me even more time.
What is your favorite feature of Monsido?
I really appreciate the policy feature, which is important for us. The SEO tab has also been valuable. I spend some time in there checking where we are at with meta descriptions and duplicate headings and fixing up that.
How do you go about fixing errors?
I usually always start with broken links and then go to SEO. One of my projects is to wrap up some of those top SEO issues, which are currently ranked as meta descriptions and images.
I appreciate that Monsido’s dashboard gives high level errors and ranks them. I typically do follow Monsido’s ranking of how we should proceed with addressing the issues.
