Manufacturers have been investing to provide and optimize content material however had no method to predict what would make that content material findable by their prospects. I had myself run web sites and knew how laborious it was to determine this out.
Lem and I are each engineers and we labored laborious to construct the DataCube, the primary reverse index of the web. I’ll always remember the way it felt when our first prospects shared with us how we had helped them. It was thrilling to listen to about BrightEdge working as we had designed it – and much more thrilling to listen to about new use instances that our prospects found on their very own.

Our dream has at all times been to create that holistic platform that helps entrepreneurs win at each facet of search. And in order that early success of DataCube impressed us to construct ContentIQ as a part of our answer in 2017, permitting for cross-team governance and web optimization technical evaluation on an enterprise scale. We additionally created pixel parsing, permitting for a more true imaginative and prescient of prime rating SERPs. And with Autopilot, we created the one machine studying answer that improves search efficiency.
Now, we’re so excited to announce that we’re extending our holistic platform even additional by becoming a member of forces with Oncrawl. BrightEdge and Oncrawl have mixed as a result of holistic web optimization is just not simple. Getting it proper requires prime quality enterprise knowledge with a number of technical capabilities. At BrightEdge, we have now a complete web optimization suite and including Oncrawl’s superior technical web optimization capabilities by way of knowledge science will symbolize the way forward for enterprise web optimization.
