Digital Science drives search visibility for its online software products with Searchmetrics

Searchmetrics SEO software helps tech startups target scientific researchers

London, 24th January 2013 Digital Science, a technology company which serves the needs of scientific research, is using the Searchmetrics SuiteTM search and social analytics software to drive search engine visibility for its online products.

Digital Science develops its own products and partners with entrepreneurs to create the next generation of tools for scientific research, including recording and collating research and lab data more efficiently and accurately. The web based software from the company and the businesses it invests in are sold online, which means search visibility is essential.

"We use Searchmetrics to look after the SEO needs of nine different web sites which promote specific products. Most of our customers find us through search - it's probably our most important marketing channel and the Searchmetrics Suite helps us ensure we're keeping our sites optimised and visible for the main search engines," said Alan Hyndman, Digital Marketing Executive at Digital Science.

The Searchmetrics Suite is an online subscription service that automates many aspects of SEO analysis, monitoring and reporting for agencies and in-house search marketers. It provides search performance data and analysis relating to multiple domains to support campaign measurement and planning.

"In the past we had to put a lot of manual effort into keeping sites optimised with the help of free or low cost tools," explains Hyndman, "But Searchmetrics helps us save time and effort by providing very fast, reliable up-to-date data. For example the site optimisation feature instantly tells us if any of the pages on our sites have errors or are poorly optimised. Previously we would have had to do a manual page by page review with a paper checklist - and it would be easy to miss stuff."

The link auditor within the Searchmetrics Suite gives the company useful competitive insights by providing an analysis of the backlink profiles of competitor web sites according to Hyndman:

"We can see where their links are coming from and which keywords they are focusing on which tell us a lot about competitor strategies."

In future Digital Science plans to make greater use of the social analytics data provided within the Suite to track and measure social media shares of their web content. Because it is selling to a global audience of scientific researchers, the company will also be able to benefit from the large volume of international search data available within Searchmetrics Suite which now covers a total of 123 countries with 261 search engine/country combinations now possible.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
