Dr. Horst Joepen, CEO, Searchmetrics, said in a release, “Searchmetrics Essentials incorporates proprietary data to ensure that customers have accurate, high-quality information that they can trust to make smart marketing decisions.”
“Many tools on the market pull from third-party data sources, but this provides no unique advantage. Our data includes more than just raw numbers, but actionable analytics to help companies quickly take advantage of opportunities all within one dashboard -- Searchmetrics Suite, our flagship solution,” Joepen added.
Searchmetrics Essentials goes beyond Searchmetrics’ capabilities in search visibility standard, which enhances Website performance on search engines by launching a powerful social visibility component. The social visibility of Websites is indicative of the popularity of companies on media networks and can be monitored over time in order to measure the impact of active social campaigns.

Searchmetrics Suite, with Searchmetrics Essentials enables companies to instantly research the visibility of Websites, market verticals and social media presences in the same workspace where they do all major project activities.

Searchmetrics Essentials helps in the analysis of domains and keywords by organic, paid and universal (video, images, news, shopping, maps) search results and in determining popular content on social networks and compare “likes,” “shares,” “comments,” “tweets,” and others. It also helps in locating marketing advantages online from competitive and industry analysis.
Officials added that Searchmetrics Essentials enable the prediction of ROI by understanding the monetary value of organic, paid and universal search traffic and in adjusting quickly to algorithm changes and competitor campaigns.
