BrightEdge Talks Wave of Organic Innovation for ContentIQ & HyperLocal

SAN MATEO, CA – February 28, 2017 - BrightEdge, the global leader in enterprise organic search and content performance, today launched ContentIQ and HyperLocal, innovations designed to drive marketers’ organic search revenue conversions. As search and content marketing disciplines converge it has become clear that marketers need to maximize the value of technology and the insights derived to deliver both compelling content and a great user experience.

Google’s desktop and mobile SERP results are constantly changing in line with changing consumer behavior. And according to new BrightEdge research 76% of Google search results show different results on mobile devices compared to desktop. This is because content which is believed to be optimized for high rankings on desktops may in fact rank differently or poorly on smartphones. Evolving organic search practices for both desktop and mobile, in line with Google change, is essential to modern day search marketing success.

“In a world where visibility and performance are keys to marketing success, BrightEdge ContentIQ and HyperLocal innovations help search marketers stay ahead of the changing search and content marketing landscape”, said Boaz Ronkin, VP of Product Marketing at BrightEdge. “This is especially important in a mobile-first world where mobile-friendly site structure and mobile specific content are essential for increasing traffic, conversions, and revenue”.

Introducing BrightEdge HyperLocal Enhancements

Google has taken the next step in providing the most relevant results to consumers – contextualizing SERPs to small geographical locations. Now, the same search query performed in nearby cities could result in different SERP experiences across different devices. According to BrightEdge research mobile results in local SERPs can vary dramatically – mobile results in San Francisco vs. mobile results in NYC are 68% different.

Using an aggregated view to assess organic performance, marketers can get a skewed view of how their customers experience search locally. To prioritize SEO and content marketing investments effectively, they need a higher resolution picture of where and when customers see their brands in organic search results.
