NEW YORK, July 20, 2010 – Conductor Inc., the most widely-used SEO technology company, today announced that SecondMarket, the largest centralized marketplace and auction platform for illiquid assets, has selected Conductor Searchlight as its natural search technology solution. SecondMarket will leverage Searchlight to gain visibility and insight into its natural search rankings across thousands of keywords and to identify ongoing SEO priorities.
“Conductor Searchlight’s rank tracking capability will help SecondMarket track the keywords they target against the competition and its SEO recommendation engine will help keep SecondMarket at the forefront of natural search listings,” said Jeremy Smith, Chief Strategy Officer, SecondMarket. “Searchlight gives us insight into our natural search visibility and provides a metric driven SEO roadmap for us to follow. We have interviewed virtually everyone and we know this is the best solution out there. We have been thrilled with it.”
We’ve used the Searchlight technology to figure out where our optimization shortcomings are on our various Web pages, so we can make the right changes and track the organic rankings for the terms that we know are important.”
Conductor’s Searchlight continually analyzes large amounts of data, providing marketers with the ability to easily identify challenges in their strategy and improve their search ranking across hundreds or thousands of individual keyword terms – taking control of their brand’s natural search visibility and gaining insight into search engine optimization (SEO) programs. Searchlight’s SEO platform helps marketers manage natural search like any other marketing program and understand how their SEO ranks against their competitors.
“SEO is complex and ever-evolving; without the right technologies and expertise to analyze the data, marketers run the risk of getting bogged down in the analysis phase and overwhelmed by the data rather than spending time implementing the changes that will make them visible in natural search,” said Seth Besmertnik, CEO of Conductor. “SecondMarket is prime example of a company with the savvy to realize that SEO doesn’t wait for you to catch up with the times. Searchlight will quickly provide them with the data they need to constantly keep their SEO rankings high and visible.”
