Study Reveals Leading Global Brand’s Natural Search Visibility Still Poor – But Indicators Improving
NEW YORK, March 11, 2009 – Conductor, a leading provider of search engine optimization technology and services, today released a study of the Q4 2008 search visibility, optimization effectiveness and trends of the corporate and consumer facing brands of the Fortune 500.
The ongoing research project from Conductor is the first to systematically track the Fortune 500 brands’ natural search effectiveness over time. The Q4 study analyzes 4.1 million paid keywords, examines the paid/natural visibility correlation and investigates the effect of more specific ‘long tail’ searches for these brands.
“SEO is still in its infancy for the Fortune 500. From quarter to quarter you can easily see when brands and sectors have become effective in managing natural search,” said Conductor CEO, Seth Besmertnik. “We’re excited to be tracking the progress of these companies as the nascent search industry evolves.”
Key Takeaways of the Study
The companies examined were the top 500 public companies included in Fortune magazine’s 2008 Fortune 500 annual ranking of America’s largest corporations.
