It is no secret that internet use has skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic, but “internet use” does not always positively relate to online search. In fact, internet fatigue from other activities such as virtual meetings and overuse of apps could even have an adverse effect on search. This is why now more than ever search optimization engine (SEO) vendors need to remain hyper-vigilant to offer their users value that captures the factors beyond just ranking, and consider benefits tied to competitive positioning, content marketing, and overall marketing and business efforts.

At Conductor, we have always focused on SEO as a part of our customers’ larger Organic Marketing strategy, and we are humbled to see our users recognize us for efforts to connect with them deeply as we are named a gold medalist in the 2021 SoftwareReviews SEO Data Quadrant. This report extremely important to us as a customer-first company, as the results involve gathering intelligence directly from our users on their satisfaction with both product features and their experience with our organization. Aggregated emotional response ratings are included in the areas of service, negotiation, product impact, conflict resolution, and strategy and innovation to create a powerful indicator of overall user sentiment toward the vendor and its product – all from the software users’ point of view. SoftwareReviews calls this insight the Net Emotional Footprint.   

“Today’s consumers routinely begin their journey to your brand with a simple search on Google or Bing.

The 2021 SEO SoftwareReviews Data Quadrant report shows that Conductor outperforms other vendors in Business Value Created, Breadth of Features, and Content Optimization, among other categories. Here are 3 examples of how we’ve delivered on this:
