Global Data Cube

Understand the demand and performance for your content

At BrightEdge our top value is customer success, which means delivering innovations to help our customers stay ahead in the competitive search landscape. Our goal is to be the best partner in content performance, which is why we consistently deliver the most advanced technology and content marketing.

For over six years, the BrightEdge Data Cube has been at the foundation of BrightEdge S3, powering our Customizable Recommendations, Search Opportunity Forecasting, Page Reporting, and much more. In that time we’ve continuously enhanced the Data Cube, and are now exposing this lightning fast, research on-demand technology to our customers. The Data Cube provides marketers with the insights they need to make strategic business decisions that drive revenue. Only an enterprise SEO company would design and maintain such a useful resource.

Access billions of pieces of data on-demand

The BrightEdge Data Cube is a massive content repository, the industry’s largest data set, made up of billions of pieces of information including keywords, search terms, rich media, and content, along with its performance on the web. BrightEdge processes more than 100 terabytes of data each week. We do so because today’s marketers need a massive data set to be able to understand their entire organic search footprint and build a competitive strategy to win. The Data Cube delivers to marketers the same level of big data processing power and scale that Facebook and Twitter bring to the consumer space.

Perform research, identify opportunities, and explore competitive strategies

Within one centralized view, marketers may perform either URL-based or keyword-based research in real time. BrightEdge provides two ways to access the Data Cube. With Goal Based Research we help marketers quickly identify the data that matters most, aligning content performance with business outcomes. With Freeform Search marketers can enter in a keyword or URL in the same way a Google search is performed.

Research can be performed in two ways: Goal Based or Freeform

Win with Contextual Recommendations

Improve performance with semantically-related topics powered by the Data Cube

About Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI): Web content is crawled by a search engine and the most common words and phrases are collated and identified as the keywords for the page. LSI looks for synonyms related to the title of your page.

For example, if the title of your page was “Outdoor Furniture,” the search engine would expect to find words relating to that subject in the content of the page as well, e.g. “patio furniture”, “patio sets”, “patio umbrella”, “adirondack chairs,” and “porch swing”.

Seamless integration with your content performance workflow

At BrightEdge one of our core tenets of product design is that data is only as good as what users can do with it. Research is only meaningful when it’s actionable. That’s why when we built the BrightEdge Data Cube, rather than creating a standalone research tool, we instead built and integrated this research technology into our platform. With the BrightEdge Data Cube brands have an end-to-end workflow for driving performance. After discovering keywords that work well for your competitors, you can prioritize keywords, and then optimize them in BrightEdge S3.
