BrightEdge Mobile Optimization Solution

Critical resources for mobile search success

BrightEdge was the first to release mobile technology in August 2013, including mobile analytics, mobile Share of Voice Reports, and Mobile Site Audit to assist brands in defining and executing a mobile search strategy.

In 2014 BrightEdge mobile research found that 62% of search results vary from mobile to desktop, that tablets and smartphones make up 35% of organic search traffic and mobile traffic was growing 10 times faster than desktop traffic. Misconfigured mobile websites lost 68% of smartphone traffic.

Since 2015 mobile search has many brands concerned about the impact of Google’s April 21 mobile algorithm update. Meanwhile, BrightEdge customers have had mobile technology in place for two years to help them understand their rank and the competitive landscape across 605 local, global and mobile search engines - equipping them to win in the competitive and strategic mobile battleground. BrightEdge research has calculated the impact of the mobile algorithm change in the first week on mobile SERP results.

How BrightEdge Helps with Mobile Optimization

BrightEdge takes mobile reporting beyond the webmaster and to the marketer with reporting that helps brands understand their content performance by device.

BrightEdge’s mobile reporting allows users to track and measure mobile device performance with things like:

  1. Measuring true rank by device in Universal Search (image, video, social).
  2. Visibility into local content performance by keywords and keyword groups across cities.
  3. Tracking and reporting on keyword trends and rankings across device type.
  4. Optimizing mobile campaign performance for ecommerce.
  5. Understanding the competitive landscape and “share of voice” for a brand across mobile devices.

BrightEdge Mobile Keyword Rank

With BrightEdge’s mobile for SEO, we’re able to grow our mobile performance month over month. It’s a great win for us internally because we are able to visually understand how mobile is performing by device type for our channel; internally we just don’t have that type of data.

BrightEdge for me is an extension of my team. It actually makes every one of my people about a person and a half. 

Our company is definitely focused on mobile. We want it to be a huge percentage of our business very soon. So having mobile search and SEO rankings from BrightEdge is going to be extremely helpful to us.
