September 2011: Searchmetrics, the leading supplier of search analytics software, will carry out all its advertising exclusively via the network of the Commission Junction (CJ), the world’s largest affiliate marketing network. The programme will initially run in four core markets including Germany, France, UK and USA and is set to be extended to a total of 15 countries globally.
The Searchmetrics Essentials software is modular in design. The modules, SEO+SEM and Social, provide a quick, targeted overview of a website’s visibility. Thanks to competitive analysis and detailed search options, these modules offer a decisive edge over competitors. The Social module accesses Searchmetrics’ social media statistics database, the largest of its kind in the world, which analyses domains internationally and pinpoints the most popular pages in social networks.
