If you’re paying attention to current global internet penetration rates, you’re seeing the surge of internet users across the globe. Yet, most free online SEO and website ranking tools center on US English-based search queries and domains. Digital marketers working with global brands are often left missing the perspective they need to quickly assess local website performance from an international SEO and user engagement standpoint.
Many of us rely on a set of metrics from disparate sources to track global website performance, but what we really need is an easy-to-use tool that offers a quick understanding of our in-market findability and our global performance relative to our competitors.
Here to fill the gap is Global Site Score – a free online international SEO tool that provides valuable in-market data that digital marketers can actually use. With Global Site Score, you plug in up to three website URLs (sub-domains, ccTLDs or sub-directories will work too) and the tool returns a set of reports displaying your site content findability across major search engines in top international markets. It’s that easy.
What’s unique about Global Site Score is how the program factors actual search engine market share as well as content depth and indexability. Global marketers can quickly assess how much of their in-market content is indexed across major search engines in the countries where they do business. What’s more, they’re able to see how their in-market website stacks up against their competitors.
We’re really excited about Global Site Score and hope you will give it a try. The beta version of Global Site Score will be available this Friday (11/4/11) on globalmarketingops.com and we’d love to hear from you about how we can improve the tool. In fact, your input is so valuable to us, as a token of our appreciation, we’ll send a “Thank You” gift to the first 100 people who provide feedback and share Global Site Score with others on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
