“With Insights, we don’t have to go into the trenches to mine the data”, said Carlos Spallarossa, Director of SEO, L'Oréal. “We improved Kiehl’s presence on Quick Answer box by incorporating step-by-step recommendations from BrightEdge Insights.”

“Our latest innovation, BrightEdge Insights, is bringing the power of AI and deep learning to marketers everywhere”, said Jim Yu, CEO and Co-founder of BrightEdge. “The power and flexibility of BrightEdge Insights is helping our customers solve complex problems––problems that they could not have solved without AI and machine learning.

Driving Adoption of Artificial Intelligence Across Marketing

BrightEdge Insights is powered by the industry's first and most powerful deep learning engine, DataMind. Acting like a marketer’s personal data analyst, Insights continually works in the background, analyzing billions of data points, filtering out the noise, and identifying changes outside the normal behaviors. BrightEdge Insights then prioritizes the most relevant findings, so marketers can focus on the initiatives with the biggest impact to their business. All of this is done at a scale and at a speed not possible for an individual.

BrightEdge Insights and DataMind are powered by an extensive wealth of data BrightEdge has accumulated over ten years. As BrightEdge’s AI capabilities leverage an expanding unified data store of first and third party data, such as Google Search Console, web analytics data, and BrightEdge Data Cube it becomes easier for marketers to deliver a better customer experience and increased performance across all digital channels, content marketing and organic search.

BrightEdge Insights helps seasoned SEO experts and digital marketers to stay ahead of constant change and prioritize what really matters. Insights acts like another colleague, helping SEO marketers uncover things that might have been missed.

“I can spend six hours a day mining data for bugs or opportunities, or, I can open BrightEdge Insights in the morning and have two tickets filed before I finish my coffee”, said Zander Buteux, Sr. SEO Manager of “This speed-to-opportunity-discovery–whether it is missing page titles or low-quality redirects–allows me to both build a stronger business case and dive deeper to find more insights before lunch.”

“I was surprised to see 404’s reported by Insights because I thought I have kept my site up to date”, said Matthew Wims, SEO Manager of Schneider Electric. However, the 404’s that Insights showed were accurate. Insights make me feel good that I am not missing out on important site hygiene issues.”

Using Machine Learning to Tackle Complex Issues

Machine Learning is powering BrightEdge’s visual parsing technology, which classifies an ever-expanding set of Search Engine Results Page (SERP) by category, layout and intent. Since 84% of keywords have feature snippets and 25% of keywords include Quick Answers, it is imperative for marketers to understand each SERP and how it affects traffic and performance.

“If you are using BrightEdge, you are an AI-marketer,” said Albert Gouyet, VP of Operations for BrightEdge. “Our customers have an advantage because they leverage our powerful deep learning engine, DataMind, with our gold standard in data, the largest, most accurate data set in the industry. Instead of providing hundreds of recommendations, Insights simplifies and focuses on a handful of the most important recommendations, making it easy to see real results from AI.”
