Two examples to highlight the importance of technical SEO

SEO is a vital part of any successful digital marketing strategy. And when done properly it has huge benefits to any business. Here are two convincing statistics to show how important SEO software is for marketers to use:

About OnCrawl and how it helps marketers

At the very beginning, OnCrawl was meant to be a one-time data project.

In 2013, François Goube and Tanguy Moal developed a crawler technology specifically for the needs of the largest French ecommerce website, called Cdiscount, who has been using OnCrawl since then.

When François and Tanguy got the first results out of their own platform, they realized they wanted to make these advanced search technologies accessible to the greatest number of SEO professionals.

Created for ecommerce, online publishers, and SEO agencies who need a deeper site crawling and daily monitoring, OnCrawl currently works with over 1,000 companies in 66 countries. With offices in France and Canada, OnCrawl has grown up to 50 employees and won 10 international awards.

OnCrawl helps SEO professionals solve their SEO issues by improving their organic traffic, rankings, and revenues. Driven by a strong tech spirit, OnCrawl gives search marketers easy access to the data they need by providing actionable and reliable dashboards and reports that marketers can leverage.

Why more and more customers are using OnCrawl

OnCrawl is currently the fastest growing SEO software on the market.

They have created the next generation of technical SEO platforms by integrating data and providing insights across the whole search engine optimization process.

Innovation is definitely in their DNA, and it’s why they have released the first R&D platform exploring the cross-path between technical SEO, data science, and machine learning.

Another of their core values is customer support. OnCrawl has a whole team of SEO experts to assist their customers and help them to go further and deeper into their SEO challenges.

On top of that, they have been recognized three years in a row as the best SEO tool in Europe and, last year, as Best Search Tool at the US Search Awards.

How OnCrawl has helped customers

An example of how OnCrawl has helped customers is: Murat Yatagan, VP of Growth at Brainly. Murat is not only an OnCrawl user but also one of its brand ambassadors. When he first started at Brainly, he conducted a full audit of the website using OnCrawl.

OnCrawl allowed him to see that the number of internal links pointing to legacy pages was actually decreasing Brainly’s website signals from the most valuable pages according to the company SEO strategy.

Murat knew he would have to explain the ROI of SEO for key pages and show the value of his SEO project. Using OnCrawl, he was able to earn the support of decision-makers and engineers in order to carry out the project successfully.

What made OnCrawl so valuable in this project was the ability to cross-analyze all of the available data in one place. This allowed Murat to go beyond data insight generation and regular monitoring. OnCrawl gave him easy access to the numbers and charts he needed to tell the right story to the people he’s working with.

Is there anything OnCrawl can’t do?

According to OnCrawl, their technology is only limited by its clients’ server limits. For example, the technology used by OnCrawl allows you to crawl at an infinite speed. Of course, this means that the actual speed used is determined by their client’s IT infrastructure.

They currently collect up to 25 million URLs per day, or approximately 1 billion web pages and 150 billion links per month.

OnCrawl’s price point

Like many SEO platforms, the pricing for OnCrawl is based on the number of pages you want to crawl and the number of log lines you want to analyze. In other words, it’s the size of your website and the amount of traffic it receives that determines OnCrawl’s monthly cost.

A subscription-based service, OnCrawl starts from 59USD per month. From there you can get a customized subscription plan for large websites. One key advantage of using OnCrawl is their support staff are SEO experts, so you know any troubleshooting you need will be reliable.

Their team is able to help you define your crawling strategy based on a wealth of industry knowledge. Whether you need your data analyzed, an optimized SEO roadmap, or suggestions for which KPIs to track in different reports, their team is there to help you every step of the way.

With this SEO technology, you can reliably improve your website’s overall Google presence, and start to see an increase in revenue from your SEO efforts.
