Cotendo Introduces Powerful SEO Analytics Service for Comprehensive Monitoring of Search Engine Crawler Activity

New Cotendo Service Will Enable Content Providers -- Including E-Tailers Gearing Up for the Holiday Season -- to Rapidly Identify and Mitigate Performance Issues That Could Erode Their SEO Rankings

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  Cotendo, an innovative CDN and Site Acceleration Services Provider, today announced the latest addition to its CDN and Site Acceleration Services suite: the Cotendo Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Analytics Service. Cotendo SEO Analytics delivers sophisticated analytics and reporting on search engine crawler activity, empowering content providers to optimize website performance for improved user experience and elevated SEO rankings. The service is available immediately.

"Website crawlers dispatched by search engines like Google, Yahoo! and Bing scan the entire site, including slower-loading pages which, due to their poor performance, may not get as much traffic as faster-loading pages," said David Drai, Cotendo's Chief Technology Officer. "Using our SEO Analytics Service, content providers can rapidly identify those less-popular pages and then quickly fix their loading problem. The result: those pages now attract more traffic, and their increased popularity boosts the site's overall SEO ranking."

"Now that page speed is an important factor in Google's SEO ranking algorithm, we can't afford a downgrade by the search engine crawlers due to poor performance," said Anthony Johnson, Commercial Director, Contactmusic.com. "Cotendo's SEO Analytics Service plays a critical role in enabling us to raise our SEO ranking and, in turn, attract a greater number of visitors to our site and increase conversions."

The Cotendo SEO Analytics Service includes aggregated reports of all crawler activity, crawler comparison reports, detailed hits and error reports, object delivery time reports, error code reports, and customizable alerts. Reports and alerts are delivered daily, with fine time resolution, for maximum responsiveness.

Said Ronni Zehavi, Cotendo's CEO, "With our SEO Analytics reports, content providers are alerted to any performance problems immediately. They are ensured of always having a site whose performance earns high marks from the website crawlers -- leading to better site coverage and more traffic arriving from the search engines."
