A year in search

2017 has been a hugely exciting year for search. We've made significant headway into voice search territory, we're collectively realising the burgeoning power of ecommerce leviathans like Amazon, and we - as marketers - are finally waking up to the power of search insight as strategic counsel for the entire business.

A year in Pi Datametrics: 2017

At Pi, we constantly have our finger on the pulse of search development, and have been innovating to support you in navigating these significant changes.

We've adapted to prepare you for voice search with our new 'Voice search audit' support, we're accelerating your share of voice growth with Market Intelligence advancements and we're working tirelessly to help you prove the value of search to prominent stakeholders, and increase your influence across the business with new 'Commercial reports'.

With significant updates and rapid evolution, it's clear to see why Pi is the solution of choice for some of the worlds biggest and most reputable brands.

Speed to insight:

Trending workspaces: Providing intelligence to news and content sites that are subjected to fast moving trending themes in their business.

Value-driving search data:

Search term group intelligence: An experience that allows users to explore the value of search term groups, before committing them to a workspace, and forecast/report on that value via Pi's reporting module.

Search console integration: Users will be able to plug SC into Pi for further insight.


Global growth acceleration:
