The October 2016 release introduces five new Web Presence Dashboard Templates designed to guide users to the data and insights they need to make actionable SEO, content optimization and digital marketing decisions.

The first four dashboards are collections of Data Beacons focused on answering questions related to Keywords, Content, Competition and Website Traffic through Analytics. The fifth is a Discovery Dashboard, which aims to enable users to identify the right keywords, content and competitors to focus on. Each of these templates can be cloned and customized with fewer or additional Data Beacons from the library to suit your organization’s specific needs. Custom Beacons displaying external data may also be created upon request.

Please contact your Client Success Manager or if you need any help configuring or using any of these Dashboard Templates.
