US Brands Missing Out By Not Letting Mobile App Content Appear In Google Searches, Finds New Study

Marcus Tober, CTO and founder of Searchmetrics

Searchmetrics research suggests only 20% of iOS apps and 30% of Android Apps are able to support Google app indexing

San Mateo – March 9, 2016 – Many brands are failing to let content from their apps show up in Google’s organic search results according to new research from Searchmetrics, the leader in search and content performance. These firms are potentially missing out on valuable app traffic, engagement and conversions.

In its study of the 100 most visible websites in Google US searches[1], Searchmetrics found that 84% offer an Android App, however only 30% of these had implemented support for Google’s App Indexing (also known as deep linking) facility which lets Google index and show relevant pages from their apps in its mobile search results. Of the 88% of sites in the Searchmetrics analysis that offer an iOS app, even fewer – just 19% – were found to be supporting deep linking.

The following impressive technologies made the cut because they improve convenience, productivity, and efficiency (in addition to having that barely definable “wow” factor).

Bryan Ruby Says Goodbye To CMS Report

CMS Report Logo

Over the years, I've told people that CMS Report is a side business. While I would never become rich from this blog, I've been lucky enough to have been able to put a little extra cash in my wallet from this website's ad revenue. In truth, what has actually sustained CMS Report is not money but my passion for information systems. I absolutely love this magical process where people, hardware, software, and infrastructure come together to improve the business or organization. A decade ago, I could find no better example of information systems in the real world than the content management system. I decided to write about CMSs and created a blog and website to host those articles. After spending ten years as this site's founder, editor, and primary writer I've decided it is time for me to move on to some new challenges.

Data Centers Can Be a Sound Investment Strategy in 2016

Big Data

If one thing is clear, big data has a bright future ahead of it. More businesses and organizations than ever before have bought into the idea of collecting vast amounts of data, analyzing it, storing it, and eventually using it to improve operations, make accurate forecasts, and even create new products and services. With such tremendous potential, many investors have seen big data as a clear target for growth. Pinpointing just how to invest in it, however, has been a challenge. One could notice a promising startup and ride it out as the business grew or failed, depending on what they offered. A more likely scenario that investors are paying more attention to is that of data centers. In many ways, data centers are the hub from which all big data analytics is done, and as big data continues to grow, so will the data centers that feed it.
