SearchCenter 3.0

Web analytics leader, Omniture, will be announcing tomorrow, March 5, the latest release of SearchCenter, version 3.0.

During the 2008 Omniture Summit we were lucky enough to have a preview of the beta version before its release; as usual Omniture has delivered on many feature requests.

Here are some highlights:

1. Redesigned User Interface – it now has very intuitive navigation, integrated campaign management and key reporting metrics
2. Help and Community Page – SearchCenter now has links to relevant knowledge base articles and documents, plus the community plugs you in with Omniture experts.
3. Better Search Engine Integration – the tool is now plugged in to the latest API’s, plus support for Miva EU has been added.
4. Offline Data Integration – this is very powerful as it allows you to create improved bidding strategies and achieve closed-loop marketing by bringing in data from other sources such as CRM, call centers and ad serving software to name a few.
5. Portfolio Optimization – this optimizes keyword bids across a campaign for a specific metric such as ROAS, revenue, clicks or impressions. This is very cool for managing long tail keywords and seasonal campaigns.

Please don’t think I work for Omniture, but if you’re serious about online marketing you owe to yourself to learn more about the power of web analytics in general.
