1 – Why use 'Search Insights.'

Analyzing search terms users utilize to find the right content is a crucial activity for Brand Leaders and Platform owners. By understanding search terms, you can improve content, metadata, tags, and more available in Asset Libraries and Guidelines.

Here are a few exemplary Use Cases

  • Understand search engagement to identify the best and least performing Guidelines & Libraries (overall all)

  • Understand searches to identify well-performing brand content or gaps in the brand offering

  • Improve brand discoverability through optimizing tags & metadata of brand assets based on search term analysis

  • Optimize access points such as filters and facets for a seamless brand platform search experience

To make this a seamless experience, we provide multiple options that allow you to analyze Multibrand environments.
