MAXAMINE Launches FindMAX(TM) for Comprehensive Search Engine Quality Control & Performance Management.
LAFAYETTE, Calif. -- MAXAMINE Inc., the pioneer and leading provider of High-Performance Site Analytics solutions, has launched FindMAX, the first solution of its kind to provide an objective assessment of search performance with tangible actions to improve results. FindMAX objectifies search engine performance by comparing actual to desired
results with unprecedented analytics to highlight specific site attributes compromising search productivity for both organic and enterprise search. EDS and Sun Microsystems have teamed with MAXAMINE as lead customers and development partners in pioneering the FindMAX solution.
Enabled by the MAXbot(TM) advanced scanning agent, FindMAX discovers, indexes and executes all objects and content associated with a website, not just an arbitrary subset. FindMAX captures pages, images, text, links, meta data, and scripts, along with documents and properties of PDF, Word, PowerPoint and more. FindMAX then identifies likely keywords through proprietary word density analyses. These keywords are then entered into search fields, and the resulting set of URLs are compared to the actual set associated with the underlying keywords. FindMAX spotlights relevant content missing from search results, while also flagging protected content which has been compromised through inadvertent inclusion in the index and published results.
"Just as in the 'physical' world, we have found that there is no substitute for a disciplined, systematic methodology in managing our web environment toward objective quality and compliance standards," said Michael Minchew, Director of eds.com. "Trial and error may have gotten the industry through the last decade, but Web 2.0 will demand much more."
It's really just common sense - successful enhancement of search performance requires objective measurement of search results," said Will Snow, Sr. Director, Web Platform Engineering. "Up to now, practitioners have struggled to improve results through a variety of methods, but without concrete metrics to quantify and monitor progress, it's been a bit like flying without instruments."
"Searching is important, but finding is critical," said Josh Manion, CEO of Stratigent, a leading web analytics consultancy and a MAXAMINE solutions partner. "FindMAX provides the systematic, disciplined methodology to take control of onsite search process and drive it toward tangible objectives through measurable actions. This technology will help improve search initiatives by filling a current gap within the industry."
FindMAX offers unprecedented searchability metrics to significantly improve both internal and external search performance, including:
* Document Property Analytics - FindMAX reports on the accuracy and consistency of document properties, including titles, subjects, keywords, and comments for PDF, Word, PowerPoint and other file formats.
* Multi-Attribute Page-Level Synchronization - FindMAX provides holistic reporting against relevant searchability attributes, including title, domain name, file name, H1 and H2 tags, initial paragraph content, last paragraph content, meta keywords, and meta description.
* Key-Link Analytics - FindMAX reports on the consistent use of key words across linked pages and within the link text to ensure optimal density and search productivity.
* Disciplined Site Management - As part of MAXAMINE's site quality and compliance management solutions, FindMAX will enable organizations to establish a simple, systematic and disciplined methodology in the management of web standards - enterprises will see the difference, and so will the search engines.
As more and more enterprises improve the quality, compliance and searchability of their web environments, fast, accurate and efficient retrieval of desired information will significantly improve to the benefit of online organizations, their visitors, search engine providers and ultimately the web-enabled society worldwide.
"We are privileged to be working with industry-leading visionaries like EDS and SUN on such a groundbreaking innovation," said Perry Kamel, MAXAMINE's chief operating officer. "When you consider the amount of time, energy and investment spent seeking information and improving search results, let alone the inefficiencies and opportunity costs associated with suboptimal 'finding', we believe FindMAX will have sweeping implications on the time, cost and quality associated with building, operating and using the web."
