The Botify platform comprises three suites of tools: Botify Analytics, Botify Intelligence, and Botify Activation.

Botify Analytics unifies all your SEO data: log files, crawls, keywords, and engagement metrics to help customers gain insights into each stage of the organic search process. That data then powers Botify Intelligence, prioritized actions and alerts that save SEOs time and help them focus on the most critical tasks.

Finally, Botify Activation automates critical SEO tasks like indexing.

Favorite features of Botify’s SEO software:

  • Unifies log file analysis, crawl data, keyword insights, and engagement analytics to achieve visibility into your entire website through every phase of the SEO funnel.
  • Crawls your entire site just like Google would if it had unlimited resources, then pulls in your log files for comparison. See what percentage of your total content Google is crawling – critical for crawl budget optimization!
  • It’s fast. Botify crawls your HTML at 250 URLs/second and renders your JavaScript at 100 URLs/second, enabling comprehensive JavaScript SEO audits.
  • Audit the mobile version of your website with pixel-perfect screen emulation (rather than just changing the user-agent, which doesn’t allow for as precise mobile audits).
  • Using machine learning and prescriptive intelligence, Botify Intelligence & Botify Activation prioritize high-impact tasks, streamline typical SEO processes, and give SEOs back valuable time.
