Who We Are
The Search Monitor was founded by a group of search marketing enthusiasts. In 2003, we were part of the original team that pioneered KeywordMax, the first bid management tool to automate keyword bidding based on financial goals like CPA and ROI (now part of Digital River, Inc.)
What We Do
Our commitment is never to stop exploring new ways to automate information, intelligence, and work flow for sophisticated online marketers like you. We listen to our customers, we watch as the industry continues to evolve, and we adapt our solutions to best meet the needs of today with a look towards tomorrow.
Many ASP solutions are rigid platforms responding in slow motion to customer requests. We are not like that. We are not afraid to customize our solutions to meet your needs. We are not scared to move quickly. If you'd like a special report or a new way to view data, just ask us.
