Inquirer.net began tapping the data analytics services of Similarweb in February 2022 for online traffic monitoring and guidance in content and publication strategies.
Inquirer Interactive Inc. chair and president Paolo Prieto earlier said the partnership with Similarweb stemmed from the company’s desire to stay on top, which requires tools from a globally accepted ranking application.
Apart from providing data analytics and monitoring online traffic, Similarweb offers other benefits that can help Inquirer.net stay competitive in terms of content delivery and traffic generation.
Among them is being able to “make strategic decisions based on the most comprehensive, real-time view of competitive activity across all digital platforms.”
