What’s In It For You

If you’ve made it to this point in reading this post, then you are probably already thinking, “this is all great, but what’s in it for me?”

At Arteric, you will work side-by-side with our incredibly seasoned and talented developers to identify new and unique ways to apply data science and machine learning to SEO challenges. For example, we have used AI technology to build proprietary tools to help inform our SEO work. One tool uses machine learning and natural language processing to identify signals hidden in hundreds of thousands of user interactions. Another tool analyzes competitors’ content vs our client’s website to assess relative power and authority across topics.

With those same teams, you will work to identify best practices for technical SEO that can be standardized into Arteric’s technology-development process. This will allow you to expand your SEO skills with advanced analytics techniques in a one-of-a-kind way.
