Website intelligence to fuel audience growth for news websites & digital publishers

Publications’ websites can be large and unwieldy, with new articles posted daily and a huge amount of content accumulating in their archives. Managing media websites is a challenge, even for the most experienced publishers, developers, content managers, and SEOs.

With Lumar, you can streamline your publication’s digital operations, grow organic traffic to your articles with better technical SEO insights, provide a better user experience with improved site speed and structure, and easily monitor your site for any new issues that arise during the frequent additions of new content and features.

Getting technical SEO right is a foundational aspect of ranking well in the search engines — and thus, of being found by more potential readers and viewers.

Get your content in front of new audiences by getting it to the top of the SERPs. Lumar gives you the website intelligence you need to identify SEO issues, implement fixes, and reach more people.

Easily monitor frequently updated websites

Most publications’ websites introduce new content in the form of articles, videos, and blog posts on a dailiy basis.

With Lumar Monitor it’s easy to track how these frequent updates impact your overall site health and search performance, compare issues across different website sections or domains, and stay on top of SEO and page experience best practices.

A single source of knowledge about your website’s technical health lets everyone see how their efforts add up to audience growth and wider business impact, with less chasing between teams and no more blindspots.

Resolve common SEO issues faced by news media websites

Media sites face a unique set of challenges when it comes to SEO and search performance – from creating a strong site structure to house thousands of articles, to the perils of correctly implementing faceted navigation, and implementing search engine-friendly pagination and JavaScript rendering, there’s a lot to pay attention to when it comes to the technical health of your digital publication.

Lumar can help. We’ve simplified website monitoring, technical SEO analytics, and have built innovative new SEO QA automations to save your digital teams time and help you realize your site’s true commercial potential.

Instead of going to each site one by one and asking if work has been completed, I can quickly see if anything has been done and see the results and progress since then. It’s been a huge time saver and helped us see at a glance who’s been doing what. It’s been a huge, huge help.”

    “Lumar has saved us an enormous amount of time. So much so, we estimate without the tool, and to cover the vast array of SEO analytics and insights highlighted within Lumar, we would have needed to employ another full-time member of staff within our digital team.”

    “Lumar is fundamental when it comes to technical audits, as the tool carries out an in-depth analysis of each one of our brands. It provides insightful data that helps to shape our decisions. I love how easy it is to connect Lumar with Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and Majestic data for each of our brands. Lumar congregates all that data and makes my life a lot easier. Definitely valuable in helping us to identify the highest priority issues in a data set.”

    lumar customer review testimonial for technical seo platform

    “Lumar Protect is a very reliable tool. We used Protect, for example, to check if anything is redirecting where it shouldn’t be. Before, I had to check everything manually but, with Lumar, you can set up tests beforehand and really see what happens. It’s a great relief to know there is something that will notify me if anything has changed.”
