Why SEO Benchmarking? Because today it is not enough to simply write content, submit it to the search engines, and expect it to rank well. We need to use SEO Benchmarking in order to collect, analyze, and measure data metrics to see correlation values of what the search engines like most.
Imagine if you could take your target keyword and measure hundreds data points and similarities of the top 100 Google results for your keyword. And then on top of that, compare your webpage against them.
Benchmarking from an SEO standpoint means taking all of the key performance indicators of your website where it is currently, and recording various data points. Think of it as if you wanted to lose weight. You would measure your current weight and record the date and your current weight. This way in the future you would be able to know where you started so you can know exactly how much progress you’ve made over time.
SEO Benchmarking is very similar. However there are many more points to consider than just the date and weight. With a website you have to benchmark a lot of key data points and consider multiple SEO factors.

- Number of indexed pages
