Conductor has announced what it says is the biggest financing round ever in the SEO industry: a $20 million Series C investment led by Investor Growth Capital.
In a news release, Conductor says it’ll use the money to continue development of its Searchlight SEO platform and to scale the company’s operations internationally. Conductor launched its Searchlight product in June 2010, and the company says it’s used by the “top four big agency holding companies … as well as more than half of the top 20 Internet Retailers and more than 100 of the Fortune 500.”
Existing investors FirstMark Capital and Matrix Partners also participated in Conductor’s financing round.
Earlier this year, SEOmoz announced an $18 million funding round.
