Published: October 10, 2018


Moz, a SEO software provider, announced plans to acquire STAT Search Analytics, a rank tracking and search engine results page (SERP) analytics company. The announcement was made in a joint video blog post featuring Moz CEO Sarah Bird and STAT CEO Rob Bucci. The financial terms of the acquisition were undisclosed.

With this acquisition, Moz aims to expand its search results data and analytics capabilities, as well as increase the flexibility of its enterprise solution offerings.

“By acquiring STAT, we’re living up to our promise of providing our customers with the tools they need to be the best at marketing, specifically SEO,” said Bird in a statement to Demand Gen Report. “Combining STAT and Moz’s offering solidifies Moz as the most robust organic search solution in an industry that is becoming increasingly competitive and fast-paced. This acquisition will help marketers gain the data and insights they need to connect organizations with the people who are searching for their offerings, rather than make assumptions.”
