Optimizing websites to improve search engine rankings has always been a top priority followed closely by the use of website analytics-in large part, to measure the impact of their SEO. The use of website analytics has also increased significantly with the availability of sophisticated and often free tools such as Google Analytics.

Most notable among the capabilities being managed at increasingly high levels is the integration of systems so leads flow easily from their website to a CRM database. Integration is a difficult but critical capability to implement and manage. Yet the percentage of marketers who said their organization excels at this has nearly doubled since last year.

While industry sector is a factor, managing website capabilities at a "high level" appears to have little to do with the size of the organization managing it. Across the board, small, medium and large organizations have revealed strengths and weaknesses when it comes to website management.
