Turn more visitors into leads with our help

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

To gauge the impact of our engineering SEO and Google Ads campaigns, we track data on an array of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and metrics. This comprehensive approach ensures precision in tracking, insight into user behavior, and actionable intelligence to optimize our strategy.

Leads

In the realm of online marketing, the clarity and accuracy of tracking is key. We prioritize the attribution of leads to ensure that we can directly link our SEO efforts to tangible results. By understanding where leads originate from, we can refine our strategies and continuously improve our approach for maximum impact.

Calls (CallRail or CallTrackingMetrics)

Phone number tracking is a pivotal part of our lead attribution process. Utilizing Call Tracking Metrics or similar call tracking software with Dynamic Number Insertion (DNI), we can display distinct call tracking numbers based on the user’s source. This granularity allows us to discern whether users are connecting via a Google organic search, a Google Ad, or other channels, ensuring that every call is attributed to its correct source.

Form Entries

Similarly, when visitors engage through contact forms, our use of UTM parameters in link creation offers detailed insights. By monitoring data from organic and social channels, we can directly attribute form submissions to specific SEO strategies and campaigns. This data not only measures success but guides future optimizations.

Organic Search & Local SEO tracking

Organic search results and local SEO are both crucial elements of an integrated digital marketing strategy, albeit with unique attributes.

Keyword Rankings

Organic search result keyword rankings refer to where your website appears in search engines for specific terms. This is a reflection of your site’s relevance and authority on particular topics or services. By monitoring organic rankings for the homepage and main service pages, we concentrate on specific keywords per page. Using software, we can track daily trends to identify growth patterns. Additionally, SEMRush serves as a valuable asset to spot broader opportunities, gauge the overall health of our keyword strategy, and study competitors.

GeoGrids for Local SEO

On the other hand, GeoGrids cater to the contextual nuances of local searches. Since Google tailors its results based on the exact location of a searcher, especially when looking for local services, GeoGrids provide a visual map-based representation of how keywords rank in different geographic locations. This approach gives us a more comprehensive view of location-specific keyword performance and allows for precise local optimization strategies.

Google Search Console Insights

The Google Search Console (GSC) serves as an invaluable tool in our toolkit, offering direct insights from Google about how a website is performing in the search results. Within this platform, we concentrate on multiple facets to understand and optimize our online presence.

Impressions and Clicks

One of the primary metrics we closely monitor in GSC is the number of impressions and clicks a website receives for various search terms. Impressions represent the number of times a site appeared in search results, while clicks denote the number of times a user actively clicked on the result to visit the website. By examining the ratio of clicks to impressions (clickthrough rate or CTR), we can gauge the effectiveness of the site’s meta titles and descriptions and optimize them for higher engagement. Pages Performance GSC offers a breakdown of how individual pages on a website are performing in search. This includes data on the most visited pages, the search terms driving traffic to them, and their respective CTRs. By understanding which pages are the most popular and which ones may be underperforming, we can tailor our SEO strategies to boost visibility and engagement.

Coverage and Indexing

GSC offers a breakdown of how individual pages on a website are performing in search. This includes data on the most visited pages, the search terms driving traffic to them, and their respective CTRs. By understanding which pages are the most popular and which ones may be underperforming, we can tailor our SEO strategies to boost visibility and engagement.

Coverage and Indexing

Another critical aspect of GSC is its reporting on the indexability of a website. It alerts us to any pages that Google had trouble crawling or indexing, as well as any potential errors or issues. Addressing these promptly ensures that Google can easily access and rank all the content we want to be visible. Mobile Usability With the increasing emphasis on mobile-first indexing, GSC’s mobile usability reports are pivotal. They highlight any potential issues users might face when accessing the site on mobile devices, ensuring that our website offers a seamless experience across all device types

Engagement

 Engagement serves as a critical measure of how compelling and relevant your content is to the user. It is an essential component for SEO, reflecting whether the visitors are satisfied with the content and if they have found the answers to their problems. High levels of engagement signal to Google that the content is valuable, boosting SEO rankings.

Bounce Rate

A high bounce rate might indicate that visitors are not finding what they’re looking for and leaving quickly. We’ll monitor this rate closely to understand user behavior and optimize content accordingly. Pages Visited Analyzing the number of pages a user visits provides insights into the depth of engagement. More page visits signify strong content relevance and user interest, which is favorable for SEO.

Additional Engagement Metrics

Factors like the time spent on a page, click-through rate, and interactions with embedded media also contribute to understanding user engagement. We’ll utilize Google Analytics and other tools to track these metrics and constantly refine our content strategy.

Self-serve Analytics Dashboard

The integration of tools like Google Search Console, Google Analytics, Google Business, and SEMRush into an accessible analytics dashboard ensures transparency and real-time insights. Your team can access vital metrics at any time, fostering a collaborative and data-driven decision-making process. These added dimensions of engagement and conversions provide a holistic view of our strategy’s effectiveness. By aligning our efforts to foster deeper engagement and drive clear, decisive actions, we will create a more potent and responsive SEO campaign.
