We understand what it takes to get a website’s ranking up and increase profits made through keyword usage, link building, and a host of other facets; however, have you ever wondered how we—and other companies like us—can track such arbitrary statistics such as traffic, click through rate, and target audiences? After all, none of this shows up anywhere on your website, or in your hosting service, so how is it even possible? Fortunately, there are many tools out there that allow us to track almost any statistic we wish from your website, giving us an insight into what we need to do to make your website successful; this is where website analytics comes into play.
Website analytics, like we mentioned, is using tools from the web—such as Google Analytics—to track statistics, usage rates, and more in order to improve your website from an SEO perspective. With website analytics, we can track the progress of your website in terms of many SEO facets, answering questions like “who is going to your website”, “where are they coming from”, and “what pages are they visiting”. We’re even able to tell how people are getting to your website and what keywords they are searching, so we can know where we need to focus our efforts. Overall, website analytics are a search engine optimizer’s best friend, as these tools are the only way we can see if what we are doing is actually working. With that in mind, it’s not completely inaccurate to say that SEO wouldn’t exist without these tools; website analytics is important, and we here at SiteLadder know how to utilize it better than anyone else.
In the grand scheme of things, we use analytics in two major ways; to track our marketing efforts, and to aid in website design for better conversions. The processes for this dichotomy are as follows:
Analytics also gives us an idea of what we need to focus on in the future, showing us your potential audience, online buzz, and potential visibility for a certain keyword. With these, we can determine whether we should chase certain keywords, pursue link building efforts, or switch strategies as we go. All of this and more is all well-represented by analytics tools, making them a marketer’s best friend.
Overall, analytics tools are extremely powerful in the world of SEO and website design; however, if you don’t know how to use them, they are as good as useless. And, because analytics tools can be extremely opaque—and quite confusing—at times, chances are you have no idea how to use them, while many others won’t know how to use them to their full extent. This is where we can help you out.
