How to measure how well your businesses organic SEO is doing



Grab your favourite cuppa and let us explain how to measure how well your businesses organic SEO is doing. This is important, because, your digital marketing agency might be saying “we’ve got you on first page of Google” but have they got you there for important keywords, to help you generate more sales? Or have they got you there for “comfortable shoes, that will last a long period of time, in brown leather”- which well, lets face it no one is going to search for.

Understand metrics that sound fancy but are as simple as beans on toast, such as CTR, this just means click through rate. So you may have spent 1 million on designing your website, but if its not got a good CTR from the SERP’s, well this needs fixing, it could be something as simple as rewriting the meta title and description.




Sure, climbing the Google ladder feels as grand as having a sunny day at the beach- but it takes a huge amount of time, and you often need the help of an SEO business to help get your business to page 1 of Google.
Yet we think that a monthly SEO report, sent by your seo company, should include the following:


Bounce Rates-these should be kept as low as possible

Imagine someone entering a pub and having a look at the beer pumps, and walking straight back out the door. Well, that’s a bit like a bounce rate for your website, its when a shopper, lands on say the homepage, visits it for a few seconds then leaves, they are not interested in the products or services you sell– visitors who pop by and leave without a second glance. Aim for lower rates; and your seo company and web designers need to work together, to workout what might be causing a high bounce rate, and fix this. So our advice, make your site as enticing as a good Sunday roast.


Click-through rates (CTR)

A fancy term for “someone actually clicked on your link in the SERP’s.” More clicks = equals more customers, so the meta title and meta description have to be well written. Also, ask your seo agency to add Schema mark-up, so your business can appear as a featured snippet, so you can gain even higher CTR.
