The Search for Hidden Keywords

Not every single person who traverses the internet and ends up at your site uses the exact same pattern. Dozens of different search queries are used to get to a destination, and it’s your job to do research and find out what those pathways are. But more importantly is setting up a list of objectives that will help you to see which methods are more effective.
Analyzing the visits and conversions that take place on your site is critical in determining which keywords are more effective than others. Tracking the success of these visits can be measured by the objectives that you have predetermined to reflect off of visiting data. There is no certain rule concerning the style, depth, or simplicity of your objectives – in fact, the simpler the better. Here are some pertinent illustrations of objectives to set for your plan:
Time spent – Browsers who stay on your site for more than three minutes without bouncing can be considered successful conversions as far as the content is concerned. They took the time to read your website and most likely will be back.
Pages browsed – If the browser has interacted with more than two pages, than you can tell that the content has piqued his interest more than the casual visitor.
Product page, Services page, Contact page – The main purpose of your site is to make a conversion. If browsers are continually accessing pages related to the product and methods of contacting your business, you can consider those visitors a success.
