Ok, we can’t actually promise that, but they said they’d be gentle. Youâ??ll see and hear how you and your colleagues’ sites rank in terms of their ability to garner search traffic and ultimately convert visitors to sales. Youâ??ll walk away with valuable lessons learned from what these sites do well and where they need improvementâ??in the areas of SEO, conversion and usability.

If you want to have your URL considered to be one of the sites reviewed in front of the audience, please email events@marketingprofs.com. Weâ??ll let you know in September if your site has been chosen.

Essential KPIs for Search Engine Optimization

eMetrics Summit — Washington, DC

October 21st, 2008

Seminar by

There are basic SEO metrics that will help with the “blocking and tackling” — things like keyword popularity, indexation, link popularity, PageRank scores, rankings, top-referring keywords, etc. There are also the red herrings, like keyword density and KEI scores, that are only distractions. But most importantly, there are a whole new class of SEO metrics that are largely undiscovered by folks in SEO and analytics alike, that are essential in order to fully capitalize on the “Long Tail” of SEO. These Key Performance Indicators include:

  • Brand-to-nonbrand Ratio — percentage of your natural search traffic that comes from brand keywords versus nonbrand keywords
  • Unique Pages — number of unique (non-duplicate) web pages crawled by search engine spiders
  • Page Yield — percentage of unique pages that yield search-delivered traffic in a given month
  • Keyword Yield — average number of keywords each page (minus the freeloaders) yields in a given month
  • Visitors per Keyword — ratio of search engine delivered visitors to search terms
  • Index-to-crawl Ratio — ratio of pages indexed to unique crawled pages
  • Engine Yield — the amount of traffic a search engine delivers for every page it crawls

Brian Klais, vice president of Search at Netconcepts, has been working in web marketing from the very start, will make sure you have the knowledge you need to do the job at hand.
