Some Important Metrics to Track Your SEO ROI

1. Keyword Rankings: One of the basic building blocks of SEO is the use of keywords while creating content, and therefore it is essential to track the keyword ranking. In order to measure the success of your content optimization, you should take into account the ranking of the keywords you use. In this way, you can track which keywords bring the most organic traffic to your website.

2. Search Rankings: The higher your website is on the search engine results pages, the more organic traffic you can attract. By following this metric, you can see how efficient your SEO performance is and make improvements.

3. Click-through Rate: Click Through Rate, which is determined by dividing the click rate of a link by the impression rate, is another metric that we can analyze to track SEO performance. Through this metric, you can see how well your web pages' titles are optimized. If you have a lot of impressions but a low click rate compared to this, it means that your website title or meta description is not interesting enough for potential visitors. Therefore, your click-through rate will be negatively affected.

4. Bounce Rate: The metric, which we call the Bounce rate, is the percentage of visitors who visit your website, visiting only one page and leaving your website. By following this metric, you can see the relevance of the keywords you selected while doing SEO to the search queries. If your content on your website is not relevant to the search query, your bounce rate will be high. If your bounce rate is high, you may consider planning a different content.

5. Organic Search Traffic: Another metric that you can best measure the efficiency of your SEO performance is organic search traffic. A high organic search traffic rate indicates that your SEO is working well.

Of course, it is impossible to track these KPIs manually. It is a tool that can provide you with any data you need, completely automatically, within seconds. And that tool is heybooster.
