Goals. Business goals. You set them. You set efforts in motion to achieve them. But how do you know if you are making progress toward reaching them?
Sure, likes and star ratings are easy to count. But unless your goal is popularity, these measures fall short of giving you the information you need to succeed.
Web analytics paint a different picture. One with depth to its insight. One which informs every level of your digital marketing efforts. One critical to your online presence.
Check it out:

Plus, you learn where you can venture into new topics without sacrificing the focus of your site or audience interest. In other words, web analytics focus your efforts as you create relevant content. This helps create more content and pages, which means more for search engines to find.
Getting the attention of search engines can seem a fickle endeavor. After all, the art of developing web content seems subjective. In reality, predictable algorithms underlie what attracts the eye of Google and its cohorts.
Webmaster Tools and SEO reporting optimize your site to stand out to search engines through:
