Key Content Marketing Metrics
Key Content Marketing Metrics: Many businesses have yet to figure out how to accurately quantify the success of content marketing, despite its widespread use as a strategy for expanding brands’ reach and informing target audiences.
It is imperative that marketing teams have access to data and the capacity to measure against predetermined KPIs in order to rationalize the investment needed to produce high-quality content that truly moves the needle.
Metrics for Content Promotion
The Nature and Origin of Internet Traffic
- Traffic to one’s website is often used as a key reporting statistic by content marketers. However, there is more than one approach to analyzing traffic data.
- If you are just getting started with analytics for your content, the Channel report is a great way to see where your blog readers are coming from.
- Maybe your blog receives the majority of its readers from a regular email newsletter. In any event, you need to know how your readers are actually getting to your posts.
- Analytics’ Source/Medium report allows for a more in-depth investigation of traffic numbers. Maybe your team has been working on search engine optimization; you can see how effective this has been by comparing organic traffic on a monthly or annual basis.
- If you’ve been putting more effort into getting your content shared on social media, analyze your referral traffic and determine which sources are most effective in bringing people to your site.
The Actions of the User
- Simply measuring user behavior does not disclose anything.
- However, when used in conjunction with other measures (such as traffic performance), they can point marketers in the right direction when assessing reader engagement and content success.
- Your content’s success can’t be gauged just by these indicators, but they may (and should) be used to supplement other measures.
- If a blog post naturally draws a lot of readers and they spend a long time on it, that’s a good indicator that its content is relevant to searchers’ needs.
Reach, CTR, and Impressions
- Other than traffic and user behavior, Google Search Console is also useful for monitoring impressions and CTR.
- By doing so, you may see if the keywords for which your content ranks in organic search result in pageviews and clickthrough.
- Despite its limitations, it can show you if your material is doing well (many views and click-through rates) or if it needs to be changing (low impressions, low CTR, or a combination of the two).
Backlinks and Content Sharing
- Every piece of information should be creating with one thing in mind: the reader’s best interests.
- Although there is no single statistic that can prove it. The amount of social shares and inbound links to your content can provide insight into. How willing your audience is to spread the word about your work.
- Take, for example. A blog post that has been sharing over a hundred times on social media or an infographic that has been picking up by several top trade magazines.
- Particularly if you’re trying to raise brand consciousness. Content analytics like these will help you succeed.
Positions for Specific Keywords
- Do a regular assessment of the rankings for your most important keywords to ensure you are on the right road. Naturally, you’ll need to conduct keyword research to determine which search terms should be your top priorities.
- There are other keyword tracking tools out there, but we use SEM-Rush for our client programmers.
- Ranking increases are a terrific method to illustrate the success of your content marketing effort. Especially if you’re going after competitive, high-value keywords.
