Search Funnel Reports ‘Can Boost Conversion Rates’

13th Oct 2010 News, Industry News Less than a minute to read

Companies can employ Google Search Funnel reports to help improve their online conversion rates.

Search Funnel Reports 'Can Boost Conversion Rates' According to Search Engine Watch columnist Joseph Kerschbaum, new users of the service should concentrate first on the easiest to understand areas – Path Length and Time Lag reports.

The former measures the average number of clicks it takes before a customer makes a purchase, while the latter looks at the amount of time taken to do so.

“Review the data to determine if conversions are taking longer than you expected,” Mr Kerschbaum advised users of pay per click management services.

“If they are, brainstorm on why users aren’t inspired by your landing page to action upon the first click.”

He added that doing this should put companies on the right path to improving their conversion rates.

Earlier this month, Google announced it was updating Search Funnels so Conversion History Windows can now be extended up to 90 days, rather than the original 30.

    Why Bing is a Valuable Paid Media Platform

    For a long time, Bing, the UK’s second-largest search engine, has been underappreciated and, in some instances, even ignored.  Often regarded as the inferior search engine to market leader Google, Bing has historically struggled to appeal to many in the digital world. Most PPC analysts would give justified reasons for neglecting Bing for so long; these include the volume of traffic and the user experience just not matching up to Google. However, the validity of these assessments is now diminishing. Bing has grown and improved rapidly in the last couple of years; if you are not integrating it into your comprehensive digital marketing plan, you run the risk of missing out on a large portion of your chosen market and significant revenue.
