SEO goal-setting and reporting

Reporting tells the story of what happened on your website to influence what you're going to do next. This all depends on your goals. Start by setting SMART goals and establishing KPIs for your website.

 

Once you've determined your goals, work backward.

  • How are you going to get there?
  • What strategies are you going to put in place to achieve your goals?

Share your primary SEO goal and the metrics you're going to track to ensure you're on course to meet it.

 

Here's an example: "We want to increase organic traffic to X page by X% over the next X months. The metrics we will track are organic traffic, SERP position, and search impressions."

 

Bonus: Share the strategies you're going to implement to reach that goal.

My goal is to increase website traffic by trying to follow the rank 1 featured snippet, and to create a style similar to that in my webpage, including keywords and structure, in order for my website to be displayed in the top of the SERP for users to see and click on.

@rsheldon Could someone help figure this out, please?

 

In Develop Your Strategy for Attracting Visitors course, a 6% increase in site traffic, month over month, was offered as a good target. I'd like to know how to apply this percentage increase to my own situation.

 

How does HubSpot calculate how many new visitors are needed monthly to reach a projected monthly target when starting from zero visitors?

 

Ex:

 

  • My target monthly visitor number is 3,000.
  • I'm starting from zero (new site).
  • How many monthly visitors do I need to reach 3,000/mo by Month 12?

 

(I don't want to divide 3,000 by 12 because it sets unrealistic expectations for Month 1. And it doesn't show the 6% increase in visitors across all 12 months.)

 

Maybe I made this way too complicated... 😅

To increase organic traffic to our website by 35% over the next 7 months. We will be using google analytics to track organic traffic to our page. Optimize our posts for featured snippets, we will do this by researching what and where our competitors rank on google search results and use google search console to check for ranks on specific keywords.
