Organic searches data
- There is an increase in the number of clicks since you started reporting organic clicks. Are there more people visiting my Profile page? This does not reflect an increase in the number of visitors to your merchant page. It simply reflects our new ability to track and report the clicks coming from organic searches. We believe this will give you a better understanding of the value of the Yellow Pages Digital Network.
- Where can I see the number of organic clicks? Organic clicks will be reported as "Other" in the click details report.
- Why is this important to me as an advertiser? Many users start their search process for a local business on a search engine. Since YellowPages.ca ranks extremely well in the organic search results of the major search engines, you will now be able to see the traffic generated by these results and get a better sense of how we help you reach more customers.
- What are organic clicks? As opposed to paid results, organic search results are the webpage listings that most closely match the keywords entered by the user based on relevance. These results are not influenced by a paid marketing campaign (SEM). The clicks we will be reporting are the ones directing users to your Yellow Pages Profile page.
Search data from Google
- How does it impact your Yellow Pages Analytics report? This change will not impact how the products of your 360o Solution perform. However, you will see some changes in your Yellow Pages Analytics reports.
For website reports, you will eventually notice a greater drop in volumes for the top 10 traffic by keywords charts. All keyword traffic from Google will no longer be reported in these charts meaning they'll be a larger disparity between the metric totals and the top 10 traffic by keyword.
To some extent this will also affect the keyword charts reported under the Yellow Pages Digital Network report; under the Profile Page Activity report since you may receive a significant portion of visitors coming to your Profile Page directly from Google Organic searches.To some extent this will also affect the keyword charts reported under the Yellow Pages Digital Network report; under the Profile Page Activity report since you may receive a significant portion of visitors coming to your Profile Page directly from Google Organic searches.
