Have you ever wondered how Google determines your site’s ranking?
It deploys an automated bot to “crawl” across your site and look for certain attributes. Crawlers look for keywords, links, site design, and image optimization.
Analytics is how you measure the success of your blog.
Analytics tools take the data from your website, such as views, and transforms it into an easy-to-understand pictorial representation like a graph.
4. Return On Investment (ROI)
In simple terms, your ROI is how much of a benefit (often profit) you see from an aspect of your marketing campaign.
For instance, if you’re spending $50 on your marketing and see $500 in profit, you’d have a pretty considerable ROI.
It’s worth noting that calculating your ROI can actually be challenging, so do your research before reporting your findings.
5. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

How can you optimize your content for SEO? Through your CMS, of course!
Okay, we’ll drop the marketing jargon. Your CMS is the system you use to write, edit, and publish your blog.
WordPress, for instance, is a CMS. It allows you to create and distribute your content with varying degrees of customization.
While other marketing jargon is unnecessarily complex, usability is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Your blog’s usability is how easy or difficult it is for the average user to navigate.

So, as it relates to SEO, the higher on the SERP your page ranks, the better.
9. Rich Snippets
Rich snippets are a type of data markup used to generate a brief preview of a website or piece of content on a SERP.
If you’ve included rich snippets in your blog, it could be a quick description of your website, for instance.
