    • Search
    • Last Click Attribution is Not Always Accurate Last Click Attribution refers to crediting the last click that a user made to a site conversion. In reality, conversion may have been caused by a number of touch points in the form of PR, social media, video, etc. Understanding how these assets affect your search volume and conversion rate is critical in determining which of your online marketing initiatives are most effective.
    • POLL
    • Brand Related Search The majority of corporate search traffic is brand specific. Until now, there was no easy solution to understand which digital assets drive brand related traffic from search. View-through enables marketers to identify which non-linked content (PR, social media, video, etc.) drives the most brand related search activity and conversions.
    • Brand Related Search
    • Non-Brand Related Search The same digital assets that drive brand related search may also help to generate non-brand related search. View-through technology identifies the segment of “generic” search traffic that was exposed to digital assets being tracked. Helps identify which marketing campaigns have the most influence in capturing non- brand related search. Can also be used to identify multiple search query behavior.
    • Bookmarks
    • Bookmarks “Bookmarks” act as a catch-all scenario in web analytics programs. This can include many different scenarios where there is no referrer, including:  E-mail  Re-direct  Actual Bookmarks  Directly Typed View-through data gives insight into the origin or influencers of this traffic.
    • Expert Analysis, Insight, andRecommendations Better Tools and Segmentation New Dimension of Data Combined  More Holistic View of Visitors and Visitor Behavior  New Insights and Implications  Optimization of Each Facet of the AIDA Model
