  • 11. All the Jargon • Algorithm – A mathematical formula used by search engines to determine which web sites in their database to present in search results, in which order. While search engine algorithms change regularly, primary on-page factors include keyword density and source code optimization. The primary off-page factor is link popularity. • Bounce Rate - This is the rate of visitors that enter your site, and leave within the first 5 seconds (as calculated by Google Analytics) without viewing another page. • Conversion - A site visitor completes a desired action. Generally a download, signup, purchase, etc. • Inbound Links - A text or graphical hyperlink from one site to another. Google and other search engines’ algorithms consider a site’s popularity based on the quality and quantity of inbound links from relevant third party sites to help determine search positioning. oxiem.com
  • 12. All the Jargon • Landing Page - The page that appears when a potential customer clicks on an advertisement or a search-engine result link. The page will usually display content that is a logical extension of the advertisement or link • Pay Per Click - System where an advertiser pays an agreed amount for each click someone makes on a link leading to their web site. Also known as CPC (Cost Per Click) or paid listings. • Rank - How well a particular web page or web site is listed in a search engine results. Generally, sites on the first page (or within the first 10 listings) generate significant visibility and traffic. Overall, saying a page is "listed" only means that it can be found within a search engine in response to a query, not that it necessarily ranks well for that query. “Rank” is also referred to as “position”. • Unique Visitor – Is a visitor that interacts with a site. They may interact more than once, but within analytics reporting, they are only counted one time. oxiem.com
