ATTRIBUTIONBEYOND THE LAST CLICKAttribution analysis (or multi-channel analysis) is the process ofevaluating all of the media channels that lead a website visitor toconvert. The goal of attribution is to give a more accurate picture of howall of the different media channels (PPC, SEO, Social Media, etc.)impact a single conversion.Many analytics practices give too much credit to the last click madebefore a conversion. However, more often than not visitors use differentchannels in different stages of the conversion funnel. Attributionanalysis is necessary in order to have an accurate, big-pictureunderstanding of how visitors come to your site and convert.At Location3 Media, our attribution services include a customized trafficcollection process and deep analysis of the multi-channel conversionpaths developed by Ph.D. statisticians. As a result, our clients canbetter understand customers’ media consumption, attribute to differentchannels more accurately and achieve better multi-channel marketingreturn on investment.

YouTube is now the second largest searched site behind Google,and 23 million people are projected to search brands on Facebook in 2011.Advertisers often wonder whether search ads cannibalize their organic traffic.In other words, if search ads were paused, would clicks on organic resultsincrease, and make up for the loss in paid traffic?Google statisticians recently ran over 400 studies and determined that onaverage, the incremental ad clicks percentage across verticals is 89%.
