SEO REPORTING
FOR SUCCESS
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
Do’s, Dont’s & Templates to
Communicate & Influence
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
I know, you
likely didn’t
become an SEO
for the love of
reporting…
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
In fact, it’s
among the
least favorite
activities for
SEOs
https://twitter.com/aleyda/status/1492098492298403840
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
https://seomba.substack.com/p/your-boss-cares-about-reporting-more
But decision-
makers do care
about reporting
as it’s how they
assess the SEO
process
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
The effectiveness
of reports can be
the difference
between getting
fired, more SEO
support or a raise
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
But many SEO
Reports are just
a compilation
of dashboards
automated via
tools showing
SEO metrics
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
41% of SEOs
asked said to
only use a
dashboard
with data for
reporting
https://twitter.com/aleyda/status/1459202085715591174
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
Data from dashboards will be included
in reports but they can’t replace them
https://chartio.com/blog/dashboards-vs-reports-how-theyre-the-same-how-theyre-different/
REPORT DASHBOARD
A visualization tool
that contains the
most important up-
to date metrics on a
topic/area, used for
performance
monitoring.
Document featuring
a collection of
cleaned/sorted data
(text, graphs, charts)
with explanations,
used for periodic
analysis of single or
many areas.
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
Using only automated dashboards with
no personalization can be harmful
Non-Meaningful Metrics to track
actual progress
ISSUES CONSEQUENCES
No Insights, analysis nor outcome
actions
Irrelevant KPIs recipients don’t
care about nor understand
Lack of prioritization
Unclear Data Presentation
Confusion about actual SEO goals
achievement
No Visibility of SEO activities
progress
Lack of vision about what’s
causing lack of goals achievement
Uncertainty regarding next steps
and needs to achieve goals
Distrust of SEO
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
Although
most SEOs add
business
metrics that
will help to
connect with
decision
makers…
https://twitter.com/aleyda/status/1459202085715591174
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
…and also
add
commentary
to them…
https://twitter.com/aleyda/status/1459202085715591174
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
… SEO dashboards (even personalized)
can’t achieve all SEO reporting goals
Only partially this one
COMMUNICATE
RESULTS
EXPLAIN THE
CAUSE OF
RESULTS
DRIVE ACTION
TO ACHIEVE
GOALS
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
Especially
taking into
consideration
that most SEOs
don’t always
present their
reports
https://twitter.com/aleyda/status/1459202085715591174
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
SEO reports need to communicate
process evolution towards goals…
3. HOW
2. WHY
1. WHAT
How are the
results going to be
kept or improved
to achieve goals?
Has been achieved
vs. what was
expected?
Are these the
results achieved
so far?
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti

Yes, there are
timing
restrictions
and you need
to do reporting
fast, but…

Reporting
is only a
monthly
effort!

Avoid using
proprietary
metrics which
are unreliable
and difficult to
connect with
your SEO goals
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
Don’t add to
reports all what you
monitor, only KPIs
connected to SEO
goals the audience
care about
CMO WILL CARE ABOUT THIS
THIS WILL ONLY ADD CONFUSION TO CMO
#SEOReporting by @aleyda from @orainti
Instead, reports should include KPIs
showing performance towards goals…

The site organic search traffic has had a strong +39% growth in Q4 2021 versus Q3, in a
steady trend to achieve goals of 30% YoY in 2022.
The site organic search traffic had a -8.3% decrease in 2021 vs 2020 due to drop in Q2 and
Q3 2021after being hit by Google Core Updates. However, content optimization efforts
started in May and thanks to them the site started to recover in Q4 and has now a steady
positive trend and is expected to fully in January 2022. If content optimization efforts
continue to be made for the positive performance to be kept through 2022, the 30% YoY

Despite an important increase from

December’s branded traffic share
results have fell short from the 30%
goal.


Why have we fell short?


The “Branded Content” initiative
meant drive the increase of branded

March 2021, faced UX & development
constraints, only launching 40% of

How to achieve the expected goal?


Given the release delays, it’s expected to reach the +30% branded
traffic share in January, a month later than what was initially planned,
however, this also means a delay in the expected +50% goals for next
year for which the “Commercial Branded Content” initiative had been
planned to release in March. It’s then recommended to launch them in
January instead, to catch up with expected results.

The site organic search traffic had a -8.3% decrease in 2021 vs 2020 due to drop in Q2 and Q3 2021after being hit by Google Core Updates. However, content optimization efforts started in May and thanks to them the site started to recover in Q4 and has now a steady positive trend and is expected to fully in January 2022. If content optimization efforts continue to be made for the positive performance to be kept through 2022, the 30% YoY traffic goal for 2022 should be achievable.

How to achieve the expected goal? Given the release delays, it’s expected to reach the +30% branded traffic share in January, a month later than what was initially planned, however, this also means a delay in the expected +50% goals for next year for which the “Commercial Branded Content” initiative had been planned to release in March. It’s then recommended to launch them in January instead, to catch up with expected results. RECOMMENDATIONS
