Is Google really going to help you with your SEO?
The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) reports in Google Analytics provide information about Google Web Search queries that have returned URL results from your site.
With the SEO reports in Analytics, you can easily compare Google Web Search impressions and clicks for your site to other traffic source data from Analytics, such as paid AdWords impressions and clicks, and make up your mind on the best and most efficient channels for promoting your site.
By identifying the Google Web Search queries that drive traffic to your site, you can also learn which AdWords keywords make the most sense for your business objectives. In addition, you can identify how to optimize your website for both content and search quality – it’s very important to work on the long tail to improve conversions!
The SEO Queries Report
The Queries report shows the Google search queries that generated the most impressions for your website URLs. By using this report, you can identify search queries for which your site has a good average position, but poor click-through rates. These are queries for which your pages get attention, so improved content could lead to more visitors.
Landing Pages Report
The Landing Pages report shows how many times your top landing pages were shown in search results, again along with average position and CTR.
The Geographical report shows you impressions and click-through by country – great for international SEO where you target other countries.
Once you master these reports they will undoubtedly offer some good insight into not only how your site is performing, but some very good insight into how the Google SERPs actually function.
