Google’s Matt Cutts, in discussing Google’s Internet Marketing Measuring for Business regarding guest posting, states that Google is geared towards recognizing utility. If Google doesn’t recognize utility, then Google will become weaker and someone else will take their place. Only a few people remember Alta Vista. They didn’t provide much in the way of utility….


He then goes on to discuss the importance of measurement.


Measuring What Is Important


Matt Cutts says that a publishing strategy based on Google ranking is not a strategy but a tactic and it’s not a good tactic. He goes on to say that if interesting material is provided, people will read it and they might return if more interesting information is provided. This is creating engagement. That combined activity plays into ranking. Success depends on achieving the underlying business goal.


Some common things that are measured are Page views, Subscriptions, Comments, Quality of comments, Syndication, Time on site, Videos watched, Unique visitors, Traffic sent to partner sites, and much more.


How Do We Know If We’re Interesting?


“There are a couple of different types of measurement marketers use. One is an emotional response, where the visitor becomes “positively interested”. This is measured by recall studies, association techniques, customers surveys and questionnaires. However, the type of response on-line marketers focus on, which is somewhat easier to measure, is behavioural interest. When people are really interested, they do something in response.”
