Search Traffic & Engagement

The Search Traffic & Engagement graph shows traffic generated to the website by organic and paid search and valuable engagement metrics related to those visits.

There are four tabs along the top of the table. Use the tabs to view:

  • Note: Toggle Month to Date to gain valuable insights. Understand trends to date for traffic and engagement metrics per channel to adjust and optimize your acquisition strategies.

In addition, the three filters can be used to view:

  • Organic and Paid: View a breakdown of the organic and paid traffic.

  • Branded and Non-Branded: Understand a company’s overall marketing strategy.

    If the focus is on branded keywords, this would indicate a company is strengthening its brand with its existing customer base. If a company is trying to broaden its audience, it will focus on non-branded keywords.

  • All Search Types: See how certain search traffic types are performing over time. This includes regular search, news, image, video, shopping, and maps.

    This will allow you to see where your competitors are focusing their efforts and how effectively these channels are performing.

Note: When selecting a specific filter, you cannot use other filters.

FAQs

What does Syndicated traffic mean?

In Traffic by Search Engine, you may see the result Syndicated. Search Syndication stands for 3rd party domains held by companies that have a search revenue share contract with search engine providers (e.g., Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, Baidu, etc.).

These 3rd party companies distribute different software-like extensions, toolbars, desktop apps, etc., and change the user's search pages to their own search domain (i.e., changing the user's default search, new tab, or the home page on the user's browser).
