Google might have cracked the code on qualified sales leads through search. Somehow, sites are seeing drops in traffic but not all of them are seeing commensurate drops in revenue, because Google is figuring out which keywords drive revenue for each site. So, the question is whether you know which keywords are driving your own revenue. How are you tracking the connection between marketing effort and spending and your actual sales? If you’re an e-Commerce company, it’s easy–just track the sales through to your shopping cart. But for most companies–the ones that sell offline–tracking sales back to the online tactic that led to it is still an elusive goal.
