Advertising Measurement: SEO, SEM, Display Media

Advertising measurement has evolved in recent years from just measuring last click to trying to understand the entire path to the purchase funnel. Attribution modeling and cross-device conversion behavior have been very important topics to advertising measurement and optimization. Picking the right model and most accurate way to align to your conversions takes some experienced professionals.

Experience with Search (SEM) Measurement
Measuring search is not just about keywords and search queries. There is more complexity with shopping ads, mobile ads, ad extensions and driving users to convert. Conversions can take place online or in your brick and mortar location. Each one of these should be a different approach to measurement and optimization. Your efforts should also not be excluded at the conversion level but be thinking customer lifetime value with remarketing and remarketing lists for search ads (RLSA).
