We have a client whose site targets only a specific area of a country.

Now here is the matter the traffic which is coming from social media channels (free and paid), directly, ad campaigns such as PPC or through community boards are converting well.

But the traffic from search engines are not converting at all which are from the exact same geographic area.

How will you guys resolve this? The keywords are same for all the cases.

Are you tracking assisted conversions?

You may find that the organic search traffic is contributing more than you think it is.

Yeah actually we are doing it.

And after seeing the metrics we can say that organic traffic is not getting our client any conversions.

Are your ad landing pages the same pages that are ranking for those keywords?

If they are going to the same page, whether it is through AdWords or organic search results, your conversions should be fairly similar.

My guess is the landing page is one thing and the pages that are actually ranking are something different.

My second guess would be there is something not right with the tracking.

No tracking is good that I can assure you.

And second, the ranked pages and the ad's landing pages are the same in most of the cases.

And how much traffic per day is the site getting from ads and how much per day from organic search?

These are local search terms and you are getting 15,000 visitors per day from ads and 6,000 from organic search?

That's a lot of traffic.

Are your PPC ads AdWords or something else?

Need to check the landing page either it has been optimised properly and as well as the tracking data to retrieve the sources.

Although we had already been checked all the metrics.

But it was your words that make me and my team to look at it closely. So thanks.

And I am going to start a thread on ip addresses now.:dans2:
