Meaningful SEO Metrics: Going Beyond the Numbers


Moderator: Richard Zwicky, Independent Consultant,

Ray “Catfish” Comstock, Director of SEO, BusinessOnLine
Todd Friesen, Director of SEO, Performics
Rob Garner, Vice President Strategy, iCrossing

This has been a popular session for about the last 6 years and this year’s panel looks to be a great group. Rob Garner will speak first today, then Todd Friesen and lastly will be Ray “Catfish” Comstock.

Rob will start us off today by talking about measuring SEO success. He shows a slide that says, “Paid vs. SEO: the 90/20 search budget conundrum”. This basically says that 90% of the search channel budgets go to paid search while paid search only gives 20% returns. On the flip side, 10% of budgets go to SEO and those playing in the organic space will usually see about an 80% return on all revenue.
