Digital Reporting Reference Key

Traffic Analytics

Lead Delivery Method Tracking is the way visitors interacted with your site. A lead must have submitted a form, clicked-to-call, or completed another goal to make this list. A goal completion is confirmed traffic engagement and can be customized to your business’s needs.

Click To Call is the number of times a user on your website has actually clicked on your phone number or a “call now” call to action button. This communicates confirmed user engagement.

Forms submitted are the number of times that someone has provided and submitted information through an on-site contact form of some type. This communicates confirmed user engagement.

Additional Goals by Requests can be the tracking of purchases, views of a key page, the play of a video, download of a resource, etc. that you have identified that you wish to measure. Nuclear Networking can set up specific custom goals upon request.

Top 5 Traffic Sources are key indicators of where the majority of your online traffic is coming from. The core types of traffic we monitor are:

  • Organic traffic is visitors who came to your site by searching for terms related to your product or service and they chose to click on an organic search result on a search engine. This is non-paid traffic / not pay-per-click.
  • Referral traffic is visitors who came to your site by clicking on a link to your site from a different site. This can occur when a user clicks on a backlink built by Nuclear Networking.
  • Direct traffic can be one of the following: User types in a URL, clicks on a bookmark, a link in an e-mail from Outlook or similar desktop software. Traffic will also read direct/none if a user clicks on a link in Skype, desktop messengers, any desktop software in general, a PDF, DocX, ODF, XLSX or a different type of document, a mobile app, a secured site, a URL-shortener or in a different scenario where certain JS is being used (rare). Direct is what Google categorizes sources that don’t have any data attached to it.
  • Social traffic is visitors who came to your site from a social network or platform like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and more.
  • Affiliate traffic is visitors who came to your site from another site that your site is associated with online.
  • Display traffic is visitors who clicked on your online display ad or an image snippet and came to your site.

Goal Completions are the number of engagements on your site as defined by what you wanted us to monitor such as form fills, clicks to call, downloads, etc. These are all customizable and can be changed at any time.

Hits are different from a session in that a hit refers to the number of total visitors to the site, no matter how many pages they visit.

Bounce Rate is single-page sessions divided into all sessions or the percentage of all sessions on your site in which users viewed only a single page and triggered only a single request to the analytics server.

Many visitors who leave a site after viewing a single page (called the entrance page) made their way to that page from a search engine. A quick exit might mean that the visitor found the information he or she was looking for and doesn’t have a need to view additional pages on the site.

More commonly, though, a high bounce rate can point to a problem, such as usability issues, confusing design, lack of enticement to explore further, or content that doesn’t match what the user is after. Optimizing your site pages so they better correlate with the search terms that are bringing users to your site can be one way to lower your bounce rate. You can also change any ads or keywords to more closely reflect the page’s content.
