Tools and methods for tracking SEO performance

Monitoring your SEO performance is crucial for understanding the effectiveness of your strategies and making data-driven decisions. There are a few key tools you can leverage for monitoring your performance.

Google Analytics (or similar)

Google Analytics provides comprehensive data on your website’s traffic, user behavior, and conversions. You can track key metrics such as page views, bounce rate, average session duration, and goal completions.

💡 Tip: You can check out this step-by-step tutorial by Semrush on how to set up a Google Analytics account for your web property.

Google Search Console

Google Search Console helps you monitor your site’s presence in Google search results. It provides data on search queries, click-through rates, and indexing status.

💡 Tip: You can check out this step-by-step tutorial by Semrush on how to set up Google Search Console for your web property.

Additional SEO Tools

There are several other SEO tools available that provide deep insights into keyword rankings, backlinks, and site audits. Popular tools include Ahrefs, Semrush, and Moz.

Using these tools you can:

  • Track your keyword rankings and monitor changes over time.
  • Analyze your backlink profile to identify opportunities and risks.
  • Perform site audits to find and fix technical SEO issues.

If you aren’t already using these tools for your web properties, pick one to start gathering data. Google Analytics is a quick, easy, and powerful one to get started with. In the next section, we’ll start analyzing data from these services with ChatGPT.

Using ChatGPT to analyze SEO reports and drive actionable insights

Once you have some performance data on your website, ChatGPT can assist in analyzing it and generating actionable insights.

To start, we can use ChatGPT to quickly summarize Google Analytics reports, highlighting key metrics and trends. For this first analysis, we’re going to download a User Acquisition report from Google Analytics and provide it to ChatGPT for analysis.

Sample prompt:

Summarize the key findings from this Google Analytics report. [attach report data]
💡 Tip: Google Analytics formats its CSV exports with many rows of header data that ChatGPT will remove before it can start analyzing the data. You can remove this header data before uploading to ChatGPT to expedite the process, but this is optional, as ChatGPT can typically do this automatically.

You can also use ChatGPT to identify trends in your data, such as changes in keyword rankings, traffic patterns, and user behavior. For this, we’re going to use the Google Analytics Search Console Queries report, which is full of keyword searches from previous traffic to our website.

Sample prompt:

Based on the attached report, analyze the keyword ranking data for the past six months and identify any significant trends or patterns. [attach report data]

Next, we’ll hop over to Ahrefs, download a Site Explorer report for our website, and upload it to ChatGPT to provide recommendations for improving our SEO strategy based on the data.

Sample prompt:

Based on this SEO report, suggest actionable recommendations to improve organic traffic and rankings. [attach report data]

Strategies for continuous improvement using AI feedback

Continuous improvement is key to maintaining and enhancing your SEO performance. Make sure to conduct regular SEO audits to identify and address issues promptly. You can use ChatGPT to assist in evaluating your site’s performance and generating action plans.

For example, we can have ChatGPT generate a detailed action plan for continual SEO audits to improve the performance of our website.

Sample prompt:

Provide a detailed action plan for conducting an SEO audit for continual improvement.

You can also use ChatGPT to search for your competitors’ SEO strategies to identify opportunities for improvement.

Sample prompt:

Analyze the SEO strategies of the following competitors and suggest ways to improve our own strategy: [insert competitor URLs].
💡 Tip: ChatGPT can’t analyze a website’s strategy by crawling it, instead it will search the web for published reports and data about a company’s SEO strategy, which is where the above example is sourced from. With that, this prompt won’t work for every website.

Finally, you can incorporate user feedback into your SEO strategy. You can upload user comments, reviews, and feedback to ChatGPT to identify areas for improvement.

Sample prompt:

Analyze the attached user feedback from our website and social media channels and provide recommendations for improving our content and SEO strategy.

That’s it for our tutorial series on SEO! Well done for making it to the end. You should now have a comprehensive understanding of how to develop and execute a successful SEO strategy using ChatGPT, starting with planning a strategy to finding relevant keywords to tracking and analyzing the performance of your SEO efforts.
