Each quarter, we examine total coverage as it relates to feature stories, bylines, mentions, and syndicated coverage.
Share of Voice
Share of voice is a popular indicator in the public relations industry. It is defined as the proportion of coverage and dialogues about your brand in the media (news, blogs, and Twitter) compared to your competitors.
We track the number of mentions across the quarters to gauge awareness and buzz. Our mentions have increased throughout the quarter, owing to the partnerships we've formed with reporters, proprietary data reports we've produced, and more joint engagements with other tech organizations.
Measuring message pull-through gives us a sense of the coverage's quality.
Google Analytics is used to track organic, direct, and referral traffic to our website. This tells us whether our public relations and social media activities are directing people to our website.
Branded Search Volume
Another important metric of brand awareness is branded search volume. This measure indicates how often people are searching for your brand by name.
Every month, we track total and organic blog traffic and investigate the blog content, promotions, and social referrals that produced the most traffic.
We look at the most popular blog material and the sources that drive those conversions, whether it's linked within blog posts or CTAs at the end. This gives us information about the most popular kind of content and the best approach to promote this content.
Looking at the number of social shares and the social media sites where the blog posts are being shared allows us to decide the best approach to promote posts and gain additional insight into the most popular post subjects.
Backlinks are an important component of brand recognition since they demonstrate that other websites are mentioning you and your products or services Strong backlinks not only bring in traffic from other websites, but they also play an important role in search engine rankings.
