Split testing for SEO
To customize your online marketing campaigns you need to implement split testing techniques that give insights into which aspects and elements of your marketing campaigns are working well and which need improvement.
Through trial and error split testing you can work on optimizing call to action buttons, page layouts, images, content, keywords and titles; all of which are crucial marketing factors when it comes to driving more traffic to your site and increasing the CTR (click-through rate).
The more relevant the content is in relation to the keywords that visitors actively search for the higher you could rank on Google’s SERPs.
