  • If the ratio is no less than 2-4%, then your content strategy is working to attract potential customers instead of simply driving people to your website, thanks to the viral content without any other perspectives.

Website Traffic Lead Ratio Challenges

The biggest challenge with the Website Traffic Lead Ratio is that it does give you the full picture of your website performance. This metric is extremely useful for keeping an eye on your website performance, but it is essential to monitor this metric alongside the Online Conversion Metric and Web Traffic Sources Metric to take immediate action if the Website Traffic Lead Ratio is lower than it should be.

  • What is important for the Website Traffic to Lead Ratio is to get a baseline, what is this ratio currently? And what can you do to improve it? Many times, focusing on improving the website’s conversion rate is an easy way to improve this ratio.

  • Landing Pages. While the purpose of many content pages on websites is to provide information, landing pages are designed for collecting contact information. Very effective landing pages combined with targeted traffic can give a conversion ratio of as high as 50-60% and, in some rare cases, even more than that.

    Different landing pages are attractive to different people or groups, and hence one should never rely on only one landing page. And it's often a good idea to send traffic to the landing page via a blog and then measure which landing page performs better., a leader in Inbound marketing software and methodology, recommends that a business should have as many as 40-50 landing pages with different offers.

  • If your traffic is steady or increasing, but your traffic-to-lead ratio is low or decreasing, that's a surefire sign that something is missing on-page.
