Curious about our recently launched traffic value metric (Aug 2017)? Here's a quick explanation.
Organic traffic value
Organic traffic value is the equivalent monthly cost of traffic from all keywords that the target website/URL ranks for if paid via PPC instead of ranking organically.
We calculate it based on multiplying the monthly organic traffic of each keyword at the respective ranking position by the CPC value. Then, we add up the organic traffic cost of individual keywords that the target website/URL ranks for.
In essence, the number gives you a sense of how valuable a domain’s keyword profile is. Another way to think of it is how much money the target website/URL has saved in terms ranking for keywords organically, instead of buying paid traffic.
Paid traffic value
Paid traffic value shows the estimated monthly cost of paid search traffic from all the keywords that a target website/URL ranks for via PPC.
We calculate it based on multiplying the monthly paid traffic of a keyword by the CPC value. Then, we add up the paid traffic cost of individual paid keywords.
