Yahoo! Conversion Tips: Muster, Monitor and Maintain!

Posted by @ 8:20 pm

We have seen a lot of search engine marketing tips from Google lately; however Yahoo! has jumped on the band wagon also by providing us 3 tips to improve your paid search advertising conversion through the Yahoo! Search Marketing Blog.

Yahoo! suggests 3 main tips to improve your conversion: Optimize, Navigate & Track.

Optimizing Your Landing Page

Your landing page is the first web page a searcher will see after clicking your ad, so make it shine.

  • Use a “deep link” to a specific product on your site.
  • Offer multiple ways for your customers to contact you.
  • Make your online shopping cart safe and easy to use.
  • Maintain good server availability and remove any broken links from you site.


Make sure that your website is easy to navigate by putting yourself in the eyes of the visitor.

  • Create an obvious pathway to your products or services.
  • Maximum of two clicks for the searcher to find what they are looking for from landing page.
  • If you’re after a sale, move any non-commercial content “below the fold”.

Track Your Results

Tracking the performance of your online marketing will help you analyze your results and make adjustments, if needed.

  • Track conversion data with Yahoo! conversion-only analytics tool.
  • Know which keywords drive the most conversions and allocate the budget to these.
