Expert Definitions of Website Optimization

During my new podcast, I ask marketing experts what their definition of optimization is. Here are some examples of the variations perspectives on how people are doing CRO, SEO and other types of website optimization. CRO stands for Conversion Rate Optimization, while SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization but there are also other type of Website Optimization.

What is your definition optimization and why is it beneficial?

Clay Collins – LeadPages I really take everything back to you, optimization. People talk about user experience. I think about optimization – and more specifically, conversion – in terms of user experience and just about anything in a business. I really do think it’s just a matter of making the things that you want to have happen, happen more often. That’s what optimization is to me.

Theresa Baiocco Conversion MaxA lot of people get confused about the word optimization. You need to ask what are you optimizing for? People think that you only need to optimize for the search engines. They are about getting the rankings up. Really companies should be optimizing for is revenue and to improve your profits. It doesn’t matter how much traffic you drive to your website if you can’t convert that traffic.

Michael Aagaard Conversion Optimization

But I think what I do is all about getting more people to do what you want them to do once they get to your website. It’s kind of the process of when you get traffic, how do you make them do what you want them to do?

In my experience, that’s all about arranging the content on your website in such a way that it’s easy for your potential customers to get the answers, the info or the experience they need in order to be able to do whatever it is you want them to do.

Dan Kaplan - Content Marketing ExpertAt periscopeUP, we define optimization as getting a website to achieve the clients’ goals. So really, there’s two parts to that. The first part is getting a website high up in the search engine, so that it gets more traffic or more relevant prospects to the site. But there’s a big, important second part to that, which is getting those visitors, those prospects to take your desired action to click, call or buy. So optimizing for people is just as important, if not more important, than optimizing for search engines.

Melanie Benson Strick - Small Business Optimizer
When we’re optimizing businesses the way I do it on the Small Business Optimizer Processes, we’re constantly looking at what are the things that have the biggest bang for the buck that are actually going to really catapult you forward towards whatever your goals are.

That’s the way I define it is it’s broader than just marketing, broader than just conversion, broader than just testing and doing split tests and tracking, which are all important, but there’s actually a whole other level of optimizing that has a huge impact on the overall profitability that an entrepreneur has.
