The process of tracking how visitors interact with your website.

Web Marketing Analytics
A lot of the power of WordStream's Web analytics tools lies in the things that they ignore.
A search marketing focused solution, WordStream won't offer you complicated "data pukes" and leave you to interpret the information for yourself.

By integrating directly with your AdWords account, WordStream software provides you with invaluable insights about how best to optimize your campaign so that you can attract more search traffic and achieve higher Quality Scores .
This will not only ensure that your keyword database  grows on a continuous basis, with new, highly relevant keywords added to your research every day. It also provides you with invaluable data on which keywords are driving the most traffic  and conversions. The difference is, this analytic data is fully actionable in WordStream. You can actually take action on the data the moment you see it, something you can't do in an analytics application alone.
WordStream Web analytics enable you to:
- Be More Efficient - In being able to visualize which words and word groupings are driving traffic and sales, you can better prioritize workflow , dedicating your time and efforts to the areas of your search engine marketing  and search engine optimization  campaigns.
- Improve Your Results - Being able to view and respond to this critical information is essential to the construction of successful search marketing campaigns.
But, in order to truly capitalize on even the most intelligently streamlined set of important metrics with web analytics, you need to have a means of efficiently acting on the data being presented to you.
You Need More Than a Web Analytics Tool
It's not enough to be fed static numbers that you can't pivot and implement into your marketing efforts.
WordStream immediately introduces each and every Web metric it collects into your account dashboard. From there, you can take your researched keywords and start manipulating them.

From within your WordStream account you can put your data to work in the following ways:
- QueryStream - With QueryStream you can instantly act on the search queries that drive visitors to your site -- adding them to existing ad groups, setting them as negatives and more.
- Kill Low-Return Keywords - Pause or delete keywords that aren't delivering results. WordStream helps you pinpoint those keywords, saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars per year.
