Knowing the terms and acronyms associated with SEO will help you understand how to get the most out of your website or blog…but it can be difficult keeping up with them all. Here are some of the most important SEO and marketing acronyms you should be aware of this year:

1. SERP: Search Engine Results Page. This is the page of results that appear when you perform a search query on any given search engine.

2. CTR: Click-Through Rate. A measure of how successful an ad or website link is in generating visits from users clicking on it, which can be calculated by dividing the number of clicks by the number of impressions.

3. PPC: Pay-Per-Click. A type of online advertising where advertisers pay a fee each time their ad is clicked by a user on a search engine or website.

4. CPC: Cost Per Click. This refers to the cost that an advertiser pays each time their advertisement is clicked by a user.

5. CPM: Cost Per Thousand Impressions. This is the cost that an advertiser pays each time their advertisement is seen 1,000 times.

6. ROI: Return on Investment. A measure of how successful a marketing campaign has been based on the amount of money it has generated compared to the amount of money spent on it.

7. CPA: Cost Per Acquisition or Action. This is the cost of acquiring a new customer or an action such as signing up for a newsletter.

8. KPI: Key Performance Indicator. A measure of the performance of a campaign or marketing activity.

10. TLS: Transport Layer Security. The technology used to secure online communications, such as on websites.

11. BR: Bounce Rate. This is the percentage of visitors who leave a website after viewing only one page. While it’s commonly seen as a negative, it could be that people leave your website after one page because they found the answer they needed, so analyze your website using multiple metrics to build a full picture.

12. ROAS: Return On Advertising Spend. A key performance indicator (KPI) used to measure the effectiveness of an online advertising campaign; it’s calculated by dividing total revenue generated by the cost of your ad spend.

13. A/B Testing: While this isn’t strictly an acronym, it means testing two different versions of a web page, email, or advertisement to determine which version generates the most conversions; it’s used to refine content and maximize website performance. The ‘A’ and ‘B’ simply refer to the different versions of the same thing.

14. CMS: Content Management System. A system used to create, manage, and publish content on a website. This can range from an open source software such as WordPress to a proprietary system such as Adobe Experience Manager.
