The following are what site owners can expect as a result of secured search.
1. Organic Keyword Traffic Performance: Corresponding incoming keyword traffic will no longer be easily accessed with conversion goals in Google analytics.
2. Non-branded Organic Traffic KPI’s: Monitoring growth in non-branded search traffic will be difficult because branded and non-branded keywords will now be replaced with (not provided).
3. New Content Ideation Methods: Incoming keyword search terms in Google Analytics will no longer be able to develop the informational web content recommended by Google. Due to this, more creative content ideation and marketing methods will need to be implemented with the help of content and search marketing specialists.
