Definition

Clicks are a metric that measures the number of times users click on a link or element, such as a search result, advertisement, or call-to-action button, leading to a web page. In the context of search engine optimization (SEO) and digital marketing, clicks often refer to the interactions users have with search engine results pages (SERPs) or online advertisements.

Tracking clicks provides insights into the effectiveness of various marketing campaigns, the performance of specific keywords or ads, and user engagement with website content. Click-through rate (CTR), calculated by dividing clicks by impressions, is a key performance indicator that measures the percentage of users who click on a link after seeing it. Increasing clicks can lead to higher website traffic, conversions, and overall campaign success.
