Oh, and by the way, do you know that there’s something called Scroll Tracking? Just like the name says, we will be able to track the website visitor’s scroll depth inside your blog posts, pages, CPTs and almost everywhere!

Why Scroll Depth Tracking Is Important?
Most of us are blogging for making money online. And as you know we need to rank our contents higher on search engines for generating traffic, revenue, and conversions. What we need for ranking higher on search engines? Probably quality content.
Content is King!
Engaging, simple content will always help you in search engine ranking. For example, let’s take a look at our guide on starting a WordPress blog. There, we have added a step-by-step procedure for starting your WordPress blog. In plain English, in an engaging format. And that guide got 2000+ words.
So if a user doesn’t like the content, probably he will leave the website and never return. As a publisher or business owner, this will affect your entire business. By enabling the scroll tracking feature, you can see exactly where you need to improve (if any). The plugin will give you accurate scroll depth inside your posts.
And that’s how you can find the content which is not engaging or which needs improvement. Works great in 2019.
