A combination of these analytical data points is used not only enhance the user experience but it goes a long way in boosting the search engine optimisation of a particular website. However, the question must be asked – since the same data is available to all sorts of people nowadays, how exactly do you gain an edge over your competition?

It really depends on how creatively you can interpret the data that is presented to you. This is why the concept of ideation with relation to SEO of a website is slowly becoming popular. Here we are not referring to creativity in terms of site design or logo design for any such graphical endeavors. We’re referring merely to the art and science of creatively generating and applying ideas whilst working with analysed data to understand how you can enhance the overall user experience on the website.

The ideation process will help broaden the scope of your website, unlocking ideas and surfacing solutions that were simply invisible when the focus was too narrow.

When studying analytical data with this concept in mind, many strategist employ a concept that is referred to as possible futures. The concept merely calls for a streamlined process where you study the current trends as well as things that are desired but not implemented and extrapolate any future trends.

The future projects are extrapolated with pro and cons of each is observed - with a list of new benefits and ideas emerging as a result. While the process itself might be creative, its root lies and extensive data analysis.

The whole exercise is not just highly factual but can often lead to highly innovative strategies taking shape.

In the end the one whose ideas are the paths your business should follow to succeed online.
