This is a great question…I think it depends on the site and the destination goal. If your site is dedicated to an individual or group of people, then yes, you will want to set a goal with that goal in mind. If your site is designed for a general audience, then your goal would need to be a specific goal. If your site is a blog, then yes, you would want to set a goal for yourself to start writing and reading blogs.
I think you’ll find that the goal you set for yourself will have a greater effect on conversions than the goal of a specific audience. A site dedicated to a particular audience will likely convert better than a general site.
I think this is an important point as well. If you set a goal to start writing and reading blogs, you can expect to get visitors from people who are already blogging. Conversely, if you set a goal to start blogging, you can expect to get visitors from people who are not blogging. A site dedicated to a particular purpose will likely convert better than a general site.
If you’ve ever been on a trip back from work, you know that even the most pleasant trip is likely to have lots of people following you to see you. If you have a group of friends that you’re going to meet at the local beach, you’re going to have to have them join you.
The same is true for blogging. Some people will follow you back to see if youve done something while you were gone. Some people will follow you to see if youve done something while you were gone.
If you’re on a plane, or running around at night, you know you have a plane ticket and it is on to you. If you’re on a train or bus, you know you have a train ticket. If you’ve been flying a plane, you know you have a plane ticket. If you’re on the subway, you know you have a subway ticket.If you’re visiting a place, you know you have a subway ticket.
There is nothing inherently wrong with that. This is just a question of what we are getting.
Sure, there are legitimate reasons to want to record the destination of website URLs when they are converted to the target site. It is important to be aware of this since it can be an easy way to track down and recover lost data. It is also good to be aware of the possible problems (like double-sourcing your data) that can arise when this conversion process happens.
We’ve got a really good idea about the problem we have with this idea, and we’ll let you have a look at it…
I was initially trying to write a post on the topic, but as I read through the comments, I realized that the problem is even more simple and can easily be solved by simply allowing users to not be prompted to enter their destination URL when they click the “go to” button. The only requirement is that the destination URL must be a valid (i.e. www.your.target.website.
