## Return on SEO Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Return on SEO.

## How to Calculate Return on SEO?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Return on SEO.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the total increase in traffic (visitors).
- The total increase in traffic (visitors) is calculated to be : 600.

- Next, determine the value of each visitor ($/visitor).
- The value of each visitor ($/visitor) is measured to be: 3.

- Next, determine the cost spent on SEO ($).
- The cost spent on SEO ($) is found to be: 1000.

- Finally, calculate the Return on SEO using the formula above:

ROSEO = (T * V – C) / C * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

ROSEO = ( 600* 3 – 1000) / 1000 * 100 = 80 (%)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total increase in traffic (visitors) = 700

value of each visitor ($/visitor) = 4

cost spent on SEO ($) = 1500
