Although the SEO techniques are popular, the way to measure their performances is to analyze SEO data. In addition, there are many performance measurement tools can be used such as KPI, balanced scorecard and management dashboards. This paper discusses the most effective marketing channel, Search Engine Optimization, and adopts one of the most important measurement tools, which could be implemented in SEO. However, it’s impossible to implement a performance measurement tool without annual report comes from company. Therefore, we want to create a questionnaire by the concept of balanced scorecard.

Thus, the company can check the aims and manager can report it to shareholders if they want to implement SEO.
