    • Conversion: Conversions are accountable actions that occur on websites, social media platforms and other digital media, by users. These actions can include filling out a newsletter field, visiting a particular webpage, or purchasing a product. Marketers choose the goals which are important to their business and insert a tracking code into the website or advertisement to measure them. The tracking codes links to programs like Google Analytics to analyze the effectiveness of a marketing strategy.

  5. Seems like the following are omitted from the list:
    Sentiment analysis (See Wikipedia entry)
    The application of natural language processing, computational linguistics, and text analytics to identify and extract subjective information in source materials. Sentiment analysis aims to determine the attitude of a speaker or a writer with respect to some topic or the overall contextual polarity of a document. The attitude may be his or her judgment or evaluation (see appraisal theory), affective state (that is to say, the emotional state of the author when writing), or the intended emotional communication (that is to say, the emotional effect the author wishes to have on the reader).
    I also believe that Sentiment Anaylysis may be discerned from individual communications or collective communications on the same general subject and may be dynamic and subject to trending over time depending on the subject matter of the communication and both internal (author) and external (reader) perspectives and influences.

  6. Also how about adding Trending:
    Trending signifies a topic or event which is currently popular and much discussed online.
