Why Content Filter?
There are many advantages of using Content Filter, here are some of them:
- More Engaging & Consumable Content: Content filter makes your content engaging and more consumable. When visitors have the options to filter out the content, it helps them to find what exactly they are looking for. And it saves their valuable time.
- Higher Dwell Time: Dwell Time is a ranking factor. If a search engine visitor quickly leaves your page and go back to SERPs, it gives you lower dwell time. A content filter can make the visitor stick to your page and thus increase the dwell time as well as the rankings.
- More Conversions: When you make the visitors stay longer on your page, it increases the conversion rates.
