COVID-19 pandemic-related shutdowns have affected a host of industries and sectors in various ways.
Part of the fallout has been the change in the behavior of Web users, resulting in some recognizable online trends—in organic traffic and conversion rates, for example.
Not surprisingly, traffic has generally increased to sites in industries such as media, finance, and healthcare—and decreased for those in the travel, construction, and advertising verticals, among others.
Similarly, healthcare, pharma, and media industry conversion rates have increased, while those for transportation, manufacturing, and travel have decreased.
