Website statistics: What customers don’t do can tell you what they do do

Posted on March 18, 2011

How do I know how many people are looking at my website?

Posted on November 29, 2010

google-analyticsBefore you even think about SEO for your website, you first need to know how many visitors your site is getting already, where they’re coming from and what keywords they’re searching on. Without knowing how many visitors your website is getting already how can you even put a value on any SEO services you might get, and how important increased traffic is to you now?

For example, you may be getting one enquiry per day from your website. You may be happy with that, but if your website is getting 500 visitors per day, then that one enquiry would represent a very poor conversion rate indeed. This would mean that your website needs looking at from a (more…)

How many visitors does my website need to be successful?

Posted on August 1, 2010

Most people consider SEO to be all about rankings. Where your website ranks in certain search engines, for certain keywords, is often considered the most important result from any search engine optimisation campaign.

This is of course utter nonsense. Where your website ranks for what keywords is only a small part of what SEO is all about.

So, armed with the knowledge that visitors are more important than rankings, how many visitors to your website do you need?

How to know when your keywords are wrong

Posted on July 31, 2010

When you start a new business, it’s important to first conduct market research into the potential business to see whether it is a viable enterprise. You need to look at the size of the market, the strength of the competition and whether you can make enough profit to warrant the time and effort. You wouldn’t just have an idea and begin the business without any research, as you could be wasting your time flogging a dead horse in what proves to be a very costly mistake.

So why do so many people do this with their SEO?

It’s an all too common sight in the field of search engine optimisation to see websites, often promoted by SEO agencies, being optimised for the wrong keywords. Businesses can spend a lot of money, often thousands or tens (more…)
