SEO compaign Analysis & Statistics?

Hi i wanna keep track of my SEO compaign activities.I wanna develop a form in excel where i ll put all the methods which i ll use to bring traffic to my web site.could someone guid me how to develop that form

admin answers:

Hi..I didn’t really know about that but Google Analytics is pretty good. It tells you so much about your traffic, where it comes from, where it goes,…it even showed me that putting an exclamation point in my title was decreasing traffic. Maybe you should try that.

Susan asks…

Why are most statistics regarding illegal immigrants always twisted or are just plain lies?

While on this forum, I’ve noticed sources, links and articles thrown out on here, and if you do some good research, you’ll notice that most posted are twisted or just plain lies, especially when it comes to the cost. Why do you think this?

Please! we know they are illegally here, we know you want them deported blah blah blah! if you don’t have a direct answer to the question, please move on.

Cost of Illegal Immigrants

Q: Do illegal immigrants cost $338.3 billion dollars a year? More than the Iraq war?

A: A chain e-mail that makes this claim is loaded with errors and misleading assertions. Published studies vary widely but put the cost to government at a small fraction of that total.

FULL ANSWER (Please read it if you have time)

This chain e-mail has been forwarded to us by readers many times over the past year. The most recent version adds a new angle, claiming that the amount of money taxpayers spend on illegal immigrants would be enough to “stimulate the economy.” But no matter the spin, the e-mail is rife with errors.

It also contains several red flags that should tip off readers that this is more bogus than believable. For one thing, the figures given don’t add up to a “whopping $338.3 billion dollars a year” spent on illegal immigrants in the U.S., as the e-mail claims.

The e-mail lists 14 claims about illegal immigrants, all of which were included in a longer list penned by anti-immigration activist Frosty Wooldridge and published on the conservative Web site NewswithViews.com on Jan. 22, 2007. Another NewswithViews columnist, Lynn Stuter, included Wooldridge’s list, with some updated links, in an article posted on April 15, 2008.

The source cited for at least nine of the items is either the conservative Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) or the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), both of which call for more restrictive immigration laws. CIS spokesman Bryan Griffith told us that he had never seen the e-mail but that he suspected something was out there because of occasional surges in traffic that forced him to rewrite Web pages. When told about the e-mail’s contents and conclusion of a $338.3 billion yearly cost, he responded that CIS “never said anything of the like and is not going to comment on a chain e-mail that is in no way scientific.”

The e-mail also continually blurs the important distinction between legal and illegal immigrants – a sign of sloppy and untrustworthy work.

It’s a ploy continuously used by the GOP. It serves to keep their supporters focused on bogus enemies and manufactured issues.Their goal is to keep Americans at each other’s throats while government takes care of what they consider important, redistributing wealth upward.

Sandra asks…

My website has been dropped by Yahoo, not sure why?

Hi technical team, I was wondering if you were able to offer any explanation or help with the following search engine problems we are experiencing with both Yahoo.com and Yahoo.com.au
We cannot locate our website if we type in our company name “southern cross metal recyclers” directly into the search engine and filter for Australia only, how could this happen to our website??? None of this makes any sense, how could we go from No 1 for scrap metal on Yahoo.com.au to not being in the first 1000 searches?? Can you help me please?
My name is Peter Thomas from Melbourne Australia and I am the owner and webmaster of http://www.southerncrossmetalrecyclers.com.au/. We have been active on the internet for 8 years and have gained respect in our community as a well presented and informative website with over 3625 pages and 6178 inward links. For some time we have been No 1 on Yahoo.com.au for the term “scrap metal” and No 11 for Yahoo.com for the same term in almost 22,000,000 search results. For some reason, our site has been dropped by Yahoo for all search terms that we have always ranked very well with. We have been building our site for some time now to be optimised for many search terms and up to the time that Yahoo dropped our ranking we have always been in the top 10 – 15 for hundreds of different search terms. We are currently and have been for some years ranked No 1 & 2 on Google.com.au and No 2 on Google.com for the terms “scrap metal”. We have been careful to not list or link to any banned sites, adult or gambling or other sites that may create any problems. Our site is the largest most comprehensive scrap metal recycling information compendium site of its type in Australia and perhaps Worldwide. It has been our aim to offer information, specifications, codes, prices, services, pictures including slide shows on all topics relating to scrap metal recycling and processing services. But now we cannot be found in the Yahoo directory when filtering for an Australia only search and using terms that would in all probability land any search directly on our site. We cannot be found in the first 1000 searches, in fact there are sites that rank higher than us that in a website sense are very basic and not well constructed. If as the webmaster of this site I have made some fundamental error then it would be helpful to understand the problem that I have created causing this to happen. Our site currently has over 1000 unique visitors daily viewing over 2500 pages. In my web statistics you can see how many referrals we get from each search engine and before this problem Yahoo was an excellent referral site, however due to this problem we are now not getting any traffic from your search engines. I am coming to you in a humble manner asking you in all honesty what we have done and how we can rectify a very obvious problem.
Kindest Regards

admin answers:

First, I know you pain when you lose a main keyword ranking for your site :::moment of silence:::

I want to note that I noticed you were comparing Google & Yahoo! Search results positioning numbers. Usually it is “very” hard to optimize for all 3 major search engines. This is due to the fact that they all use different algorithms and factors to generate their results.

My first guess would be that your site was removed for some reason. I have a lot more questions that need answers before I can make any suggestions.

Below in sources I provided my search engine optimization knowledge database, this link goes directly to my “Ask a Question” page that is sent directly to me. Reference this question URL in it, I’ll reply back with more questions regarding this issue and see if we can figure out the problem.

Ruth asks…

Per year, what % of average people need a lawyer for something in their lives & how many actually get one?

I’d like to find out, in general, how many people (or % per year) have what can be called a claim-worthy occurance in their lives that should be looked at by a lawyer. How does that compare to the numbers of people who actually do go out and get a laywer or do anything at all that would constitute “filing a claim” in any area of law like personal injury or workers’ comp or any other “important” area. I’m trying to exclude things like traffic tickets and such because most people can handle this on their own, without necessarily getting a lawyer involved. Are there a lot of people who, for one reason or another, don’t file a claim and don’t get a lawyer despite the fact that they may have a good/worthy claim to make? What could be the reasons for this? Also, if anyone has any web (or print) sources where such general law statistics information can be obtained, I’d really appreciate a link to some source where I can do more research.
Looking for statistics for the United States only!

admin answers:

Good luck.

My personal opinion is that 100% of people could use an atty and probably only 25% get one.

Maybe the prepaid legal people have some facts. It would make sense that they might use it as part of a sales pitch. Http://www.prepaidlegal.com

Maria asks…

Internet marketing question?

My first time using Y!Answers so here goes:

I would like to know where i could find data, statistics about how implementation of various features in a website affects its traffic and bounce rate.

More detailed: i would like to know what is , on average, the potential gain in traffic of an online shopping web site for certain implemented features: polls, quizzes, personal blogs.

Thank you.

admin answers:

I highly recommend Marketing Sherpa; http://www.marketingsherpa.com/

They have very useful statistics and metric data on what you’re looking for. My suggestions is that you simply start implementing the features you mentioned one by one and measure them with web analytics. Statistics are useful, and should be used as a general guideline. Online shopping is a very unique beast; every industry, every niche and even categories within niches, will always present quite different behaviors and performances, which are highly influenced by demographics, seasonality and other metrics.

At our agency, we are constantly optimizing our client’s websites beyond search. Conversion optimization is a key factor when it comes to shopping websites. Polls, quizzes, blogs, reviews, testimonials, etc, all play a role in it, but don’t always apply to every site.

Make this part of your interactive marketing efforts and you’ll be successful.

Jenny asks…

How to hire a web developer?

Our company is looking to hire a web developer to maintain two of our companies major retailing websites. One will host thousands of products being sold direct to customer, the other hosting information on products to be sold wholesale to retailers.

Both sites are already live, built by a 3rd party company. Now that our implementation contract is up we’d like to take future maintenance in house. I’ve been given the responsibility of hiring a talented web developer that can work in our office with the rest of the team. I have an MIS degree and have done some hobby web development but do not have the talent I think this position will require.

What I am asking for is help on what criteria to look for while hiring. What are key questions to ask to make sure we acquire great talent? What is the appropriate college degree? anything to help weed out those who are newbs or intermediate and find those who truly love and might be good at web development.

We need this person to be able to manage product updates, add features, troubleshoot issues, and manage both websites. We would also need the person to manage SEO, manage traffic statistics, and help us improve the website and business on the website.

If you have links to any good ‘interview tests’ or important questions to be asked, along with answers, I’d appreciate the help. We really want to make sure the gap we need is filled.

admin answers:

I would focus on the web development skillset first.

Degrees are not as important as actual skillset. Many of the most talented designers are self-taught through reverse engineering. Look for the ability to constantly learn new techniques as web development is ever changing. I would make sure you view everyone’s portfolio’s and ask questions regarding their ability to research and learn. Also make sure that they hand-code as opposed to using some sort of WSYWIG program. Make sure they legitimately “write code”.

For the SEO work, you could have your own In-House training program. There is a really good SEO Training Program that gives you an organized program for someone to follow – it includes training, checklists, and setting up and SEO Maintenance Plan. Anyone with basic html skills can use the program:

Joseph asks…

Website Traffic Site?

A few years ago I was sent a link from a friend to a website which measured the amount of traffic that passes through any particular website. Does anyone know of a site which can give such information. I am not talking about a counter to put on a web page! This is an actual site where once you go there, you can enter in any website, and the statistics for the traffic as well as a graph demonstrating the increase or decrease of traffic over time is shown. Thanks!!!

admin answers:

Http://www.alexa.com/

To see a website’s traffic just search the website up on the search bar, click ‘site info for -website.com-’ then just scroll down a bit and click ‘see -website.com- traffic details…’
You can also see alot more stuff on there too, such as ‘top sites’.

Nancy asks…

Can anyone tell me why folks are bailing out of my shopping cart?

I have a fairly new web site and I have noticed by looking at the site statistics that I have pretty good traffic already but that visitors are leaving at the shopping cart stage. I was hoping some of you could go to the site, place a bogus order right up to the final point before paying. Then let me know what’s wrong that’s causing customers to leave the shopping cart in droves. The site is http://www.carnivalcrafts.com Click on “WAREHOUSE” for the store section. Thanks.

admin answers:

Maybe they are clicking on continue shopping and then cannot find the Go to Shopping Cart link. Make that link into a button. And somewhere obvious. Use Amazon as a reference.

Not easily finding this link would frustrate me enough to leave the site.

Chris asks…

Are prostitutes being captured and brought into sex trafficking?

I’m writing a paper on the different arguments of the legalization of prostitution. Human trafficking is on the rise, and I’m wondering if a portion of women captured were prostitutes. Example, if the prostitute was captured by someone she thought was a client and sold into sex slavery.

I need reliable data and/or statistics. Best answer will be given to someone who provides credible articles/statistics/etc off the web.

Thank you!

admin answers:

“rejectedzipper” has given a reasonable answer but the age range can be from as young as five (5) to people around 20.

Certainly it is not “prostitutes” that are being kidnapped, it is fresh virgins off the streets.

Some are tricked into thinking they are going to obtain work as domestic servants, some to work in factories while others are offered “modelling” jobs through “modelling agencies”. Others think they are going to work as singers or dancers.

Some are kidnapped off the streets while others are sold by poor parents or relatives.

The age of the victim depends upon the country they are from. Eastern European women are usually around the 14 years and older. Africans are usually around 9 and older. In Cambodia the girls found in brothels can be mostly Vietnamese and around 5 (oral sex until around 9-10 then vaginal sex). In Indonesia the girls are usually around 10 and older although in some military brothels girls as young as 5 can be found being forced to have vaginal sex that either kills them or permanently damages their internal organs. In India the girls, often Nepalese, are around 13 and older. In Sri Lanka (Ceylon) the children can be as young as 8-9 catering for the Child Sex Tourism Trade. Similarly in the Philippines for the Sex Trade and the Child Sex Tourism.

I suggest that you do web searches under the following headings:–
Child Sex Trade, Child Prostitution, Child Sex Slavery, Sex Slavery.

That would give you an abundance of material to cite in your paper.

Betty asks…

is there real visitors come if we purchase web traffic ?

Hi, I’ve observed one blog kept their statistics public through histats. I have observed their posting date is started at april 2010, and their statistics are available from june 2010. i found that their visitors are 6000 a day even at june2010, how they got that much of traffic or visitos in the initial days they are having new visitors in thousands. are they purchased traffic, if we purchase real people will come for visit or how they got huge trafffic. and they are using clicksor advertisements, so how much they are earning for an example

admin answers:

Simple answer no,

There probably just advertising, Thats probably what you mean by purchasing traffic. You advertise, people see the link and they go to your site if they want to. 1 person = traffic.

Your site needs to be good or have a relevant purpose and to be known before it gets good traffic!

Sandra asks…

Is it possible to get free ads by google?

Checking my web statistics, I have had a fair amount of traffic from googleleads, and while browsing last night I found my company on another site in the ‘ads by google’ section. I’ve never signed up for any google ads and can’t imagine they’d want to give me this advertising for free!

Am I losing the plot here!?
*** added info in reply to comments below

The ad is positive, looks genuine and links correctly to my site!

admin answers:

What did the ad look like? Was it positive? Google would never do that without your permission, as you should be able to decide for yourself what the text of the ad is. However, a competitor might do something like that.
I think the best thing to do is to try to get to see the ad again, take a screenshot of it, and then try clicking on it to see where it takes you. With this information, contact Google to see if they can tell you more about it.

Charles asks…

Why so many categories, so many regions but no traffic bar?

Hi,

I visited Yahoo Answers India by a chance, coming from Google.
Today I discovered, Yahoo Answers is run regionally.
Ok.
Regional answers for regional questions.
But it doesn’t make sense to ask general questions as regional ones.

What counts is traffic, number of web visits, number of questions, number of questions answered.

Visiting empty categories, visiting empty regional categories, not visited by anyone, does it make any sense ?

Please have a look how does i work with Google Groups, Usenet groups.
You have categories (global categories) and you can get to know number of subscribers, messags in headlines view.
And what counts the most is statistics .

I have already asked few questions and I am sure today, nobody was interested to give me an answer, as I asked general Yahoo Mail questions in regional forum.

So general should go to general, regional to regional.
There is no need to run regional interfaces to Yahoo Answers
as one general interface is exactly ok
and should follow next is
categories tree, like in Google Groups, Usenet.

Some categories may be specified as regional, some not
but it makes no sense to ask the same general questions at each of regional Answers web forums.

And traffic load bar and statistics are the most important features.

Why should I ask any questions not to be read by anyone in a specified category ?

Please improve Yahoo Answers to smart service.
Usenet groups worked fine for years,
Google Groups worked fine for years,
today number of web forums goes in millions, number of Google Groups goes in millions.

More web forums, groups, categories than users to populate them.

The issue is Yahoo Mail and new settings, flagging inbound traffic as Spam, what actually is not any Spam at all.

Just run self-test and send test e-mail to yourself, to see how it works and what flag gets your self-tested mail.
If spam, as in my case, it mean , there is something wrong with Yahoo Mail as before.

I don’t send spam, keep system clean of viruses, trojans, malware.

IP assigned is dynamic IP assigned by my telecom cell modem operator.
IPs assigned from national operator are rated poor by Senderbase, Ironport, Spamhaus.

What can I do next ?
Already contacted my operator, notified him with a problem
and got standard form reply and no human response in 14 days yet.

Assigning poor rated IP addresses to customers is playing not fair,
any assigned IP should be first checked against mail filtering databases and kept clean, as what I inherit is history of previous users of the same IP as assigned dynamic, temporary to me.

If you know a solution , please let it me know.

Darius

Should I ask my lawyer to contact my national telecom operator
and tell its COB what is he doing wrong ?

admin answers:

I tried reading all this, but it’s a lot & its hard to read. It seems very disconnected.

It sounds to me like you have more than 1 issue that needs to be resolved. And perhaps you’re not asking your question(s) in the most specific category.

It also sounds as if your issues with Y!A need to be taken up with the people who actually run Y!A, not with the people who are answering on Y!A.

As for your mail issue, you need to ask that in the Home > Yahoo! Products > Yahoo! Mail category (and even from there you could go into > Problems with Service or > Spam & Bulk Mail), not the Home > Yahoo! Products > Yahoo! Answers category.

Good luck!

Your Questions About Web Traffic Statistics

William asks…

Help with Google Analytics and Web Traffic Tracking?!?!?

OK so a project I have been working on at my job is to add Google Analytics to our website to track the web traffic and patterns. We have a master domain (www.example.com) and then we have a bunch of sub domains for customers (www.example.com/cust1.htm). We need to track the traffic on each individual cust1.htm, cust2.htm, cust3.htm individually.

Now I was able to accomplish this by creating a bunch of accounts for each domain but I am limited to 25 accounts, and I need to track like cust1.htm through cust150.htm.

I also went down the path of instead of using a bunch of different profiles I used a bunch of accounts, but the UA(analytics code) stopped incrementing properly so my traffic statistics were clumped together, which I have heard others report this problem.

Can anyone suggest a work around to tracking all of my “sub domain” or pages individually? Even a paid product or somethign installed on my server would do.

Please suggest anything, my boss is getting upset :(

admin answers:

Those aren’t sub domains, those are just sub pages, and Google Analytics is designed to track them automatically. You should put the same Google Analytics code on the bottom of every page, and break out the individual page stats using Google Analytics’ tools (Content > Top Content by Title would be your best bet).

James asks…

Is it possible for anyone to see my web traffic analytics?

Similiar to how I can view my own website statistics & analytics through Google Analytics, is it possible for someone else to see this same information–such as an advertiser who is interested in buying ad-space on my site?

admin answers:

They cannot see it through Google Analytics but there are other websites that offer to views a website’s information, traffic quantity/origin, number of SEO backlinks, etc.

Ruth asks…

Are there any websites that you can use to help you see the traffic statistics of your website for free?

Any measure is fine: number of servers, percentage of web traffic, volume of transactions, whatever.

Where can I find a web statistics tool that will tell me a site’s traffic/weekday and traffic/hour of the day?

I can’t get that form www.alexa.com or from www.compete.com, so I’m looking for other tools.

Thank you!
It is not for my own website. I want the stats for someone else’s website.

admin answers:

I think the best free stat tool to do this is Histats.com. They provide a really in-depth analysis of your site’s traffic and have many awesome counters as well. I’d give them a shot.

Nancy asks…

What is a good traffic for new websites like 1-3 months old?

I own a website,  that provides the latest technical news about everything. Now since its one months passed already, I got almost 200+ average unique visitors per day according to awstatus web statistics tool. I want to know, how much web traffic is good for one month old website? and how much it should be when my website will be 6 months old?

Thank you.

admin answers:

Traffic is good, but the better barometer is: What is the quality of your traffic? What is the objective of your site and whether that 200+ unique visitors do what you want them to do?

If this is an ecommerce site, does the site’s 200+ visitors buy?
If this is an advertising-supported site, do they respond to your ads by clicking or buying from your advertiser?

I don’t really like Awstats because it is a log analysis tools that also counts search engine bots. So those 200+ may not all be people visiting your site but robots of the search engines

I would switch to Google Analytics, which is also free but offers a wider range of analytics data that you can use to better gauge how your business is performing
