Seeing and using Google Analytics for the first time can be a bit daunting…
Statics for website usage and access have improved and got more complex over the years. The days of counting “hits” is now long gone.
My SEO Guy found this nice explainer article on what each of the technical term means at Google Analytics.
Here’s just a snippet.
Once again it has been some time since we updated everyone on our own standings in Google for our chosen prime keywords – SEO Brisbane – so it is time for an update…
Our last ranking update had us at position #32 for ‘SEO Brisbane’, and we were pleased that we had seen a nice rise in our ranking. I explained in part then that the rise was due to “work” we had been doing, and that we were pleased with the outcome.
But now.. I know in recent times we have not been doing the “work” required, and I am expecting a drop in our Google ranking.
Before I check, I will have a look at Google Webmasters and see how we are doing… one sec….
We have just taken on a new client who is a Real Estate agent. This presented a number of new issues and learning experiences for us, as this is a highly competitive term. But it is also a very “localised” term in most geographical areas.
So we had a bit of research to do, to find out what exactly what to target, how to target it and the best methods to use.
This was compounded as we were using proprietary websites and had limited control over some of the elements that we would normal use.
So it will be an interesting trial, and the results that we would normally expect may be a little harder to achieve, but I am confident that we can make it a success.
Will report back shortly.
The SEO Guy
Good news is the news of the day thanks to our friends at Google and some “work” done here at My SEO Guy.
Last update we were “ranked in position #46 for our chosen prime keywords.“.. and now… <drum roll> we are ranked in position #32.
A marked improvement, and a significant one, as we continue to push to the front page.
So why the improvement…? Without giving too much away.. we have been “working” on getting that improvement. Some of the work has been off-site, and some on-site, but the biggest influence has been on-site work done right here on the blog.
We have just started working for a new SEO Client here in Brisbane, and it has some new challenges for My SEO Guy.
The Client is a accommodation type hotel here in the Brisbane CBD. This, as you can imagine, is a highly competitive market and keywords are sort after by many websites and and companies representing them.
So we were surprised a little by the early success that we achieved for this ‘small’ hotel in Brisbane.
The update we did the other day, made me go looking, in some detail, at the words the My SEO Guy does rank well for. By doing this analysis, we can find out a couple of key bits of information.
1. What words we do rank for.
2. What pages are ranked for the keywords above
3. Why are those pages ranked for those keywords
The answers to these questions can help guide our(or your) Search Engine optimisation plan, and tell us(you) what is working and what isn’t and what need’s adjusting or deleting. This analysis can really help change the effectiveness of the work that we do.
Well sort of free. :)
Have you got a small business or trade business website that needs some Search Engine Optimisation, Keyword Analysis, or Keyword Research?
Would you like to trade your business skills or trade expertise for work on your website?
My SEO Guy needs work from the trades listed below.
The answer to that question is still no… but we are headed in the right direction.
Like most people we took a break over Christmas, so we dont have much new information to report. We are back to work now though and continuing the work we need to do to get My SEO Guy to the First Page of Google.
Traffic to the website has been steady, and keywords steadily improving, so we are more thatn happy with our results so far… But our aim is to be on the First Page of results.
A little over two weeks ago we told you of a great result for a new SEO client, which was their website reaching the first page of Google search results in just one week. This was an outstanding result for a term that is extremely competitive. How competitive?… other businesses are paying up to $10.00 per click to have Google Ads placed in the ‘paid’ results section of the Google results page.
So where is the site now? Position #3 on the first page of Google results for the prime keyword phrase, and that gives you results like this. Continue reading
