All You Need to Know About Your Website Traffic is Contained in 5 Key Stats
You built that content rich web page optimized for your Keyword phrases but is it really working? By looking at these 5 Stats readily available from your CPanel you will quickly learn what you are doing well and what you need to improve on.
Most Web Hosts will provide you with a Cpanel, where you can create E-mail Accounts, Upload Web Pages and check your stats. Most of the Cpanel's are very similar if not identical to the one my Hosts uses.
When it is time to check my web page traffic statistics I click on Log and then Web/FTP Stats and finally AWStats. I am now presented with a List of all kinds of Stats to look at. Daily History, Monthly History, Country, Browser, Day of Week, Hour or Day. Trying to understand them all will make you dizzy. Since my traffic comes from 3 primary places Search Engines, One Way back links and Reciprocal links I concentrate on the following 5 Stats
1 - Referers Origin
This Stat will give you a breakdown of what percent of your traffic came from the following categories
This stat is a snap shop of your overall traffic. Some questions to ask yourself
2 - Referring search engines
This Stat will list all the major search engines and tell you what percent of your search engine traffic came from each Search engine. It is best to concentrate on the Big 3 (Yahoo, MSN and Google). Google is the Most Popular Search engine with Yahoo a close 2nd and MSn 3rd.
Is the Search engine Traffic to your web page divided the same way? Does any search engine over perfrom or under perform it's internet average?
3 - Referring sites
This will tell you which web pages are your best link partners. If you do article submissions or other forms of linking this will tell you how well this worked. I was shocked to see that 10% of all my non Search engine traffic came from 1 web page where I gave a testimonial.
4 - Search Keyphrases
Here you can see your Top 10 Keyword Phrases as well as a full list of your keyword phrases. Look over the top 10? Are those the one's you expected? Are you surprised by the results? Where can you do better?
Next look over the full list? Do you have under achievers or over archives?
5 - Search Keywords
Unless you happen to be optimizing for a keyword like Babies, Pillows or Graduates you wouldn't need to worry about this Stat. Most of the Keywords reported don't give much useful information. If you are optimizing for a Keyword like babies then find babies in the list and see how well you are doing.

Why You Should NOT Submit Your Site On Search Engines

The Search Engine Of The Future: Mobility Has A Pricetag

SEO, not again!, you may groan. The webmaster world is inundated by articles and "how to's" with regard to SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
Whats All This Hype About Links?
What's all the talk about links we hear about? Reciprocal links? Non-reciprocal links? Targeted links? Link Popularity? I need links. You should have links.
SEM - Research Measures Success
SEM - Research Measures SuccessSearch engine marketing success comes from good research. By applying research to understand your competition and target audience, your optimization efforts will succeed.
The Write to Link Popularity
Incorporating writing as a means of boosting your link popularity can be a turnoff for many webmasters, when in fact it can lead to a wealth of links.I first learnt about link popularity while researching about many different methods that I could use to market a Geocities site I had.
What You Can Expect From Search Engine
Search engines will be a way for you to generate from as little as 20% to as much as 60% of your business online (depending on what other marketing techniques you use).Since there are over 130,000,000 webpages in existence (yes that is 130 million!), it is extremely important to understand how they work and how to increase your chances of being placed in the top 20 of the search results.

Do You Have a Bad SEO Company, or Are You Just a Bad Client?
I admit it, our SEO services are pretty bad.Speaking of bad, the Beatles couldn't sing a tune, John Grisham has never written a decent novel, Dell makes crappy computer's, TiVo's and iPods suck, the Lord of the Rings movies lacked imagination and video killed the radio star.
How To Find Good Keywords
Good keywords are frequently searched for (high demand) but not being targeted by many other websites (low competition). There are a number of tools out there that can help you find them.
PageRank for Websites: Is There More to the Web?
Google's PageRank has been around for years, and in the opinions of a lot of e-business owners, it can make or break a site. Lately, with Google's fingers in every pie, it seems important to remind everyone that there is more to a website than just PageRank.
Search Engines The Masters Of The Internet Universe - Part 1

Look Out MSN Search, Here Comes Gbrowser
It is official, the search engine wars are in full swing. On Tuesday, February 01, 2005 MSN officially rolled out its new search solution to all of its websites, including MSN.
Breaking the Myth About Page Rank (PR)

Links are a crucial part of attaining high search rankings, but you must be very careful about to whom you link. I'm going to help you develop a simple link strategy for your website that will help you decide which sites to link to so you're making your way up the search engine rankings and not accidentally hurling yourself backwards.

Reciprocal Linking Scams, What to Look for and How to Avoid Them
