If you are a blogger and you have yet to install Google Analytics, stop what you are doing right now and go get it. I'll wait - go on.
For those of you who aren't bloggers, Google Analytics is a sophisticated tracking system for your blog's traffic. Total number of visitors, "bounce rate", global breakdown, you name it.
The only real reason you need to get Google Analytics is the Keyword tracking feature. In other words, what phrases did people type into Google that lead them to your blog.
I give you: actual Keyword Searches that landed on my blog: (did not make this up)
"how to invite people out for happy hour"
um.....just a thought, but how about: "want to go out for happy hour?"
"what meaning happy hour"
it meaning many alcohols in start of night times.
"hip happy hotties"
Why, thank you ;)
No argument here.
"how do words be made"
Go ask the guy at happy hour.
"Jonas eat him"
"cougars for the Jonas Brothers"
I like your thinking: we may need to organize.
I'm guessing he meant "big" but BG's nipples are hot too.
"embarrassing doctor visit butt blog turnover"
I can totally see how this sounds like me, but it wasn't me.
"where are the Jonas brothers as we speak"
Dude, I don't KNOW.
"small child kicked me in the testicles + pluto."
I'm confused- are you combining pain advice and astronomy in one search?
"Hilary Clinton's pantsuit size"
Who in God's name is googling this?
"I just want to pee on her face"
Please, please don't visit my blog again.
and last but not least,
"ginormous purple genitals"
Don't think you found what you were looking for , but good luck with that.
Google Analytics: Let someone else do the blog material for you.
