Site Search In Google Analytics: This Report Is MONEY! is a post by SEO expert Greg Shuey. For information about our SEO services or more great SEO tips and tricks, visit the SEO.com blog.
The data I get using Site Search in Google Analytics makes this one of my favorite reports to look at and digest on a regular basis. Why? Because this data shows you exactly what your visitors are looking for when they come to your website. Knowing what your visitors are looking for can help you in many different ways, some of which we will discuss below.
To get started, its important to understand that most analytics packages, Google Analytics included, are typically set up with the most basic settings and to get the most out of your analytics package, you will have to spend some time customizing it. One of the things you will have to customize is the Site Search section.
By default, Site Search is turned off when you install Google Analytics. This is because not every website has a search function and every search function works just a little bit different. If your website is one of the many out … Read the rest

Today we’re taking a different angle than we normally do on the blog. As you know, recently New Zealand and Christchurch specifically was seriously affected by an earthquake on February 22nd. After Rand sent out an email last week for those chosen to participate in the 2011 Ranking Factors, our friend Kalena Jordan from Search Engine College responded asking if we could help raise money for the New Zealand Red Cross to help with the aftermath of the earthquake. The answer was "Absolutely!" so we thought about ways to include the community.

Whether you are using performance-based cost-per-action affiliate networks or regular pay-per-click, the trick to making more money lies in how much traffic you can attract to those offers. Internet marketers understand that is isn’t just a simple case of getting the highest earnings-per-click (EPC) offer, it’s also about understanding how to attract highly targeted traffic to these offers in large streams. If you are having a little bit of trouble generating the income you desire from affiliate marketing, think about implementing some of these traffic-generating strategies to amp up the performance and your final payout.
Join several article directories and start posting targeting articles in the niche you are trying to market. This does two things, it allows you to quickly find people who might have an interest in the product or service being promoted in your affiliate offer and it also let’s you add a link in the resource section sending them back to some area where you can market them further. Just keep in mind that there are guidelines on what you can do with these articles, although making them search-engine friendly with keywords in your niche is always appreciated.

About 2 months ago I signed upto an internet coaching program called Maverick Money Makers run by a very savvy internet marketing business giant called Mack Michaels.
Mack is not as well known as most of the internet marketing gurus online and thatâ€™s for a good reason. Heâ€™s not the kind of person to put out a ton of products simply to line his bank account with your hard earned money.
You see, Maverick Money Makers is a members only coaching program that encompasses all of Mackâ€™s work. If there is something new that Mack discovers about making money online then he simply creates a step by step video to explain everything in detail and you get access to it in the club.
Most gurus would simply create a new product, orchestrate a big product launch and sucker you into buying yet another product that will gather virtual dust on your computers hard drive.
Let me say this, and I donâ€™t ever say this lightlyâ€¦
Simply Put: This is the only program you ever need to buy to learn how to make money online. It does not matter if you are a beginner or an advanced marketer there are
