Google Analytics for SEO
« on: 05-20-2010, 12:04:52 »
Ok I know google analytics is great for tracking traffic, keywords etc. But how exactly do you use it for SEO. Are there special features with it that allows you to really enhance your SEO Work. I use it in a very basic way and I know there are loads of cool reports.

What's the best part of analytics over other tracking software applications on the market ?

Well, you can't specifically track the exact position of the keyword that was clicked like you can do with AdWords.
But it is possible to determine the page he was on. A ranking tool can tell you over and over again that a certain keyword is around position 15 in Google while Google Analytics claims he is on page 1 (position 1 to 10).
This effect can come from 'personalized search' or 'local results' that can influence the Google rankings dramatically.
People see other results than you see with your ranking tools.
And therefore you need Google Analytics to do the real ranking.

well it's basically just an information resource, something to help you track where your site is currently at... Nothing more. SEO isn't just the doing part, you need to be able to monitor your site for which way it's moving and that's what analytics does for you.

Yes, you can use with other ad programs like Adbrite. I think GA is probably the best and most accurate stats tool out there.
