This morning’s searches

If you’ve read a few of our rants here, you’ll know how obsessive I am about studying our site’s statistics. There are many reasons for that. Our stats are in real time and seeing exactly what’s going on helps us shape the site for the future.

Today, I thought you might be interested in the search terms that were used this morning that led people to our site. We have a great search engine presence and this is what people who came to the website typed in to find us:

(Oh, I’ve put them in alphabetical order by the way and they are exactly as entered – any typos are not me :) )

If you see your business in that list, that’s good. It means that viewers who searched for you found your article or listing. . So let’s hope that it was looking its best.  But remember our ‘you might also like’ feature. If you have a directory page only, directory pages do not come up in the ‘you might also like’ list.

However, the opposite is true of listings pages. Remember that the ‘you might also like’ feature is automatically generated. The system looks for article which are similar. If you have several articles, they will show up first in the list. Viewers will click on them and find out even more information about your business. Here’s an example:

The screenshot above is the St Tropez listings page. They have been included in several articles, hence the list. When the viewer clicks on the first, they see an illustrated article about St Tropez.  This reinforces the viewer’s positivity about the business.  The second, third and fourth are the same. (You can see that the message here is that if a business has six articles, all their articles will be shown. See below.)

How’s that for a perfect result?

Now take a look at this one. This is a new business (just added yesterday) so none of the related links actually relate to the business as this is the only mention of this business on the site – to date.

The system realizes that this new business relates to food, hence the first two links. After that, it’s a little bit in the dark and just grabs words from other articles.

This is why we recommend at least six articles for the best results. Don’t worry, you don’t have to get them all at once – whenever it suits you. When you’re ready, get in touch :)
