Analyze Your Way to the Top!

Get More Traffic – Analyze Your Stats and Get More Top Rankings!

A friend of mine has been doing the AU thing in his spare time for 2 months (newbie) and I asked him how he was doing. He said ok, but he said he wasn’t getting as much traffic as he thought considering how many pages he put up.He had two sites – 1 was a mish mash directory type site and the other a cute little tighter themed fashion site with a nice look and good organization. 

I asked him to show me his Astracker stats (AdsenseGold) and we walked through all the clicks he was getting and where they came from and he must of had 1,000 top rankings for his 75 or so pages on that one site. 

 That site was all stock unmodified AU articles. I showed him how to use his click stats from Astracker to get his rankings higher.

He had no idea he had so many top rankings and it was an eye opening experience to see where the traffic and clicks were coming from.

After looking at the stats he had a whole new perspective and felt like he had made some accomplishments and was on the right track.

Are you on the right track?

Do you study your stats to see where the traffic to your web site is coming from?

Your statistics present you with the most valuable information anywhere on earth! More valuable than my top tips! More profitable than any gurus best advice… Your stats can help you make what you have alreadyy done SO MUCH MORE successful! With very little effort!

The thing was, my friends site was cute looking and his site looked good but the pages were not optimized… he had bad titles, hardly any external text links (much of it WRONG) and still was getting decent traffic with that 1 site (the other site was just not happening).

Another reason to never expect 1 site to be a proper adequate testing ground.

I told my friend that for the length of time his pages were indexed it was actually good traffic and very encouraging to see how many keywords that the search engines were ranking him on… and this was on a PageRank 0 site! It was so new it didn’t even have PageRank yet it was all over Google.

I guess the moral to this story is that you sometimes have to take a step back to see where you are really at. In this case my friend was making decent money, decent traffic and had excellent reputation developing with Google. And he didn’t even do anything such as link campaigns to let them know what his pages were about.

Just a few strategic changes such as adding secondary words to his TITLES + finding words that are raning and adding more occurances to the pages, plus making text links for those phrases in the blogs, could mean the difference between his getting good traffic and turning that one site into a monster!

Funny but people, even smart people like my friend expect everything to just happen for them with no thought or input as to the direction they will go…. and the fact of the matter is without doing anything other than building sites with Article Undeground articles in xsitepro and linking a few in the blogs he already is getting what I consider dynamite traffic and decent click money for a new site with NO PAGEARNK!

A perfect stepping stone to a lucrative career in web publishing if he could multiply what he has already done. Why not make more sites like that?

We analayzed his stats and I showed him a few examples of how to take it to the next level and now he is thrilled and so excited. He never realized that Google alone had him ranking on 200 + search queries.

So, with my friends permission I soon hope to make a video documenting what he has done so far and ofering suggestions on how to take it to the next level. That will be coming soon for Article Underground members.

The question of the hour is how do I help communicate to people who only want to do the simple things with minimal effort and brain power many of whom only want to push a button and make instant money, that if they spend just a little brain power analyzing their stats that they can really push it to the extreme???

I need to think about that a little! That is my challenge! Alot of people get it – but I need to pass on the kool aid so it snaps into gear with more folks!

As I have said before and my friend has helped illustrate “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

What he considered OK is now exciting and full of potential. All you have to do sometimes is look for the silver lining!

OK, if you don’t have stats you better RUN to this page and buy it now. Time is of the essence. The sooner you install it and tack your stats the faster you’ll info to double and triple your earnings agian and again!



Power of Statistics Part 1 – In this video I show how stats will help you make more money. How to get more top rankings by improving what you already have got going for you. Web stats will show you the keyword phrases that are already bringing your web site visitors.


How to use PLR Articles creatively


  1. I think this is something we all need to remember is to stay focussed and give your content sites enough time to see the outcome. Then by using a tracker you can make the necessary changes to revenue. Great post Mike!

  2. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Mike. I was wondering what other tools you might recommend to track site statistics?

    Have you evaluated other software beside AdsenseGold? Have you looked at statcounter.com?

  3. You are absolutely spot on yet again Mike! I think their is a temptation to expect instant results and remaining focussed can be difficult. I give each project 3 months to see what really happens.

  4. Hi Mike,
    Great Post as per always.
    One reason that maybe a lot of people don’t start analysing their stats and acting on them is probable that they don’t understand what they are telling them. In my experience people are afraid of what they don’t understand and therefore it gets pushed to the back of their minds. So maybe a video on analysing stats or should I say more simple “what are they telling me” and how to put this information into practice would be of some use.
    Also maybe in the video you could mention what good stats should include. I notice you mention Adsense analyser is this different than other stats because I for one have no idea.
    My son and I have a godaddy hosting account (unlimited domains)This has stats enabled which are analog 5.1 (www.analog.cx) with report magic. We looked at the stats this morning but we do not understand what they are telling us and I don’t consider myself slow in understanding technical matters. Or is it that other stats programs tell a different story:-)
    Saludos Ian

  8. It is very important to look at a websites statistics. You might be given a rank for a keyword you didnt expect to get or you didnt optimize for. These are they keywords that google things your site should have authority for. There are always hidden gems like things in the stats of a website.

  9. Thanks Mike for this great post.

    What makes online marketing really great is that you can measure everything from visitors to landing pages. When I was working in the corporate world, stats is one of the very important component of business meetings and marketing programs.

    It’s a pity that some marketers don’t exploit analytics to maximize earnings and start conversations with their visitors. Then again, it’s not yet too late to start measuring and analyzing :)

  10. Nowadays it is extremely easy to install log analyzier and with use interface that requires no technical knowledge whatsoever. But nothing beat google analytics IMHO.

  11. There’s such a huge amount of information you can gather form stats, especially Google Analytics. For a free tool it’s incredibly useful, particuarly for looking at keywords you can use for more targeted posts.

  15. At 7 June, 2010, the latest iphone 4 generation was announced. It’s been a high time to get the iphone 4 white, or we may lost the fashion trend. Don’t we?

  16. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index, which covers both A and B shares, shed 102.72 points to 3,369.99.The index slumped 37 percent in the first quarter of 2008, posting the biggest percentage quarterly drop in 15 years.”The market stayed in a downward trend as the government has not issued major market-boosting policies.” said Liao Wenkai, an analyst at Hengtai Securities.”Investor confidence was severely hit by recent sharp falls and they are overreacting to any negatives.” Liao also added that China’s high inflation would be a drag on corporate earnings.Luo, Wang Fengxiu and the other senior citizens in and around the stadium may not have to worry about employment when the situation returns to normal. Children too don’t have to worry about missing classes and disrupting their education because tent schools, which can hold up to 2,000 students, have been set up outside Jiuzhou Stadium.But adults like Wang Jun have to wait till the fear of strong

  19. There are people who tend to focus too much on various SEO activities and forget to analyze the statistics. Failing to do so could cost the effectiveness of the strategy. Successful web owners and entrepreneurs spend a great deal of time with analysis of statistics. Mainly because this is where they base their SEO strategy on.
