Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to analyse our websites - it's available online, is easy to use and understand and provides plenty of information.



Baseline

So as a baseline to mark our search engine progress, between 21st October and 9th November we have had 153 visits to the website from 51 unique visitors. Of these visits, only 16 came via search engines, all using the keyword 'picseli'. We currently appear number 1 in Google for Picseli (One advantage of choosing an unusal company name!)



Currently it is only the Picseli home page and blog that have been indexed by Google. To find out which of your website pages are indexed by Google enter site:yourdomain.com in the Google search box. The search results will then return every page from your website that Google knows about. If it returns no pages or very few, you need to do something about it!

Choosing Keywords
Over the next few weeks I will keep an eye on these statistics and keep you posted. However, the first thing to do is identify the keywords I want to be found for. Picseli is one, web design swansea will probably be another, but the competition is high for this and many of the sites currently on the first page have been around for a lot longer than us. But what else is a challenge for?
