10 Ways to Profit |Blog Search Engine Terms | Actual WordPress Stats

Last Saturday, a mystery caller left messages at my office and on my cell phone. She was trying to track me down to thank me for an article. I returned her call, but haven’t heard back. So, I don’t know which one she liked.

Reader feedback keeps you going and on track. Posting to a blog with viewer stats gives you clues to “best-selling” articles in real time. WordPress’ dashboard reports stats on referrers, number of views and click-throughs.

Here’s a list of search engine terms people used to find Wired PR Works yesterday. . .

Click on the image to enlarge it. A week’s worth of search engine terms follows at the end of the article – no numbers, just terms.  

Here’s how you can profit from your blog’s search term statistics . . .

– match key search terms to your categories, content and post titles to see what’s attracting the traffic and adjust categories [and your topic coverage] to draw additional viewers

– check your page rank for the search term, if you like the positioning, keep posting and nurture a community

– follow a few experts you like and cover their latest news on your blog with an affiliate link to their products, where appropriate

– chart changes in terms over a few weeks and readjust your writing plans on a monthly basis to add depth and consistency

– respond quickly with updates to most popular stories as they age so they appear fresh, not stale

– when you do a search for one of your search terms and it comes up on the light side, write a post or two and claim the search space as your own if you want that traffic

– promote the charities you support with a donation link, especially when they may not have a high page ranking site of their own

– search other blogs to see who’s writing about the same topics you are, check out their blog, comment on a few posts and then email the blogger to request a reciprocal blogroll posting

– type in the search term and see what else comes up; you may be surprised to find you own an obscure term that could generate some faithful traffic

– use the blog’s search term stats as a traffic estimator for new projects

Here’s my list of search terms from the last week . . .
