So you want your site to take off. Here’s how!

Action=Behaviour right! And with every action there is a reaction. That is the behaviour. Trying to figure out the ‘why’ of this combo keeps statisticians’ busy using various mathematical equations.

 

If you have a full picture you can make deductions based on it. If you are shown half a picture then the mind has to imagine what is happening at the other side.

 

The same goes for Google analytics and statistics.

They input data from a site but if they only have one part of the picture, the analytics side you won’t see the full picture. So you must link analytics and adwords.

Yes the world is based on numbers and statistics. Numbers and statistics

 

won’t account for the outsider or outlier but in metrics that outlier has a place. By linking your Google analytics and adwords accounts you will see the reason behind the numbers and what that outlier does as well.

Google teaches you all about SEO and Adwords

Google AdWords is Search advertising, or pay per click, and is not the same as SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation, where clicks to your website through organic listings are free.

This came as a response on boards.ie.
This link bought me to a site explaining the difference but also to where you have an option to do Googles’ own SEO and Adword online course.
It suggests starting at the beginning.
For anyone who wants to know how to measure what is happening on your site start with the ‘Digital Fundamental Analytics’ and best of all it’s FREE.
What you learn here is how to approach your site in a measured marketing capacity.
Google don’t make it difficult. The guy who gives the course is clear and understandable.

See for yourself

SEO is not McDonalds patience PPC is but it has its advantages it’s immediate.

It really is what you would do if you had a shop on the highstreet. This time it is all done in Google analytics and you can definitely DIY it.
For instance you can filter hits on your site both qualitatively( behaviours and live etc) and quantitatively ( how many,when).
These are the measuring tools used in most analytics the quantity is what is most used, qualitatively can be a subjective and contextual measurement.

You learn by having a dummy site which Google set up for you. Then instead of learning by listening you learn experientially.
If you have a simple site you won’t have to make too many inputs to measure what is happening and what the user is doing.

It really gives a great perspective on how to keep on top of human behaviour as they use your site’s call to action.
There is a brief test after each video, which I didn’t notice as I stuck to the fold view. If you do this test after each vid you’ll get a good handle on what you have learned.
This is SEO. Not Adwords. Oh Yeah on boards.ie thank you.
So far I’m onto module 5 and 5.2

Isn’t WordPress just for Blogging? NO! Get a Website at WP

What if I Don’t Want to Blog? No Problem!

Many people think that a WordPress site is “just a blog” and that you have to write every day to keep it going.
You can use it that way – WordPress makes it easy to build an online journal, or “blog”.
But if you prefer you can make all static pages. Build a few pages with photos of your artwork or product or hobby, write a bit about yourself and your business or interests, and make it easy for people to find you if you want to be found.
Just like a “real” website!

Your blog can be part of your New Website.

You don’t have to let people comment on your pages if you don’t want them to ( comments are the best part if you want to build an audience!). And you don’t have to blather on about your private life every day if you don’t want to. Of course, if you do want to, you can.

 

You can build a few pages, and then never touch your website again — except to check occasionally to see if you need to hit the button that keeps the WordPress program updated. How hard is that?
We’re not talking about a lifetime commitment here.
Although it could be, if that’s what you want.

Why Should You Build Your Website With WordPress?

Because you can. Fast, Effective, Reliable, Genuine, Trustworthy.
Build a website fast, and you can easily change the way it looks whenever you get the urge.
There are thousands of free WordPress templates that you can use, or you can use the new default template that comes with the WordPress installation.
