Reviewed Google Analytics

What to do with your stats?

From our 90 day Blog/SEO challenge we have reviewed Google Analytics in an earlier blog… now what?  This information is valuable and will begin another challenge.

The good – Google Analytics shows we are getting traffic and people are staying on the site for two minutes and more.  The bad – the phone is not ringing.  So, how to get the users to contact us on the site or be reminded to contact: Our goal with the new challenge is to implement a “pop up contact form” that will trigger after the user has been on our site for a specific time.  With most users hanging out for 2-3 minutes, we will have the pop-up say something like “Are you interested? Contact us now!!!” and have the form right in the box for them to fill out.

From the reviewed Google Analytics a couple choices are alternative domains and/or using our blog and landing pages with the keyword(s) in our domain. What does this mean, it means more testing.

So what is an alternate domain?  Alternate domain is any domain that has been added to your server after the primary domain. By default, all alternate domains are completely independent domains. They can have their own content, email addresses, and settings.  The way works is we would get a domain name that is based on keywords and a location the we would SEO on a single page. It would be separate from our site and just be a landing page with information, a link and a contact form. Short and simple and straight to the point.

Alternate domains are fairly close to how we utilize the blog posts to pull people in based on their information they’re looking for, except in this case we would be targeting keywords, bringing the users to a different site that is monitored by different analytics.  This is a never-ending review of a website.  Something that each and every one of us will have to do to get results from our sites.  We want to know if prospects are truly interested then they will be referral traffic from this domain landing page. It will help weed out the people who are truly interested and those who are just surfing.

Landing pages is another part of our focus based on the results.  According to Ubounce, “In the purest sense, a landing page is any web page that a visitor can arrive at or “land” on. However, when discussing landing pages within the realm of marketing and advertising, it’s more common to refer to a landing page as being a standalone web page distinct from your main website that has been designed for a single focused objective. This means that your landing page should have no global navigation to tie it to your primary website. The main reason for this is to limit the options available to your visitors, helping to guide them toward your intended conversion goal.”

From our 90 day challenge the keyword results are great for our site, we just want them to start clicking “contact”, so we need to put it in their faces.

We have more work to do – we will continue blogging, adding landing pages and deciding if we are going to use alternate domains.
