Marketing for the Web – My Second Stage of SEO

My second stage of Search Engine Optimization is Google Analytics.

Google Analytics provides powerful digital analytics for anyone with a web presence, large or small. It’s one of the most powerful digital analytics solutions available – and it’s free for anyone to use.

I will use the data and statistics to analyise if people access my site, where are they likely to go on, where abouts are my market from and what can i do to get more hits on my website. But beside all of this is need some hits on it first so i will let me friends have a look at it, and maybe post it upon some gaming streams i watch just to get the hits to analysis.

How Google anayltics say you can use your data:

  • Tracking multiple websites
    Google Analytics will track as many websites as you own! We’ve provided multiple reporting views in your account, so that you can view individual reports for specific domains or sub-domains.
  • Tracking your blog, MySpace or Facebook pages
    To use Google Analytics to track your pages on Facebook, MySpace, WordPress or other solutions, we recommend that you search for 3rd-party widgets that simplify the Analytics set up for pre-defined site templates. You may not be able to use Analytics on sites where you cannot edit the page code (such as on MySpace, for example). However, in most cases you will be able to find plug-ins or widgets that will help you use Analytics in your page.
  • Tracking visits from RSS feeds
    In order for Google Analytics to track data, it is necessary that the Google Analytics tracking code gets executed. Since most RSS/atom readers cannot execute JavaScript, Analytics will not count pageviews that are loaded through an RSS reader. Analytics requires that the visitor execute a JavaScript file on Google’s servers in order to track that page view.
  • Using Analytics with other web analytics solutions
    You can run Google Analytics in parallel with any third-party or internal solution that you’ve already deployed.

I will more then likely setting up a Facebook and Twitter site for my elements site and add it to the bottom of my page.
