Observations
  • “QR code” -related keywords still continue to dominate 7 months after our two posts about QR codes were published, however, traffic for those keywords is continuing to gradually drop off as I still haven’t followed my own advice and written another post about QR codes with links to the first to posts.
  • Just as in September keywords #3 and #7 are about webinars, and the bounce rate is still almost 100% because I did not do my recommended action step of modifying that post to engage those visitors.
  • Note to self: it’s not much use to review analytics and create action steps if you’re not going to do them. (Ouch!)
Top 10 Blog Post in October
Observations
  • 3 of the top 10 posts were published in October and 2 in late September.  The other 5 were published more than 7 months ago, once again showing the importance of search engines in bringing visitors to our blog.
  • Of the 5 posts published in October and late September that made the top 10, 4 of them had to do with social media, which says something about where my interests and our readers interests are right now.
Wonky Keywords
