Use Your Logs To Generate New Keyword Tactics

Abstract keyword tactics from your logs!

I was checking the traffic logs to our Blog and I noticed someone had found a post by conducting a search which included the date the post was put live – the 10th of August.

The search was for ‘top 10 christmas presents 2007’ and if you check the resulting search you will see the ‘10‘ is highlighted and probably helped the blog post rank number three for this search!

Now I am not going to suggest this is going to drive any traffic or sales (well, not until I get Adsense up and running!) but it shows it can help to check to see how users are finding your site.

The search was on AOL but as we all know Google powers AOL and guess what, the search for ‘top 10 christmas presents 2007’ ranks #3 on Google!

From now on all my ‘Top Ten’ list posts will be put live on the 10th of every month, it all may just help!

Oh, and the original post title: SEO for Christmas – Do It Now!

Happy Shopping!
