Do you have traffic and not know what to do next? This is a common question! Here are some things to do in order to figure out where that traffic is coming from.

Knowing where your traffic is coming from and what your most popular content is can help you grow traffic even more, and start to make sales.

From this data, you can see

  • what your most popular posts are
  • how they are getting found
  • how long they spend on your popular pages

Then you can

  • dig deeper for more content ideas
  • do more research and improve your current posts
  • make changes to popular pages and monetize them

I didn’t talk much about the ‘how make sales’ from your pages bit, but in the last minute or two I give you some ideas. Mostly it’s about:

  • fixing errors
  • looking for link opportunities
  • directing people to monetized pages
  • having people take other action like opting in, liking, or sharing
  • improving call to actions
  • changing your offer or product

Here are some additional resources on WA with more information on how to analyze your traffic from Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools:

Very helpful training as usual Nathaniell, do you know you can change the way GA reports not provided kw data to show the page the user landed on that way you get an idea to what was searched for. I believe Jay did a webinar on it.

Yes, the webinar is linked above. I watched it before, but totally forgot how he did it so didn't mention it in the video. Looks like I need to re-learn it!
