Case Study – Visibility in SERPs

Rank and position of a particular web or blog page in search engine results affect your click-through rates and, ultimately, conversion rates for your landing pages.

There is no need to spend money on fancy software or SEO experts for search engine optimization. Some basic SEO practice could put your site well positioned on the first page of search engine results.

We view our site stats for recent hits a couple of times a day. We are pleased to find at these random checks that our website or blog pages have been ranked 1 to 10 by Tier I Search Engines as well as others for various keyword phrases.

We use Bravenet Hit Counter to monitor our web traffic:

From time to time we publish our site and blog visibility in search engine result pages (SERPs) as case studies. These are actual search results randomly found by us.

In today’s case study we will show how 3 of our blog pages ranked second to fourth on Google search on July 14, 2011.

Procedure

First we check the Referrers / Recent Hits in Visitor Analysis by Bravenet. We click if we find a Referring URL from any search engine that takes us to the search engine result page (SERP). We find the Search Phrase, Search Page, and Rank of our site. Google uses cached page to match search key phrase. We analyze the Cached page so that we could further improve our website or blog pages.
