This is about Traffic!

This is about traffic -- buying traffic -- and how to get more of it. It is about how people search, the words they use. Use their words -- often enough -- and you will be found.

Our custom reports help you find out

  • How people search in your market
  • What word combinations work best
  • Who's on top -- how leading brands rank
  • What people want to know about your products and services
In other words, how to get found -- even in highly contested markets!

Where is Your Cyber-Store?

Ever hear the first three rules of retailing?
Location, Location, Location!

So where is your store in cyber-space?

Your cyber-store store address is your keywords! Unless you are running a multi-million dollar advertising campaign, most people find you in the search engines by the words you use. If your words match match the words they search with, you get found. If you show them you have what they want right at the top, they will stay and look around your site.

Your internet store front is not your home page; it is your META Description tag, and the first use of each key word in your text. That is what people see in most of the search engine listings. It should tell people why they should look at your page.

If you understand these concepts, we can help you find the right words for your products and services. Our market research will help drive more traffic, more buying traffic to your web pages. Call us at 408-705-2284, 10 - 7 Pacific time. (1-11pm Eastern time)

Explanation of terms

  • Rank: Number of items more popular than this one. Based on samples selected for "Used".
  • Where -T denotes a tie, counting does not stop.
  • Percent: Percentage use in queries using "Used".
    Percentage is based upon 1772 "used" related queries sampled.
  • Competing pages: Pages found for the single keyword named in the line.
  • Strength: Very crude measure of the traffic a keyword may attract.Strength = #Queries x ( #Queries / #Web pages )
  • Links are to the statistical report page for the selected word.

"Used" Web Page Demographics

Writing "Used" web pages? Use META keywords with more market share -- less existing page competition, yet fair usage in queries related to your main topic. Why compete head-on in keyword neighborhoods where page demographics give you poor market share? ao where "Used" competition is less fierce, and each query for your keywords is more likely to get you responsive hits. Writing for other keywords? Subscribe to a report listing your most important words. We can help you with that. E-Mail

Most search engines only scan the first thousand characters of the meta tags, and penalize those who engage in keyword spamming. Make each keyword count. Play fair, and people will play fair with you.

What is the price of a web presence? Yes, the pages and servers can cost money; but the real cost is the labor of handling e-mail from prospects.

You are not accepting e-mail? Then you are turning away prospective customers who want more detail than you present on your web pages. Yet if your pages attract too many cruisers and tire kickers, you will drown trying to keep up with your e-mail.

The answer is "narrow-casting" your pages to specific demographic market clusters based upon what vocabulary your prospective customers are using when they ask about your products.

Use those words and phrases to target your web pages to interested participants and buyers, not "channel surfers" and "tire kickers" with nothing better to do than take up your time and waste your web budget. Quality content, not quantity and fancy graphics, brings true customers.

Remember, your store front is your meta tags, not your graphics loaded home page. Most hits come from search engines, bypassing your home page for the content pages on your site. (We can help)

"Used" Web Queries

This web market research report is based on a statistical sampling of "Used" matching keywords used in searches on the World Wide Web. Click on the keyword links in the tables for reports on associated keywords.

How To Use This Market Research Report

There are two sources of keywords: Your customers and your customers! Find what words your customers have used to find you by looking through your web server logs. Find the words you are not found by, by using our more selective custom reports. Then use those words in your text, headers, and meta tags.
  • To help you write pages people want to read:
    • To see which topics people look for more often.
    • To identify Targets of Opportunity -- sub-topic areas with growing interest within your topic.
    • To identify hot words to put in titles and headers to keep your readers reading.
  • To help you build your search engine strategy:
    • To see how many pages compete over your keywords.
    • To identify keywords with less competition, where your pages can have more effect.
    • To see which topic specific keywords to put in the first 1000 characters of your meta tags.
    • To weed out the less valuable keywords from your Meta tags, so they don't grow too long.
Do people read things they are not interested in? Find out what they ARE interested in BEFORE you write. Then use those words and phrases in:
  • Title
    • <TITLE> Bold Headline </TITLE>
    • Your primary link!
    • aet their attention!
    • aet them to ask "What is this?"
    • <META NAME="description" CONTENT="what this is">
    • Your store front display on the web!
    • What have you got?
    • Why should I read it?
    • Try to keep it under two lines.
    • Use more pages, not longer meta descriptions!
    • <META NAME="keyword" CONTENT="word1, word2,...">
    • Your essential words
    • Primary words to index by
    • Primary words to find your page under
    • Help eliminate those NOT looking for your topic
    • Max about 1000 characters
    • Remember, attract users, not cruisers!
  • Header lines
    • Separate related but different sections
    • Is this section relevant to my problem?
    • Can I skip this section?
  • Navigation bars
    • <A NAME="word"> ... </A>
    • <A HREF="#word">Word </A>
    • aive users quick access within pages
  • Most important of all, The Text Itself!
    • Use keywords instead of "it"
    • Use them in meaningful phrases
  • Do NOT SPAM the Search Engines!
    • Do not string the same words over and over!
    • Do not hide words behind color backgrounds!
    • Do not jam keywords in meaningless phrases!
    • Different topics, Different pages!
  • Attract Users, not Cruisers
    • People talk about meaningful pages
    • People link to meaningful pages

Questions and Answers

How do I get a better position on the search engines?
A: First, see which search phrase "cyber street" has more of your kind of traffic. See "
Zero Competition".

Q: How often do you sample
A: We sample about three to six million queries a week, two to four thousand queries a minute.

Q: Which engines do you poll
A: As many as we can. Want a free report? Tell us how to get a reliable public peephole for an engine we don't already poll, and we'll give you a custom subscription free.

Q: What about down time?
A: Engines may become unavailable from time to time, and some even recycle fake query pages. Our own down time averages less than an hour or two a week. That's because we are UNIX based, with machines that run for months without crashing.

Q: What variations do you find between the engines?
A:The top items on the larger general purpose engines are quite similar. Often, the more common words may be a few positions higher or lower in rank on the different engines. There are FAR more variations hour to hour and day to day, than between engines. After all, the nature of our preoccupations changes on daily, weekly, and seasonal cycles. Hot news items usually hit all the engines.

Q: Isn't that like playing the stock market?
A: YES!You are investing in a stock market of themes and words. Where are you going to get the information to make a wise investment? Subscribe!

Q: What are the Custom reports like?

  • We Can Help

    Remember, just because a word or phrase is popular, does not mean it will bring a lot of hits, or that you even want the traffic it will bring! You need to focus on word groups and phrases that can give you favorable market share for your products. Aim to retain interested participants, not entertain those with nothing better to do. To get productive hits, learn what your customers are using in their search engine queries, the demographics of existing pages, and structure your web strategies around them. A good place to start, is looking in your logs for the queries that search engines bring to your site. See for more details on our log analysis services.

    We can help with:

    • Site architecture
    • Content generation
    • CaI-BIN programming
    • Site automation
    • Text Analysis Services
    • Documents to web conversion
    E-mail us: or call 408-705-2284 10am - 7pm Pacific time, 1pm - 10pm Eastern time.
