Analyze Website Traffic Using Google Analytics

Tags : 

There are often situations where either we or our clients want to know the ways through which they can track the performance of URLs they have been redirecting to a different page. If we are running a marketing campaign, the task of measuring the performance of a landing page or tracking conversion rates and tracing our redirects could provide a wealth of information to push the traffic on our business goals.

But the problem is Google Analytics is not able to track what redirect traffic comes through, rather it only gives the raw traffic numbers to the page without tracking if any URL redirected people to it.

Use of Google Analytics: The process of using Google Analytics to see the traffic sources of a specific page in our Google Analytics account is so easy.

To start, we have to Log into the Google Analytics account and navigate to Behavior > Site Content. From there, we can choose whether to view the traffic sources of all our website’s pages or the exit pages.

Here is the process to view the traffic sources of our site’s landing pages which is important as these are the pages which many visitors will land on first while visiting our site.

The next step would be navigate to secondary Dimension > Acquisition > Source/Medium. Here we will see a list of our website’s landing pages complete with the source of our site’s traffic which is the place where visitors were before clicking on the website and also the medium, which is the ways how our visitors arrived at the site.

Creating segments in Google Analytics to view traffic sources: By using the segments feature in Google Analytics, we can track the traffic stats of a specific web page. This method is more advanced and will give us a more detailed look at the traffic sources of specific pages on our website. The Google Analytics Behavior report only provides us a collective view of all our traffic sources by breaking it down into direct, organic and referral traffic.

Although this is helpful but Google Analytics segments can break our traffic sources down even further such as we can also see when the site’s traffic comes from paid traffic sources or social media sources.

Choosing the Right CMS is Important

Tags : 

Whenever we are thinking about building or getting a new website, the task of having a visual look of the site is not that tough but what matters the most is its content which will be managed by effective content management system. So it is important to select the right CMS system.

CMS: In simple words, the content management system is the core of our site which allows us to manage and maintain our web content anything from the light editing of text, uploading pics or videos, adding pages or even whole section to the menu. Managing our site by using CMS does not need any technical knowhow such as HTML etc.

Pros of using right CMS: Having a good and quality content management system is the soul and heart of our site for ensuring the update and fresh content of our site. It includes SEO optimization, driving traffic to the site and getting more visitors.

Here some benefits of CMS:

Work efficiently: By choosing the right font or layout, it is easy to get lost in our computer screen and spend hours by building the optimized pages and sites in half of the time. Due to the right CMS, we do not have the time to waste on one individual aspect or another.

Standardized and uniform pages: As everyone have their own tests and preferences but using the several different styles on one site looks so sloppy and untidy while a CMS template keeps our site looking well-organized, well planned with all of those things. Complicated CSS can make our sites difficult to view on some devices but a CMS with templates ensure that our content will be readable on every site visitor’s screen

Smoother workflow: The sites with scratch does not offer smooth workflows and web designers and writers have to be in constant communication for publishing content but with CMS, we can leave the content to the content writers and simple templates allows them to plug content into the template and publish it themselves. They can easily insert links, texts styles, alt tags, title tags and meta tags.

Optimize the pages: Many CMS allows us to optimize our title, content depth, keywords, meta descriptions and calls to action all in single text fields.

In simple words, we can say that future is in our sights whether it is 360 degree videos shared on Facebook or people wearing oversized headsets.

Here are a few ways through which VR is changing web design:

VR is moving to the browser: Until now, there is a necessity of headset and an app of some sort in order to access any kind of VR content online but it is all changing with a number of quality web browsers which are working on the support for web VR. Now there is open standard due to which it is possible to experience VR in our browser. Now the ordinary web visitors will be able to just click a button and start interacting with VR content without any troubling with the downloads.

It is easier to create content: While there is a huge production of headsets which is making it easier for consumers to access the VR content on the web, on the other hand, there is an increasing availability of open source libraries due to which content creation is getting easier.

E-Commerce: As we know that there is a sheer number of ecommerce websites out there but the surprising fact is that they all are following a similar design which means they can get easily lost. Recently a traditional layout has been developed in order to make sites with their own personality and VR in online shopping could be very important in moving forward.

Life Cycle of UX

Tags : 

The concept of user experience is broad and any person who wants to practice UX design should possess skills in multiple fields. As a UX Designer, we have a range of techniques available to us and it is up to us which of these techniques we want to choose for appropriation.

As its core, the UX process consists of these following phases:

Strategy: Strategy is really important from the outset as it contributes to articulating the brand, guiding the principles and long-term vision of an organization. It will be very helpful in shaping the goals of our organization as well as concentrates on what our organization is hoping to achieve with this project and ways for its success for measurement.

Research: This phase can be variable between the projects. Difficult projects will comprise the significant user along with competitor activities rather small startup websites may avoid these research activities other than some informal interviews and a survey. The research phase is really essential to create an informed user experience.

Analysis: The main focus of the analysis is to draw insights from data collected at the time of the research phase. It includes capturing, organizing and making the inferences from the factors which can help UX designers in understanding to the reasons for its importance. Communicating the designer’s understanding back to the users will be helpful in confirming any assumptions which are being made are valid.

Design: This phase of the UX project is both collaborative and iterative. In collaborative terms, it involves input and ideas from different people while in iterative, it cycles back upon itself for validating ideas and assumptions. The main goal of the design phase is to put ideas in front of users, get back their feedback and refine them along with repeating. We can represent these with paper prototypes, branding or visual details.

Production: It is the place where high fidelity design is fleshed out, content along with digital assets are created as well as high fidelity version of the product is validated with the stakeholders and end users through the user testing sessions. In this, the role of UX designer shifts from creating and validating the ideas to collaborating with developers for guiding and champion the vision.

Black hat SEO versus white hat SEO

Tags : 

Now we will see the difference between black hat SEO and white hat SEO.
Black hat SEO

Making use of unrelated keyword: in this one adds the keyword that is not related to your content or that has no meaning with your content. These types of content are red-flagged because it looks unnatural. For example suppose you are working on a site which is selling online Ayurveda medicines but in content you have written something irrelevant like micheal Jackson the great dancer, then sentence does not go with your website service, it shows deliberately you are misusing keywords to endorse ay celebrity for their publicilty. It is counted in black hat SEO. It is a big no-no.

Automation of content: anywhere, either in the body text or comment box. A bot comment can be recognized very easily, it may contain two-three keywords that will automatically help in URL ranking.

Creation of doorway pages: these pages are created fake. And these pages are stuffed with keywords so that search engines may find them. In short these are the fake pages or dummy pages which are created especially for keyword stuffing.

Cloak: it presents the completely different content. Its goal is to display it on search engine.
Links and text invisible: it is one of the most common black hat techniques, in which content and links are hidden in order to improve ranking. One way is to do by writing white color text on white background or writing links in very small text so that nobody can see it. These all techniques are black hat and they are risky too.

White hat SEO

Quality of content: creating a high quality content and valuable content by also sharing content and URL links. You must keep in mind that your content should be original, unique and not matching with contents of other website. There should not be any grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes.

Using effective keywords: keywords should be effective, and it should be used correctly. Keyword on which people searches more should be focused first. As effective keywords are searched by most of the people on search engines. It is the best strategy to increase ranking of your website in a correct manner.
