on a site that i have no access to google analytics (GA)? I got lucky using a hot keyword and get 600 visitors a day to a page where I cannot install GA. I tried another keyword thats twice as hot, but got 3 visitors a day! The question is how I can reproduce the results of the high traffic? I looked in google keyword tools (GKT) and find related keywords and try to find the google ranking of the visited page. I got nothing other than a few that rank close to 200, which cannot explain the traffic source. I have read a few posts on BHW talking about how to cash in on google trends (GT). However i failed to make it work for me and i cannot understand how it could have worked for them. Google trends are so short lived that by the time one sees the keywords and posts an article, it's already "over the hill." the article/page has to be indexed by Google first. getting indexed is like shooting darts in the dark. My experience is that even on a PR7 site, it can take up to 1 day! (the fastest indexing in my experience is 15 minutes or so.) the trend keyword turns into trash after a few hours! Maybe I am missing some key points of those GT posts? Anybody that has had success with GT can give a pointer? The 2 questions are kind of related. thats why i put them in the same thread. So my questions are: 1, what am i missing in using GT? 2, how do i find traffic source without GA? anybody can help?
