Message 1 of 4: Peter Mayes on 10/07/2012
Hi all

I have now installed a comprehensive web analytics application on our server and have been monitoring the stats on the site again.

Things are looking good with an expectation of 10,000 human visitors per month and over this number of search engine robots.

I started to look at the search engine referrals and noticed that in the past couple of weeks we have had over 180 referrals from Google UK but on 7 from Yahoo UK. I wondered whether the site was better set up for Google so it did a couple of tests on our main search criteria. The results are interesting.

Freelance trainers
Google = 2nd position
Yahoo = 4th and 9th positiion

Business trainers
Google = 1st position
Yahoo = 1st position

Management trainers
Google = 2nd, 3rd and 7th (Find Management Trainers site)
Yahoo = 1st (Find Management Trainers site), 12th.

This would suggest that TrainerBase is as well suited to Yahoo as it is to Google, its just that more relevant people (those that decide to come to the site) use Google.

Not bad positions are they:)
