Google Analytics Keyword Data – A Dangerous Precedent #seochat

On Thursday, October 27, 2011 Search Marketing Weekly will be hosting our weekly an #seochat on Twitter. And we’re doing something different!!!

Instead of 1 guest, we’ll have 3 guests talking about Google’s latest change to their Analytics data. This will be a 3-person panel talking about why Google made the change and what effects it may or may not have on SEO. Expect an exciting and informational evening!

New Format

Our guests this week will each have 4 tweets to answer the questions then they will have 5 minutes to reply and debate before we move on to the next question. And the questions are:

  1. What is the REAL reason for the Google’s removal of data for logged in users?
  2. How does/should this change affect your SEO strategy?
  3. What should SEOs be looking at in their analytics instead?
  4. Why is granular data important or dangerous to an SEO strategy?


#SeoChat starts at 7:00 pm Mountain Time (6:00 pm Pacific and 9:00 pm Eastern)
About 1 hour long

  1. With this kind of empowerment, it’s no wonder our reviewers think so highly of TOP SEO Software. A good SEO Software should have the following features. Later, search engines became more discriminating and downgraded keyword-stuffed websites, which meant that content writers resorted to a few “tricks” to embed a plethora of keywords, such as making them invisible to the reader, or at least to the search engine’s discriminatory functions: the engines would check for keywords in the usual fashion but would only check visible content for relevance.

  2. You need to be a part of a contest for one of the highest quality blogs on the
    net. I will highly recommend this website!

  3. I’ve read several just right stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting.

    I surprise hoow so much effort youu place tto create any
    such fantasstic informative website.
