Do You Know What Your Website Visitors Are REALLY Looking For?

Written By: Jim Daniels

Through the last few years I’ve tried many solutions to a
nagging problem… how to let visitors easily search through
my website. Each time I’d try a new service, script or
software program I’d run into a problem. Either the
searching was too slow, the search engine results were lousy
or it just plain didn’t work.

After lots of trial and error, I finally found a site search
tool that is head and shoulders above all others. Actually,
it is more than that. It can be used as a powerful marketing
tool as well. I now know “exactly” what my website visitors
are looking for and can present my own solutions to them in
a unique manner.

o First, the tool:

I’d like to invite you to try the new search tool at my home
page… http://www.bizweb2000.com – what you’ll find is a
slick, independently hosted search solution for corporations,
small businesses, and individual web developers… Atomz.

With Atomz, absolutely anyone can quickly and easily add a
powerful search engine to any site, and the service is
free for sites with less than 500 pages.

I got my own Atomz search engine 100% up and running in less
than an hour. And while I still have a little “tweaking” to
do, the engine up at my site now is FAR better than every
solution I tried in the past. I spent zero dollars and
almost zero time getting it working.

Actually, to put the Atomz engine at your site, there’s
nothing to do but fill out a few forms, decide what areas
you want your visitors to be able to search through and turn
Atomz loose to index your pages. In seconds it spits out
html code for you. You paste the code into any page you want
a search form on, then upload the page to your site. Bingo.

You now have a powerful search engine on your site and your
visitors will love you for it! What’s nice is that there are
no annoying ad banners shown with your search results, just
a small “Powered by Atomz.com” graphic.

But there’s really much more to Atomz than this. It holds a
unique marketing value for savvy web marketers…

o The Atomz fun starts…

As your visitors search your site, Atomz logs what they
enter and then creates reports for you by day, week, and
month. These reports tell you what visitors are looking for
at your site. You can use this information to improve your
site or to control the search results for your visitors.

Here’s an example…
The top 15 searches at my site this week were:

search engines
marketing plan
jim daniels
make money
direct email
domain registration
affiliate program
free publicity
shania twain

So what does this report tell me? Well for starters, the
first few search words show me that my articles on search
engines and marketing maintenance have brought lots of
visitors to my site. That’s still something that lots of web
marketers are interested in learning about so I’ll write
more about my experiences in those areas.

Next, many of the terms searched on were exact matches to
the keywords I bid on at goto.com. Specifically, “make
money” and “direct email” are keywords I just increased my
bids on at goto. It was nice to see those efforts bring
immediate visitors. It’s also great to give these surfers a
quick search tool so that can find exactly what they’re
looking for at my site as soon as they arrive.

Next, the searches on domain registration prompted me to
move my report on “how to select and register a domain name
for your business”, to the top of that results page. All
searches on domain registration now indirectly lead visitors
to my “domain name wizard” and then onto my domain name
registration services. Hey, this Atomz search tool is a
great little marketing tool!

Controlling the search results at your site is a powerful
way to market specific products and services. Atomz realizes
this and offers their “Target Meta Tag”, an exclusive
Atomz.com search feature. You simply list words in the
“content” part of the “target meta tag” and the page is
promoted to the top of your search results ranking. You can
also use your keywords tag to influence your Atomz.com
Search results.

As I work my way down my first Atomz report, I not only
learn what my visitors are searching for, I learn what my
site is lacking. Over time, these reports will be invaluable
to me and my efforts to help my website visitors and
e-newsletter subscribers who return to my site.

And oh yeah, I learned one more thing from my Atomz
reports… I may need to do a little research on this
Shania Twain person. ;-)
