Website Promotion And Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Website Activity Tracking

Website SEO: Website Activity TrackingThis page demonstrates the power of Visual Basic to store, retrieve and display Visitor activity on a Website – the data includes the Country, Browser, Search Engine, etc.

All the colourful charts are dynamically constructed using ASP.Net and Visual Basic, Microsoft's Chart software, and data previously collected and saved to a SQL Server database.

This page summarises the main factors vital for Website Search Engine optimisation. It replaces the need for the Google Analytics.

The dominance of the Microsoft products (like Internet Explorer or Windows) does not truly reflect worldwide usage. This Website is dedicated to Microsoft's Visual Basic and Microsoft Access – so visitors to this site are more likely to be using Microsoft products. However, the statistics produced do present a realistic picture.

Background Asynchronous Processing

Asynchronous Processing allows each Web page to be displayed immediately, while data collection and data storage to an SQL Server database takes place in the background.

Despite the amount of work being done by the server in accessing the database and creating the charts, the response time is good. The wonders of ASP.Net and Visual Basic Programming!

Website Visitor Traffic Information

Website statistics with detailed visitor information that is readily available is saved to a SQL Server database. The following is then displayed:

  • The most popular pages viewed by the visitor
  • The referral links
  • The daily number of visitors
  • The visitor's country
  • The Operating System
  • The Browser that was used

By default the statistics relate only to Australia. Uncheck the check-box to see all countries.

Recent Visitor Website Listing

The following analysis shows the last ten visitors that viewed this Website and who looked further than just one page. Note that due to Google using an Encrypted Search, Keyword analyses are now no longer available. This was partly to prevent government snooping, but mostly to encourage Website designers to concentrate on content, rather than on Keyword stuffing.

The Visitor Website Landing Pages

The landing page is the page that a visitor selects as the result of a search engine link. Almost every page on a Website could be a Landing Page. The Landing Page is important, as any visual improvement can increase the conversion rate, without requiring further Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

The most popular Landing Page is usually the Home page. This needs the most attention. But the infrequently accessed pages also require Landing Page Optimisation. A chance visit could be turned into a sales conversion. All potential landing pages should be attractive – not just the home page. The goal is to inform and invite the visitor to look further.
