hmmmm

Okay, question.

Sometimes people write posts about how they did a search to see how people found their blog. Meaning, if they were googling, they came up with a phrase that led someone to their blog. How do you do this?

I'm a little slow :)

I wonder this too!

I use Google Analytics. It tracks everything you could ever want to know about your blog :) And, it's free!

I use Google Analytics too.

Sitemeter will also show you the most recent 100 hits, but it's more laborious to pull the search terms than it is with Google Analytics.

Of course, if you sign up for Google Analytics, it will only start tracking today (or whenever you sign up), so you'll have to wait a while to get enough data.

If you have wordpress it is in your blog stats section...it is really funny.

I think it's different for wordpress users. In my dashboard, under "statistics," I have a whole list of search terms; and I can break it down by day/month/all-time. If Blogger doesn't have that, I have no idea.

I was never able to figure out Google Analytics or sitemeter - but I use Stat Counter (statcounter.com). Seeing what searches your readers used to access your site is one of the options.

hmm, I don't know. But now that I read Katie's post I'm going to have to try that analytics thing!!
