Reasons why I really like the keywords feature on the statistics -

I cannot resist skimming through them to see if there are any new ones there. I like the informal way that people word things and sometimes even seem to be asking questions.

When I write a sales type of Wizzley article  I find it easier to imagine I am solving a problem for someone who is searching for something online. The introduction of the keywords list helps me to see 'how well I did' in anticipating what the searcher might have typed in as a search query. It is also helpful as sometimes a related topic appears and I can add it to the article or even write a new article about the subject/query. 

Not sure that is how you are meant to use those search result keywords or how others use the results they see in the stats. but for me it is inspiring. BTW - when I occasionally work as part of team I tend to be the problem solver so this may explain my approach to writing articles.

Any other ways you find this feature useful?

I totally agree. I wrote a new article from one of the keywords and have gone back and updated a few others. It's great to see what people are looking for, but I have the impulse to click on them and see what comes up...ha...doesn't quite work that way....

I don't have the patience to do keyword research, but it looks like I'm nailing it anyway. Good to know.

I also find that feature very helpful.  Sometimes I have overlooked something that I need to add to the article.

I had this interesting experience on our German sister site,

A couple of years ago, I had written an article about "Quinoa - the Miracle Grain". Now I noticed that visitors find me by searching for "buy quinoa", although I've not used that phrase anywhere in my article.

I adjusted the title to reflect this phrase, and added it a few times to the text. I also added an Amazon module with quinoa packages.

After a few days, my ranking had improved from #4 to #2. Apparently, the competition made adjustments as well, and I fell back to #3. But this small update has brought me a (small) bunch of more traffic.

Yes, I love being able to check keywords people are using to find my articles. As I have learned from others, this can give us ideas for additional modules or even additional articles to write based on what people are looking for.

Something else I would like to see added to the stats are click-outs. It would be very helpful to see, not only what amazon products people are clicking on, but also what other links we put on the article that people are curious enough to click. This can also help up focus our content more.

fellow article migrators have you noticed in the keyword list people searching for your articles by key phrases (i.e. only found on your article such as a title or clip from a title) from your old article? I've seen a bunch of peices of titles and key points in articles I've moved over being searched for (likely by people who bookmarked it and now can't get to it)... kinda cool to see that!

Sheri it would be useful to have that here as it would give us more information to work with.

In the meantime there is another way to see some of our out-clicks. You may already know this but I will add it for anyone who has not yet discovered it. 

If you are on the VigLink site - there is a part of that site where you can see where the click outs go. 

It lists the affiliated clicks separately to the out clicks as it seems to be able to track both types.

I will try to explain how to find these out click stats. on VigLink  -

  1. On VigLink dashboard - (the one you land on).
  2. Under the weekly column - where they give you a number for your clicks -  you then need to click there.
  3. .A message may appear that says - select a source. You need to select Parent sites.
  4. You will see the page change to reveal different headings for that week.
  5. It will give you a number for the out clicks - (grey in color).
  6. Scroll down and there are lots of facts and figures there including some info. about out clicks and which clicks have been affiliated by VigLink. I can see on these stats. what has been sold or viewed. AllPosters is one of the sites that shows up, ebay and other outbound things like videos/twitter etc.

You do not need to re-do the whole process to see different weeks us the top left and right weekly button for the weeks.

Hope someone finds this useful - and if not well I tried to be helpful. 

I need a breakfast after writing that.
