If you happen to follow Yahoo Finance, you may have seen a pretty scary article yesterday:
Google Has Gone 'Dark': The search giant just ended a bunch of free data and people are freaking out
What is Google doing?
Normally you could go into your analytics and learn exactly which keywords people used to come into your site. You could tell which keywords had the best conversions.
Google is now encrypting all organic searches. They will no longer show you which keywords your visitors used to find your website.
Can you show me what it looks like in my analytics?
Absolutely! Go to the bottom of this post and I show you how to find the encrypted search in Google and Yahoo Analytics.
So all my keyword data from Google is gone?
Google will still provide keywords to those who pay but, you only get to see the data from traffic you paid for. You still won't see your organic search traffic.
Where can I learn more?
I would recommend looking at our current newsletter. I put in some really great links that I think you will find helpful.
Is there another way of finding which keywords people used to find my site?
There are several options available for a work around. I'll be providing more links during our show today but, these will get you started.
How can I learn more?
I look forward to seeing you soon!
P.S. A lot of our customers want more information on our new Speed Service. We are releasing the new service to our Consulting and Group Coaching members first, our waiting list second, and then all of 1 Choice Customers.
Email me back if you want to be put on the waiting list :)
Here is the analytics info!
In Google Analytics, click keywords under acquisition
You will see the number 1 spot is (not provided) for almost 90%.
Now let's check Yahoo Analytics. First change the reporting period to the month of October and click apply.
We see our top 10 keywords and out of 505 First Time Visits, Google encrypted 494 of them.
