One of our valued members reported this morning that a whopping 18.82% of their Stage traffic is coming from Google searches.
For our newer members we'll explain this a bit more. When you make a Stage, the first step is to submit it on Facebook, Twitter, and whatever other social networks you like. As people begin sharing your Stage with their friends you begin receiving viral traffic as viewers click on the ads in your Stage.
In recent weeks people are noticing another source of traffic resulting from their Stages coming up in Google searches. This is largely due to the title and description of their Stage matching the search terms being typed by the person using Google.
So if I have a Stage about dogs and someone is doing a Google search about dogs my Stage could appear as a search result. If the person selects my Stage out of the other search results then I just got free traffic from Google.
A final comment is you can use Google Analytics to track where traffic is hitting your Stage from. This is how you can tell what percentage of traffic is coming from Google. With this in mind lets read what our member reported:
This is invaluable information, and it's being provided to you by one of your very own Team members who is out there making it happen with Staged.com.
To think that everyone here at Staged.com has the ability to capture as much Google and other top search engine real estate as we want is mind blowing. But there is one catch to EVERYTHING and it is coming up a lot more often now that more and more people are discovering just how effective Staged.com is.
The catch is: you can only control your banner ads and text ads and seize this viral traffic opportunity for yourself with an upgraded Staged account. With a free account you can have a blast making and sharing Stages, but with an upgraded account you can plan on adding one more feature - Making Money!
