Hi,

I was wondering if anyone else had crafted up a similar tool to this, it's a screen dump of my "Realtime Monitor":



Each page view inserts a few values into a database, than I use some JavaScript to access a script that queries the database and refreshes my screen every few seconds.

Ii takes Google referrers to bits to work out the keywords the visitor used and which page they saw us on, it really gives me an insight into what is happening on my site this very moment.

That picture above just happened to show a pretty busy minute, I want every minute to be at least that busy!

The seconds column in there shows how long it took the server to do what it needed so I can find and fix slow downs.

I've already started making use of the data being collected by getting a list of the thousand most popular search terms to our site, I've added these links in rotation in place of ads on some of the other sites I run. I know we rank for those terms already but ranking higher would be nice!

I know I can get aggregated data from WMT but I prefer this as it lets me see what is happening when it's happening.

If I make the script available would anyone want a copy at no charge?

Randy's GRE tool does something similar while also showing where the URL ranked when it was clicked. It's only Google traffic though, not all referrals.

Thanks Jill, I'd seen that before and considered it a bit too comprehensive for what I wanted but having just seen how it extracts the ranking data from the referring url I'm inspired to put a bit more work into mine!

@Chris - Cool!

A couple of explodes later and hehe!



Till today I didn't know they were passing that data, I knew that /url? was a redirect but hadn't taken the time to study the variables in the URL itself.

I'm chuffed to have found that little gem!

This seems like a nice idea.

Where's Randy's tool? I assume Ill find it on here if I search for it?

Do your everyday web analytics tools cover this - e.g. Omniture,etc.? Or is this something even the web analytics companies havent really thought of/implemented?

Randy's Google Rank Extractor / GRE Tool:

Info: http://www.randycullom.com/gre/
Demo: http://www.randycull...k-extractor.php

I had to go off on a search of the boards, narrowed it down and found it after a few queries.

It's been a little bit of an inspiration.

I'm now also logging if the visitor is a mobile device or not as my site shows either a PC or mobile based template. It's returning this plus ranking info when available as well as being able to narrow it down to the following:

All Google user agents
All Google searches
All searches with ranking info
All Google .com + ranking info
All Google UK + ranking info
All Google UK (UK Only) + ranking info

I'm logging everything and as of a moment ago there are 5,576,314 rows of logging data stored in MySQL. Ouch.

Having the data is one thing. What to do with it to get the best effect and highest sustained rankings is a different thing all together!

Tips on that one are most welcome!?!?!?
