I had breakfast with Lou Rosenfeld today, and during a conversation that inevitably wandered into search analytics, Lou wondered if there was a single article, talk, or interview that had sent the most eyeballs my way in recent years.
This was all the excuse I needed for some late summer procrastination, so I dove into Google Analytics for a quick swim.
On the Semantic Studios side, my Information Architecture 3.0 article blows the competition out of the water. Nothing draws attention like a fracas.
Beyond that, my Semantic Studios traffic is fairly steady, with a substantial portion driven by search engines, thanks to high rankings on such queries as authority, social network analysis, and user experience.
And, in gray, trailing into the distance, is the long tail of the lemur, sporting such uncommon queries as "swedish marketing blunders" and "yosemite beef jerky."
Heh. I'm suddenly feeling very hungry. Wow, it's getting late. I've spent the whole day on analytics. Thanks a lot Lou!
