Reasons for the success of 3 posts, and failure of 3 other

using Google Analytics

I decrypt the reasons that made popular these three posts

I take as an example the blog site www.daedalus-architecture.fr, which I created there 11 months. It’s a matter of SEO in France.

3 posts successful landing pages - Google Analytics

3 posts successful landing pages – Google Analytics

As you can see here on the right, after the home page, the 3 most visited site pages are pages of the blog.

Number two, the most luxurious villa in the world – 183 visits in the last 30 days: reasons for this success

Although keywords as “most luxurious villa in the world” are subject to a dire competition because they are highly sought after, the fact of ranking in 16th position on Google for “villa plus luxueuse du monde” (most luxurious villa in the world) did the trick. If we search “villa moderne plus luxueuse du monde” (more luxurious modern villa in the world), the same page is second on Google.

Summarizing the reasons for the success of this post:

I chose a keyword as “most luxurious modern villa in the world”, often forgotten by competitors who write about “luxury villas” for short. In this way I could win second place.

I have enriched the post with 20 luxurious villas well optimized images: in the search results for “most luxurious modern villa in the world”, the first image displayed by Google is one of its 20 images.

Reasons for the success of the number three, mini bike caravan, 147 visits in the last 30 days

The enthusiasm of the public for biking tourism is great. I just o very well this post ptimized, I was the first to talk about this on the Francophone web, and bingo, this post ranks first for “mini caravane pour vélo” (mini bike caravan). Obviously, I added well optimized images.

Reasons for the success of number four, portable mini home – 118 visits in the last 30 days

It ranks on Google first page for “mini maison portable” (portable mini home). How did it get there? While the craze for mini homes is strong in France, there are not many manufacturers or websites dedicated to the mini house. Easy to conquer the first page, moreover, with two images of the same post at the top of search results.

I now analyze the reasons for the failure of these three tickets

3 posts fiasco pages - Google Analytics

3 posts fiasco pages – Google Analytics

Three visits in the last 30 days for these three tickets. First, Coelux window. It ranks on Google first page for “fenêtre Coelux” (Coelux window), even with four images. Nevertheless, nobody searches “fenêtre Coelux”. I should have thought of keywords as “high-tech window”, or otherwise. Just added them.

Number 74, Passive house

there are so many web pages on the argument that it is impossible to take advantage of the traffic coming from King Google, ranking at least in the top 20.

Number 75, how to best sell one’s house

Too many excellent websites are dedicated to real estate sales. Unable to conquer the first pages of Google with a blog post like this for the most successful keywords related to selling a home.

Conclusion: ranking in Google brings 90% of visits to my posts

And it suits me well. I like the consistency, relevance and semantic intelligence of Google. I like the way it ranks my post. If I produce quality content and marketing strategies Google will reward me. Otherwise, it penalizes me. I play the game, hoping that it will last.
