Traffic / How I recorded user behaviour on my competitor’s websites
« on: August 21, 2018, 12:47:08 PM »

Here’s what I did:

User lands on my page (referrer: google)
When they hit “back” button in Chrome, JS sends them to my copy of SERP
Click on any competitor takes them to my mirror of competitor’s site (noindex)
Now I generate heatmaps, scrollmaps, records screen interactions and typing.

Sad news.  Met him just once I think at the Citie of Yorke.  Very interesting and engaging guy.

The UK is in the EU with opt-outs.
But the UK wants out of the EU with opt-ins.

That's the single best argument I've heard to date for Brexit

I wonder if there is something in the nature of the Airbnb product that leads to a greater number of visits per conversion.

For a flight - its typically a very easy, functional transaction (airline of choice or meta search)

For a hotel - a bit of bouncing between the OTA and tripadvisor, maybe having started at or used a meta search at some point

For Airbnb - a load of research on the properties available, locations, owner, reading the reviews, etc.  Message the owner, wait for response, negotiate a price, wait for a response, book it, revisit closer to travel time to get the details etc.

It keeps pulling you back in

Any sign of manual actions in Search Console?

Would have thought not showing for name is either some sort of penalty or Google to accepting the new site theme.

Any point during the sites previous life where you can see traffic disappearing in Searchmetrics or the like?

I'm kinda jealous.

I feel the same.

Have been debating posting this, but switch the name on the paper from Google to anything else and the general reaction may be all together much more positive.

That said, I've just been brainwashed for 3 days at Google i/o and may have been assimilated.

someone recommended to me in another thread here.  They have a reverse analytics look up too.

I would have thought so.  Its just an H1 with some additional, non-conflicting nested tags, right?

I wonder if Google might just drop tables for voice queries and keep them when they think users are happy to consume them... desktop ok, mobiles maybe, auraly no

Thank you for adding to my vocabulary.  That is a new one on me.

...and sorry that your dad's trip was disrupted.

It's the little things coming along with it that will add up, like this

Related, we recently announced that beginning in July 2018, content that is slow-loading may perform less well for both desktop and mobile searchers.

This exactly.

We had a major competitor take a substantial hit in the core update around 10 March.  They do most things right but have a slow site compared with the other leaders in the space and the winners in that update.  So we're speculating speed has become a bigger factor already this month.
