Chester Shitty FC – Nowhere to be seen in Google

without comments

With Chester City FC being my local team I usually drop by their website to see the latest news and have a laugh.  They are a poorly run football club and with gates around 1,500 are going nowhere fast.  Looks like their official website may have a Google penalty – it is in the index with a page rank of 6 – but it is not the top 100 resultrs for the term ‘chester city fc’.  I’ll have a bet the other 91 football league clubs websites appear 1st for their brand term.  Just another example of cock up Terry Smith style by Chester.  Think you need some SEO guys.

Visitors up in January?

without comments

Having a look at the Google Analytics stats for all the clients today and noticed average visitors are up over 50% on December.  Would love to claim this as a result of my work but that isn’t true.  I was on holiday for 5 weeks in December traveling around South East Asia.  I can’t remember stats from January ’08 as I was traveling in Australia at the time.

One client’s stats are up by 500%!!!! He was quite happy!!  On average their up between 20% – 50% which is great but I think a lot of it maybe to do with the cold weather and the long Xmas break.  Anyone seen the same or got some thoughts on this?
