How to Find the Google Searches That Led to You

After Monday’s post, I had a few people ask how to find the Google searches I was referring to. I thought a how-to post would be relevant.

However, I am no expert, and I only know Blogger. So for my readers who know more or use other blogging sites, I would love it if you would share your tips and suggestions in the comments.

And here we go: 

1. Starting from your Dashboard: Look for the heading “Stats” on the far right from “New Post.” I’ve highlighted in the picture below.

 2. On the Stats Page: Click on “More” next to the heading “Traffic Sources” on the middle right. I’ve highlighted it in the image below.

3. On the Traffic Sources Page: Look toward the bottom at “Search Keywords” and voila! There you are. Again, I’ve highlighted it in the image below.

There you are, nice and easy. And while you’re there, spend some time and take a look around. The information under the “Stats” tab is pretty interesting!

And there are other ways to do this, too. If you load a free stats counter through sites such as blogpatrol.com, they will also list keyword searches that led someone to your blog. Just follow their instructions for loading the counter.

Hopefully that was helpful for you. And if you know of other ways to do this, please share!
