What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is integral to a website’s success. You may have the best website in the world but if no one can find it, what’s the point?

“I had a beautiful bar in Maida Vale but hardly any customers. Each week was a struggle.”

Julia Duarte’s Story

Seven years ago I purchased the W9 Bar in Maida Vale. It was a small local bar which had huge potential. Maida Vale had loads of pubs but nowhere relaxing and intimate for couples or cocktail lovers. I decided to completely gut the bar, redecorate and change the name to the LV Lounge. I opened the doors in 2011 and thought everyone would be coming to my bar. I was lucky to get more than 5 people a night.

As weeks turned into months and months turned into years, it’s fair to say I lost interest. I didn’t know what to do. I knew it was a great bar. I knew we served amazing drinks. But still, most nights were empty. I knew I had to do something.

I Was About To Lose My Business

A few regular customers had mentioned the importance of Google, Yelp, TripAdvisor, Facebook – the list goes on. I didn’t know where to start. I called a few companies who offer SEO services and ended up using The App Designer for one reason alone. They said, “we categorically cannot promise we’ll get you to the home page of Google but we will do everything possible to get you there.” Every other company was promising the top position within a week and even I know it’s not that easy.

Google Saved ME

Within 3 months, I had more and more people coming through the door.

Go to Google. Type in Cocktail Bar West London and I come up. This is what saved my business.

I couldn’t get over how many people use Google and Google Maps to plan a night out. I didn’t realise how important the behind the scenes of a website were until the bar started filling up every night of the week.

I wish I had done this from day one; it’s fair to say I’ve missed around £1m on lost business over the last few years.

Google Analytics

__utma Cookie
A persistent cookie - remains on a computer, unless it expires or the cookie cache is cleared. It tracks visitors. Metrics associated with the Google __utma cookie include: first visit (unique visit), last visit (returning visit). This also includes Days and Visits to purchase calculations which afford ecommerce websites with data intelligence around purchasing sales funnels.

__utmb Cookie & __utmc Cookie
These cookies work in tandem to calculate visit length. Google __utmb cookie demarks the exact arrival time, then Google __utmc registers the precise exit time of the user.

Because __utmb counts entrance visits, it is a session cookie, and expires at the end of the session, e.g. when the user leaves the page. A timestamp of 30 minutes must pass before Google cookie __utmc expires. Given__utmc cannot tell if a browser or website session ends. Therefore, if no new page view is recorded in 30 minutes the cookie is expired.

This is a standard 'grace period' in web analytics. Ominture and WebTrends among many others follow the same procedure.

__utmz Cookie
Cookie __utmz monitors the HTTP Referrer and notes where a visitor arrived from, with the referrer siloed into type (Search engine (organic or cpc), direct, social and unaccounted). From the HTTP Referrer the __utmz Cookie also registers, what keyword generated the visit plus geolocation data.

This cookie lasts six months. In tracking terms this Cookie is perhaps the most important as it will tell you about your traffic and help with conversion information such as what source / medium / keyword to attribute for a Goal Conversion.

__utmv Cookie
Google __utmv Cookie lasts "forever". It is a persistant cookie. It is used for segmentation, data experimentation and the __utmv works hand in hand with the __utmz cookie to improve cookie targeting capabilities.
