Google Analytics – How Dumb can I be ?

August 1, 2009 10:46 pm

I have been checking the statistics in Google Analytics  for one of my domain names for the past 6 months and noticed that almost 95% of traffic are direct traffic. But I had never bothered to find out why there is no other traffic. Today also, as usual I visited the Analytics reports for this domain and was staring at the ‘Traffic Sources’ report when something hit me in the head – The Eureka Moment (thankfully I was wearing my shorts else, my a couple of my neighbors might have fainted).

I went to my Google Webmaster tools and checked for this domain and then I see this warning.

How stupid of me. I had never checked webmaster tools for this particular site (for whatever reasons). It had never crossed my mind.

All I had to do now is to submit a reconsideration request which I did dutifully.

Google Analytics + Webmaster Tools = Identify problems with your traffic.

After a long time,  I am happy that I wrote a good post (hopefully)
