Poor number of key phrases that are registered/recognised by Google

Hi! 

 

I was wondering if I had a wrong code implementation in my website (www.pura-aventura.com) and blog (www.pura-aventura.com/blog which works separately with Wordpress). Since we work hard to create unique and interesting content, I've recently noticed (using Ahref) that our number of key phrases that are registered or recognised by Google are very low in comparison with our competitors - which penalize us from appearing in first result pages.

 

I don't believe our vocabulary is that crap! It must be something else...

 

Could you please help me?

Hi :-)
Is there any particular reason the blog is using a different Property/Tracking ID to the rest of the main website?

Hi :-)

Errm well it helps us differentiate the traffic on both site as well as send our different sitemaps to the Search Console (as our blog is on Wordpress). I always thought this was the right thing to do... Do you think that could also explain some weird numbers we have on Analytics too (such as not reporting all the traffic from Facebook to our blog)?

Marked as Best Answer.

Gday :-)
Ok first up.. use of GA has no baring on your site getting crawled and indexed by organic search (Google or otherwise)

If it were me.. I would have a single Property, and a View tracking the whole domain without any filters
I would then also have another View with a filter to track just the /blog and its related pages.
The main domain www and non-www would be verified in Search Console with www chosen as the preferred domain
and then the www one in the search console would be linked to the relevant Property in GA

And yes, having two separate properties can produce funkiness in data a some traffic will be getting reported as direct
rather than referral or organic due to different properties being used.

 

eta.. for help with SEO and Search Console re submission of Sitemaps etc,

best place to ask is on the webmaster central help forum

Hi :-)

Thanks a lot, this is extremely useful! Just one last question: does the use of HTTPS can affect something on Analytics? As we've changed this recently, we now have one property using HTTPS and an old one using HTTP. To be honest we got pretty mixed up since the HTTPS integration :-O

Thanks a lot for your help, really appreciate!

Laurent

Hello :-)

Something in how the redirect is setup for the https is funky

https://pura-aventura.com/ does not redirect to https://www.pura-aventura.com/
It gives an error - This site can’t be reached ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

In analytics, the website url in the Property and View Setting pages should
reflect that it is https via the dropdown before the field for the domain name

and then this should be linked to the verified https://www.pura-aventura.com
site in search console

Hey! :-)

What a sharp eye you have! I've never noticed this, I'll talk to our webmaster and fix the analytics thing myself.

Thanks a lot again for your precious help!
