We finally made it to April, folks! And I say this with more joy than usual, since March was acrazy month for SEO. If you made it through March without an email from Google or a penalty from Google or a drop in Google organic search traffic due to Panda updates or paidlink-related issues, you should give yourself a high five.

If your site has a Frequently Asked Questions page or a Knowledge Base, however, analytics can also help you to understand your customers’ most common problems. Are they searching for product manuals? Perhaps your documentation isn’t in plain enough English. Discounts and special offers? Maybe you need to advertise your deals more visibly.
