This is a discussion on Patientenfragen.net - vBSEO Case Study within the Analysis: Traffic & SERPS forums, part of the vBulletin SEO Discussion category; *update*...
I also added graphs for SE Listings and updated the organic SE Traffic graphs and expanded them starting at the beginning of 2007
Google did a nice jump as did MSN.
My Adsense earnings are climbing 30-60$ each month.
I like that too
The nice thing is, in google I list very high with a whole variety of interesting and sometimes even popular keywords.
I missed it last week, sorry
Interesting study, I'm considering vBSEO and other SEO solutions for vBulletin to buy. Also I have my own solution to get red of duplicated content in vBulletin. I have concerns about the performance, and I'm waiting to see the results of non-encrypted version of vBSEO. I don't believe in rewriting URLs, nor keywords in URLs (I believe in eliminating duplicated content), but such a study makes you a believer. and you may go to the heaven! Thanks for your good presentation.
So, I have just updated the statistic graphics
I decided to put on another graph for my adsense earnings.
I changed the scale of the Y-achsis to an odd interval and removed the numbers so you can't guess the income, but I think you will get the idea
Does the arrow point to the moment when you installed vBSEO?
In this case we can't say that vBSEO was the reason behind Google Adsense benefits, that's because there is already an increment (at the same average) in the benefits before few months (3 or 4).
Your case study proves that vBSEO may increase the indexed pages in search engines. and that will increase your visitors.
I'll try to do something similar to your study on my forum.
Yes, so far I also don't see a big impact regarding search engine listings and adsense earnings that can be credited to vBSEO. However that was not my initial intention anyway for buying vBSEO.
I wanted a mod rewrite hack that works 100% and is absolutely customizable.
And I got what I wanted and I am totally happy with it.
All the rest would be a bonus.
another update. A little late, sorry
I have updated my study again.
Sorry for the missing month, but I was very busy.
Maybe I keep the monthly interval from now on, or a 2weeks interval because I don't think that weekly fluctuations are very interesting.
I have also updated all graphs and added AOL to the organic traffic
New update including graphs
