Introduction

How many visitors will come to your site? Whether they will find own searching things? Whether your visitors will bring benefit for you or only will consume your bandwidth and resources of your server? Every webmaster or site owner are interested by these questions.

Answers to these questions almost always depend on search phrases for which your site is optimized. Fortunately for webmasters, people frequently think similar. And one lucky search phrase may bring to you much more visitors, than the most expensive advertising company.

But how to find such phrases? Your web server log files contains hundreds, thousands, or even tens of thousands different search phrases used by your visitors. How to find in this sea of sand those grains of gold which will make your site popular, will keep your visitors pleased, and will make you successful? Golden Phrases will help you to find out answer to these question!

Overview

Golden Phrases is an web server access log files analyzing utility specialized to analyze search phrases. It scan specified log files, retrieve all search phrases from them, gather the statistics of using the phrases, determine position of your site on search engines for every phrase and estimate the perspectivity of every phrase. Let's consider in details how it work:

Golden Phrases assume that every line of log file can contain one referer from search phrase. Therefore, it try to apply the search engine specific pattern for every line of log files. And if line has an string of chars matching with pattern it assume that this line has referring URL from search engine and try to extract the search phrase and other accompanying information from this line.

Because Golden Phrases do not make any assumptions of a format of a files, it's independent from format of log files, i.e. can properly handle log files with almost any format. Also it's very fast and can understand the compressed log files. For example, as you can see in screen shots, it parse the 67 compressed log files with summary length of more that 300 000 lines less than for 3 seconds with average rate 109 000 lines per second (on the Windows 2000 system with 900MHz Celeron CPU, 256Mbyte or RAM and 5400rpm HDD).

After retrieving all search phrases and and gathering their statistics, Golden Phrases use special formula to calculate the factor of perspectivity for every phrase. For calculation of this factor Golden Phrases takes into account the amount of hits for each phrase and current position of your site on search engine for this phrase. The more this factor, the more reasons to make the special optimization for this phrase.

You can note, that your current top search phrases has very low factor of perspectivity. But this is all right! These phrases is already working with full power and not requires your attention. Also note that perspectivity factor has absolutely abstract value. It only reflects relative perspectivity of the given phrase in comparison with others.

Click on the columns heading to sort the report by value of this parameter. Click again to sort in reverse order.

Click on the line to select it. Hold down Ctrl key and click on the lines to select several lines. Hold down Shift key and click on the start and end line to select the range of lines. So, all as usually in Windows environment :).
