In episode 113 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about Random Browsing and other ways of using CrowdSearch to improve one’s site traffic.
The exact question was:
Happy New Year guys! I have started using crowdsearch and wanted your opinion on a few ways I am using it. 1) I like Random Browsing on some of the searches. But with Random Browsing on, I get a lot of instances of 15-30 seconds of time on any one page. Ex: 7-8 page views in 4 minutes. Do you use it?
2) I have a couple campaigns that start at WP (or tumblr) that go to the Google Plus posts page then click on a post going to my website. (I vary what post is clicked). Good idea?
3) When I see a link show up in Search Console, I add that to Crowdsearch. Ex: Last month I had 5 visits from an unknown Pinterest board show in Analytics. I checked and it is a good board themed for my industry. So I added a campaign for a few searches a month coming from that Pinterest board. Is this a good type of thing to do?
