1D Back on Top – Tickifieds Top 10

Beyonce The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour

Beyonce surges this week to #2 on the Tickifieds Top 10 after announcing her plans to tour in 2013.

Although much of the country was buried in the snow this past week, the hint of spring is in the air as more artists announced plans for summer tours and festival lineups are starting to leak out.  However, this past week has been all about Beyonce as demand for tickets to her 2013 The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour is particularly strong.   Although they just missed list, a late surge by Pearl Jam is also of note.  Pearl Jam broke a box office record by being the fastest concert to sell out at Wrigley Field.  Considering Wrigley Field has hosted the likes of Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffet, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Roger Waters, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band, Rascal Flatts, Elton John, Billy Joel and the Police that is pretty impressive.

So, without further delay, here are your top events on Tickifieds.com this week….

Top Events Week 6, 2013

1.  One Direction

After a week knocked out of the spotlight by the Super Bowl, 1 Direction is back on top as the #1 event on Tickifieds.  Teenage girls are still eagerly looking for the highly coveted meet and greet passes.  However, they are quickly disappearing.  As always, you need only look at our list of the most popular ads to see just how dominant One Direction is…

4.  2013 NCAA Tournament

Interest in College Basketball is really starting to heat up as the fight for a berth in the 2013 NCAA Tournament heats up.  Although ticket sales won’t really heat up until Selection Sunday (3/17/2013), college basketball fans in opening round cities are already buying up seats.  This year the 1st Four will take place in Dayton and 2nd and 3rd Round games will be hosted in Salt Lake, Detroit (Auburn Hills), San Jose, Lexington, Kansas City,  Austin, and Philadelphia.

Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – Five in a Row for 1 D

One Direction TourOk, this is getting a bit ridiculous.  How many weeks in a row can One Direction absolutely dominate the search rankings?  Now that Justin Bieber has completely fallen off the map, there are no contenders in sight to knock 1D out of the top spot.  This week marks 5 in a row for the British boy band…is it time for college football yet?

A good sign that football is not too far away is the fact that WVU came in at #6 and the SF 49ers  came in at #8 on the list this week.  Other than those two sporting events, the results this week were dominated by music festival and country music.
1.  One Direction

I’m boycotting 1 Direction this week….

2. KattFest

The 2012 Katt Fest lineup includes Hinder, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, P.O.D., Red, Crossfade, and Drive A….no wonder this event comes in at #2 this week.

3.  Aerosmith

Steven Tyler is back on the road with Aerosmith.  Their concert at Milwaukee Summerfest on July 7th is particularly popular this week.

4.  Sugarland

The Sugarland 2012 In Your Hands Tour is kicking strong despite falling 2 spots from last week.  Sugarland should be a mainstay on the list.

5.  Eric Church

Eric Church keeps the country theme this week going strong.  His  2012 The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour has been a huge success.

6.  West Virginia

Fans in Morgantown are excited about the WVU Football season.  What’s not to like about a top #10 team moving into the Big 12?

7.  Country Throwdown

With a lineup that includes Gary Allan, Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore, Josh Thompson, Eric Paslay, and Sunny Sweeney it no wonder Country Throwdown it generating quite a bit of interest.

8. San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers almost made it to the Super Bowl last year.  Fans are assuming they will take the next step forward and are securing their seats early to stave off inflated tickets prices.

9. Bunbury Music Festival

Festival season is certain upon us with the 2012 Bunbury Fest taking place on July 13th – July 15th.  The 2012 Lineup includes Weezer, Death Cab for Cutie, Jane’s Addiction, Airborne Toxic Event, Minus the Bear, OAR, and many more!

10. Country Thunder

Country music continues to shine this week with another music festival.  The 2012 lineup includes Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert, Luke Bryan, Big & Rich, Steve Holy, Easton Corbin, Hunter Hayes, Wade Bowen, and many more!

Top Ticket Search Queries 2/23/2012

If you are involved in search engine optimization (SEO) you are probably well aware that Google no longer passes on search query data for users that are logged into their Google accounts.  With these recent changes it is becoming more and more important to analyze search data where ever you can obtain it.  Unless your website gets substantial search engine traffic it can be difficult to gather meaningful search engine data when anywhere from 40-60% of searches have no keyword data associated with it.  Fortunately, since Tickifieds gets thousands of unique visitors each day from search engines (primarily Google), we still get useful referral data even with a loss of roughly half of the data.  So, if you are an event ticket marketing guru you will want to check out or blog regularly as we will try and keep you informed on event ticket search trends.

In this new regular feature we combine search terms from major referring search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, AOL, Ask, Alta Vista, and Lycos with our native search to come up with the top 20 most searched performers and/or events.  Long-tailed keywords (which often include date, location, venue) are aggregated by performer where applicable.  As you can see from the list below, the most  searched for tickets typically involve performers with recent on sale events or events happening in the immediate future.

Tops in today’s search are the alternative rockers Chevelle.  The band from Grayslake Illinois is currently wrapping up their winter 2012 tour with sold out shows in Portland (Maine), New York, Atlantic City, Baltimore, Norfolk, Indianapolis, and Oklahoma City.
