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.

Top Weekend Events March 11 – 13

PBRWelcome to your Wednesday!

It certainly is an odd mix of things that are topping the charts this week, huh.  There’s everything from Bull Riding to Disney to Spring Training to Comedy and everything in between.

The Professional Bull Riders show up on the list for their Hampton Invitational where the riders seek valuable qualifying points for the 2011 Professional Bull Riders Tour Finals. The Hampton Invitational is part of the PBR’s Touring Pro Series. Money earned by the riders at PBR Hampton Invitational counts toward the PBR qualifier standings that determine which cowboys will compete at the 2011 Professional Bull Riders Tour Finals in Las Vegas NV.  Get all that?

As far as sports go, obviously March Madness kicks off this week with the regional tournaments including the Big Ten which appears on our list below and the Big East which has HUGE expectations for their outcomes.  Ohio State University and Pittsburgh are expected to come out on top of those tournaments.  The Yankees are the first official MLB baseball team to make the list in 2011.  I was betting it was going to be the Red Sox.  Oh well.

On the music scene, Flogging Molly is not of any surprise to me.  St. Patty’s day is almost upon us and FM’s Irish/Celtic rock sound is immensely popular this time of year.  Rascal Flatts is also showing up on the list with their big tour Nothing Like This.   Their shows are heavy on special effects, including videos, pyrotechnics and laser lights.  Kid Rock makes another appearance on the list.  And Girl Talk, also known as Gregg Michael Gillis, is an American musician that specializes in mashups and digital sampling.  The Houston Rodeo is also going on this weekend.  Other upcoming acts at the HR include: Lady Antebellum, Kid Rock (again!), KISS, Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley and Jason Aldean.  Tracy Morgan should not go unmentioned, given his popularity with Saturday Night Live (SNL) and 30 Rock.  This is one funny man!
