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 Events Week 3, 2012

miranda lambert concert ticketsIt’s Monday and that means it’s time to break down what is happening in the event ticket industry this week. Now that the College football season is over we are starting to see NBA, NHL, NFL, college basketball and even a few concerts sneak into the top 10 events this week (January 10th through January 16th, 2012).  We have quite a surprise this week as Miranda Lambert’s sold out concert in LaCrosse Wisconsin comes in at #1.  This is the country music vixen’s first appearance in our top 10 list.  However, country music events are no stranger to the list as Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, and Toby Keith are frequently listed.

Top Events 2012 Week 2 (1/10/2012 to 1/16/2012)

1. Miranda Lambert LaCrosse, WI 1/13/2012

Miranda Lambert’s 2012 “On Fire” tour is certainly, well…. on fire.  Country music is big in the northwoods of Wisconsin and Miranda Lambert is about as big as a country music star as there is today.

2. Boston Bruins vs Winnipeg Jets 1/10/2012

The defending Stanley Cup champions are picking up where they left off last season.  Bostonians love their hockey so it’s no wonder this game comes in at #2.

3. Boston Celtics vs Chicago Bulls 1/13/2012

Two of the best teams in the NBA Eastern conference will meet Friday night.  After some incredible triple overtime playoff games in the past, these teams are known to get a little physical – remember Rajon Rondo’s hissy fits?

4.  New England Patriots vs Denver Broncos AFC Divisional Playoffs 1/14/2012

Tebow mania is in fully swing after the Broncos stunning victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.  This one has drama written all over it:  Tebow vs Brady (Round 2).

5.  Monster Jam Alamodome San Antonio, TX 1/15/2012

Who doesn’t love Monster Trucks?  Texans certainly do…

6. Rebelution Best Buy Theater in New York 1/13/2012

If you haven’t heard of Rebelution before your not alone.  However, this indie reggae band from Santa Monica is making waves with the college crowd and is certainly a band to watch in 2012.

7.  San Francisco 49ers vs New Orleans Saints NFC Divisional Playoffs 1/14/2012

The San Francisco 49ers had an impressive season and earn the #2 seed.  However, the New Orleans Saints are surging and are the odds-on favorite.  The 49ers haven’t been in the playoffs in a while so ticket demand is especially high.

8.  Celine Dion Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas, NV 1/15/2012

This one continues to be a mystery to me…I have no idea who would pay that much money to hear Celine Dion squeal.

9.  Rascal Flatts and Sara Evans Charleston, WV 1/12/2012

The Rascal Flatts are teaming up with Sara Evans for a sold out show in Charleston West Virginia.  Should be an incredible show!

10.  Duke Blue Devils vs Virginia Cavaliers Basketball Durham, NC 1/12/2012

The #8 ranked Duke Blue Devils have a big matchup against the #16 Virginia Cavaliers.  The Cavs are currently leading the ACC and Duke will need a big win.  Should be a rockin’ time at Cameron Indoor Stadium!
