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.

Duke Basketball TicketsNow that the Superbowl is over (are you happy the Giants won??  Poor Tom Brady.  Thwarted by Eli Manning AGAIN) We’ve entered that time of year when there’s not really a ton going on in the world of sports.  Sure there’s basketball and hockey, but playoffs for the NBA and NHL are still months away and March Madness doesn’t start for another month.

Clearly the most exciting game on the horizon is the North Carolina vs. Duke basketball game, which always draws huge attention due to their fierce rivalry.

Top Events Week 6, 2012

With Super Bowl XLVI taking place this weekend it is no wonder that the top 3 events this week are all Super Bowl related.  The Super Bowl is always a hot ticket but this year is especially big due to the teams involved:  the New York Giants and New England Patriots.  Not only do you have two of the largest sports markets in the country involved but you also have the two that hate each other the most.  Most people think of the Boston-New York rivalry as between Red Sox and Yankees fans.  However, the hatred spills over to all sports (Celtics vs Knicks, Patriots vs Jets/Giants, Bruins vs Rangers, etc.).  The NFL took a lot of heat for hosting the Super Bowl in a cold weather city (Indianapolis) but it doesn’t look like they are going to have any trouble attracting fans to all the festivities.Super Bowl XLVI
