Mining Traffic Data for Fun and Profit

The Performancing blog has great tips for content creators on how to increase traffic by mining search results.

There is often a disconnect between what you think your mission is and who your audience is and how people actually find your site. Looking through the keywords and referrals from the search engines that are driving traffic growth is equally humbling and useful.
