Simple Search Cloud Script by Dan Fletcher

vB Google Search Cloud

Simple Search Cloud


A search cloud is like a tag cloud, that you find on blogs- except instead of showing a cloud of tags, it shows a cloud of search terms used to access the site.

It shows different searches visitors have used to get to your website. The more people that searched for a particular term- the bigger that term will appear in the cloud.

This script is easy to install, particularly if you have a PHP based website (like a blog, a script, a forum, etc).

It will increase your page views (because it encourages customers to explore more), and is also great for SEO.

More about search clouds...

One of the best ways to get targeted traffic to your website is through the search engines. And how much traffic you get will be based on how high you appear in the search engine rankings. So it is important to spend some of your marketing time trying to improve your search engine rankings. There are many ways to do this, but the two main ways are changing the text on your website, and increasing the links to your website.

You also need to look at the actual links on your website- make sure you link to your important pages, and use good anchor text (which is the text that your link appears as, eg a link to bluewidgets.com might appear as "blue widgets", so "blue widgets is the anchor text"). A great way to optimize your internal links is to use a "search cloud". A search cloud appears on your website (often on the side), and is a large list of words. Each word is a link, and they are all different sizes. Each word is something that someone searched for when they came to your website. If a lot of people search for a certain word, then that word will appear bigger in the cloud.

Search clouds help with your search engine rankings, because they ensure that you have internal links with the anchor text that people are actually searching for. Often people will guess what anchor text they should use- but they often get it wrong. A search cloud solves this problem- because it’s based on live results based on what people actually searched for. Lets say that you get some traffic for the search phrase "blue widgets". If someone visits your site after searching for "blue widgets", then the search cloud will now show "blue widgets", with a link to the relevant page. Now you have extra links to "blue widgets", you are more likely to rank higher for that term.

There are other benefits to search clouds as well. They can help lead your customers to your more important pages. If someone searches for "red widget", and then sees that the biggest phrase in your search cloud is for "blue widgets", they instantly know that your site is popular for blue widgets, and may go and visit the page. Search clouds also encourage visitors to explore your, which will help increase the average page views per visitor. This can mean more income, whether it’s in the form of extra sales, or more revenue from advertising. You can usually add a search cloud quite easily to your website.
