Not Provided Kit

Download the free ‘Not Provided’ kit.

Since October 2011, Google has gradually hidden away data about the keywords used by people to find your site.

The “Not Provided” Kit is a set of simple add-ons for Google Analytics (put together by me – @danbarker) to help you understand what’s happening now that data is absent. It won’t fix the problem, but it may bring other insight around ‘not provided’ visits.

Kit Contents:

  1. Your Current Percentage: A single-chart dashboard showing your current ‘not provided’ percentage (ie. how much open data remains).
  2. Full Dashboard: A full dashboard of trends for ‘not provided’, including graphs, metrics, and breakdowns by browser, device, etc.
  3. Detailed Report: A more detailed custom report showing full landing page info for not provided traffic.
  4. ‘Not Provided’ Segment: An advanced segment allowing you to see any Google Analytics reports for just‘not provided’ traffic.
  5. ‘Keyword Known’ Segment: An advanced segment showing any report only where Google organic keyword data was known.
  6. A ‘Not Google’ Segment: This ‘Non-Google’ organic search segment shows you data only where you dohave perfect keyword data from other search engines that you can act on.

Feel free to drop me a note on Twitter (@danbarker) with any questions, feedback, or requests for additions.


  1. ‘Not Provided Other Search Terms’ Segment: This only works if your account has ‘visitors segments’ enabled. If users visit your site via ‘Not Provided’, but have also visited the site at another time using known keywords, this shows those. Install this.
  2. Not Provided Other Channels’ Segment: again, this only works for accounts with ‘visitor segments’ enabled. This shows data where users have visited your site through other channels where they have also visited via ‘Not Provided’ at some point. Install this.

UK SEO Pricing Infographic

UK SEO Pricing


Here’s an infographic based on the results of a survey of 81 UK agencies & consultancies who provide SEO services.

The background on it is that SEOMoz recently conducted a global SEO pricing survey. The survey covered 500+ agencies & consultancies providing SEO services in various countries across the world. They very kindly released the raw data, so I’ve compiled the results from the 81 UK responses into the below Infographic. (leaning more toward ‘info’ than ‘graphic’).

Feel free to reuse the graphic. Please do link back to the original SEOMoz post (and to me either here or as @danbarker on twitter).

Here’s some code to embed it on your site if useful:



There are lots of caveats to this data: We don’t know who the respondents were, the original price questions were all in US dollars, though I’ve converted to pounds (often asking in dollars means UK people either guess at the exchange rate, or simply reply as if the question were in pounds), the pool of data is fairly small, questions are paraphrased here, etc.

But there’s valuable stuff there both for SEO companies & for anyone buying SEO services. Take a look at the original post on SEOMoz for more details, and to download the data yourself. (I have no affiliation with SEOMoz – I just liked that they’d put out the raw data, and they agreed I could reuse it if I linked back).
