In this post I’ll look at how studying minute-by-minute website traffic can help shape live event coverage, using the example of Australia v England in

Help! I need somebody
Most websites have areas that require improvement. I can help
Need a website
Quite a key issue this one… I can build personal and business sites, using WordPress and Elementor to build sites that are responsive, stylish and fast, but also affordable.
Need a writer / someone to improve existing copy
I held senior editorial positions at the BBC for a decade, including chief sub-editor and front-page editor. I have also written web copy and blogs for businesses across multiple sectors.
Feel you need a plan
Which pages does your site need? What content should you be producing? Who do you want to visit the site?
How can you entice these people – by search? By social? From another route? As senior development journalist and then leading an analytics team at the BBC I agonised over questions like this. My consultancy work has included creating editorial plans for global sport bodies.
My aim is to help you to achieve more from what you have – working smarter rather than spending money on tech or people.
Have ‘create newsletter’ on the to-do list
I wrote and managed the 2016 Olympics newsletter for the BBC, this building on the success of the general sport newsletter. I have also launched newsletters for business organisations.
Require a general health check for your site
Most sites have the same issues and they’re easy to fix. I can carry out an audit and give you a list of things to improve. Your site will be faster and rank higher
Want some help with analytics
I am an experienced user of Google analytics as well as being confident with advanced tools including Comscore and Chartbeat. If I know your site goals (or help you to define them) I can create dashboards to match.
Want to discuss 1980s and 90s pop music
Now we’re talking.

Thinking out loud
Autism hours are a godsend. You won’t hear me say a word against them. The benefits are obvious, making everything from basic resources through to
SEO for sport sites – it’s all about ranking for popular terms isn’t it. Except, what if nobody clicks through because they stay on Google…
An inability to make decisions on even the smallest of things is destroying my mental health. Here’s to overcoming the problem.
Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t… Usually my blog posts have three or four pars of intro before really getting to the point –
James Cahill, Dustin Brown, Toby Roland-Jones… not household names yet for brief moments they lit up search. Here’s how to capitalise on these moments.
