Sign up to google webmaster tools www.google.com/webmasters/tools/. Here you will find lots of information about your webistes including search trends, keywords that result your website, which sites are linking to your website. These things are necessary for Search Engine Optimization.
Remember that information could take about 1 month or more to appear on webmaster tools.
