Website Analytics January 7th, 2008
One of the most important crystal balls for small businesses online is web analytics. The reason that I personally rank this as the one of the most important tools is you can leverage it to look into the minds of your visitors. You can see what they are thinking and take action based on the cold hard facts that you gather by analyzing your data. Do you still wonder why web site analytics is so important to your success? Let me explain about the next generation of business-to-business analytics program that will change the way you do business online.You will learn that visitors come through main resources such as search engines by using keywords referring to websites then they will click the direct link to your site. Once they enter your site you will learn all you want to know about tracking your visitor using web analytics.
1) Open an account with Google AdWords and pay for your visitors
2) Learn about your visitors that land on your site naturally and ultimately formulate a method of higher conversion.
3) Combine both of the above.
Analytic methodologies will help you track the important metrics to learn more about visitors value time spent on your website.
Blog webmasters have been looking for a way to learn more about their blog visitors. How do they get to your blog? Why did they come to your blog? How long to they spend there? Well, the wait is over. Bloggers can install a WordPress plugin for free and get the answers needed to convert more visitors to action on their WordPress blog. The minimum requirements are WordPress 2.0 along with the normal server requirements that a website has. You will also require the legacy urchin.js script provided by Google. Again I remind you this is the best web site analytics program going and you can get for free. It is easily installed once you add Google’s web tracking script to your site.

Keep your analytics profile clean. Examine your data closely. If you are seeing many pages that are actually the same page use filters to provide an easy to understand report. One of the simplest things to do is make sure that you have set a default page. This will eliminate the "/" (slash) that you see in your report page. Now you will be able to view true report data on your homepage.
