Most web professionals will tell you that Google Analytics (or a similar service) is a must have when creating a website. By and large, it’s the best way to measure your website traffic and marketing effectiveness. Not only is it quite popular, it’s also free. Google Analytics can do many, many things, but most often it seems to do one thing a little too well. Intimidate the user. Almost to a fault, the amount of features and statistics are near endless. To a web professional, it can be a dream come true...but to a common web user, it can be a nightmare.
That’s why we’re excited to announce a brand new set of features meant for the common user, built directly into Spinternet...a high level mix of Analytics information and time savers you’re sure to love.
Visitors – How many visitors are you getting?
Visualize the number of visitors to your site at a glance, or rollover the line graph for date specific information.
Traffic Types – Where is your traffic coming from?
Compare the percentages of incoming traffic sources, or rollover the pie graph for the exact numbers.
Top Ten Keywords – What do people search for to find your site?
Understand how users found your site from search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing plus what keywords brought the most traffic.
Top Ten Pages – What are your popular pages?
Recognize your most popular pages and notice their page titles and URL structure.
Turn any long URL: www.yoursite.com/product/category/type/year/color/model.aspx
Into a short URL: www.yoursite.com/catchyname
Plus, 301 redirects are the perfect way for you to transition your visitors away from old pages, and towards new pages during a new site launch.
Where the Analytics Dashboard is great for a broad spectrum view, Page Analytics is great for page specific stats. Browse pageviews, traffic types, even the average amount of time users spend on that page while you make page edits.
