Logs: Access Website Statistics
Wikipedia defines web analytics as not just a tool for measuring web traffic but a tool that can be used for business and market research, and to assess and improve the effectiveness of a website. Web analytics applications can also help companies measure the results of traditional print or broadcast advertising campaigns. It helps one to estimate how traffic to a website changes after the launch of a new advertising campaign. Web analytics provides information about the number of visitors to a website and the number of page views. It helps gauge traffic and popularity trends which is useful for market research.
We offer two very distinct and powerful tools to help you to maximize your website traffic.
The first tool that we offer is titled Latest Visitors.This tool, while being the more basic in terms of interaction, gives detailed information about the last 1,000 visits to your website. This information helps you get to know your audience and monitor repeat visitors so you can tailor your website content to fit their needs. It also helps you locate and fix errors that your visitors encounter.
The second tool available to you is titled AWStats. The Awstats interface compiles information about the way users access your website.
AWStats displays the following details about the visitors to your website:
- Monthly, daily, and hourly averages in graphs and tables
- The links through which visitors access your website
- HTTP error codes
- Operating systems
- Countries of origin
These sound pretty great right? If you are interested in checking it out then simply click the corresponding link below to find out how you can access them.
