Measuring success with business analytics

Business analytics

Measure the success of your website with business analytics. 

The secret to a successful website is by knowing how to effectively collect and utilise the right information in a way that makes key business decisions clear and obvious.

Unlike any other marketing, the success of your website is completely and naturally trackable. Not only is every page and image access recorded in a log file, but you can even add tags to the pages on your website for special web analytics servers to monitor the visitors on your website. Web statistics reporting tools can access this information and represent the data to highlight visitor patterns and behaviours. 

In order to make sense of this information, you need to determine what information is fundamental to the key decisions you need to make. Once you know what you’re looking for, you then need to determine how you are going to look after and nurture this information in order that the right decisions can be made.

How to track your KPIs

Your KPIs will be a set of measurements you take on a regular basis in order to track the performance over time. 

This data can be used to make performance predictions for changes in any of the measured data. Standard performance indicators are: 

  • Daily, weekly, monthly visitors 
  • Daily, weekly, monthly page views 
  • Most requested pages
Measuring Success

How to determine what information is important.

The information is only important if it is relevant to the purpose of your website. 

If you know your purpose, then you need to assess what key performance indicators (KPI) you need to start measuring.

This is achieved by determining candidate indicators and build ways to measure them.

Landing pages

Why landing pages are so important.

What are landing pages? 

Landing pages are ordinary web pages, but instead of being referenced somewhere within your website from a menu item or related link, it is either completely separate from your website and referenced from an external website or directory, or intentionally referenced from within the site to track a specific action.
