How much do you know about your site visitors?

How do you know what your Internet visitors are looking at when they hit your site? Having a better understanding of traffic on your site assists in planning future development, increasing web site traffic and also provides opportunities for increasing revenue through targeted advertising.

Do you know how long web site visitors are there for, how they hit your site or what country they are from? You might be receiving hundreds or thousands of hits a day, but if the visitors were only on your site for 15 seconds each, that would indicate there's a problem.

If you wish to sell Internet advertising space to clients, they will want to know about your visitor demographics - guessing won't cut it and you'll lose potential advertising business very quickly. A basic free web site hit counter stats just won't cut it.

Statistics reporting services aren't the same

Top quality web site traffic statistics reporting usually costs an arm and a leg. Of course, you could always do it yourself with log analyzers, but this is time consuming to set up and can also be costly if you purchase a premium analyzer. If you are being hosted on free space, the chances are you won't have access to your server log files. In these cases, you'll need to utilize a remotely hosted hit counter and monitoring service for accurate analysis.

We analyze our server log files regularly to get a better idea how we can to improve our site for our visitors. The results of statistics analysis are in our visitor counts - our hits are increasing steadily every month through responding to trends that appear in our monitoring reports.
