Have you heard of Google Analytics? It's crazy cool!
Google Analytics is a free Google service that keeps detail records of you website hits; whether it be a blog, a storefront, whatever. If you have a web page and people visit it, you can use this service.
I *wish* the app enabled one to put the results online; you can't. Only I can see these results. The things that are included in their analysis of your pages are:
Which pages get the most hits.
How Many hits you get.
How long the people stayed on your page.
Did they move from page to page or stay on one only.
What browser they are using.
How many new vs. returning visitors
and much more.
But my fav.....where the people are logged in from. SO cool.
Hello to the person in Turkey who stopped by. *waves* Hi to United Kingdom people, and Germany, and the Dominican Republic. Hi Brazil and Canada and of course the U.S.
