Use a good statistics program on our website is of vital importance, since we can assist in various aspects such as to see the results of an advertising campaign or learn various customs and preferences of visitors. To do this, not just a simple hit counter, since it does not show us much information about visitors, even shows actual visits, but the times it has shown the page (if the same visitor sees page eight Sometimes, the counter will add eight visits), so are not useful for our purposes. There are many websites devoted has to offer these traffic statistics, most offer a free basic service and a more complete payment. It is also possible that the hosting provider we offer web statistics for free. To better understand these statistics and determining which are really useful to us, we hear and know about its possibilities. Here are some of the information that may offer these statistics.
# Unique Visitors. # Page views. # Origin of the visits. # Visitors for hours. # User Info. # Visits by country.
a Those are real visitors. If the same visitor load eight times a page, only count a visitor. The statistics server controls visits by checking IP addresses for each user. a stas are the number of pages that visitors have seen. For example, if a visitor browsing our website seven pages, the counter will add seven page views. We compare this data with unique visitors to see the interest of the Internet on our website. For example if we have 100 visitors and 700 page views, we will have an average of 7 page views per visitor, but if the two data are almost equal, it would mean that Internet users do not feel concerned with the content of or links to web pages are not well marked. Here we can see from where our visitors come. This fact is very interesting, because we can control the search engines and sites that are reporting more visits, in addition we can also see which keywords have been used to find from search engines. This figure shows the times in which we have more traffic and in the least. We can draw conclusions from visiting us more hours, or from home. Here you can find various data about the visitor’s computer configuration, such as browser version, operating system, monitor resolution, color depth, etc. These data are useful from the point of view of design. I found it interesting that only 4% of visitors had the resolution to 640 x 480 pixels and only 6% had the setting to 256 colors. This data tells us the origin of visitors by country, so if we have many visitors to a particular country, we include some country-specific content.
