People of the World…..build websites

One for the geography students out there. By far the greatest majority of webeden’s site visits come from the US, UK and Europe, there’s no surprise there, because that’s where we tend to spend our advertising dollars/pounds/euros.

Some of the more remote (to us anyway) website visitors this month have come from

Tehran, Iran, 2 visits. Kathmandu, Nepal, 2 visits, and from Porto Velho, Brazil 3 visits.

How do we know this? We run a stats package (Google analytics) which gives us data on almost everyone who visits our site. Why do we do this? We want to know where the interest in products is coming from and adjust our ad targeting accordingly.

There’s nothing difficult about this at all. If you want to see who’s visiting your site, we think the best free stats package on the market is found at www.google.com/analytics. And Yes. You can use it with your webeden website.

So go on, give it a go. Just go to ‘admin’ on your sitemaker toolbar, choose ’statistics’ from the drop down menu and you’ll find a ’sign up to google analytics’ button in the toolbox.

    Maybe you could give us a bit of a tutorial on Analytics sometime? .All the sites I build are signed up for Analytics….but, truthfully, I’m not sure how to make the most of it for my clients!

    Hi Alison,

    That’s a good idea – I think it would work too as a video tutorial. We’ll plan that out and try and get it sorted in March.
