2010 in review [ROI HUNTERS BLOG]

No sooner did I post a comment about the shortcomings of WordPress.com stats then I found this in my email in-basket from the ‘stats helper monkeys’ of WordPress.com.    You can see by some of this analysis how it might be difficult to perform the following analysis:

  • Geo specific information – to help identify where geo targeted PPC advertising might be most effective.
  • Path Analysis – I want to understand if they stay for more then one page then where are they going.
  • Entry / Exit Stats – which pages are the stickiest, which exit pages do I need to work on.
  • Time Spent Stats – I love to understand what’s working and what’s not.  Outliers are the most fun!
  • Time of Day Stats – When is  my site being visited the most, this might affect my PPC spending habits.
