I know it's kind of borderline relevance, but people have shared tips on
graphic web sites here before, so...
I've been trying google analytics - you have to apply and wait but it only
took 5 weeks for mine to come through. You add a couple of lines to the web
pages you want to track on your site, and google then produce a mass of very
interesting info on how people are using your site.
Seems a lot more comprehensive than the log analysers I have seen, (and you
don't have to maintain gigs of log files).
Particularly impressive are the figures on what pages people come in on,
where from, and how long they stay. And its a lot of fun to get a zoomable
map where you can see where your audience is based.
Of practical use to the graphic artist are the figures on the display size
and colour depth of the viewers monitors.
If you can copy and paste a small chunk of test into a page with notepad,
you have the required skills!
If anyone else is already using it, and has some tips on getting the most
out of it, I'd be interested to hear them...
