Google Analytics Report for 2015 / Comparison to 2014

Current Google Analytics Report, compare previous period

Current Google Analytics Report, compare same period/previous year

This report compares our analytic figures from March 17, 2016 to May 18, 2016 with the same period the previous 2 months. The second report compares it to the same period the previous year.

Historical Background

The figures that were formerly in this section were created from the statistics generated by the AWStats program offered online by our web host.

One of the major changes that occurred with AMHosting moving our site to a new server (which is supposed to be more stable) is that we no longer have access to AWStats, the statistics program we have been using for years.

The downside is that we can no longer compare apples to apples when looking at our historical data. The good news is that we have had Google Analytics set up on the site for some time, so we can still maintain a long-term overview by looking at this service.

The key - to me - is to properly choose which metrics are important to us and to be able view them quickly and easily on a regular basis. Google Analytics offers such a depth of information, it can feel like you're drowning in it.

Once we have settled on what metrics are important to us, these can be published in a report which is emailed on a regular basis. Should this be sent to the board group mail - once a month?, once a week?, once a quarter?

I just (as in 9/17/15) updated the code used on our website to the most current version for Google Analytics. Hopefully, this will improve the reporting, but there is a small possibility that things could be awry. I will keep monitoring it. I know there are old pages on our site that do not have the Analytics code on them. As I continue to switch the older pages to our new layout, this will be corrected.
