Anyone that owns a website shares one main question? How many people are viewing my website? Monitoring your web statistics helps you to know if you are getting your word out there. In the beginning just a few daily visitors makes you happy. I remember when I was getting 10 visits a day, and I was excited, but most of want more the longer we have a web presence. We want more and more people to find us. We want to know that the time and money we’ve spent on our sites are worth it. We want to know if more people are visiting our sites, and why did they come? What did they do once they were there? Buy monitoring your statistics you can find all that out and then make sure that the information people are reading, is great, and if possible, provide more information like it. If your website is more static, you may want to know who is ending you traffic and look for similar ways to promote your site.
If you are just moving into a web presence, find a way to monitor your traffic now. At some point, it’s going to be important, nad it will be great to look back and where you started and where you end up after a little time.
