From the Editor: Inside the Online World
While some Web professionals proclaim that the Web is teetering on the edge of a phenomenal crash, others are focusing on what they can do to improve their existing environment. By understanding how well (or how poorly) things are going, we can make informed decisions for the benefit and sustainability of our Web enterprises and those that support its endeavors.
The focus of this issue of
Website Magazine is analytics. Our feature article will help those new
to measuring the performance of their Web properties and there are also
many in-depth insights that will change how you currently measure,
review and understand the numbers that represent success for your online
presence in the dynamic environment of the Web. While it used to be
sufficient just to keep track of unique visitors and page views, much
has changed. In the last great landscape where we as Web professionals
can make adjustments to achieve true improvement to the bottom line, the
issue at hand is really that success on any major scale requires us to
accept responsibility for actions already taken. Only when we understand
what has worked and what has not are we able to push our enterprises
