According to Google Analytics, every Monday over 20,000 visitors arrive at the OSU Web, stay two minutes and 14 seconds, view one and three-quarters pages, then move on.  The number decreases each day of the week until Saturday, when we’re down to less than 12,000 visitors.  What are those 12,000 people looking for on a Saturday?  It intrigues me!

But what would be even more intriguing would be to watch their movement across the entire OSU site – to have our tracking code on every page.  That would provide us with a clear picture of where we would be wise to invest in further development and also where we can minimize our efforts.  Anyone wanting data for their site should let us know so we can assist you in placing the appropriate tracking information and creating a unique profile for you.  The more sub-sites of OSU that sign-up, the greater detail we will have of how visitors are using our Web resources. Oh, did I mention that it’s free?

  1. The COB is interested in getting info about how our website is used and how long folks stay on it. I am not sure what other info you need or what info we get back. This is pretty vague. How do we track other sites w/i this site?

  2. Hi Brenda, if you’re not using any other tracking software, or if you’re struggling to get useful info on the fly, Analytics might be for you. It’s free to install, but it does require code to be added to every page of your site. We’d be happy to get together with you and show you how we’re using Analytics. x77669
