About Us

The Web Analytics and Metrics working group's mission is to establish an enterprise view of UW web stats usage and metrics. The intent is that the group will serve as a hub for accumulating knowledge about how web stats have been by various campus units. From this, the group can come up with a set of best practices and recommendations.

As a decentralized organization, there are varied approaches to understanding web traffic. Some of the tools used include Urchin, Google Analytics and Webalizer. We hope to learn some the the positive and negative aspects of each approach. We also want to share ways in which web analytics are reported and influence policy decision.
