Visitor Demographics ReportsBetter understand who your customers are and how to better align your marketing with your desired audience.The Demographic reports and dashboard provide an aggregated snapshot of the age groups, gender, and age-gender cross-tabulations of customers from each of your traffic channels. These dashboards help you picture your visitors as people rather than just a series of clicks.Age and gender can also be used as dimensions for filtering and segmenting data. For instance, it may be interesting to see what age and gender your campaigns are reaching, how audiences differ from channel to channel, and who your audience is for each of your products.Demographic information can be used to create more targeted campaigns, or to find high performing audiences in new channels.

YWA versus Google<br />CMS Watch found that Yahoo!’s Web Analytics software is better than Google’s in some important key areas, including:<br />Access control options and approach to multi-site analytics<br />Monthly page-view limits (200MM for Yahoo! vs. 5MM for Google – unless an active Google AdWords campaign is present)<br />Access to traffic data – both vendors retain the right to hold and use your web analytics data, but only Yahoo! gives the ability to export un-aggregated data.<br />Longer historical availability of reports and data.<br />Although Google has made some advances in its analytics platform, including report API, enterprise consumers are still concerned about data access and migration in Google analytics. This gives Yahoo! an advantage.<br />
