How to monitor downloads You can also use “Event tracking” for this. Maybe be better for video and music downloads for example.
Which metrics and how often? :: Have a good proper look once a month at the most important metrics. (When doing changes, check more often) :: Have a more indebt look every 3-6 month, depending on seasonality of your sector. :: Just looking isn’t enough! Act on the stats!
Which metrics are important and how do you respond to them? :: Number of visits :: Pages/visit :: Time on site :: New vs. returning
Number of visitors, not just about the home page Responding to the stats :: Look at how people are navigating through your site, use: Navigation summary Site overlay :: Revisit your key words and double check your page optimisation
Bounce rate, by keyword and by entry page Responding to the stats :: Look at your landing pages for the phrases. It is instantly clear what the page does and where to go next? :: Are you getting bouncing traffic from phrases that are not relevant? :: If using PPC for bouncing phrases, turn it off until you have fixed the problem.
Traffic source Responding to the stats :: Are you getting enough organic search traffic? :: Is traffic coming from sites you expect it to come from, ex affiliate sites? :: Can you find other similar sites to get more traffic from? :: Can you spot new geographic markets?
