Analyzing Baylor Web Traffic

Determining Web Site Effectiveness through NetTracker 6.0

NetTracker, a new web log file analysis software package Baylor has added to its growing list of web tools, offers web site administrators the ability to analyze both the usage and effectiveness of a web site via standard and custom reports. The reports let administrators know important information about visits to their site--the most viewed pages, length of visits, paths used to get to site or specific pages, identifying visitors, keywords entered to find a site, and what errors if any occurred including a list of broken links.

Although NetTracker is easy to use and offers a wealth of information via its standard reports, its real strength lies in giving users the ability to customize those standard reports and/or create custom reports specifically focused on analyzing a particular area of Baylor's web site. It is an incredible analytical tool for evaluating and improving an existing web site.

Due to the system resources necessary to run this system, access to the NetTracker system is by request only. If you have an express need, please contact David Seago at 710-4134 (David_Seago@baylor.edu) or Sharon Peregrine Johnson at 710-4673 (Sharon_P_Johnson@baylor.edu).
