A monthly look at Analytics

It’s a project that I’ve been working on for a while and it’s finally starting to show some information that is hopefully of some use for people.
If you head over to StatShare you can see the first of a monthly round up of analytics from August.
The idea of the project is to allow people to anonymously share their web stats to give us a picture of an “average” website.
If you would be so kind then why not share your web stats with the project? Every site added helps to improve the quality of the final stats we collate.

New Project – Stat Share

Well I have a new project I’ve been looking to start putting together for a while but I’ve got as far as a domain and a holding page. The project is called StatShare and is at http://www.statshare.net. The aim is for people to share their website analytic reports via the site, anonymously, and they will then be collected together and analysed to produce useful data on bounce rates, visitor numbers and conversion rates amongst other things. By giving sites profiles the site will hopefully deliver reports on bounce rates for blogs in various traffic bands for example.

If you’re interested head over to http://www.statshare.net and pop in your email address and be sure to follow the official StatShare twitter account @statshare.

Oh and there’s a bit of webkit animation in there if you can find it! – enjoy.

But fear not it’s pretty straightforward! – Read on. Continue reading
