Once your site is listed with the search engines and you start receiving visitors, you'll want to get feedback on your site's performance.
There are 3 ways to get this information:
• NetConsole Logs: Included with every hosting account is a versatile online control panel. With the NetConsole, you
have full control over email, CGI scripts, and site statistics. These basic logs can give you an idea of your website's traffic and the general flow of visitors.
• WebTrends: This report generates an incredibly detailed log of your website's traffic - how many people visited, where they came from, where they went after their visit, and how long they stayed
are just some of the records WebTrends generates.
• Web Positioning Report: The previous 2 reports gave you an idea of the internal activity of your website. To learn where
the site ranks in the search engines, you need a Web Positioning Report. It searches through the popular search engines using designated keywords,
returning where your site is ranked according to each keyword combination. It's invaluable when attempting to increase site exposure.
Site statistics and tracking are a key element to the success of your site; Netsations recommends you take advantage of these
services regularly, as they are invaluable to the ongoing optimization of your online business strategy.
