Web General Statistics provides information about the number of visitors to a website and the number of page views. It helps gauge traffic and popularity trends, which is useful for market research. Web statistics or analytics is not just a process for measuring web traffic as a tool for business and market research and assess and improve website effectiveness.
Most web statistics/analytics processes come down to four essential stages or steps, which are:
—> Collection of data: This stage is the collection of the basic/elementary data. Usually, these data are counts of things. The objective of this stage is to gather the data.
—> Processing of data into information: This stage usually takes counts and makes them ratios, although there still may be some counts. The objective of this stage is to take the data and conform it into information, specifically metrics.
—> Developing KPI: This stage focuses on using the ratios (and counts) and infusing them with business strategies, referred to as Key Performance Indicator (KPI). Many times, KPIs deal with conversion aspects, but not always. It depends on the organization.
—> Formulating online strategy: This stage is concerned with the online goals, objectives, and standards for the organization or business. These strategies are usually related to making money, saving money, or increasing market share.
So therefore we would be explaining each phase we have under our general statistics.
A site map is a list of pages of a website within a domain. Sitemaps may be addressed to users or to software. Many sites have user-visible sitemaps which present a systematic view, typically hierarchical, of the site. These are intended to help visitors find specific pages, and can also be used by crawlers. Alphabetically organized site maps, sometimes called site indexes, are a different approach.
In the screenshot below you will be able to access your sitemap with statistics information such as site url, frequency, link, priority and date.
Site traffic is the amount of data sent and received by visitors to a website. This amount necessarily does not include the traffic generated by bots. This result is determined by the number of visitors and the number of pages they visit. Sites monitor the incoming and outgoing traffic to see which parts or pages of their site are popular and if there are any apparent trends, such as one specific page being viewed mostly by people in a particular country and state.
More also in site traffic you have access to monitor type of system (device) users use to visit the a website, same as IP address, the type of browser and lastly a date site was visited.
An error log is a record of critical errors that are encountered by the site, operating system or server while in operation. Some of the common entries in an error log include table corruption and configuration corruption. Error logs in many cases serve as extremely useful tools for troubleshooting and managing systems, servers and even networks.
So therefore each error log has its own title or subject which is known as log title. As you can see below in our screenshot ”Payment log error | Transaction Log processed” that is an example of log title. Moreso, there is log body which gives details about the error such as error possible causes. And lastly you can have access to view site url error and date it occurred.
API is the acronym for Application Programming Interface, which is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. Each time you use an app like Facebook, send an instant message, or check the weather on your phone, you’re using an API. So in this case you can block API connections and view the statistics details from your end.
This a connection between users and the page they can access. It is a type of connection interface, offering a service to other pieces of information and connection. A document or standard that describes how to build or use such a connection or interface is called an API specification. A computer system that meets this standard is said to implement or expose an API. The term API may refer either to the specification or to the implementation. API Connection shows the user a particular site, in summary it helps users with the page they can access.
A website backup is a copy of all of your website data. What the backup storage encompasses will depend upon your online backup provider. As a general rule of thumb, the more data that’s included in the data backup, the better.
Backing up your site is the only way to ensure you’re protected from losing all the work you’ve put into it. And losing your website can have big consequences.
If you have to build a new website from scratch, you lose the time and cost involved in creating an all new site. That’s not a small thing. And if your website had a lot of pages or an active blog, you may be unable to recreate some of the content you worked hard on—a portion of your website could end up being gone for good.
A custom email address uses a specific domain name instead of a generic one. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org is a custom email address, whereas Support@junkedhost.comis a generic free email address. With a custom email address, you can decide exactly what goes before and after the @ symbol.
A subdomain is, as the name would suggest, an additional section of your main domain name. You create subdomains to help organize and navigate to different sections of your main website. Within your main domain, you can have as many subdomains as necessary to get to all of the different pages of your website.
