Using Google Analytics

I have been using Google Analytics for a few years now, and I have to say that I am quite impressed at the reports that it makes (even though the traffic at my sites aren't impressive).

For those who have not yet known GA yet, it is a service that generates detailed statistics on website visitors. This is very useful, especially for marketers, to know which pages work (or don't work) in attracting and retaining visitors.

Let's see what statistics this site has generated so far:

So far, most of our visitors came from the Philippines, and not surprisingly, a lot of them come from Makati. This next image will explain why.

Many of the page views are on the how-to page for configuring Globe Visibility (a local HDSPA service) for use with Ubuntu.

From this few information, we can create some hypotheses regarding the visitors. They are quite affluent, or work with affluent companies. The fact that they work in Makati and Mandaluyong already gives us this clue, however, the additional fact that they have Globe Visibility (not a cheap service) strengthens this conclusion.

This may be a "simplistic" conclusion to arrive on, but it is still noteworthy and important. This is a form of user feedback, and would drive me (as a blogger) more things that will be interesting to my readers.
