Last weekend I presented “By the Numbers” at WordCamp Las Vegas, covering web analytics and blog statistics. I spoke about which numbers you should be paying attention to, and which you can ignore, and ripped apart some myths around the stats we love to watch.
The focus was on the statistics we get with our WordPress blogs by using Google Analytics, Woopra, WP-Stats, WordPress.com Stats, and other blog traffic tracking and analytics tools. By learning more about the numbers, we can learn how to use them in our blogs to our benefit and the benefit of our readers.
I also showcased Woopra, my favorite real-time live web analytics program, showing the audience how you can see what is happening on your website or blog right now. We watched the traffic and interaction on four WordPress blogs.
The Ustream WordCamp Las Vegas Live Stream went out with my presentation, but unfortunately, it wasn’t archived. So this Viddler video is a reproduction of my presentation.
It’s about 53 minutes long and over 240 megs in size. I’ll be releasing shorter versions later, with a captioned version coming soon.
