Web Stats Poll

November 13, 2006 by

How often do you look at your web site statistics?Last week we polled to see how many web stat addicts we had in the house, and thankfully only 17% of you were true addicts. Another 17% check their numbers weekly, while most (38%) only do it when they think of it. 28% don’t check their stats, don’t have access or don’t know what we’re talking about.

Confession time: I used to be a daily stat checker. I’m not sure how much it helped knowing every daily dip and rise in traffic. It can be a nice encouragement that what you’re doing pays off, but it can also turn into a daily time suck. Now I just check the stats when I think of it, and that seems to work a little better.

This week we ask about how often pastors talk about stewardship.

    Holistic, not wholistic. ;)

    Funny, Betsy.
    We use FeedBurner and Sitemeter and just run weekly or monthly reports — works great for really looking at how our site is being used.
    I think you HAVE to look at what people are using and not using. If no one ever uses a certain part of the site, why spend the time to put it up or maintain it?
