Presentation on theme: "Report Administration. Introduction Name / job role What company are you with How much experience do you have using Webtrends Create a Word document."— Presentation transcript:
As a best practice, you should define campaigns by tagging your site using the WT.ad and WT.ac Webtrends query parameters, because using this method allows you to create custom reports based on your ad views and ad clicks. Microlanding.htmlOnSiteAd.html WT.ac = camera_ad
OnSite Advertising The tag builder uses just the WT.ac tag to calculate both the click event and the impression. Enabling this setting causes the tag to scan all links on a page, looking for the Ad Click parameter specified in the accompanying text box. The text box must contain a query parameter used to denote Ad Click links. If a matching link is found (case insensitive), its Ad Click parameter value is extracted and assigned to the Ad View parameter (WT.ad). If more than one Ad Click link is found, each value is appended to the Ad View parameter (delimited by semi-colon). This work is performed by a function named dcsAdSearch

Report Administration Content Groups v9 Category v10
Content Group Content groups designate pages with related subject matter. This grouping allows you to track the visitor interest in subject matter rather than in individual pages, which makes interpreting visitor interest far more intuitive. By grouping together related pages, you can also track web activity on your site from perspectives that may not be inherently possible with your site’s current design With content Groups you can measure content effectiveness. Content that is grouped together can be a specific URL or a pattern within a URL – configured in UI (no sub-groups)
Content Groups Site Navigation Themed Pages Segment
Content Groups A Content Group definition uses the following parameters: WT.cg_n = Content Group Name WT.cg_s = Sub-Content Group Name You can specify multiple content groups per page. The Sub-Content Group parameter is optional. If the Sub-Content Group parameter is included, there must be at least one Content Group value. There is no correlation between the pairings when using the pre-configured reports.
Demonstration: Content Groups Whatever.com would like a report that shows hits to the ‘Top Content Group’, and the relevant sub-content groups: Tag the relevant pages with the meta tags:
Demonstration: Content Groups Edit the Whatever Profile and enable the custom report Content Groups and Sub Groups. Reanalyze the profile. View the report. Site Design > Pages and Files
Demonstration: Content Groups The Digital Content manager at Whatever.com wishes to determine how visitors are visiting the online store pages on the site. The pages are located in the /cart/.* directory.
Path analysis allows you to see how visitors navigate to an important page on your site and where they go from that page, giving you a very focused look at key navigation paths. Different approaches to path analysis provide different types of insight into your visitors’ activity. You can take a free-form approach and track the top paths starting with the entry page. This analysis lets you know where visitors began and where they went on your web site. Or you can look at the most popular routes on your site.
Path Analysis Path Analysis definitions allow you to track pages visited before and/or after a specified page or Content Group. This enables you to see both how visitors are reaching key pages or Content Groups and where they go once they visit them. For example, you can view the most common paths to your ordering page or see where visitors go after viewing product information pages
Demonstration: Path Analysis MUSA.com want to determine what paths visitors take to / from a specific page on the site. Create Path Analysis Report 5 Levels to / from the landing page. Data source: MUSA
Scenario Analysis Your conversion rate is a measure of your ability to persuade your visitors to take those actions. The following scenarios are examples of conversion: Visitors purchasing products Prospects registering for more information Customers using your self-service section Investors downloading your annual report Employees using your internal site to schedule vacations Visitors registering for the site’s newsletter or to enter contests
At what steps are they entering? What pages and campaigns are driving people to the scenario? Do people ever skip steps? ???
Scenario Analysis Inflow Pinpoint exactly where people enter your conversion scenario Approx 90% total visits to the funnel enter at the Product Page 17% of those visits (90%) enter from Kawasaki Parts Approx 9% enter the scenario at Step 2.
Scenario Analysis Fall-out Pinpoint at what steps people leave the process Abandon Detour Approx 1% people who made it to the started checkout process Abandoned or Detoured their visit
Scenario Analysis Site Abandonment Those who leave the site altogether when they leave the scenario 77% of the total visits to the funnel exit on the Product Page. Of those 33% visits Abandoned their visit to the site at that step. Of those 22% visits Detoured from the funnel on the Shift Street page.
Scenario Analysis Visitors can enter the scenario at any step Visits for a later step may be higher than for a preceding step The numbers may not always add up Because of the non-linear nature of scenarios you cannot sum visits in each view If you identify a step that visitors are repeating, find out why
Workshop: Scenario Analysis MUSA.com wishes to optimize their shopping cart funnel by analysing the conversion funnel activity: Report TitleParameter ShoppingCartWT.si_n Parts PageWT.si_x = 1 Cart ViewWT.si_x = 2 CheckoutWT.si_x = 3 Order PlacedWT.si_x = 4
Workshop: Scenario Analysis In some instances you will need to configure Scenario Analysis by specifying the URLs of the pages you want to track. Report TitleURL Product Page/cart/Step1_Product.html Open Basket/cart/Step2_Account.html Account Details/cart/Step3_Basket.html Checkout Complete/cart/Step4_Order_Placed.html Invoice/cart/Step5_Invoice.html
Workshop: Scenario Analysis Whatever.com wishes to compare their overall conversion rates with those that just ‘intent to buy’: Open Basket Order Placed Invoice
There are a few important configuration updates that Webtrends administrators can take in On Demand prior to the Analytics 10 release in order to prepare for the successful rollout and adoption of Analytics 10. The most important configuration updates are the following: Profile Domain Mapping to new "Spaces" Custom Report Categorization Controlling Access to Analytics 10 Preparing to Add New Spaces That Use Third-Party Credentials Enabling Analytics 10 Optional Reports Updating Thumbnail Images Setting Up Groups
The report sets that come by default when a space is created will be categorized into one of the report categories: Content Events People Traffic Technology
Analytics 10 Administrators will have a flag in Analytics 10 "Settings / Users" area that can be used to enable access for all users. This will allow any administrator to set the flag to allow "All Users" in their organization to have access to Analytics 10.
Analytics 10 Groups Groups let you organize spaces and profiles the way you want. What are groups? You can organize spaces and profiles by dragging any space or profile into a group. Groups are not roll-ups; they do not combine the report data of spaces or profiles. They're for organization and correlation only. Groups are useful for comparing two or more related spaces or profiles side by side. You can make a group private, so only you can see it, or public, so everyone in your account has access.
The Data Extraction API conforms to the REST (Representational State Transfer) architectural style, using the HTTP protocol and a URI to access resources. Integrates with Excel without coding, client software, or installed driver--you need only your Webtrends credentials to get data Returns the entire data set for a trend in response to a single URI (for example, trending a week by hours) Is profile and account independent, so you can list multiple profiles by changing the profile name in the URI
REST API There are two main ways of creating the REST request: Analytics 10: via the “Share” option when viewing a report from within the Webtrends Analytics 9 Insight user interface. REST Generator: is an application that helps you rapidly create a request for profile or report data.
