Abstract

Web analytics is the measurement of visitor behaviour on a website and it can be used to collect basic visitor information such as number of visitors and visit duration etc. This basic information can then be combined to create meaningful key performance indicators which are used to analyze the performance of the website. In this paper we analyzed the log files of a website using a log analyzer tool. We used different key performance indicators like visit depth, frequency of visit and visitor ratio for our analysis.
