If your company is investing in the development of content, you'll find standard analytics nothing less than frustrating. Here are a few reasons… authors, categories, publication dates and tagging. There are specific questions you get asked by your company that you simply can't answer:
- What content that we published this month performed the best?
- What author drives the most traffic to our site?
- What tags are most popular?
- What categories of content are most popular?
