Site Catalyst o Omniture SiteCatalyst® provides marketers with actionable, real-time intelligence about online strategies and marketing initiatives. o SiteCatalyst helps marketers quickly identify the most profitable paths through their Web site, determine where visitors are navigating away from their site, and identify critical success metrics for online marketing campaigns. o SiteCatalyst is part of the Omniture Online Marketing Suite of applications for online business optimizations. 6. Interface 7. Visitors vs Unique Visitors o A unique visitor refers to an individual who has visited a site the first time within a certain time period. o Default method for calculating unique visitors is to set a cookie on the user's browser. When the user accesses the website, the cookie uniquely identifies the visitor in SiteCatalyst. If cookies are disabled on a visitor's browser, Omniture uses a combination of the user agent string and the IP address to determine if a visitor is unique. 8. Instance vs Visits o The Instances metric is used to report on the number of times that a particular value is triggered in SiteCatalyst. o Visits refers to the number of user sessions, consisting of one or multiple page views and ending with 30 minutes of inactivity by the user, that encountered a specific value (i.e., line item) shown in your reports. 9. Instance vs Visits Example ± Internal Search Report - 50 Instances , 30 Visits Searched ³Web Analytics´ 50 Instances means 50 times searched or Page reloaded 30 Visits means 30 different user sessions 10. Return Visits o Number of visits your site received from visitors that have previously been to your site. o Refers to the entire history of individual users' experience on your site. 11. Time Spent Per Visit SiteCatalyst calculates the Time Spent Per Visit metric by summing the difference in time between each page view in a visit Page A T1 Page B T2 T2 ± T1 12. Time Spent Per Visit o By adding together the time spent on each page, SiteCatalyst calculates the Time Spent Per Visit metric. o The last page in a path is not counted as part of the Time Spent Per Visit metric because the visitor does not access a page after the last page. 13. Why Measure Return Visits? o Identify the impact of your Web site's content on your visitors. o Gain a good indication of how interested your visitors are in your site's content and how serious they are about purchasing your product or service. For example, if only a few people return to your site, you may decide to redesign its content or update it more often. 14. Tracking Code o The tracking code is an alphanumeric value that uniquely identifies each campaign element and its exact placement on the Internet that ultimately brings an end user to your website. o It is also called a query string parameter. o In the URL, the tracking code is offset by the question mark, as shown in below. o 15. Referrer Report vs. Original Referring Domain Report o The Referrers report can be populated each time a visitor comes to your site from an external site, even if the visitor comes to your site multiple times during a visit.
