Here's a scenario:
We feel popularity of GNOME is increasing, more discussion threads are
on the site...but are people actually downloading any software? how can
tell? no one person can read all discussion threads to see what's
and then accurately alter a site's navigation/content to stir up some
usability of a site.
HitBox offers path-tracking that can give you a good view at how people
clicking around your site. it's an accurate measure of how many pages
are viewing per visit, and if your traffic comes from Bookmarks, or
Engines. i'm suggesting a HitBox because some discussions have
more of a marketing effort, and our HitBox site analysis suits a
our marketing efforts within our company.
just a suggestion, dont mean to be harping on ya if i sound that way.
