"Web Analytics is the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of Internet data for the purposes of understanding and optimizing Web usage." (Digital Analytics Association official definition)

A discussion from the VIVO dev mailing list begins: "As the profile of VIVO implementations grow, having the ability to analyze web stats and communicate broadly about them will become more valuable. Maybe a topic for the 2014 Implementation Fest? Even if we're just sharing our GA tips and tricks, not having cycles to test out these alternatives."

Even worse, most visualizations require the user go through the mental exercise of interpreting the results. Site Ai does the analysis for you and presents the information in plain English."
