Some thoughts on web analytics using our work on analytics

Jun 13, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I thought this was a good idea - using analytics to validate work on analytics. "We think this is a 'hot topic' but is it? Can our analytics help us to gauge interest?" For me, of course, the most interesting question is whether analytics can distinguish between a 'hot topic and something useful - but I digress. The result? Well though "it is apparent that Twitter is the main way our posts are being shared. Linkedin comes in second with delicious and google+ also generating a few 'shares'." I can't tell from the text whether people are actually clicking and commenting on the analytics posts. And the images are totally unreadable - maybe we can get some more useful images! Related (and a much better example of how to share a graphic in a blog post) is Mohamed Amine Chatti's SWOT analysis oanalytics.
