Web Analytics Demystified

Congratulations to our winner! Here’s a choice bit from the winning post:
You are looking, first, for pages with the highest bounce rate. Remember bounce rate measures this from a costumer’s perspective: I came, I puked, I left. Or technically speaking: single page view sessions.
Pages with a high bounce rate are not delivering on the promise that is driving customers to your site. The ones in the top ten Entry Pages report need your attention.
The top two runners-up in public voting were:
