I am curious what other reports have been presented to stakeholders within an institution. I have provided reports on the twelve metrics but this seems less than meaningful to make strategic decisions. Any best practices for google analytics reports that anyone can suggest?See More

Sorry...I mistook this for a social networking site. Guess I took the social part too seriously. :-)

I posted them b/c THAT is what was on my mind this week. Not web, not Chrome, not CMS. Many of those on this site share experiences with each other outside the realm of web development.

However, I have removed all offending blog posts.
