Meaningful google analytics reports

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.

Solution for deluge of daily emails?

So way back in "the day" (eight or so years ago), our employee/student email inboxes were routinely deluged with 40+ individual email messages per day due to the "campus-wide" email lists being open for anyone here to send messages to.Enough people eventually decried the situation, so we came up with an email/website "publication" that was basically akin to a "daily digest email" of what were originally individual messages.This was highly successful and took a large part of the burden off of…See More
