Web or Software Usage Analytics


  • St. Cloud State University utilizes Google Analytics to provide free web site analysis and reporting on how web sites are being used. 
  • Monthly reports are available for departments and offices to receive which include information about top pages within those sites.
    • These reports are sent from Google Data Studio.
    • Standard reports show a line graph of all site pageviews, with most recent month's data as well as the previous time period's data for comparison. Data is also shown for the top 25 visited pages in your site listed below main headings and contain similar information for each page shown.
    • Customized reports can also be created, tailored to include data you want to see.
