Web Traffic Drawbacks and Setbacks
One of the main problems encountered in web traffic analytics pertains to the information supplied by the site. This is more occurring in personal web blog and personal theme site or even social networks that provide a web-like support to the main site. The unprocessed facts and information taken from server logs, typically the whole general grouped data which includes rundown information for each individual file request, is most likely to be incomplete and somewhat noisy or mixed up. Individual clicks and logs have to be constructed from the data, a trouble made tricky by the being of proxy servers, firewalls, and caching and even traffic jammers or screeners.
Nonetheless it is achievable to use implanted scripts or cookies to follow individual visitors. However these simple and rudimentary styles, and strategies can be easily upset by browser settings, one more problem being born from the total volume of data coming in.
Large and multi level sites have thousands, hundred- thousands and if not millions of file requests each day. Thus large processing of file requests will again present another forms of difficulties both in terms of database storeroom or storage area and run-time constraints during analysis and will again ultimately cause another big problem the probability of measuring up of approaches and analytical techniques to massive archives.
As you can very well see, web analytics is series of gradual and procedural problem analysis which may very well take experts and specialist to solve these problems. As such if problems arises and eventually finds a cure the cure itself will again cause another setback, hence, a neat all problem solve approach is either impossible is the web is so dynamic in nature and need careful and detailed cure for every problem- a case-to-case solution approach.
