Overview

In a recent upgrade to the WebTrends software, IN.gov has added the ability to track analytics within .Net and Java applications. IN.gov has defined two types of services for implementing WebTrends into applications. These include WebTrends Basic and Advanced Setup.

WebTrends Basic Setup

Feature Set

The features available in the basic installation will allow the agency to track visits to the application and create detailed reports with the information gathered. Basic installation of WebTrends will be provided at no-cost to the agency.

The standard reports available to the agency are as follows:

Marketing

  • Referrers
  • Search Engine Keywords
  • Visitors by number of hits

Site Design

  • Pages
  • Page View Trends
  • Entry Pages
  • Exit Pages
  • Browsers & Systems

Site Performance

  • Hits Trend
    • By Day of the Week
    • By Hour of the Day
  • Visits by Number of Pages Viewed
  • Visits by Duration

Additional reporting functionality and an explanation of each can be found in the WebTrends Training Manuals found at http://webtrends.in.gov.

Request Method

In order to request Standard WebTrends Setup, users must submit a WebTrends request at http://webmasters.in.gov. (Statewide Solutions -> WebTrends)

Setup Procedure

To setup an application for the default WebTrends analytics, the preferred method is to install the JavaScript piece of code in the common footer of an application. This allows for the page to load before the WebTrends code is executed. This also allows for an easy and common method to install WebTrends into an application. Once code is in place the developer will notify the WebTrends Administrator to complete the setup in the WebTrends Administration site.

WebTrends Advanced Setup

Feature Set

In addition to the features in the Basic Setup, WebTrends has the capability to track the actions of those who visit an application. These reporting capabilities require additional code outside the scope of the standard installation and will incur a time and material set-up fee.

Examples of this type of tracking include:

  • Ajax Interactions
  • Content Groups
  • Filtering
  • Form Actions
  • JavaScript Events
  • Link Tracking
  • Scenario Analysis

Additional reporting functionality and an explanation of each can be found in the WebTrends Training Manuals found at http://webtrends.in.gov.

Request Method

In order to request an Advanced WebTrends Setup, users must submit a New Project request at http://webmasters.in.gov. (Interactive Applications -> New Project)

Setup Procedure

Due to the custom features of the WebTrends Advanced Setup, the process will vary for each implementation. Once a request is received, Indiana Interactive will setup a meeting with the agency to discuss the requirements of the project and develop a custom setup procedure.

* WebTrends Basic Setup will be integrated as a part of the Advanced Setup.
