New Feature – Google Analytics in Aurora/WordPress

 

As part of ongoing website services, Student Affairs IT has managed a portfolio of statistics for all websites in the Division of Student Affairs. Prior to 2014, SAIT hosted all Division websites in-house and provided access to web stats using a tool called AW Stats. After websites were transitioned to the central Aurora/WordPress web content management platform, we moved web stats tracking into Google Analytics.

We have managed this portfolio for several years on behalf of the Division and provided access or reports when requested. Recently, we enabled a feature in Aurora that connects the Google Analytics data from our portfolio to individual Student Affairs websites. When logged into Aurora, a “Statistics” widget should now appear on the Dashboard:

Google Analytics in the Aurora/WordPress Dashboard

Click the blue button to “See All Stats” which will give a more in-depth view of visitor behavior, page performance, and referral sources in a 1-month, 3-month or 12-month time frame. These insights can be helpful for website managers to make decisions on how to improve their sites or to follow visitor trends over time.

If you do not see this Stats widget in your dashboard — contact Evelyn in SAIT (evelyn.lang@uconn.edu) to inquire about this. It is possible that we don’t have access to your web account to connect it.
