GrassBase User map thanks to Google Analytics

Grass Website HitsHow anybody can even think about running a website without using something like Google Analytics is beyond me. I’ve just done an update (last friday) of our species descriptions and am now tracking views of all pages thanks to this amazing facility. It’s really gratifying to see that we’re being usedby all sorts of people, all over the place.

    There are some I guess who are concerned that by running google analytics, it empowers google with detailed information about sites, their usage and users’ usage history… now for an online shop for example who puts goal conversions on their sales page, google all of a sudden find out which shops are successful – a quick analysis of why it is successful, and hey presto, that information is worth a lot to he online shops competitors…
    Now for those doing science research and free data sites, it’s super useful, that’s for sure!

    Thanks Tim,
    I can certainly see how it’s a bit risky for business, but if we can use something that’s so feature rich in science and data, as you say, why not!?!
    Google does stuff well, and they are certainly more open than some so I don’t mind too much if they have my data – I mean the UK government has my data and seems to be losing that left right and centre too!
