Re: Volunteering on the UX front


We definitely have the user behavior data in piwik. Once Renoir has Piwik
upgraded and stabilized, the latest version of Piwik can give us a better
idea of the  entry points, user navigation flow (as it has flow diagrams),
bounce rate and  on page analytics telling us what a user is clicking on. I
do believe these are good metrics to look down the road once we have some
good volume of users on the site. But a first pass of the Analytics
dashboard should look into the high level metrics showing the number of
contributors /editors and readers. A second pass after beta could possibly
look into some kind of segmentation.

Here are my thoughts on what an Analytics dashboard should have in the
first two passes. Doug/ Julee do correct me if I'm missing something.

There are two segments to the Analytics Dashboard - Contributors and

1. Contributors/ Editors
- Number of edits for a given time period (day/week/month)
- Number of total registered users and active users.
- Number of articles that are in different stages of completion.
- Total number of articles on the site

2. Readers - people who come to read the content
- Number of pageviews
- Number of unique visitors on the site
- Traffic sources/ Referrers (search engine and social media)
- Top keywords
- Top articles being read

One of the key goals is to jump from 2k pageviews/day to 5k pageviews/day
in a month from now when we move to beta. This does depend on the number of
articles that have been marked as completed and ready to consume.
