Understanding Data Mining

Data Mining is different than other reports. Whereas Custom and Standard Reports provide a general overview of the various statistics available from your log files, Data Mining takes this general information a step further and provides you with fully-detailed reports that allow you to drill-down and analyze your statistical data. These reports are priceless for tracking customers through your ordering process, for seeing which marketing campaigns are providing the highest return on your investment, or for a variety of other tasks requiring a large-scale, fully detailed analysis of your website traffic.

You can begin to perform data mining by either clicking on Reports on the main tool bar and then selecting Data Mining from the left tree view, or by clicking on the data mining icon next to items returned in a report (where applicable).

Refer to the Report Reference in the left tree to learn more about the specific reports.
