I was reading an article about web analytics and i came through these two topics (logfile analysis and page tagging), but i was unable to understand these terms exactly.Can anyone help me to understand these terms in a simple way?
We largely use page tagging rather than analysing raw log files. However, what I would say is that consistency is key. So if you use one or other, or both, make sure to compare like with like i.e. don't look at page tagging results one week then log files the next. It's unlikely that they'll match ... and you'll think you have flucuating traffic.
Not important to which you decide to use, but important when comparing week on week stats.
