English abstract

The analysis of web usage information is an important cybermetric tool for describing the visits and visitors to a website, and their navigation behaviour, which can help in designing the structure and contents of the webpages. The paper describes the main concepts (log file, session, user) and introduces both manual and automated techniques to study the log files. Finally, the counters and trackers are described, paying special attention to the statistics offered by two systems:Google Analytics and StatCounter.

El análisis del consumo de información en la web es una importante herramienta cibermétrica para conocer no sólo las visitas y visitantes que recibe una sede, sino también los patrones de comportamiento, lo que puede ayudar a diseñar su estructura y contenidos. Se describen los conceptos básicos (ficheros log, sesiones, usuario) y se presentan técnicas manuales y automáticas para el estudio de los ficheros log. Por último se describen los contadores de visitas, ofreciendo un estudio comparativo entre las estadísticas ofrecidas por dos sistemas: Google Analytics y StatCounter.
