From Library Journal:

Everyone has a counter on their web site nowadays, but no one knows what the numbers really mean. The commercial market is grappling with the evaluation of these statistics as they try to calculate advertising revenues. But folks in the nonprofit sector also have to understand the numbers?if a library wants to argue for additional funds to expand service, for example, its director needs to measure use. The discussion here ranges from analyzing transaction logs, to a review of available tools and services, to applications in marketing and advertising.
