Smart Site Provides QC and Traffic Analysis

Big Picture Technologies Inc. today announced its newest Web site management tool, Smart Site 2.0.

Smart Site 2.0 uses a dynamic set of tools for Web site scanning, mapping, reporting and usage analysis that is required to help maintain a well balanced, error free and accessible Web site.

The distinctly non-Windows interface gives users a graphical view of information to show the structure, content and status of the site with a comprehensive, intuitive layout. Smart Site 2.0 will ship in early November and will also be available as an evaluation version from Big Picture Technologies Inc.'s Web site.

Smart Site 2.0 can be employed to track broken links, slow downloading pages, missing files, HTML errors and spelling mistakes (including a multi-language spell checker). Accommodating differing preferences, the mapping feature enables users to chart a site in either spider, hierarchical, page or concentric views. The reporting function delivers comprehensive, customizable reports in either HTML or text format, adding even more functionality and customizability.

Smart Site 2.0's traffic analysis feature provides a way to examine information about the usage and the potential effectiveness of a Web site. With access to the server log, this feature charts the traffic to a Web site and reports on most and least accessed pages. Smart Site 2.0 also displays traffic sourcing by demonstrating the amount of traffic generated by referring links and identifies each visitors browser type.

Site administrators can easily identify necessary changes by using the reporting function, which may be customized to view hyper- linked graphics, HTML and text formats, and page summaries with statistics.
