Web Analytics within an Organisation
I was kindly invited by Nicolas Malo to speak at the Lille Web Analytics Camp on last Wed 21st Mar, presenting as part of the English stream of talks.

New or Returning, Visits or Visitors
Everyone likes to know if the people visiting their website are seeing it for the first time or are regulars.
