The purpose of the analytics audit is to make sure that the website analytics or application analytics is built and set up according to the best practices, that data is collected in a correct format, there are no security issues and that the data is reliable. Analytics audit is usually performed at the start of analytics cooperation into an existing analytics account/s.
Is Your Data Relevant and Reliable?
The website and application analytics platforms generally collect quite an extensive set of data with default settings. However, adding custom meta data about business-relevant information - i.e. products and services, product categories, teams, price categories or content categories - usually makes the data more relevant and easy to understand. The audit looks into how relevant the data is and gives results as a set of suggestions.
Data accuracy and consistency are necessary for a useful analysis. There may be several issues that cause inaccurate data. Typically, websites with single-page design, react/ajax technologies or multi/sub-domain environments may cause issues that create inconsistencies.
Legality and Data Security
The benefits of analytics platforms and tag management systems are their easy integrations to other tools. Care, however, is needed to ensure that no business data is leaking, or that data under GDPR is not used illegally. Analytics audit looks into integrations and produces a report on overall systems that have access to the data.
