Web Metrics Task Group

Who We Are

The Web Metrics Task Group is one of five task groups under the Federal Web Managers Council, an interagency group of senior government web managers working to improve government websites.

Our Goal

Our goal is to support the use of web metrics and other evaluation tools to improve government websites.

What We Do

The Web Metrics Task Group meets regularly to discuss ways web managers can use quantitative metrics to improve their websites. Current activities include:

  • Maintain the "Evaluating Your Website/Web Metrics" section of this website (Webcontent.gov)
  • Develop best practices for using web metrics tools and services
  • Suggest best practices for reporting metrics data
  • Investigate metrics software packages features currently in use
  • Share strategies for using web metrics for decision support
  • Develop and conduct surveys of the government web manager community to solicit opinions, identify trends, and collect best practices.

Who Can Join

If you’re a federal, state or local government employee interested in helping with these activities, please join us! Please note that the task group is limited to government employees and does not include contractors or other non-government individuals.
