Recently, usabilitytools.com published an interesting article. They asked 44 web analysts to answer several questions about web analysis and a web analyst and collected their answers.
One of the questions was:
What is the most important quality a great web analyst should have?
We decided to do a little analysis of these answers. The article shows a word cloud, which includes the words used in these answers. You may see the most common words they used.
It seems that the most important thing is to be good or even better, use web, use tools, have skills and qualities.
But also they need to be technical, curious, ask questions and not forget about people behind their analysis.
