Why do I have an Analytic App?

The analytic app shows me how many visitors I have to this website, but more importantly, it shows me which walk descriptions are the most popular. This is important to me as I can get an idea as to the type of information the website visitors are interested in. This allows me to write future descriptions that are most relevant to visitors.
