    As UX professionals, having a general understanding of the ways in which users experience a Web site can be helpful, but there is truly immense value in using data analytics to pin down exact data points that can inform the UX design process.

    In this article, I’ll consider how UX designers can leverage data analytics to enhance the user experience in a variety of ways.
