Global event sponsors Coremetrics, SiteSpect, and Web Analytics Demystified collectively donate $4,500

The global sponsors of Web Analytics Wednesday, the largest social network of analytics professionals focusing on Internet and mobile web marketing efforts, have made a donation of $4,500 to Operation USA on behalf of network members worldwide. The donation was made equally by Coremetrics, the leading provider of online marketing and business optimization solutions, SiteSpect, the leading provider of non-intrusive multivariate testing and behavioral targeting technology, and Web Analytics Demystified, the world's most recognized and respected web analytics consulting group.

"I am incredibly proud to know that Joe Davis, CEO of Coremetrics, and Eric Hansen, CEO of SiteSpect, share my belief that supporting charities, especially in such difficult times, is one of the greatest things we can do," said Eric T. Peterson, CEO of Web Analytics Demystified. "The Web Analytics Wednesday network has 4,500 members worldwide, and this donation of one dollar per member will in some small way support Operation USA's ongoing efforts to provide relief, reconstruction, and development aid."

"SiteSpect is pleased to support Operation USA as a global sponsor of Web Analytics Wednesday," said Eric J. Hansen, founder and CEO of SiteSpect. "While the Internet has proven to be recession-resistant, there are many people who are in need of a helping hand in an increasingly fragile world economy. We're happy to lend our support to an excellent organization that is providing relief in difficult times."

Founded in 1979, Operation USA helps communities alleviate the effects of disasters, disease and endemic poverty throughout the world by providing material and financial assistance to grassroots organizations that promote sustainable development, leadership and capacity building, income generating activities, provide education and health services, and advocate on behalf of vulnerable people. Operation USA specializes in reaching vulnerable populations who are in the greatest need, yet who are often ignored by governments and larger aid organizations.

"I hope this donation serves as a reminder that we can all choose to make a difference in our communities and abroad," said Joe Davis, CEO of Coremetrics. "Coremetrics employees and I are proud to stand with SiteSpect and Web Analytics Demystified to support Operation USA's efforts to reduce suffering in the world."
