This is interesting. I haven't had in depth conversations with investors to date, but I expect this to change. In preparation, I have put together an excel sheet that tracks certain metrics on a monthly and weekly basis. I operate a site at vinoservant.com and I have an application in the IOS and Android Stores (VinoServant Wine Price Guide). Below are some of the metrics that I follow -

Number of Restaurant Reviews
Number of Wines in the Database
IOS and Android Downloads
New Visits and Unique Visitors
New Visitors vs. Returning Visitors
Pageviews and Average Time on Page
Pages Visited and Average Visit Duration
Bounce Rate
Search vs Referral vs Direct Traffic

I use Google Analytics so pulling this data together doesn't take a long time. I like seeing the numbers on a spreadsheet so that I can better analyze what is going on.

Why not ask them? :)

Reporting requirements are typically established upfront which should include the frequency and amount of data expected. Periodic overviews should just offer a summary but include access to more in-depth data for those few who are interested in digging further.

It depends on the stage you're at, whether you've taken any cash and what you may have already established up front with your investors.

It's always better to keep them in the loop on a regular basis and provide those metrics in a standard format, e.g., single page executive (investor) summary so they feel like if there's something they need to worry about - you'll inform them before worry becomes a problem that's also an unwelcome surprise.

You can gather all the stats you want, but at the end of the day revenue and profit are really the only ones that they'll care about.
