Total Page Views, Site Visits, etc.?

Post by Dr_jinG » Tue Mar 19, 2019 4:32 am

Hi All,

Is there some place that gives you the metrics on number of page views, site visits, and other statistics? Is there something that will show you the statistics of your site over time?

Thank you!

If you get a google webmaster account they will give you all kinds data specific to Google, Bing has similar service. Even while you are viewing the search results page if you are logged in it will give you data on search results for that query if iot's relvant. While it cannot give you overview of all traffic I like it better because it's more accurate. It's not been skewed by rogue bots etc.

What you want is Google Analytics.

There is an excellent official phpBB extension for it: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... analytics/

Once setup, you can then monitor via the Google Analytics web console or Android/iOS app. It is very powerful with customised reports, graphs, etc. You can even set it up to monitor keyword searching via the forum's search tool. And yes, it will filter out bot traffic too so you get genuine results.
