What are Statistics used for?

Your Web site's Statistics function allows you to request statistical reports regarding visits to your Web site. While it isn't possible to view email addresses, gender, age or other personal information about visitors, you can use the reports to view how many visits your site has received, which parts of your site are being visited, how visitors found your site, etc. This information can be used to improve the navigation of your site, to fine tune submission to search engines, and to otherwise make your site more effective.

Request a Report
From the Administration home page, click on the blue text of your sitename. In the secondary navigation menu, click on "Tool Box". Click on "Website Statistics". To request a report, select the report to generate under "Action". The "Action" option asks what type of statistical report to generate.


Select the pages that the report will be requested for under "Pages". The "Pages" option allows you to specify the pages for the statistical report. To select multiple pages, hold down the CTRL key on the keyboard while clicking on other pages. If "all" is selected with other pages, the Site Administration will request the statistical reports on all pages.


The "The number of most recent visitors to display" option is linked with the "Most Recent Visitors" report. When the "Show All" or "Most Recent Visitors" statistical reports are requested, enter in the number of most recent visitors that you want the report to display. The default setting is the last 10 visitors.


Select the date range that you want to request the report on under "Date Range". This option allows you to specify the time period of the statistical reports. If the "Start Date" is left blank, the Site Administration will begin the statistical reports from the beginning of your recorded statistics. If the "End Date" is left blank, the Site Administration will end the statistical reports to the current day. Statistical data for the current day will not be available until the next day.


When done configuring your options, click on "Submit Request" to request the statistical reports.
