In A Hurry?To get the most from this report at a glance, be sure to look at the first few entries in these sections every month:
Most web stats reports tell you about the number of hits, rather than number
of page views. The number of hits tells you how many objects have been viewed on a page,
including the page itself. If a page has 5 images on it then one view of that page will register
6 hits, so report numbers tend to be inflated and confusing.
General SummaryThe most useful number in this section is:
Successful requestsThe number of times a page was successfully requested (usually by someone using Internet Explorer). This is the total number of pages viewed during the month - a good guide to how busy your web site is.
Weekly ReportShows you how busy each week was this month.
Daily SummaryShows you how busy each day was on average this month.
Domain ReportThe location of each computer that requested a page from your web site.
This report is broken down by the last part of the domain names (.com, .nz or .au etc). This is a good indication of how many Kiwis, Aussies or Americans are looking at your web site.
Note that the following are search engine spiders: googlebot, inktomisearch, msnbot, and just about anything else that contains the word "bot".
Organisation ReportSame as the Domain Report, but sorted by highest number of requests.
Referrer ReportWhen someone clicks a link on another web site which takes them to your web site, this is known as a referral.
This report shows you the pages on other web sites that are generating a lot of your traffic.
Referring Site ReportA summary of the Referrer Report by domain name. Be sure to look at this every month - it gives you a good feel for where your traffic comes from.
Search Query ReportOne of the most important reports, this counts the number of times someone types a particular keyword phrase into a search engine and then clicks the link to visit your web site.
Want to increase your traffic by hundreds of new visitors every month?
Status Code ReportShows you a total count of all the statii for every page request. The great majority should be "OK". If not please call me - we may need to fix something.
For anything that's not "OK", see the Failure Report for the reasons why.
Failure ReportA list of requests for files that could not be shown successfully.
Mostly this is mistakes when people type a web address into their browser, or hackers looking for back doors into the web server.
Request ReportThe "Request Report" shows you how many times each page on your web site was successfully viewed during the month.
If your site has more than one page, have a good look - this can tell you a lot about your website traffic and your business.
Keep an eye on this report every month and you can get a feel for which pages of your web site are the most popular.
Search Engine SpidersA search engine spider (or robot) is an automated program used by search engines like Google or Yahoo to scan the pages of your web site so they can build their giant indexes.
robots.txt fileThis file is used to give instructions to search engine spiders. It tells the spider which pages it is allowed to visit.
