Web Analytics

The "to-do" list for Virtual Radar Server is as long as my arm, but if you want to pile more work onto it then this is for you.

Web Analytics

Post by Dom2364 » Tue Aug 09, 2016 2:25 pm

Just had an idea where you could see things like the views, user agent list, trend graphs, things like that in some analytics viewer. Ideas for data that could be gathered:
  • Views/Unique Views for desktop, mobile and reports pages
  • User agents
  • Bandwidth usage
  • Page view time
  • Referer
  • Country (IP geolocation?)
You could also format the views into graphs for trends over time periods or popular days of the week/times of day. User agent could be separated into device, OS, browser and browser version. Crawler stats could be collected as well to see how often and which bots are crawling the site.
At the moment the only way I could see how many people were going on my radar was to go through the connections log which is very time consuming and doesn't provide much overall information on your radar traffic.
I write software and take photos.

You could just sign up for Google Analytics and then use the custom content plugin to add their JavaScript to the end of each HTML page :)
