Key figures

Sometimes referred to as the management overview, this section presents a quick overview of your site's traffic and performance.

The information shown is:

Visitor Details

Details about the top visitors, these are:

You can set the number of visits to show details for by running setup in advanced mode or editing the configuration file manually.

Visits of indicated number of pageviews

For each indicated range of pageviews this overview shows how many visitor sessions made that many pageviews. This is an indication of how much visitors stay on your site.

Pageviews per directory

This section shows the total pageviews in all the files in and below a particular directory. This must not be interpreted as pageviews to the indicated directories.

Pageviews per page

Shows for each page listed how often it was visited.

Pageviews per first page

For each page listed this shows how often it was the first page seen during a visit to your site.

Pageviews per last page

For each page listed this shows how often it was the last page seen during a visit to your site.

Searches on own site

Shows for each query listed how often it was used and how many click-throughs were made on which result page.

Note: the click-throughs also count clicks on links that were not part of the search results.

Referrer Domains

This section lists all the referrers to your site grouped by referring domain name and sorted by the number of visitors that were sent to your site. Referrers are usually search engines and pages containing links to your site.

Per referring domain name we list the number of pageviews that were made by those visitors, the number of carts they created and the steps in your sales path that were made by those visitors.

This section basically allows you to see the quality of the visitors you are getting from each referring domain and by implication how well each referrer performs.

Referrer URLs

This section is identical to the Referrer Domains section except that it reports the results for each referring URL.

Total Searches per Search Engine

Shows how often each listed search engine was used to find your site.

Queries per Search Engine

Lists the queries made on search engines sorted by the number of times that they were used. For each query we show, if possible, which type of query it was, i.e. for a web page, an image or something else. If possible we also show the starting point of the range of resuls in which the page was found. An indication how deep the user went into the search results. If empty or 0 this usually indicates that it was found in the first page of results. On Google this would typically be results 1 to 10 of a query. Any other number indicates how many results were skipped. On Google a 10 would mean that your link was on the second page of results, the page starting with result number 11, i.e. 10 results were skipped.

Individual Search Terms

Shows how often a particular word was used in a search on one of the known search engines.

Pageviews per TLD

Lists the number of pageviews made from each top level domain.

If you have set IP numbers of visitors to be resolved to DNS names (the default setting) StatEye will attempt to determine the top level domain (TLD) of each visitor.

One can attempt to determine the country of origin of a visitor with this information, for example a .nl TLD probably means The Netherlands. But a .com or .net TLD might mean the visitor came from the U.S.A. but there is a good chance that that is not the case.

A large number of IP addresses does not resolve to a DNS name, for those the TLD will be unknown. Some IP numbers even resolve to incorrect DNS names.

Pageviews and Visits per Rendering Engine

Lists the number of pageviews and visits per rendering engine.

Browsers generally use a rendering engine to display pages. Different browsers may still use the same rendering engine. For example Firefox, Mozilla and Netscape all use Gecko. The major rendering engines are:

Pageviews and Visits per Browser

Lists the number of pageviews and visits per browser.

Analysis of the user agent string generally allows us to determine which browser a visitor was using. StatEye aggregates this data into totals per browser and per browser version (next section).

Pageviews and Visits per Browser Version

Lists the number of pageviews and visits per browser version.

Pageviews and Visits per Operating System

Lists the number of pageviews and visits per operating system. In this section the totals are aggregated into operating system families, such as Windows, Macintosh and Linux.

Pageviews and Visits per Operating System Version

Lists the number of pageviews and visits per operating system version. We use the operating system as indicated in the user agent string. These are some important OS strings and the OS they indicate:

Windows NT 6.1Windows 7
Windows NT 6.0Windows Vista
Windows NT 5.2Windows XP Professional
Windows NT 5.1Windows XP
Windows NT 5.0Windows 2000
Win 9x 4.90Windows Millennium Edition
Windows 98Windows 98
Mac OS XMacintosh OS X
LinuxLinux (all distributions)

Pageviews per Date

Lists the number of pageviews per date.

Pageviews per Hour

Lists the number of pageviews per hour of the day. Totals per hour for all the days in a report.

Technical Information

This section contains a number of technical details. Such as which version of StatEye and the definitions you are using, which configurations you have set, an overview of the analyzed log and some information about the process itself.
