Stats / Statistics Plugin

The primary purpose of the stats plugin is to:
- Capture information for use in the backend.
- Show lists such as Most Viewed Movies to show on the front-page of the site.

The stats plugin shows tabulated information based off of tracking individual website hits by members. It does not account for any visits from people who are not signed into the site, and does not account for any tour views.

When a system takes a stats snapshot, it takes a look at stats based on "Snapshot Length", configured under Plugins -> Statistics -> Configure. If a Snapshot length is set to 60 days, these stats are based off of the accesses for the last 60 days (or sooner if the site is new).

What Individual Stats are Available

Here is some more information about what each of these individual stats do. Stats marked with an asterisk (*) are tabulated in different ways (such as total, raw, unique). See the bottom of this document for more information on what this does.

1-3: Most Viewed Updates *

This shows which updates are most visited by members.

4-6: Most Viewed Media Types *

This will show which media types are most accessed from members. This is useful if you are looking to see if you're using an old format such as WMV has much use from people accessing your website.

7: Most Active Users

This shows which users are clicking through on your site the most. Each pageload counts as an individual access.

8-10: Most Viewed Movies *

This shows which updates are most visited by members AND either have movies, or belong to the category "Movies"

11-13: Most Viewed Photo Updates *

This shows which updates are most visited by members AND either have photos, or belong to the category "Photos"

14-16: Most Viewed Models *

This shows which model is most viewed. This is tabulated by counting set pageviews where the model belongs to that specific scene.

17-18: Monthly Visits *

This counts how many times that members have accessed pages throughout a month, broken down by week.

19-20: Weekly Visits *

This counts how many times that members have accessed pages throughout a week, broken down by week.

21-22: Daily Visits for the last month *

This counts how many times that members have accessed pages throughout a day, broken down by day.

23-25: Most Viewed Categories *

This shows which categories are most viewed. This is tabulated by counting set pageviews where the category belongs to that specific scene.

26: Most Searched Keywords

Shows what is searched for the most on the site.

27: Most Favorited Updates

Shows which scenes have been favorited by users the most.

28-30: Least Viewed Updates *

Shows which scenes have been least viewed by users.


Some more information about what total / raw / unique means:

Total: This stat provides tabulates info for all pageloads, regardless of whether or not the user is clicking through page 1 of an update, or page 100.

For instance, if user [USER] views a gallery, and clicks through

  • Page 1 of the gallery
  • Page 2 of the gallery
  • Page 3 of the gallery
  • Goes back to Page 1 of gallery

The system will count this as four hits, to page 1, 2 and 3, and back to 1.

This is useful for viewing clickthroughs. If a scene has a lot of accesses under "Total", it means that there is more engagement on a scene / gallery.

Raw: The stat tabulates info for only the landing page of a scene.

For instance, if user [USER] views a gallery, and clicks through

  • Page 1 of the gallery
  • Page 2 of the gallery
  • Page 3 of the gallery
  • Goes back to Page 1 of gallery

The system will count this as only as two hit, as the client has accessed the front page of the gallery or movie twice.

This is useful for getting an idea of how many times people are going to a scene and viewing the scene. It also factors in for people going back and re-watching a scene.

Unique: This stat counts the number of distinct users that have accessed a specific page or scene.

For instance, if user [USER] views a gallery, and clicks through

  • Page 1 of the gallery
  • Page 2 of the gallery
  • Page 3 of the gallery
  • Goes back to Page 1 of gallery

The system will count this as only as one hit. No matter how many times a user accesses a specific scene, it only counts as one hit.

This is useful to see how many individual members are visiting a scene.
