Statistics Module Introduction
The Statistics module lets you view website usage statistics. These statistics are recorded as visitors view the website, then compiled nightly into the Statistics module.
The Statistics module lets you know how many visitors are accessing your site, and lets you view this information by hour, day, week, or month. This module also provides information such as the average number of daily visits, page views, hits, and bytes transferred. Other useful information provided by this module includes top pages, referring sites, domains, visitors, browsers, searches, and search engines.
Knowing statistics about your site is very important, and this module tracks this information and presents it in a variety of ways. With this information, you can quantify the value of specific pages and modules, see what sites and search engines are bringing people to your site, how long they're staying, how many pages they're viewing, and what pages they're interested in. Knowing this information can help you tweak your site to increase visitors and keep them there longer.
