Campaign doesn´t seem to work


(larsen) #1

Hi,

I opened an URL like this:

http://www.example.com/?piwik_campaign=test

Now, I can see in the DB with

SELECT * FROM piwik_log_action WHERE NAME LIKE '%campaign%'

that there is a visit logged, but in Piwik I only get “No data for this table” when opening “Referers > Campaigns”.

How do I get to see something there?

Lars

Hi,
see http://piwik.org/faq/troubleshooting/#faq_51

I checked those faq entries once again, but it still doesn´t work. I have the entry in my piwik_log_action table, but only get "“No data for this table”.

Where in the database should be an entry so that I get data shown in Piwik?

Referrals are counted only once per visit, i.e., on entry. If you visited your site by direct entry, and then visited your site using an off-site link, without waiting 30 minutes and clearing your cookies, then both page views would have been counted as a single visit, with the direct entry as the referer.

If all widgets are showing “no data”, refer to FAQ http://piwik.org/faq/troubleshooting/#faq_58

I visited the site by entering the URL in my browser and was sure that noone from our IP had visited that site in the 30mins before.

Strangely, Piwik now shows data with my test campaign visit… and it´s from yesterday… style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif
Ummm… we have auto-archiving enabled (around midnight). I thought that would mean that the statistics are “archived”, but now I guess they are calculated at that time?

Please give me some insight =)

From private parties to organized trips over school breaks, you can organize and publicize any event using Piwik. As a social utility and networking Web site,Piwik makes a great platform for hosting and building your events.

Are there in the meanwhile some more informations available about the discribed issue?
We discovered the same behavior: It seems that the campaigns are tracked one day later.
