I just started using Piwik!
I did a check for an answer before posting this. I apologise if it has been addressed.
- I wanted to ask if its possible to have the same domain hosting Piwik and also the destination URL?
Would that work? Or do I need to install Piwik in a sub-domain?
2a) I plan to create my own psuedo “URL shortener” by having the XYZ.co domain to redirect (using 301) to an external link. For example, the tracking link could be XYZ.co/shopping and the XYZ.co domain redirects the traffic to an external link like yahoo.com/shopping.html Is that possible? Will Piwik still be able to track the incoming and outgoing traffic?
2b) Based on the above example in (2a), I assume it is possible to have a customised word like “shopping” in the tracked link? [XYZ.co/shopping] Please let me know if that’s not possible.
Besides Ebay and MySpace, can I use Piwik to track links inside PDF files and Facebook posts? If yes, how?
Please advice on the above, thanks very much in advance.
PS: Opps! I got a Question #4 to add.
4) Do I need SSL cert for HTTPS in my Piwik tracking? If no, what about those destination sites with HTTPS URLs? Thanks again!
