I am quite new to the whole area of analytics so please bear with me.
I am having a bit of trouble understanding why the visitor log page on our evaluation server shows one row for each page I hit. It is only me browsing our web application. I have put the standard piece of async tracker script in the jsp header that is included on every page. When I browse around the application hitting different urls (within seconds of each other) I had expected this to be treated as one visit containing many actions but it looks to have been interpreted as many visits containing one action (the action shows different urls for each “visit”).
Where have I gone wrong or misunderstood ?
Hi. Thanks for the reply. I am using 1.11.1 and evaluating on Windows 7, XAMPP. I have not edited the config file. The Piwik server is on the same machine as the JEE app I am testing the tracker code in.
Im afraid I had to anonymise the data a little but the visitor log effectively says this:
My apologies. The config.ini.php file had been changed.
tracker_always_new_visitor was set to 1.
Seems pretty obvious now but I think we had assumed it would make subsequent visits count toward campaign hits so we could test a bit more easily from one machine.
