Here comes a wish:
We would like a report showing where traffic comes from to a single page. It would be very useful to us if there was a report showing us traffic or referrers to our pages. It would be a lot like a transition report showing where the traffic comes from on each page.
A simple example to illustrate: imagine there is a searchbox where you can put an url from your site (for example: www.startpage) and you get back a list of all pages visitors have visited before coming to this page (www.startpage).
And it would be great to be able to choose different dates (a day, week, month or an intervall).
Now you think we could get that information in the transition report, but no. Here’s why;
The transition report only works on the /index page which only includes a very very small portion of the visits to that page. So it is of no use to us unfortunately. The attached picture shows you the big gap between a page and its /index-page (in green frames) and that it is only the /index-page that has the transition-icon (in red frame).
Now you think we could get the information we need in the Visitor Log-report and export it, but no. Here’'s why;
Our site has many visits so in order to get the Visitor Log-report to cover a month we have to set filter_limit to several thousands (>10 000) and Piwik can’t handle that. Here’s an example that doesn’t work:
Now you think we could get the information we need under the tab Referrers and in the report Websites & Social, but no. Here’s why:
The report Websites & Social show traffic coming from outside your site, and it does not show which pages the visitors from an outside site/page visited on your site.
Since information about referrers already is collected by Piwik I hope it would be easy for you to expand and improve the report of referrers. I wouldn’t want to give you too much trouble.
I hope I could present our problem so you understood, but if you have any questions just let me know and I’ll try answering them.
Thanks for you time!
