Description: I'd like to be able to log which pages in my wiki are most visited, and what addresses the viewers came from.

This information is already captured by the webserver log -- why not use that?


Also, give a look to this cookbook solution Cookbook.TotalCounter, which keeps track of how many times each page was viewed and counts the referers (from which site the viewers came from). Among these that you need other statistics are also available (users, browers, operating systems, locations of the users, web bots that crawl the site).

With regard to the webserver log: I don't have easy access to it as I'm not the webserver administrator, just the Wiki administrator. Personally, I use Cookbook.SimplePageCounter, but occasionally, I'd prefer something more detailed. --Henning August 30, 2006, at 07:03 AM
