Your Traffic Report allows you to view how many visitors have been visiting your website, what pages have been getting the most traffic, and where that traffic has been coming from. 


To view your Traffic Report, log into your iHOUSEweb admin menu, click Traffic, then click Summary.


Last Month's Traffic

A line chart that shows a day to day breakdown of how many page views your website has received over the last 30 days. The green line shows the unique users that have visited, and the blue bar the page views. Hovering over a point will show you the exact number of users/page views for any day.


Where are your visitors coming from?

A pie graph that shows where your traffic came from over the last 30 days. It shows you what percent of traffic came from typing in your website address, from following a referral link, or from an internet search.


Most Viewed Pages

A list of the most viewed pages on your website over the last 30 days. It shows the page, the number of page views on that page, and the number of users that have visited that page.


Definitions

Page Views:

When someone views one of your pages. Every time a page is viewed it counts as a single “hit”. Only real people are counted by our system (including you), never search engine bots or spiders.


Unique Visits:

A single visit to your website usually consists of a single person coming in, viewing several pages, and then leaving. If a person remains idle on your site for more than 30 minutes and then comes back and starts browsing again, it counts as a new visit.


Referral Links:

Where someone came from to get to your website. There are 3 main classifications:

  • They typed in the address (or had your page bookmarked)
  • They clicked on a link in another website.
  • They found you by searching on one of the major search engines like Google or Yahoo.


Google Analytics

If our Traffic Report is insufficient for your reporting needs, we also make it convenient to include Google Analytics with your Elite Website. Click Here to view our article on Google Analytics

Why doesn’t Google Analytics Match up with Traffic Report Numbers?

Google Analytics and the iHOUSE Elite Traffic Report collect and sort traffic data in 2 distinct manners. iHOUSE ELITE Traffic Report will usually report a higher number of visits than Google Analytics for the following reasons.

  • Traffic report counts traffic the moment the request for a webpage is answered by our servers. Google Analytics only counts traffic after the entire page has loaded. Visitors navigating your website quickly will often be missed by Google Analytics.

  • Google Analytics uses a combination of cookies and Javascript. If either is disabled or blocked by the person visiting your site Google Analytics will not collect that visitors traffic data.

Google analytics is still a very useful tool, but it is important to realize that it cannot measure 100% of the traffic to your site.
