Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing stats in Piwik, part of WordPress Plugins: Analytics (2014).
…Just like with Jetpack Site Stats and Google Analyticator,…you can get a lot of information about your…statistics from Piwik from using the WP-Piwik plugin and…accessing those statistics right from within your WordPress dashboard.…But in many cases you want to go deep…into your statistics and really understand what is going on.…And in those cases, you need to go to Piwik itself.…And because it's a self-managed application sitting…on your server, you can log into…it at any time and get the stats you want directly from any web browser.…
To get to Piwik, you can either navigate to the WP-Piwik page in…your dashboard, and then click on the…Piwik button that appears inside the overview.…Or you can simply go to your browser, go to wherever you installed Piwik.…So in my case, under the Piwik folder.…And then log in.…And once you are logged in, you get a full breakdown of everything…that's been happening on this site in the period of time that's currently available.…So here, you start out by seeing visits over times.…
