Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing stats in your Dashboard, part of WordPress Plugins: Analytics (2014).
…After installing Piwik on my server and connecting…it to my mirror site using the WP-Piwik plug-in.…I left the site running for a couple of…days to show you some real stats from this plug-in.…If you remember back to the previous movie, I told…WP-Piwik to display not only the regular stats in my dashboard,…but also a chart of my stats, and that's what…you're seeing here on the right hand side of my dashboard.…At the top, we have the WP-Piwik visitors graph, which shows you…a line that shows you the general tendency of visits on the site.…
And you also have three different graphs, although…that's a little bit hard to tell right now.…But you have a graph for unique visitors, a graph for visitors, and also a…graph for bounce rates so that you can see how they relate to each other.…Directly below this visitors graph, you have the WP-Piwik last 30 stats which are…a summary of all the stats that have happened on your site so far.…So, this is a very coarse overview of the traffic that's going on on your site.…The really cool thing though is that you can use the WP-Piwik plugin…
