See the total number of views a page or blog post attracted in the page's header.
Click on the Viewtracker logo to display many page metrics and a graph with views and edits.
The tab "Viewers" shows who viewed the page and how many times (depending on your privacy settings).
The tab “Attachments” shows the number of attachment views and attachments.
So you spent precious time crafting an inspiring blog post or a helpful knowledge base article. Wouldn't it be cool if you could see how many viewers your work attracted (today, last week, since it was created)? Well, with Viewtracker, you can!
If Viewtracker is enabled globally (which is the default), you will see the number of views displayed on every page and every blog post. The information is displayed next to the page restrictions.
(For the sake of readability, we will write "page" instead of "page or blog post", but all options are the same with blog posts.)
Accessing the Content Report
Go to the Confluence page you want to analyse.
Click on the Viewtracker icon or the number of views.
Alternatively, you can access the Content Report via the page menu:
The Content Report opens as an overlay. It is divided into three tabs: Content, Viewers and Attachments.
We will describe all metrics in the different tabs in detail.
The tab "Content" is selected by default and contains the following data:
A graph of views and edits of this page over the last 30 days. Edits are marked as yellow vertical lines.
Elements of the Content Table
The table below the graph contains the following useful metrics:
Views since creation: The number of this page's views since it was created.
Views in selected date range: The number of this page's views in the selected date range. The numbers of "Views since creation" and "Views in selected date range" will be the same if the page was created only recently.
Unique Viewers: every individual user who has visited this page. Clicking on the three dots will open the tab “Viewers” (see below).
My views: The number of times you have viewed this page yourself.
Number of attachments: How many files are attached to this page.
Attachment views: How many times the attachments were viewed or downloaded. Clicking on the three dots will open the tab “Attachments” (see below).
Edits in selected date range: How many times the page was edited.
Contributors: How many Confluence users have contributed to the page content.
Page versions: The number of times a new version of this page was published.
The report also contains a row with social engagement.
Engaged users are users who have commented, liked or watched a page or blog post. With the standard privacy setting, you can see their full names and the date and time of their last visit by clicking on the three dots.
The tab "Viewers" will show you a table of all the users who have viewed your page in the selected date range. The table is sorted by “Last viewed” and displays the last time the user has viewed this page.
If your page or blog post is open to the public, you may also see the number of anonymous users (external visitors without a Confluence log-in) here:
If the tab "Viewers" doesn't show at all, this means that the Confluence administrator has set a higher level of privacy. Read more about the modes here: Data Privacy
The column “Views” lists the number of views this attachment has generated in the selected date range.
The column “Unique Viewers” lists the number of unique viewers that have viewed or downloaded the attachment. The three dots next to that number are only displayed if the data privacy allows it. A click on the three dots opens the modal dialogue for Unique viewers.
The column “Last viewed” displays the timestamp of the last attachment view or download.
Changing the date range
As a default, the data from the last 30 days are displayed. You can change that by clicking into the date field and selecting a different date range. All metrics will adapt automatically.
With Youtracker version 5.8 and above, you can also display a certain page's statistics by using the Page Analytics Macro. The macro can be placed on any page, so you can create dashboards with all the pages that are of special interest to you.
