View Full Version : Came from is dropping info!!??
06-27-2005, 11:35 AM
When I look at the standard view (country) for came from, I see that Sweden has made 23 pageloads and Canada 20. That's it. :!: Now, that tell me the origin for 43% in the logg. (I have a free account of 100 pageloads). If I, however, switch view to any of the other three: State/Region, City or ISP it becomes clear that the remaining 57 pageloads were made from the US (two different ISPs)!!! Why is the american pageloads removed from the country view??? :?:

A couple of hours after I posted above I took some screen caps within minutes of eachother. (Although I haven't had the opportunity to upload them until now.)
A total of 48 pageloads: http://www.tydal.nu/aasah/img/StatCountry.jpg
A total of 100 pageloads: http://www.tydal.nu/aasah/img/StatRegion.jpg
Today eight of those Maryland origins are still in my logg, and low and behold :? , my country view now lacks exactly 8 pageloads (those). On the other hand there are plenty of other american origins shown. Is this a local problem to Maryland or what else can it be? :?:
Has noone else had figures which doesn't sum to 100 in one Came From view, but do so in the rest?

However... I suddenly realised that this is labelled wrong... :oops: :oops: My figures have nothing to do with Came From which relates to where on the webb you were, but with the Country/Region/City/IP, ie where the visitors come from!! :oops:
Also, as the odd numbers are caught in every view except the Country view, it seems unlikely it would be the result of something in the browser, doesn't it? I can't really see why a security setting would block Country info but not more detailed info... (compare the images above).

Well, I thought you were looking at the wrong thing but I also though you were cross checking stats.
The city/region/isp stats are grouped simply on that field alone, not grouped by city within region within country.
SO if you have 2 hits from a city with the asme name, which may well be in 2 differnt regions or 2 differnt countries, they will be lumped together unfortunately. Many cities and/or regions occur with the same name in many different countries.
A better statistic would be to break into regions for a given country. ANd to break into cities for a give region withing a given country. However this is not what's being done at the moment.
ISP's are bit trickier, as the same ISP may be covering indeed more than one city, region or country, so really it's a logically independent statistic.
