Detailed Clicks counting towards popular

Detailed Clicks counting towards popular
Hi,

Because of the way I have set LinkSQL up I was wondering if it was possible to have clicks on detailed url clocked towards the popular status ? I have more of an article/review by editors than links per se and hence I would like a click to be counted (maybe weighted as a half) towards the popular stats. Does anybody know of any code or plug-in like this ?

Thanks, John

I think Laura has a plugin that counts the pageviews for detailed pages too.

If you just want to count clicks to detailed pages as well as clicks out, you can link to detailed pages using

jump.cgi?Detailed=<%ID%>

Note that you won't have any separate stats for clicks to detailed pages or out of the site but this would definitely be the easiest way to do it.

If you want something more complicated than that you would probably need a plugin.

Pugdog's detailed page plugin will count clicks to detailed pages which you could probably then combine with Hits in a global to get a popular list.

Hi thanks for that input. I'll look into it. I didn't know pugdog had this type of plug-in, hadn't seen it at ultranerds. What about your plug-in what does function does it provide ?

Thanks, John

My plugins collect extra information so that you can analyse click throughs (ExtraStats) or pageviews (SiteStats) by day, month etc. rather than for all time.

This thread has an attachment showing some of the available tags that you can use to show statistics with ExtraStats:

And SiteStats has similar statistics for pageviews/unique visitors.

This page has a few examples:

Hi Vishal,

thanks for your reference, looks great, I love the trend part. Nice (re) design by the way. I took a look at Laura's reference page and it looks as you say as if there is a wealth of functions hidden in there !

Cheers, John

Thanks Laura for your responses BTW Smile

PS : Vishal did you do a lot of modding for that page or are the functions included in the plug-in ?

OK

It's just that for 80 dollars (for the bundle) I need to be sure that a) I'm going to get good support like Andy and webmaster33 (which I can see Laura's clients get from her) and b) that the product provides interesting functions (which I can see from yours and Lauras pages).

So I'll be hopping over to PayPal...

Thanks Laura and thanks Vishal (Laura will most probably be thanking you separately Wink LOL)

The detail_page.cgi does a variety of different countings.

It counts detail_hits and site_visits separately.

If you wanted to count them together, you can just change the column the hits are written to in the script.

This plugin was designed for static sites, to dynamically display detail pages in either static mode, or dynamic mode, so they didn't have to be pre-generated.

The plugin is in the downloads area on GT's site ;) That still exists :)

A more current version may be posted to the forum, but I don't know. Search for detail_page and username pugdog in the search, and it should come up.
