Part 2 - Viewing Statistics in Live View
In our previous tutorial , you learned how to create a Link. This tutorial will show you how to use Taveo's realtime statistics feed to see what's happening with your links.
Before starting this tutorial, click here to open the Link page in a new tab. This page should look familiar, as we used it during the last tutorial to create a new link. This page is used to manage your current links, as well as create new ones. Today we're going to use this page to view realtime statistics. Find the link you created in your last tutorial. Under the Actions column you should see two blue buttons. Click the one on the left that looks like a small graph.
Click the Live Stats button to open Live View
You are now looking at realtime statistics for the link you created back in our previous tutorial. Here you can see various bits of information about recent clicks, including Time (in UTC), IP, Country and Type. Type can be 1 of 3 options:
- Human user on a regular computer, such as a Laptop or Desktop machine.
- Human user on a mobile device, such as a cell phone or Tablet.
- Automated / Robotic user, such as a web crawler (read more at Wikipedia )
You can click any of the Column headings on this page to sort by that column. If it was provided, the Referer column will provide the website that the user came from, as well as any search terms that were used to find your link. For example, if you used Taveo's links with an advertising server such as Bing Ads or Google AdWords, the keyword used to find your site will be shown here. You can use the search box on the left hand side to filter the results for certain terms.
The User-Agent column may seem foreign to some, but we display it here for our Power Users who are interested in that type of information. You can safely ignore this, as Taveo automatically parses that information on our aggregate Statistics page. For more information on User Agents, see Wikipedia's article on User Agents.
Note that right now, you must refresh this page to view updated statistics, we may automate this in the future.
