What can I see in Awstats?

Awstats provides many methods to track and monitor the visitors to your website, what they see, and where they come from.  Below is a summary of the many options available in Awstats:

  • Visitor history - This section shows how many people visit your site and is sorted by hour, day, and month
  • Duration of visits - This section shows how long people visit your site, and is important as it will show if visitors are staying for only a few seconds, or are staying long enough to read multiple pages
  • Pages viewed - Here you can see which pages are the most popular on your site
  • Origin - This section in Awstats shows if your visitors visit your site directly from the link, from a search engine, or from another source
  • Search Information - Displays what keywords visitors are using to visit your site
