Your Stats Page, Updated

We listened to your suggestions and made some changes to the way we present your stats.

Sometimes it’s the little things that count — especially when it comes to your stats. We’ve recently gathered some of your feedback and used it to work through a few renovations. Let’s take a quick tour!

Today First: Many of you wanted to make today’s stats a priority, with easy access to yesterday’s stats as well. So now when you visit a site’s stats, you’ll see the Days view first, with data displayed for the last 30 days. A quick click on the arrow will take you to yesterday’s stats, or you can click on any bar to view full stats for that day.

Click a bar or the arrow to switch days

See More Information at Once: If you use a wide screen, you’ll notice we’ve widened the display area and included three columns of statistics. Smaller screens still display one or two columns — whatever fits your device best.

Many of you wanted to be able to see more weeks and months worth of data at once, too. Now our Weeks view displays up to 30 weeks if that data is available. Similarly, the Months view displays data up to 30 months.

click-the-arrow More Summaries: Want to see your all-time top posts? Are you curious how many visits your site has had from different countries? If a stat has an arrow by its title, you can click that for summaries of various periods, including a new All Time tab.

Click on an individual post title to view its summary as well, including a list of likes. Want to see what that post looks like on different devices? Click the view icon to see previews. We’ve even included an edit link in case you need to update anything.

More Insights: To find some detailed all-time data for the whole site, click on Insights. You’ll find a summary table that shows your views per month since your site began.

all-time-views

Click Average per Day to find the average clicks per day in each of those months. And if you’d like to drill deeper to a specific month? Just click on it and you’ll be on the Months tab again, with all of the data for that month.

Follower Totals: You can now see your WordPress.com Reader followers, email followers, and totals for your social followers in one glance. It’s all on your Insights page, and we’ve included links for easy access to more details.

A Few More Updates: We’ve added a Last Updated Timestamp so you can see when our stats last ran. We’ve added a mini stats sparkline to your My Sites toolbar. And for those who want to analyze their data further, we’ve added more Download CSV options.

Thank You! To those who provided feedback, as well as to the developers and designers who worked through iterations, thank you. We hope these small changes add up to a great experience for you, because you’re more than just a number to us.

    Thank You for that. There is one thing I miss. Once upon a time, it was possible to view the entirety of the countries from where you have been visited. After the last update that vanished,is there any chance of getting it back? Still waiting for my Freshly Pressed.

    Thank you for continuing to make our experience richer. I am wondering if there is a stat that details the countries from where our Followers hail. I know you detail this for views but I would like to know where my followers are located. Is this possible at this time? I am still new to this and learning as I go. I am very happy with WP and recommend it to everyone.

    Thanks for the update on the updates. I have a question regarding the graphics on the ‘country’ section of the Stats page; used to be the flags of the countries were shown, but now all I see is a plain coloured rectangle denoting the country’s flag; wonder why this is. Thanks, look forward to your reply.

    I appreciate the three columns across so there’s not so much wasted space on my 15″ screen. But I still — urgently! — want the sparkline back in the top admin bar, the way it was before. As I’ve noted before, it’s like seeing how many bars I have on my cell phone. I want that steady activity readout visible at all times.
