How to get monthly pageviews programatically? Preferably using Data Explorer

Hey there community!

By any chance has anyone wrote a query using Data explorer to fetch monthly pageviews number?

Is there any other programatic way to get those numbers than manually accessing my dashboard?

This is the query behind the Consolidated Pageviews report, I hope it helps.

-- [params]
-- date :start_date
-- date :end_date

SELECT
    ar.date,
    CASE 
      WHEN ar.req_type=6 THEN 'Crawlers'
      WHEN ar.req_type=7 THEN 'Logged in users'
      WHEN ar.req_type=8 THEN 'Anonymous users'
    END,
    ar.count AS views
FROM application_requests ar
WHERE req_type IN (6,7,8)
    AND ar.date::date BETWEEN :start_date::date
	AND :end_date::date
ORDER BY ar.date ASC, ar.req_type

Perfect! That helps a bit!

Is it possible to fetch this number:

This query lists the total number of pageviews over the period.

-- [params]
-- date :start_date
-- date :end_date

WITH data AS (
    SELECT
        ar.date,
        CASE 
          WHEN ar.req_type=6 THEN 'Crawlers'
          WHEN ar.req_type=7 THEN 'Logged in users'
          WHEN ar.req_type=8 THEN 'Anonymous users'
        END AS Pageview,
        ar.count AS views
    FROM application_requests ar
    WHERE req_type IN (6,7,8)
        AND ar.date::date BETWEEN :start_date::date
    	AND :end_date::date
    ORDER BY ar.date ASC, ar.req_type
)

SELECT Pageview, SUM(views) qtt_views
FROM data
GROUP BY Pageview

Got one more question actually. Maybe that won’t be much of a hustle.

Is there a way to get the results in following format so using sum:

Yes, it is possible, in this case, you need to adjust the format of the date field first and then adjust the group by. Below is the adjusted query.

-- [params]
-- date :start_date
-- date :end_date

WITH data AS 
    (SELECT
        date_part('month', ar.date) AS month,
        date_part('year', ar.date) AS year,
        CASE 
          WHEN ar.req_type=6 THEN 'Crawlers'
          WHEN ar.req_type=7 THEN 'Logged in users'
          WHEN ar.req_type=8 THEN 'Anonymous users'
        END AS pageview,
        ar.count AS views
    FROM application_requests ar
    WHERE req_type IN (6,7,8)
        AND ar.date::date BETWEEN :start_date::date
    	AND :end_date::date
    ORDER BY ar.date ASC, ar.req_type
    )
    
  SELECT 
    month, 
    year, 
    sum(views) AS qtt_views
  FROM  data 
  GROUP BY year, month
  ORDER BY year DESC, month ASC
month year count
1 2021 1000
2 2021 500
1 2020 1500
2 2020 2000
3 2020 2500
