Page view metrics from discourse compared to GA


(Emma Furtado) #1

hi all,
Does anyone have any insight into page views metrics?

Discourse total page views is about double what google analytics is reporting. I’m brainstorming on possible causes. I’m guessing because we have told google to ignore internal IPs. But still, double seems a bit high.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Emma

Hi Emma,
In Discourse, any request that reaches our servers and incurs significant work will be counted as a page view. So all requests for content, such as a list of categories, topics, or posts, count as page views, whether by a human or a web crawler.
