I’ve searched and can’t find explicitly what the ‘Top Referred Topics’ measures. Does it include when a topic is clicked via search engine, or just when shared by a user?
Top Referred Topics are the topics that have been shared most frequently by referrers. The number of clicks is the number of times people have clicked through from a referral link posted anywhere else on the Internet.
Curious on the method/reliability of the metrics in the dashboard
Would that number ever show as lower than a previous report?
i.e. a hosting site removes the link so report shows one lower click
Could a topic on the report be removed without being knocked off by a higher clicked topic?
Hawk or anyone who knows, Thank you
@joffreyjaffeux can probably answer that for you
This report is using
The query is basically:
- Count of all IncomingLink in topics with archetype being Archetype.default
- In a given category if specified
- Between two dates
- grouped by topic_id
- keep a limited amount of the highest counts
An IncomingLink is created on topic show:
The only operations that I’m aware of on IncomingLink are updating ip/owner. IncomingLink destruction happens only if you use destroy_task.
I might be missing a where clause, but AFAIK destroying a post won’t remove the IncomingLink record.
Thank you so much, seems the main dashboard report is for 7 days which was causing my confusion,
sadly I’ve looked at it many times and never figured that out till now
I’d like to suggest a note on that
