  • This form shows all information gathered by the system about the selected or all advertising campaigns (AC). The analysis form can be opened by clicking on the action menu button of the required AC and selecting the Advertising campaign analysis menu item (in the Advertising campaigns form).


    Find Allows to find advertising campaigns by their main parameters: ID, referer1 or referer2.
    Period Period of time for which the information is required. If any period is defined, the Statistics report contains the Period column.

    Clicking Search displays information about AC chosen by providing the search criteria in the Find field (i.e. by the ID or referer1 / referer2). Clicking Cancel invalidates the filter, e.g. displays information about all AC's.

    Report tables

    Since the system selects and displays a huge amount of statistical information, the latter is grouped in logical categories and presented in the tabbed property sheet. The property pages (tabs) contain the information appropriate to their titles.

    "Statistics" tab

    This tab comprises two tables: one with quantitative figures, while the other shows relative figures.

    The table with quantitative figures has the following format.

    Today Yesterday 2 days before Period Total
    New visitors
    Added to favorites
    Hosts (unique IP addresses)

    The table rows contain values of the parameters indicated in the left column, each for the date denoted in the table head. A Period column is only present if the filter field Period is set. The last column indicates the total number of events for each parameter.

    Each cell of the columns (Today, Yesterday, 2 days before, Period, Total) is split in two. The first cell (in green) shows the direct-hit value of the parameter, while the other cell (in blue) contain the on-return value.

    A return under an advertising campaign is a session opened for a visitor after they have previously maid a direct hit visit under this advertising campaign provided that no attempts have been made to enter the site under other AC's.

    The table of relative figures:

    Analytical parameters
    Visitors per day Average visitors per day for the entire gathering of statistics.
    Attentiveness Average hits per session, direct and on return.
    Intensity Average number of events occurred on direct hit (or on return) to the total number of visitors under the AC.
    New visitors Ratio of new visitors to all visitors under the AC.
    Returned Percent of visitors returned to the site after the first visit under the AC.
    "Graphs" tab

    This tab shows two graphs for the selected AC: the traffic graph and the event graph, each on daily basis. Below each graph is a legend containing links which can be clicked to view the event types.
