Please provide charts showing trends in:

1) page views

2) number of users

3) The length of our tail. (Percent of page views by bottom %80 of least active users)

These charts would have similar look and feel as those currently provided on user reputation page.

Justification: we need a way to measure effectiveness of our efforts to increase site traffic.

  • Kirk, you might be interested in the data being posted at another site. I haven't checked to see whether a similar thing could be done for GIS@SE.

Moderators have access to these charts (and more, and always have). We are specifically requested not to share details ("analytics data is intended for moderators only; please don't share the specifics of this data in public"). However, meta questions judiciously asking for summary information probably could be answered by a mod without violating this trust.

FYI, we get daily and averaged statistics on

  • Well, I was going to suggest that this can be done using http://data.stackexchange.com. But when I go to that it crashes IE8. See the announcement here. Commented Feb 3, 2012 at 19:40
  • You might want to add that behavior to your question about no scrollbar with IE8. Yes, I believe you can get some of the statistics you want with the API, but many of them are not likely to be available (such as page views, visits, etc.).
