Graphic statistics, analytics and reports for Joomla articles

Content Statistics provides integration to record and display statistics and rankings for Joomla's native article component, com_content, the default and most used content publishing extension for Joomla!

Content Statistics for Joomla offers you the possibility to display all kind of data and make all sort of reports of your Joomla content statistics. Make graphics of the popularity of your articles, category and section pages. Show rankings of your content items in any imaginable period of time, see what's hot on your site.

Content Statistics for Joomla's com_content goes beyond the simple "number of hits" feature, which is a total count and does not tell you the evolution of your articles. With this plugin, you can extend this functionality by adding the "time" variable: how many users saw this content in last hour? and in last day? and in the month of October? which are the top articles by a specific autor? what are the most visualized category pages? what are the most read articles inside the current category and its children categories within the last 2 weeks? How did this article evolved last week?

With Statistics and Rankings for Joomla, the possibilities are endless. There are so many options that you won't find a thing you can't show... and yet is so simple to use and configure. You don't need any developer skills or even be very familiar with Joomla, Content Statistics is incredible easy to use. You can now make as many reports as you want, and make them very specific or just global to see a big picture of what users watch and read in your com_content powered site.

With our Extended version you will be able to have a detailed full activity stream for com_content articles to know exactly everything that your users are doing. How did what, and when? What articles did John Smith read last month? how many times? With the full activity log reports you can see all the user activity stream for com_content and have partial or full time count reports. You can filter results by date range, component, type of action, specific item, specific user.
