Who is Dailytics for Simple Analytics for?
If you run your own website and are a statistics enthusiast, you probably have a window with your Simple Analytics Dashboard open all day long... Unfortunately, I'd say Dailytics is not for you.
On the other hand, if you're not the kind of person who's looking at stats every day and just want to get a glimpse of "what's going on", or if you work with a team and would like to keep them up to date and motivated, then you might see value in our offer.
Finally, in case you run a digital agency and you built a site for a client, you can also setup a report, put your agency's branding there and surprise them with a lovely report. We can even send this report from your own address ([email protected])
How to build your email report connected to Simple Analytics?
Log in to your Simple Analytics Account, go to your "Account Settings". Scroll down to the "API access" section and create a new "key" for Dailytics. You should already have a "User ID" (a huge string that starts with "sa_user_id_"). Keep them safe.
Then come back to Dailytics and click on "Create report", choose "Simple Analytics" and put the "User ID" and "API Key" when we ask for them. We will load all the Domains we are able to fetch using your credentials, you simply need to choose the one you want to use.
As always, you will be able to add unlimited "widgets" and add filters to each of them.
The basic filters are page path and referrer but you will be able to add advancend filters too! See the official documentation (the "Query parameters" section) too learn about the different options you have to filter.
Let's see an example
Most visited products
If you have different types of content (products, articles, news, etc) you probably can differentiate them by the url (aka "page path").
You can then add a "Top 5 Products" widget, filtering by page path /products/*, or a "Top 5 News" widget, filtering by /news/*.
You could also add a "Most visited content from Google", filtering by the referrer. Or even a "Most visited Products from Google", filtering by the referrer AND the page path.
We'll add the author (if present) and the total pageviews next to each article.
Main traffic sources
You can use the Multi Chart widget and set each serie with one specific source you want to track. For example, you can monitor "Google", your "Newsletter" and "Facebook".
You can basically visualise any metric you want from Simple Analytics: Browsers, Countries, Cities, UTM campaigns, etc.
We've seen some customers using this chart to see very cool funnels too, using one serie with /products/*, the second serie with /cart and the third one with /thanks
See the photo of that brilliant article
Once again, you can add any filter you want to this widget (filter by source equals to 'Google' and see the image of the most visited page from Google)
It will also help you to check how your most visited content looks like when shared on social networks as we use the same "opengraph image" that those platforms use.
And a little bit of extra information: See the main sources of that page to understand how did it become the most visited content. HackerNews? Producthunt? Find it there!
