Statistics

Introduction

TGP Rotator includes an interface where you can view realtime statistics for your galleries. If you have assigned sponsor names you can see which sponsor galleries get the most clicks along with the most clicked categories and the top 10 most clicked galleries overall. Also from this interface you can reset the click counts, IP logs, and number of times displayed. Note that in order for there to be valid statistics you need to be using the go.php script to track the number of clicks each gallery receives.

Explanation of Statistics

On the Statistics page you will find 3 sections of statistics: Most Clicked Categories, Most Clicked Sponsors, and Top 10 Most Clicked Galleries.

The first section, Most Clicked Categories, shows you which categories are producing the most clicks. It is useful to know this information because you can then better target your site to the type of visitors that you get. If there is a specific category that does very well, you can display more of those types of galleries or add new categories with similar galleries. To generate this information the software groups all of the galleries in your database into their respective category and then totals the number of clicks each gallery has received. For example, assume you have a category named Hardcore and there are 10 galleries in your database in the Hardcore category. Each of those galleries has received 50 clicks, so the total for the Hardcore category would be 500.

The next section, Most Clicked Sponsors, shows you wich of your sponsors are producing the most clicks. This information can be very important and can assist you in deciding which sponsors you should continue to use on your page, and which sponsors to remove. Note that this feature will only work if you have assigned a sponsor name to each of your galleries. To generate this information the software groups all of the galleries in your database by their Sponsor name and then totals the number of clicks each gallery has received. For example, assume you have a sponsor named PlatinumBucks and there are 5 galleries in your database from the PlatinumBucks sponsor. Each of those galleries has received 25 clicks, so the total for the PlatinumBucks sponsor would be 125.

The final section, Top 10 Most Clicked Galleries, shows the top ten overall most clicked galleries in your database. Using this information you can determine how many sales are being generated by the clicks that are being sent to each gallery. You can then decide if the gallery is productive enough to be kept in the rotation, or if you want to try other galleries which may generate more sales.
