Jimdo Statistics 2.0: Faster, Cleaner, More Stable

The headline says it all: we rebuilt our statistics from the ground up, gave the interface a makeover and turbocharged your analytics! Now the statistics module will be more stable for all JimdoPro and JimdoBusiness users. Your website analytics will now deliver better insights on how visitors interact with your JimdoPage, at a glance. You'll be able to tweak your site to better engage visitors - and to deliver more effective search-engine-optimized content.

How to Activate the New Statistics

Sound good? To activate the new statistics module, log into your JimdoPage, go to 'Statistics' in the site admin bar, and click on "Go to your new statistics interface". Now click on "Activate statistics for your JimdoPage now." If you're already an active statistics user, you may be wondering what will happen to the statistics from before the changeover. No worries, they won't disappear - all your old statistics will be stored until the end of 2011 on your site, where you can download them as an Excel spreadsheet at the click of a button.

 

Here's a sneak peek at the new statistics interface:

What's New?

You might be wondering what's changed. Glad you asked!

 

Cleaner: The graphs are now clearer and easier to understand. Right away, you can spot visitor trends for your website. Of course, you can still filter visits by day, page, browser and more, just as you could before. Plus, the new version has a nifty little function for displaying the details: now you can zoom in on a specific time period.

Faster: The new statistics will load faster than before, even if your site generates a lot of data. Another improvement is the shorter refresh period: statistics are now updated every 24 hours, instead of up to three days in the old system.

More stable: The new statistics feature is built upon Google Analytics, which means it will be even more stable than ever.

Keep in mind: The new Jimdo statistics feature uses information from Google Analytics. In some countries, website owners are required to inform visitors of this fact in the form of a privacy policy. For this reason, a privacy policy may be added to your site when you activate the new statistics feature.

By the way, if you already use Google Analytics on your JimdoPro, JimdoBusiness or free site, you can keep using it -- no change for that!

    I found that the result provided from google analytics are very different from the provided by jimdo statistics. Where jimdo says 12 vititors Google says 2, 1, or 0.

    Someone else found this problem?

    Ramón, with the new statistics system it should be exactly the same as Google Analytics -- the old statistics system sometimes had discrepancies, but that should be fixed now.

    Powen, i know that the statistis should be the same, but , for me they isnt. I think that the problem is with GA. It says that yesterday i had 0 visit, and i know that i had at least 1 :)

    Thanks

    Ramón, one of our developers fixed this yesterday -- the problem was that if you had a Google Analytics code inserted *and* our statistics turned out, sometimes the codes would interfere with each other. It's repaired now so they no longer interfere, from now on you should see matching stats. Sorry about that!

    If it's faster and stable-that's good enough for me!
