I plan on adding some basic analytics to a site I'm working on. Piwik would be overkill as I only plan on logging what pages members have viewed, along with the time and other basic information.
But what would be the most efficient way to go about it? This site is on a shared hosting account, although it is a reliable shared hosting company, and it can handle a couple of thousand members accessing a forum etc without any problems.
Personally I'm thinking of using the $log API variable to store this information, but was curious what others thought.
I was looking over my Analytics data for my site the other day, and I noticed some of the pages people are landing on have a strange relative url that's not part of my url scheme.
Example url: thesharktankproducts.com/categories/food
Weird url showing up in Google analytics: thesharktankproducts.com/index.php?it=categories/food
Both urls are showing up in Analytics, so it's not a question of the correct one not showing up.
I have deduced that almost all the traffic to these weird urls is coming from Yahoo and Bing, so it may be something I need to fix with them. But, still, it's weird that this url A) works and B) somehow got into the search page results at Yahoo and Bing.
Has anyone seen this before? Should I set Redirects for the pages this is happening on? Is there another way inside PW to fix this?
