How can I find statistics for a link or book that's been reused in several places?
It depends on the type of content - here's a handy table that explains it all:
|Item Type||Look for the statistics on...|
|Copied item (link, book, poll, etc.)||The guide that contains the copied item|
|Linked (or "reused") item||The guide that contains the linked item|
|Item in copied box||The guide that contains the copied box|
|Item in linked/reused box||The guide that contains the linked box|
|Item in copied page||The guide that contains the copied page|
|Item in linked/reused page||The guide that contains the linked page|
Keep in mind that we only track hits for links in Simple Web Links and Links & Lists boxes - no statistics are kept for links in Rich Text boxes.
Most people are interested in getting aggregate statistics for links. There are two ways to do this:
- Go to Statistics > Links, and search for the link title. It will give you overall statistics for that link, and also statistics for any place that link is being reused.
- If you know where the original link "lives", you can head to Statistics > Guides, and look for that guide. Then, click Links underneath the chart, and you'll be able to choose the link you want to see statistics for.
You will not be able to find aggregated usage statistics for Books, Events, or Files. The only way to get the aggregated usage statistics for a book in the system would be to run the statistics report for each guide the book is on and adding the statistics together.
