How to view popular and unpopular pages on Cloud Confluence? Edited

Hi!

I've been looking into the documentation that you have in regards to Confluence use.

The article below seems great but the links to the plugins are broken:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf54/confluence-user-s-guide/advanced-and-special-uses-of-confluence/developing-a-knowledge-base-on-confluence-wiki/additional-add-ons-for-a-knowledge-base

I also checked: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/viewing-site-statistics-123043962.html#ViewingSiteStatistics-notes

But the information is not visible in the lower part of the document.

I need to know the most popular and least popular pages/spaces on Confluence to know how they are adding value or if it's time to remove content and keep our documentation lean and relevant.

Something similar to the basic Google Analytics dashboard but in Confluence, I've seen plugins, but they charge for this basic service...

I'd really appreciate your help.

Thanks a lot,

Federico Olmus

Hi Federico,

we use the tracking plugin from Servicerocket for that:

(https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/net.customware.confluence.plugin.tracking/server/overview)

Once it is deployed, it counts all page hits (except the ones from the last author) and gives you views to see these page hits as table or single count or last view date etc.

We are happy with that. And it is for free.

Thank you, Thomas, I'll check it out.

Please consider an external analytics tool; there are some free ones on this list:

Do they apply for Cloud Confluence?

Closer examination of the products indicate you have to add an agent of some kind to the instance - you are right that this is restricted in Cloud. :(

Hi Federico,

We created an add-on that provides insights into the most popular/unpopular pages in Confluence Cloud. It includes both a high level overview of activity but also the details like who has viewed a particular page – all integrated into the Confluence experience.

You can find more information here: Analytics for Confluence Cloud

You might consider Google Analytics in Confluence
