I am having a really hard time getting to an easy answer for how to track page views in Confluence. I can't download anything. Company policy. Surely, there is a built-in tool that does not need admin rights to install? Believe me: our admin rights Help Desk is a multi-hour wait if you can even get past the full voicemail. Tracking page views should be easy...it's a thing that even the most rudimentary SharePoint site can do...
In short: Confluence Server doesn't support tracking the page views out of the box.
For Confluence server, there is a free app on the marketplace:
We didn't install it, because it could affect the performance when you save data every time someone loads a page.
In order to install add-ons from Marketplace, you will need to ask your site admin to approve it and install it for you.

If your use case is more oriented around full analytics, then the Analytics for Confluence should help.
If you are more interested in finding those pages that no-one visits, and clean those up to reduce the clutter, then it is the Better Content Archiving app.
If you can't solve the use case with built-in features, but there are apps for it, then you either use an app (even with a delay) or leave the use case unsolved, I'm afraid.
I'm not worried about version incompatibility, because the Better Content Archiving apps have been developed since 2008, so it supports all Confluence versions released in the last 12 years.
Hey there, folks! For most of us, the past six months- yes, you read that right- have been a journey. More people than ever before have pivoted to working remotely, and navigating being on-scre...
