I understand the 'usage stats' pluigin is unavailable for the Confluence Cloud. Why is this? It is vital to know how frequently a page is viewed to know if it is useful, and very helpful to know who has (and therefore hasn't) viewed a page.
Are there other plug-ins that can do this, of is the capability simply not possible? Can google analytics fill the gap?
It's because the built-in usage stats stuff is frankly archaic and does not perform well. It works, but doesn't scale well. I'm not sure why it's even left in there any more.
There's a couple of add-ons I reach for here. View Tracker for Server and Analytics for Cloud - very different, but both seem to get me trustworthy numbers. (I've injected google analytics on server, but it was a while ago. I prefer dedicated add-ons personally, much as GA does work)
