Use the Stats tab in SiteBuilder to see information about your website traffic such as page views, most viewed pages or files, and a breakdown of views by students and staff. If you need anything more than basic statistics, we recommend you use Google Analytics with SiteBuilder.

Choose a reporting period and see page views
- To view statistics for your website, go to your home page. Alternatively, to view statistics for a particular section, go to the topmost page in that section.
Go to Edit > View page statistics. You can see a report of page views for the last seven days on the Stats tab:
- Use the From and To date pickers to choose the reporting period, up to a maximum of 180 days.
- The report shows information for the current page and all sub-pages by default. To see a report for the current page only, select Just this page from the Scope drop-down list.
- By default, visits by search engines and anyone with edit or admin permissions are excluded from the report. To include either of these, select the checkboxes Include search engines and Include editors.
- When you have finished specifying the options, select Show statistics to run the report.

- If you have a significant number of visits to a deleted page, consider replacing it with a forwarding page that redirects the visitor to the information elsewhere on your website.
Select the How people got here section to expand it. The report shows you how people arrived at your page, known in web analytics as a ‘referral’. Referrals can be a result of:
- using a search engine
- typing the page's URL

- following a link from another page
