Well, I want to like this a lot, but so far, I don’t see that it is all that useful. Nice enough bell and whistle I guess.

That said, what it is missing for me is the ability to see the stats for each of my various pages, not just the main page. How many people are looking at this or that product. How many are looking at the shipping info? How many are looking at my daily blog? That kind of thing.

I guess that is what you mean by 30,000 ft overview. A bit more detail would be useful.

And as far as not useful goes, my top 5 referrers are my own site in one form or another.

The revenue counter is nice though – to end on a positive note!

Oh, I would be cautious about emailing people about abandoned orders. I have done it (in the beginning), but not gained a single sale, and personally would find it annoying if a store emailed me in most cases. And I am not saying don’t do it, just be cautious in your approach.

I like the visits overview chart, at least in terms of showing a trend, although it would be nice to be able to select start and end times.

As Alchemist John mentioned, my top 5 referrers are also from within my own site, or from the Launched forum. BUT there was a burst of activity last night, none of which I can see in the top 5 referrers. I would really like to be able to see all the referrers.

I am a little confused about tobi’s search term explanation. The only search terms I see are the ones that were entered from my site’s own search box.

Seems that filtering your own store as referrer doesn’t work in your case Dietmar.

Hmm.. do you mainly use a url for your store which is not the primary domain as per DNS config? that might do it…

I am also getting referrers from my own store as well. My primary domain in the DNS configuration is the www subdomain of our top level domain name.

I was also wondering if the tracking of visits is only limited to the store pages, and not rolling over to the admin pages?
There is about 40 visits difference between analytics and shopify’s tracking. This might be do to the differences in how a visit is defined between the two. Figured I would ask to make sure this wasn’t overlooked.

One last thing. Our revenue for today is still displaying our revenue from yesterday. I checked and our time zone setting is correct.

@Alchemist John,

You should really look into analytics for all the indepth statistics. The dashboard is very new and might take a while to see these types of detailed statistics any time soon.

For a basic overview of the days current events, I think it is doing what it was intended to do. Save for a few bugs that need to be worked out.

I like this feature very much, but the numbers don’t jibe with Google Analytics. Any thoughts?

I am finding that I have visits displayed through the dashboard but they are not registering on Google analytics. Which number is correct? I thought at first that it was counting my own visits, but the number goes up even though I have not been on my site.

Also, is there any way to find out where the visits are coming from (direct, Google, email, etc.),what area of the country they are from? what pages and products they are looking at, etc.? I love the real time aspect of the dashboard, but I wish there was more information about each visit.

My Google analytics hasn’t updated since yesterday at 11am. No traffic being tracked. I am wondering if there are problems with their service.

Is this what you are seeing as well?
