try to search your story with g00gle - e.g. scribblehub name_of_your_story
a gaijin - if found click on link - voila referrer g00gle in your statistics
But there is a tab especially for web clicks. Google is there '-'

Empty must mean something different.

What does "empty" in the referrer section mean? :blob_hmm:

good question. wondering that too.

Found this on Google:

It will/may be empty when the enduser
  • entered the site URL in browser address bar itself.
  • visited the site by a browser-maintained bookmark.
  • visited the site as first page in the window/tab.
  • clicked a link in an external application.
  • switched from a https URL to a http URL.
  • switched from a https URL to a different https URL.
  • has security software installed (antivirus/firewall/etc) which strips the referrer from all requests.
  • is behind a proxy which strips the referrer from all requests.
  • visited the site programmatically (like, curl) without setting the referrer header (searchbots!).

Hmm... geographical info is cool, but I would like to have some demographical insight as well—like age group or gender or such.

You can't get this info from guest users.

And logged in users often times hide and/or lie on this info as well. It's not that uncommon to see people setting random joke birth dates for one.

So... Not really feasible.

Hmm... as someone who hides his own info, I cannot refute that. Oh well...

I wasn't a fan of the old statistics page so decided to make a new one:

If you run into any bugs or problems please post here and I'll fix it as soon as I can.
I mentioned it here.


I'm not sure if the statistics page also counts this, but it should either discount it or at least clarify somehow what is your own activity (visiting to edit or proofread), and what is people legit visiting your page. I'm hoping soon I'm be able to figure out which chapters haven't got any readers (besides me).

I would also like to know that. While the total amount of visits is neglectable, bumping my viewcount artificially whenever I want to fix some typo isn't my goal. Also, I wonder if it affects country distribution/geographical info, as well?
