Data Mining - Entry Pages

Where did people who hit this file enter the site?

This query allows you to select a single page contained within your website and see the top pages used to access the page. This is a particularly useful form of data mining that allows you to track where people are coming from when they access a specific page. For example, if a page is specified in an advertising campaign or marketing campaign, users can see exactly how people are accessing that page, and verify any information that is given by the particular site that contains the advertising.

Terms Used

Entry Page - The entry page is the first page a web site visitor goes to during a visit

Visits - Visits represent the total number of times people have visited your web site. A visit is counted whenever a web site user requests one or more files from the web server. If the user becomes idle for more than a certain amount of time (usually 20 minutes), a new visit is generated when they come back.
