Each row returned in this report can be further analyzed by SmarterStats. By moving
your mouse over a row, a down arrow appears at the end of the row. The options
available when clicking on this arrow include: Data Mining, Open URL, Set Page Alias and View Details.
- Data Mining - Data mining allows site administrators and users
to drill down into more detail about the item in the particular row. For example, viewing the
referring URLs, bandwidth used, query strings and more. For more information, see the
Data Mining overview.
- Open URL - Opens the item in a new window.
- Set Page Alias - Allows users to set a friendly name for sometimes
complex URLs. For example, if a Page shows up as "/smartertools/products/smarterstats/pricing.aspx",
users can instead attach the alias of "SmarterStats Pricing". That way, any report
items that reference that page URL will display "SmarterStats Pricing" instead of
the URL itself. This feature is especially useful when using query variables, which
can have cryptic or numerical variables such as ProductID=37. For more information, see the
Page Alias overview.
- View Details - Displays a number of details about the specific
item. For example, Traffic details, Performance results, any
result codes returned (e.g., 404 errors) or any Site Tuning issues
that are found.
