Visits Over Time

Categories: Piwik

This “Visits Over Time” graph can show you the number of visits broken down into periods as determined by the time period set. So for example if your time period is set to “day”, the graph will show the latest visits on a day by day basis.


If you were to change the time period to “week”, the graph will aggregate the data and show you the visits on a weekly basis.


Rows to Display

In the bottom left corner, you can change the number of entries to be shown in the graph. This enables you to view more or less data and fine-tune the display as you want. The image below shows the daily data showing 60 days worth of data.
