I'm pleased to announce the release of my first Confluence plugin — Google Analytics plugin for Confluence.
It lists Google Analytics reports for a particular Confluence space - from within that space. The current version has 10 reports and shows the first 20 results for each report.
- Top Content
- Depth of Visit
- Internal Search
- Browser and OS
- Browser Version
- Screen Resolution
- All Traffic Sources
- Search Engine Keywords
Just before Christmas, Atlassian quietly approved the plugin on their Plugin Exchange website. Since then, Matt Hodges posted a great write up about it on the Atlassian website — Report Confluence Activity Using Google Analytics in the Wiki.
Screencasts and live demonstrations
I've done a couple of screencast demos on usage and configuration:
But better than that, it's now out in the wild and you can try it for yourself on other people's sites:
- Atlassian have installed it on their Confluence Sandbox
- Arne Schirmacher has posted a live demo on his Confluence site
- Another live demo on my personal Confluence space (using 1.2-SNAPSHOT)
If you're using this plugin or have tried it out, I'd really like to know what you think of it.
- What improvements would you like made?
- What reports are missing?
- Where could the UI could be improved?
Please post a comment if you've got it installed.
I'd like to thank the Confluence community for their help mainly via Atlassian Forums and some Atlassians for helping me out when I got stuck - particularly Shaun Hare, Keith Brophy, Jonathan Nolen and David Peterson.
