PHPDIG Monthly Stats by BiJae
Posted: 17 Apr 07

I've recently Installed PHPDIG on my web server. It uses a MySql database to collect the information. The current release only gives its stats as total results. I am interested in seeing what people are looking at on my site, over time, so I can drive the information I provide them. So I developed this query to give me a quick and easy monthly snapshot of search terms:


SELECT l_includes, count(l_includes) as l_count
FROM logs
WHERE l_ts >= '2007-04-17'
AND l_ts <= '2007-04-30'
AND l_includes != ""
group by l_includes
order by l_count desc

The query will return a list of search terms ranked by the number of times that term was used for the dates entered in the query:

Quote (PHPMyAdmin):

l_includes              l_count
escrow                  3
job postings            2
investment rules        1
job posting             1
real estate             1

I've saved this query to my monthly task list in Outlook. When the reminder comes up I copy the query, change the dates and execute.
