Web Analytics for wikibooks


How about a web analytics capability for wikibooks that gathers information about page views, geographical information, bounce rate etc. of visitor of books? It appears to be a useful addition to the toolbox of wikibookians. Everyone will be able to see the traffic hitting books, which will indicate its popularity. If Wikibooks provides this capability then external web analytics are not necessary, eliminating the possibility of loading arbitrary javascripts. ---- Sutambe 02:13, 19 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]
