How does analytics work in Readz?

When someone visits a Readz page, our platform immediately receives these requests and we can track usage and traffic data for content 'at the source'. This data is then displayed in the graphs and tables in the analytics tab in Readz.

Why do I see different results in Google Analytics and Readz analytics?

Google Analytics can be added to your Readz URL by inputting the Google Analytics ID in the Readz preferences. Once the ID is set, Google Analytics will start monitoring traffic to your URL. The method used to track this traffic, page views and sessions, is controlled by Google in this case. Sessions are defined by Google here and pageviews are defined by Google here.

Readz analytics behaves in a similar way as far as how sessions and pageviews are defined. However, the main difference is the type of control Readz has when pageviews and sessions are counted.

When someone visits a Readz page, we are actually receiving the request from the user. Readz analytics performs this way is to get a much more accurate picture of true hits on the servers in relation to visits. Every time a page is loaded, all that data must be served from a Readz server which we consider viewing the content. This data is then displayed in the graphs and tables in the analytics tab in Readz.

Since Google does not actually host the content, Google analytics does not receive these request, they have to add a Javacode snippet to measure these requests and traffic data. The issue with this method is that often that snippet of Javacode cannot do its job because of misconfigurations, ad blockers etc.
