This is a proposal to improve the Referers > Overview report.
This will greatly increase the "at a glance" analytics capability of Piwik.
The full Referrers Overview layout could be: ~~* Top graph showing total visits graph, and Direct entry visits line (currently only shows direct entry visits)~~ ~~* Below "Referrer Type", display sparklines for each ref type~~ ~~* The sparklines should be enhanced and display a % evolution from yester the start of the graph displayed above.~~
[SPARKLINE_IMAGE] 518 from websites (35% of visits) [icon_image] +15% over the period
~~* '+15% over the period' has a tooltip that reads '156 visits on Nov 6th, 177 on Dec 6th: +15%'~~ ~~* on click on sparkline the graph loads "All visits" line + the clicked sparkline's line. User can then unclick the "all visits" to hide the line. But it is good to show the relative value straight ahead to further help analysis.~~ ~~* Add a link below the 4 sparklines that says "More sparklines"~~ ~~* When clicked this link will display the current "Distinct Referrers by Referrer Type" section of extra sparklines. These are useful to have, just better hide them by default.~~ ~~* These extra sparklines should be extended to contain the % evolution and have consistent style with other sparkline (except they wont show the relative % since it does not apply to these stats).~~ ~~* Reuse the row evolution css styles and template code: http://piwik.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Piwik-mobile-iOS-VS-Android.png~~ ~~* Below sparklines is the 2 columns listing. Similarly to the Goals report which has a similar 2 column view.~~ ~~* Left column: listing the following reports ~~ ~~* Right column: ajax loading by default the "All Referers report"~~ ~~* Loads in the right, the clicked report from left column. ~~ ~~* The reports listed on the left are, in this order:~~ ~~* All Referrers (new report see #1899) <-- This one is pre-displayed~~ ~~* Referrers Overview (showing direct VS search VS websites VS campaigns)~~ ~~* Keywords~~ ~~* Websites~~ ~~* Campaigns~~ ~~* Social Media~~ ~~* Search Engines~~ ~~* The code tpl+js+css from the Goals overview template should be refactored and reused.~~
The Referrers Overview will be suited for analysis. Let's make the code generic as I think it will be put to good use: We could reuse such a style for other Overview reports (Visitors > Overview or Goals > Overview) if it works well.
(In ) Refs #3619, several improvements/modifications to Referrers overview, including: - Add Total referrer metrics to evolution graph which are always displayed. - Added evolution percentage next to sparklines. - Moved other sparklines (for distinct metrics) to smaller section that slides down.
Notes: - Fixed bug in broadcast.js where '+' chars were removed when sanitizing query params. - Moved multisites evolution & previous period calculating code to Piwik core. - Added section-toggler-link code to common js code (CoreHome/misc.js). - Refactored evolution percentage code used for row evolution popup.
