Performance analytics allows you to track author, article, and category performance. This information can help you determine which articles/category pages are performing well, need revisions, or are the most searched by users. All performance analytics information can be filtered by project version, language, and date at the top of the performance page.

The main cards show the number of article/category page likes, dislikes, views, and reads, and the graph table under shows each statistic, including average user read time, for each day in your selected time frame.

  • Total Dislikes: The collective number of downvotes 👎 by readers in each article/category page from the selected project version and language in the selected date range

  • Total Views: The number of times the article/category page in the selected project version and language have been opened on a unique reader's browser. Views are quantified when a reader spends less time than the estimated time to read an individual article or page. The estimated time to read is mentioned on top of each article. For example, 5 minutes to read.

    To enable the estimated time to read option:
    Go to SettingsKnowledge base siteArticle settings & SEOArticle settingsArticle header → Toggle the Show read estimate to On

  • Total Reads: This is a bit more specific than total views. Reads are quantified when the reader spends more than or equal to the estimated time to read an individual article or page. The estimated time to read an article is mentioned on top of each article.

    To enable the estimated time to read option:
    Go to SettingsKnowledge base siteArticle settings & SEOArticle settingsArticle header → Toggle the Show read estimate to On
