European Countries Report

The “European Countries” report is a part of the Geographic reports. This report provides insights into the visitor statistics based on their country of origin within Europe. It is a crucial tool for understanding the geographical distribution of your European audience.

Accessing the Report

To access the “European Countries” report:

  1. Navigate to the WP Statistics plugin in your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Select “Statistics” from the menu.
  3. Under the “Geographic” section, click on “European Countries”.

Report Components

The “European Countries” report is divided into several key components:

  • Country: The list of European countries from which your website has received visitors.
  • Visitor Count: The number of unique visitors from each European country.
  • View Count: The total number of page views generated by visitors from each European country.
  • View Details: A button to view more detailed statistics for each country. Note that detailed single country reports are available with the Data Plus add-on.

Country Detection

We detect cities, regions, and countries through the user’s IP and use the GeoIP library.

Note for Site Owners

For more accurate location reports, make sure your GeoIP database is updated. You can update the database through:

  • Settings -> Data Sources -> Update database for both “GeoIP Collection” and “GeoIP City”.

Version Notes

The European Countries report was introduced in version 14.8. Additionally, we made an under-the-hood change in version 14.7 to separate countries by continent. Therefore, if you notice discrepancies between the numbers in the European Countries report and the Countries report, it is because we did not track continents before version 14.7.

Utilizing the Data

Understanding the geographical distribution of your European audience can help you tailor your content and marketing strategies to better suit the preferences and behaviors of visitors from different regions. For instance:

  • If a significant portion of your traffic comes from non-English speaking European countries, consider adding multilingual support to your website.
  • High engagement from specific European countries might justify targeted advertising or localized content to further increase engagement and conversions.
