OSNews, Generic OSes

It's been a while since we've done one of these, so here we go: some detailed platform and browser statistics for OSNews. They're collected using Google Analytics, between 12 April and 12 May. As always, these statistics are only relevant for OSNews, and can, in no way, be extrapolated to any other site.

Seriously though; you'd have thought there must be some way to reverse engineer this kind of thing, but from what you write, Google haven't tried to make it easy (I naively assumed there might even be documentation about it!).


Well actually, it's probably easier than we're both thinking. I mean for example, I used the haiku-os.org GA stats to extrapolate how I thought GA was handling the UA from Haiku's WebPositive.

You could easily setup your own website, and attack it from your Maemo device and then review the GA stats that it produced.

I liked your suggestion, so gave it a go. Sadly, although I could see the page impressions register in the real time view, over twelve hours later there's still nothing appearing in the browser stats ;)
