This page outlines how to get statistics for resource pages on the LTK platform, as well as how to get historical statistics from the Cold Fusion platform from the period January 1, 2000 to January 31, 2010. Please note: Statistics are unavailable for resource pages from the period February 2, 2010 to December 31, 2012.

Getting statistics for the Resource Pages on the LTK platform

  • Use Google Analytics to find statistics for the number of times the resource page has been accessed. Please note: these statistics differ from the number of times the database itself has been accessed, as the new LTK platform allows users to bypass the Information Page for the resource. Statistics began being tracked for the new platform as of January, 2013.
