How many "hits" or "views" to the Newsletter

Postby scubadox » Sun Mar 09, 2014 10:06 pm

Is there a way to determine how many people have viewed the newsletter page over a period of time? In other words, is there a way to view statistics for page views for this section? As a related question, does someone know if there is a method to determine how many ward members have actually signed up on lds.org? It would be useful to know.

Thanks!

The only way I can think of is if you promise a fun pack of M&Ms in the newsletter and then see how many ask for them.

I actually came up with an idea that gives me a rough idea. I registered a domain name (sunsetspotlight.com), which is the name of our printed newsletter. Then I forwarded it to a bit.ly URL shortener. bit.ly let's you count clicks. Then the bit.ly link forwards to our lds.org newsletter site. The user is required to log into lds.org but is then taken directly to the newsletter. bit.ly lets me check daily to see how many people are going thru that link, giving me a rough idea of usage.

Does this work. I would be interested in trying it. Could you explain it in basic terms for a none tech person? :confused:
