When are analytics updated in Nelio Content?

Nelio Content analytics shows which content works better on your WordPress. Once you have activated the analytics in your installation, Nelio Content will update the values periodically, following this approach:

  1. The analytics of the content published during the current day are calculated.
  2. An hour later, the analytics of (a subset of) the contents published during the last month are calculated.
  3. An hour later, the analytics of (a subset of) the contents published more than a month ago are calculated.
  4. An hour later, we compute the analytics of (a subset of) the contents that are on the top of analytics.
  5. An hour later, the cycle starts again from point 1.

Through this process, Nelio Content updates the analytics of all your content without causing a high load on your WordPress installation.

On the other hand, if you need to immediately calculate the analytics of all your content, you can do it in the Settings of Nelio Content. Once there, in the Content tab you will find the Refresh Analytics button. Click it and you’ll see a dialog where you can:

  • Refresh analytics for last month’s posts.
  • Refresh analytics of the last year’s posts.
  • Refresh analytics of all posts.
