Backend-based analytics for index and RSS

Mataroa now displays analytics for each blog’s index and RSS endpoint.

One can find them in their analytics dashboard page, along with posts analytics.

These analytics, as with post analytics, are backend-based. This has both benefits and drawbacks:

  • They cannot be blocked using adblock addons.
  • They do not need JavaScript to function.
  • They count every single reload as one hit.
  • They count crawlers and bots as hits.

Thank you, geoah for building this functionality!
