This little demo illustrates how one might use a little (invisible) java applet to gather information about how long a visitor actually views a particular page ... well - how long the page is opened in a browser window anyway.
In this version of the demo (this one's my preferred version BTW), individual thread executions simply increment a local counter. Only when the applet stops (due to the visitor having left the page) is the server cgi called to update info on the visitor's viewing time.
Anyway - the following pages comprise the demo. Just visit a few of these dummy pages to simulate traversing a site and then visit the REPORT page to see a list of the times you spent on each of the dummy pages (and this page). Also, you can see the applet tag by viewing the source of any of the pages.
N.B. - This demo uses some of my previous stuff to establish unique identifiers for each visitor. If you're interested in the supporting stuff, drop by the Stats Demos page for more on the supporting stuff.
NOTE for folks behind a firewall
This demo and applet are designed to work for folks located behind a firewal. I know this won't work for all platforms and browsers so, if you could take a moment to drop me a line to let me know if it does work for you, I'd really really appreciate it. Please let me know which OS, Firewall and Browser you're using so that I can better define when this solution will work.
If you have any difficulty getting this demo to work and you suspect it is because you are behind a firewall, try CLICKING HERE in order to enter the demo using al alternate form of it's URL.
