This report shows the number of times your SharePoint content items were viewed, grouped by SharePoint item types including site pages, documents, blog posts, and more. A page view is an instance of a page being loaded by a browser. Each view of the same SharePoint content item by the same visitor is counted as an independent page view. You can select which SharePoint item types to show in the report in the "Advanced" tab within the table widget preferences or the "Group By" tab within the chart widget preferences.
