The Statistics module shows you how often a given page is viewed, who viewed it, the previous page the user visited (referrer URL), and when it was viewed.

In Drupal 7 configure statistics via configuration > statistics.

To enable collection of statistics, the Enable access log checkbox on the Statistics settings page must be checked.

Enable Count content views to turn on and off the node-counting functionality. If turned on, an extra database query is added for each node displayed, which increments a counter.

Make sure you set permissions for the module at admin/user/permissions and configure it.

Based on drupal.org and http://groups.drupal.org/node/147619

  • You need the view post access counter permission to see the statistics_counter pseudo-link.
