I think it would look cleaner if you just put it at the bottom ?

Although thinking about it, should direct be included as a referral?

Nice, thanks!

Hm, it's not really a referral, right? It's more like a source of traffic (direct, referrals)

Yeah that's true.

How about going super clean:

That is cool! Let me think about this. Only downside is that it also looks like a loader a bit.

Regular pie chart seemed a bit out of sync with the rest of the design!

I like the donut chart, but I kind of like it is at the bottom and with the numbers always showing. If it was thicker, it would not appear as much like a loader... But that is a valid concern.

If the donut chart is preferred - perhaps change the loading animation??

I like the three dots personally (last one on 2nd row)

Yeah, if we change the loading indicator it's better, I agree.

Out of curiosity, since you know referrals, can you do a breakdown like this (in a donut chart maybe?)

1993 visits Referrals (25% total)

37% Social (Known social networks)
46% SEO (Known search engines)
NN% Direct (no referrer)

OR something like that? it would offer some richer insights and may not be that hard if you had a small dictionary of referrers to flag as Social or SEO.

That's cool! Maybe we could use a toggle like this:

  • 150 search
  • 120 social
  • 60 news.ycombinator.com

and when you click on search you get:

  • 150 search
    • 130 google.com
    • 20 duckduckgo.com
  • 120 social
  • 60 news.ycombinator.com

with some kind of nice animation or something

An accordion might be perfect for this!

Yeah, I don't think I hate that.

You may want to do an expander (no auto-closing the previously opened), just because some people may want to see all stats.

But I love the idea of grouping it. It makes sense to me.

This may be a bad idea, but since you are so "open". You may want to make the "seed" files to define social/search engines live in GitHub. Then people could do pull requests to update or add to them.

This would let you add other categories later as it made sense. Though the traditional search/social/direct/referral/email may be right.

Ohh email is another one that would be pretty easy. A lot of newsletters use substack or revue or something else that is identifiable.

pretty nice...

I would think a right-facing arrow that faces down when expanded might make more sense. The animation is a little glitchy/fast also.
