Pages of your site that received very low traffic compared to your site's total traffic might not display in our Historical Dashboard. For a page to display in the 'Your Top Stories' list in Historical, it must meet the following criteria:
- The page must be recognized as an article by our page classification algorithm. Landing pages such as homepages and section front pages do not have their own page-detail views in Historical and are not included in your Top Stories lists.
- For any given hour within the last 3-4 months (or the full queryable date range available in your Historical Dashboard), the page must have been one of the top 500 articles on your site by total pageviews and engaged time that hour. Any pages that never received enough traffic to be in the top 500 pages by views in a given hour will not be written to the database that powers Historical.
- When viewing the Historical Dashboard with a particular date range selected, it will not display pages that had less than 1/1000 or <0.1% of pageviews than the total pageviews received by your site for the selected date range.
These low-traffic thresholds are in place to ensure the dashboard loads quickly in your browser, and to filter out potentially undesired page results from your dashboard, like pages on your staff-only staging site that receive extremely minimal views.
