Locations

The data for the Locations report is based on the location information in each user profile.

Note: Processing time for this report is directly proportional to the amount of data that needs to be processed. A large reporting period will require more time to evaluate each user location. Remaining processing time is indicated by the number of Pending locations in the data table. Made up or invalid locations – “The Internet”, “Imaginationland”, “Mars”, etc – or profiles without a specified location will be classified as Not provided or identifiable.

5 minutes caching

The first time you run this report on a new database or time period all the data will be queued up in our system. This queuing mechnism is unique to this and the Links Report. The reason is that for both reports we need to give our servers more time to crunch the data and pull more even more data from other 3rd party resources (for example, for Links Shared our crawlers will visit each URL and retreive title, meta description and meta keywords).

Because of this queuing we are caching the report outputs for 5 minutes. In order words, for the same database, time period and other settings the report output will only update once every 5 minutes.
