Rating@Mail.ru – traffic analysis

Rating@Mail.ru is an analytics tool like as google analytics.


To start using the Rating@Mail.ru integration, you must have installed the django-analytical package and have added the analytical application to INSTALLED_APPS in your project settings.py file. See Installation and configuration for details.

Next you need to add the Rating@Mail.ru template tag to your templates. This step is only needed if you are not using the generic analytical.* tags. If you are, skip to Configuration.

The Rating@Mail.ru counter code is inserted into templates using a template tag. Load the rating_mailru template tag library and insert the rating_mailru tag. Because every page that you want to track must have the tag, it is useful to add it to your base template. Insert the tag at the bottom of the HTML head:

{% load rating_mailru %}
{% rating_mailru %}


Before you can use the Rating@Mail.ru integration, you must first set your website counter ID.

Setting the counter ID

Every website you track with Rating@Mail.ru gets its own counter ID, and the rating_mailru tag will include it in the rendered Javascript code. You can find the web counter ID on the overview page of your account. Set RATING_MAILRU_COUNTER_ID in the project settings.py file:


If you do not set a counter ID, the counter code will not be rendered.

Internal IP addresses

Usually you do not want to track clicks from your development or internal IP addresses. By default, if the tags detect that the client comes from any address in the RATING_MAILRU_INTERNAL_IPS setting, the tracking code is commented out. It takes the value of ANALYTICAL_INTERNAL_IPS by default (which in turn is INTERNAL_IPS by default). See Identifying authenticated users for important information about detecting the visitor IP address.
