VKontakte statistics: how to look + 20 tips from a practitioner

What do the indicators mean in VKontakte statistics?

Let's start with the basics (by the way, these are the basics of media planning - if you want to learn more, you know what to Google).

Impressions - The total number of times your post was shown. All views are counted here, that is, one user is “recorded” in this indicator several times.

Reach is a metric that measures the number of people who saw your material. Reach only evaluates unique users. That is, how many people have you reached? We have already written in more detail about coverage in a separate article.

In addition, VKontakte statistics contain information about four types of coverage:

Total coverage is the total number of all users reached (the sum of the three parameters listed below).

Subscriber reach is the number of users who saw the post and are at the same time subscribed to the community.

Viral reach is the number of users who saw the material, although they are not subscribed to the community (for example, they saw a repost on a friend’s page or received a post in personal messages).

Advertising reach - users reached through paid promotion.

Bottom line

In today's material, we looked at such an important management and development tool as VKontakte public statistics. Indeed, if used and analyzed correctly, you can get the most out of this information.

The main thing is not to forget to check here periodically.

How to view VKontakte community statistics

There are two convenient ways to view page statistics:

  • Built-in VKontakte statistics (your own accounts);
  • Using an analytics service on social networks (your own and other people’s pages).

VKontakte pages and groups have the same statistics, so let’s agree - we’ll tell you about everything at once.

The simplest numbers can be obtained directly on the community page: the number of views, likes, comments, reposts of publications, the number of subscribers. This data is visible to all users.

For more detailed statistics, go to the "Community Management - Statistics" section.

By default, detailed VK statistics are available only to administrators, but they can be opened to everyone. This function is used by public owners who sell advertising: open statistics prove that posting in the community will be effective.

To change access to community statistics, scroll to the bottom of the statistics page, where the “Who can access community statistics” block is located there.

Here you will see sections:

  • Coverage;
  • Attendance;
  • Activity;
  • Community messages;
  • Records.

The “Reach” and “Attendance” sections contain graphs that can be displayed by day, week or month and select the desired time interval.

Below is information about the audience in question:

  • Gender/Age;
  • Geography;
  • Devices (mobile/computers).

The “Activity” section displays information about user actions:

  • Subscribe to notifications about new posts in the community.
  • Engagement indicators: Likes; Comments; Reposts; Hiding community posts from the feed;
  • Activity in photo albums;
  • Participation in discussions.

The “Community Messages” section collects information about correspondence with the page. Even if you don't have the Community Posts widget connected, you can still see information about user requests to yours on your community page.

There are two graphs available here:

  • Unique users who sent messages;
  • Number of messages sent and received.

Post statistics are available for communities with more than 5,000 members. By default, this data is not collected. When you first enter this section, click on the “Enable advanced statistics” button.

Unlike other statistics sections, detailed recording statistics are visible only to administrators and editors, even if you have opened the statistics to everyone in the settings.

The “Posts” section displays data about each community post. On the site you can see statistics about the last 150 publications, and in the download - about 300.

When you delete a post, its statistics also disappear.

In the "Posts" section you will see:

  • Total reach and subscriber reach;
  • Likes;
  • Reposts;
  • Comments.

In the hiding tab: Number of times the entry has been hidden. Complaints. Hiding all entries.

In the transitions tab: The number of people who transferred to the community, joined the community and clicked on the link. Number of introductions from this entry. Number of clicks on the link.

Data is updated every 10 minutes.

Let's get acquainted with the activity schedule

The activity graph shows the active actions of visitors on the page. Such actions include: comments, likes, reposts, hiding from the feed, mentions. Each of these actions is represented as boxes below the graph. By checking and unchecking them, you can turn on and off the display of the corresponding curves. By the way, you can also look at the history of your own activity, but in a different place and in a different way. To do this you need to do the following operations:

  • log in to your profile,
  • go to the “my settings” menu,
  • In the “security” section, click on the “show activity history” link.

You should monitor your activity to ensure safety from hacking. If someone else logs in using your login, this can be easily determined by strange activity (unusual logout time and unfamiliar device from which it was made). In this case, you can click “end all sessions” in the same section, and then take the necessary security measures, including using the “login confirmation” function.

Analysis of personal VKontakte page

All users who gain more than 100 subscribers have access to the statistics of their personal VK page. Yes, you can simply unfriend users who raise the question “Who is this anyway?” (We're sure everyone has one of these).

The link to the community page is located under your profile photo.

Statistics for a personal page on VKontakte are similar to group statistics, but in an abbreviated version. There are only three sections here:

  • Coverage;
  • Attendance;
  • Activity.

Similarly with community statistics, you can see the reach of subscribers and the socio-demographic characteristics of your audience, as well as the country and city (from the profile on VKontakte), where they live, and what devices they use to visit the social network.

The “Attendance” tab contains data on subscriptions and unsubscribes to your page. Data can be displayed for a day or for all time. At the same time, by moving the window under the graph, you can change the time interval for which statistics are displayed.

On the “Activity” tab, you can evaluate the popularity of your content on VKontakte: the number of likes, comments, reposts and hides.

It also displays the number of users who have turned on notifications about your new posts - this means that they do not want to miss your posts, even if the algorithms do not show them in the news feed.

Personal page statistics can be exported , this works in the same way as exporting community statistics.

Statistics of any VKontakte page

We have dealt with analyzing the statistics of our own pages and communities. Now let’s learn how to look at the statistics of other people’s pages: competitors or public pages where you plan to buy advertising.

In order to view statistics of communities and pages on VKontakte, to which you do not have access, use. You will even receive data that is not included in the built-in community statistics.

Let's take a look at the statistics of the Amediateki community together. We entered the address into the search bar and selected the analysis dates: let it be a month, from April 15 to May 15.

A dashboard with 3 columns will open:


Here you can select graphs based on different parameters : activity in the community by day of the week and time of day, likes, comments, views, reposts, ER, subscriber growth. And also: the volume of text, the number of publications, the ratio of audience activity and the length of the text and publication formats (photos, videos, text). Read more about each indicator in the FAQ.


This column contains all community publications for the selected period .

Using the example of Amediateka, it can be seen that the most popular post is the announcement of the series “Patrick Melrose” (surely the secret of success is Benedict Cumberbatch!).

By default they are sorted by number of likes , but you can choose any other option. For example, to determine the most engaging topics among your competitors, sort posts by comments.


The third column displays general information: the number of likes, comments, views, reposts for the period, ER (engagement rate). This section is marked with a red arrow in the screenshot above.

There is also a button for downloading all publications from the feed to Excel. Posts are exported along with text, images, and detailed statistics for each post.

When you click on the “Show table” button, a summary for the selected period opens. It is convenient to insert into presentations or show to a client. ;)

The full analysis result can also be uploaded to XLSX, PPTX or PDF. The download button is located on the left, in the “Statistics” column.

Now you can analyze your competitors’ VKontakte statistics using Excel, if this is more convenient. Or create detailed reports with VK community statistics for your clients in a couple of minutes.
