get distinct list of mysql records filter by ip.date and page/query

i have a table of
-- Table structure for table `visitor_tracking`
--

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `visitor_tracking`;
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `visitor_tracking` (
  `entry_id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `visitor_id` int(11) default NULL,
  `ip_address` varchar(15) NOT NULL,
  `page_name` text,
  `query_string` text,
  `timestamp` timestamp NOT NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`entry_id`),
  KEY `visitor_id` (`visitor_id`,`timestamp`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=22 ;

Open in new window


with data like
INSERT INTO `visitor_tracking` (`entry_id`, `visitor_id`, `ip_address`, `page_name`, `query_string`, `timestamp`) VALUES
(32, 1, '98.28.197.00', '/single_event_page.php', 'id=5', '2014-01-10 19:18:18'),
(33, 1, '98.28.197.00', '/single_event_page.php', 'id=2', '2014-01-10 19:31:49');

Open in new window

sorry for only 2 entries

i need to get the page views for unique hits so i assume i need to group ips and filter by page_name and query_string as the page name is with the query string.

how do i do i return records for a certain date and for the month?
im not understanding how to use distinct and group correctly in my mysqli select string.

thank you for any code or help you may provide.

hits are recorded by ip. so yes there are multiple entries

that groups them in alpha order too..still need hits count how do i print count field
this condition selected records on Feb1st. change it as per your need.
WHERE DAYOFMONTH(`timestamp`) = 1 -- change it to wathever the day you want.
AND MONTH(`timestamp`) = 2

wow thats nifty for month and day ill have to look up year too

still how do i get count for hits please?
You have year function too.
AND YEAR(`timestamp`)=2014

Open in new window

If you want altogether, you can simply apply
`timestamp`='2014-02-01'

Open in new window

Coming to the count(*), Is it not printing the count at all? Are you getting blank under this column?

this works
 $sql="select page_name,query_string,count(DISTINCT ip_address) as page_count
  from visitor_tracking
 group by page_name,query_string;";

for unique hits

and just so others know i needed to limit the query strings too so heres that code
    $words = array( 'id=5','id=73' );
$whereClause = '';
foreach( $words as $word) {
   $whereClause .= ' query_string LIKE "%' . $word . '%" OR';
}

// Remove last 'OR'
$whereClause = substr($whereClause, 0, -2);

    /*
    $sql = "SELECT visitor_id, page_name, query_string, GROUP_CONCAT(DISTINCT ip_address) as ip_address_list,
        COUNT(DISTINCT ip_address) as ip_total, COUNT(DISTINCT ip_address) as page_count,
        timestamp FROM visitor_tracking WHERE" . $whereClause ." GROUP BY query_string";
   */
   
    //echo $sql; die;
