In the Analytics metrics screen of AFS Back Office, the Hit Parade tab displays accurate lists of the most significant achievements of a query service, that is how it is actually used.

AFS-BO Hit Parade is a powerful data mining tool used for computing the most popular expressions from users queries. Rankings can be built for any period of time. In a similar way, it is possible to find the most popular documents by analyzing clicks.

The Hit-Parade display is available in the AFS-BO Analytics screen which is accessible with a click:

  • on the Analytics link for a service in the Dashboard,
  • on the charts preview in the the Quick view display for a service in the Dashboard, or.


Custom views help create thematic categories which can be used to build profile-specific rankings. It is also possible to obtain the most popular keywords or documents for specific sections of the Website. For more information, see Views Editor Tool.

To narrow the display, filters are available, as described in Filtering Hit-Parade Analytics.
