Track visitors information in magento

Here, I will show you how to track visitor’s data information in Magento. By visitor’s information, I mean information like remote address, http host, user agent (browser), referer url, first visit date time, last visit date time, etc.
The following code fetches the vistor data:-
$visitorData = Mage::getSingleton(‘core/session’)->getVisitorData();
// printing visitor information data
echo “<pre>”; print_r($visitorData); echo “</pre>”;
You will get an array of visitor information data like the following one:-

Array
(
    [] =>
    [server_addr] => 167772437
    [remote_addr] => 167772437
    [http_secure] =>
    [http_host] => 127.0.0.1
    [http_user_agent] => Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/8.0.552.237 Safari/534.10
    [http_accept_language] => en-US,en;q=0.8
    [http_accept_charset] => ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.3
    [request_uri] => /magento/index.php/catalog/category/view/id/22
    [session_id] => 13qm5u80238vb15lupqcac97r5
    [http_referer] => http://127.0.0.1/magento/
    [first_visit_at] => 2011-01-17 11:42:23
    [is_new_visitor] =>
    [last_visit_at] => 2011-01-17 11:58:38
    [visitor_id] => 41
    [last_url_id] => 139
)

In the above array, the server_addr and remote_addr are in different form than usual. The (IPv4) Internet Protocol dotted address has been converted into a proper address using ip2long PHP function. You can get the same kind of value from the following code:-
// user’s ip address (visitor’s ip address)
$remoteAddr = Mage::helper(‘core/http’)->getRemoteAddr(true);
// server’s ip address (where the current script is)
$serverAddr = Mage::helper(‘core/http’)->getServerAddr(true);

Hope this helps. Thanks.
