To see even more stats about your account, click the Expand Stats button. On the expanded space you will see:

To access the detailed statistics for your account and domain name, you can either click on the green Detailed Stats button in the left column, or through the SiteGround Account Stats icon in the Visitor Stats section.
Once you go to the Detailed Stats page, you will see multiple stats for your account and domain names separated into two different tabs.
Account Executions and Scripts
In this tab, you will see information about the most commonly executed scripts in your entire account. The graphic can show the Script Executions and the CPU Usage graphs. You can switch between daily and weekly graph too in order to find out when your account is accessed the most.
Under the graphic, you will see the list of Top 10 Executed Scripts.
It will allow you to quickly find out which scripts your site is executing the most and if you have some sort of a performance issue, to pinpoint the exact script that's causing it.

Next, you can see the most popular URLs for this domain name. That's another useful stat that can both show you the most popular pages or potential problems.
Finally, the User Agent table will show you the different browsers or robots that have accessed this domain name. It's useful to detect spam bots for example.
