Google Analytics Feature Tease

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

I just logged into my analytics account over at google and had a strange new view. It showed all the sites in my account with a summary of the code working, traffic up or down and percentage. It looked quite nice, so I tried changing the view so I could see all of my sites [...]

There are a lot of good things to like about the newer versions of wordpress. It seems to keep getting better. One of the really cool plugins is the stats plugin. This lets you have a nice simple stats interface accessible from your Dashboard on your wordpress blog. (It uses to track stats, [...]

WordPress plugin stattraq speedup

Saturday, April 8th, 2006

I’ve made mention I think that I use the stattraq plugin for wordpress as one of the ways to see where traffic is coming from on the site, etc. etc. etc. I think I mentioned it as one of my stat tracking tools about the time Google Analytics limped out of the gate… Anyway.. one [...]

Google indexing weirdness

Thursday, December 8th, 2005

In looking at my Google Analytics info…. I checked on the site’s stats and found that it’s really dropped since about Friday or Saturday from decent traffic to next to nothing. (20 visitors a day now.) The first thing I noticed was no referrers…. So, I started looking and sure enough the last [...]

Another Google analytics update

Thursday, December 1st, 2005

It still looks like Google Analytics may be adding those that requested to be emailed when signups were available. I’ve noticed the last couple days the stats are MUCH more recent. It’s currently 20:00 hours “Google time” on December 1, 2005 and I see stats for my site through 15:00 “google time” in the analytics [...]

Serving up web ads to users with javascript disabled

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005

Well, with all the news on the Explorer bug, I started wondering what affect this would have on people browsing sites with adsense. I mean, adsense relies on javascript, so if it’s disabled, no adsense right? Right… Of course, adsense is not the only advertising program that uses javascript. (Of course, there are a number [...]

More google news sitemaps….

Wednesday, November 16th, 2005

What are they trying to prove??? Okay, Google Analytics rolled out (slowly) earlier this week and is just now catching up on reporting data. It looked like one of the rockiest initial Google releases to date. This morning came the news of Google Base a way to submit and search, well, sets of information that [...]

Google Analytics under the microscope

Wednesday, November 16th, 2005

I’ve spent some time this evening looking at Google Analytics. (Now the data is being collected.) And I’ve got to say I’m impressed with the scope of what I’m seeing. First, since last night, more stats have been collected, there seem to be some missing from today yet (maybe ~12 hours behind at the moment). [...]

Google Analytics stats start to trickle in

Wednesday, November 16th, 2005

I’ve just logged back in at 1:11 AM EST, 11/16/05 and am seeing the stats from the 14th come in, some from the 15th. It looks like Google Analytics is starting to catch up. I suspect they’ve been working overtime to try and beef up the server resources dedicated to this project, hopefully things will [...]

Google Analytics update

Wednesday, November 16th, 2005

Well, I mentioned the release of Google Analytics yesterday which really looks promising. At this hour I can still say it looks promising. I had a funny thought after trying several times yesterday to get set up… it was a “good going, you just broke google” kind of thought. It was pretty clear that demand [...]
