Gatineau Wordpress Plugin

Posted by admin on January 1st, 2008 filed in Gatineau

Just saw that Joost developed a Wordpress plugin for Gatineau, Microsofts Analytics solution.

The plugin let’s you automatically tag all the sites. You also can do this by adding the Gatineau script in the sidebar of your blog.

If you like the free plugin, please vote for Joost here. He is really an exceptional developer with great ideas…so I believe that he really deserves it.

    Day 1 after integration:
    After analyzing the first results I am convinced that something is wrong with Clickdensity. I had a large amount of clicks in an area, which is totally of the main site. This is really strange. On the other side, my own clicks were actually tracked right. I will test a few more weeks and post the results

  2. Jonathan Stoneman Says:


    Thank you for trialling clickdensity, I’m very sorry you are experiencing problems with it. If you provide me with your account details, I will look into the problem for you. You can contact me either via the contact form on the website ( or by e-mailing Just your username or the address of the site that you have set it up on is all that I require.

    From your description of the problem, I think it may be related to the setting of the keyElement variable if you have a centered web site. There are some instructions that may be of use to you here:

    Many thanks,

    Thanks for your help and support. I really appreciate it.
    You found exaclty the issue. Most clicks on the heat map appeared not right and about 40-50 Pixel to the left. I used your Centred templates help and it seems to work fine now. I really enjoy the heat maps. They look better than most of the heat maps that I have seen so far.

    Nice way of presenting geolocation data. Cool presentation, especially for free sites. Thanks!

    Interesting set of guidelines. I agree that tv or radio are most difficult to track online - you have so little time that it’s very difficult to pass anything outside of the company homepage.

    However for e.g. press ads having marcom url - seems like good choice.

    Excellent insightful objective comparison. Now, would you have any tips on how to explain these technically nuanced differences to those non-techies, as often vendors and executives alike would rely on Alexa ranking, when in fact, those numbers are only valid as a comparative trend to other websites, and not very valid for websites not in the top 150,000 trafficked?

To his credit, Marshall goes out of his way to note that while Hitwise is a “respected” traffic analysis firm, numbers are all over the map — and he links to the other Marshall’s critique of the field. The simple fact is that Hitwise, Comscore, Nielsen and Alexa all use different methodologies (a good description here) and as a result they are not just talking about apples and oranges, they are talking about apples and oranges and plums and peaches.

  22. scott Says:

    Most likely it was not the NYT that posted the ad but rather an affiliate marketer that advertises for the NYT. While I’m no fan of the New York Times (as I see them as a propaganda arm of the left that has been know to “make up” news ala Jason Blair and others) in this case NYT likely had nothing to do with this ad.

  23. Chris Says:

    I was involved with another web analytics company you don’t mention (funny, since I believe it’s larger than the three you do mention). The biggest problem is that even with huge sample sizes, for sites below the top few thousand, you’re still dealing with a very small numbers of accesses among your sample, so it’s impossible to accurately extrapolate to the whole population with any confidence, even if you’re statistically tweaking the results based on demographics as Comscore does.

  24. J Says:

    More food for thought:
    NetRatings and Comscore use a panel of 30k and 100k respectively, and both use web widgets to capture data without using cookies. Hitwise uses non-widget software and online panels. (Would like to know the type of ISPs are that Hitwise has contracts with - 1st tier or 2nd tier etc). Hitwise does not currently capture anything after the domain name (I understand): No /home, no /myarea?pw=123 etc. Hitwise does track University originating traffic as well as Home and Work. NetRatings does not track University originating info because they say its complicated and/or expensive to be sufficiently accurate.

  25. Webanalyticsbook Says:

    Thanks for your input!
    Regarding university traffic it is interesting to see how these companies manage different countries. It is hard to believe that universities in central Europe give out any data. Privacy is a big issue and private companies will never have access to this data. The question remains: Which of these companies can really help determing the needs of the advertising industry and deliver accurate numbers.

    You’re right. We believe Web analytics is coming of age. Large enterprises and ambitious affiliate marketers have been tapping into these tools for a long while, but the mainstreaming of Web analytics is upon us. With Google and Microsoft getting into the game, how could it not? It will be interesting to see how it pans out over the coming months.

    Sorry mate, phrases like “And you need to get it too!” or “the new Excel is just incredible” makes me feel as if I’m reading an advertisement. None of your other posts I’ve followed recently had this marketing touch.

    I think your niche was nice and interesting. However, you advertising products is not why I added your feed to my Google Reader.

    Goodbye and if you have some interest in keeping your visitors don’t do marketing, do science.

    I can assure you that I am not affiliated with any MS office related people and I don’t get any commission. If I want to promote a prdouct, I would do this in a much smarter way.
    I also believe Microsoft doesn’t need my help.

    As said in the post, I just like the new Excel 2007 product and I believe it finally has the ability to create much better stats.

  48. Clint Says:

    While I’m flattered that you chose a visualization that I created for your post, I find it a bit misleading because that particular exercise doesn’t require Excel 2007 - it can (and was done) in Excel 2003.

    Additionally, couple of folks whose opinion I trust about data visualization aren’t so upbeat about Excel 2007 (neither am I).

  49. admin Says:

    I am glad you are flattered and thanks for letting me use your great tachometer! I will add your site to my Links channel in order to make up for it ;-)
    The impression that you got from the main Tacho pic was wrong and I probably should have used another screenshot as the main picture, because you could not do this stuff in Excel 2003. Your’s just looked better for an webanalytics blog!

    It is obvious that the “Tachometer” doesn’t need Excel 2007, but the new style galleries and a massive expansion of functionality made my(!) life much easier.
    -Rows and capacity(Instead of 60.000 rows you now can use about 1.000.000 rows).
    - CUBEKPIMEMBER function
    - Smarter graphics, esp. color schemes

    If you are a high-end user (as you and your folks seem to be), I am sorry to have stepped on your toes. For the “average” webanalyst I still believe the new Excel is great.

  80. Joe Vandal Says:

    I appreciate the work they put into upgrading…

    buuuut I actually liked the green statistics graphs they used to have much more than the newer orange stat bars.

    The reason? Not color, but because the old graphs used continuous lines, while the new graphs are distinct “skyscraper” bars.

    Visually speaking, the old continuous style was a better and easier visual read.

    Let’s hope they go back to the continuous style (no matter the color) or at least give an option to select your style.

  85. Scott Says:

    One of the promises to paying customers of Site Meter was that it is “ad free”.

    Now we have to look at humongous ads at the top of every page after we log in, which causes you to have to scroll down to view the very data that we are paying for.

    Looks like it might be time to find something to replace Site Meter.for my sites.

  86. Sarah Says:

    I’m all about giving time for upgrades, but I can’t even find anything that shows me what the new tool will provide. I don’t care for the new graphics, AND I have banner ads loading on every site.. isn’t that why I went premium?

    Not a happy camper. But willing to give time. :)

  87. Mauigirl52 Says:

    My issue is that I have 3 blogs with three different sitemeter accounts (all free) and it used to be that I’d get my main page and then I could click on “location” and see where my hits are coming from. Now it works on the first page but when you click on “location” it goes to the stats for whichever of my 3 blogs I’ve last logged into on Sitemeter. (When I didn’t used to have to log in at all to see these stats). So it’s very annoying to have to log out of sitemeter, then find my user name and password from my old e-mail from them, and then log in just to see that information.

    Is this being fixed, does anyone know?

  88. melanie Says:

    I really don’t like the new set-up. I have a number of sitemeters for a variety of sites, and now I have to log in and log out each time I try to view one. Before I could view any of them without logging in.

  89. Suresh Says:

    I liked it the way it was. Now I can’t get the monthly report or any of the other reports. I don’t mind the ads but don’t take away functions.

  90. Steve Says:

    It’s terrible that they make you log in now to see who is visiting even though I have it set to public. I lost my password and they haven’t sent me a new one. What a disaster. I would switch to Google Analytics but then I would have to start at zero traffic. I might switch anyway.

  91. admin Says:

    My 2 unimportant cents:
    It’s day one of this major re-launch! Give it a week or two and you will be happy again. A banner here or a login problem there is not bad at all. I saw high-end web analytics solutions, that charge $100k+ per year going down for a few days and loosing all the data. As long as your data is recorded, you are fine.

    Live tracking is something that Google Analytics is missing. Let’s see how Feedburner will affect their Analytics tool.

    I’ve been using SearchStatus for some time now and I like it but it’s somewhat buggy in the current release. Depending on where you choose to have it display itself - I tried in my Diigo toolbar and right side of statusbar - it sometimes doesn’t appear at all once the browser loads. I’ve settled on it in the left side of my statusbar and so far no problems there.

  111. admin Says:

    Thanks for the answers. I will fix the link.

  112. dr video menu Says:

    Webmasters should NOT use Google Analytics but many have no choice. Before Google baught Urchin, that product was over $250 per month to use, so for many websites, there is value to the free product. Competitive products still cost that much or more money, here is the catch. If you pay for the service the data is yours, when you use Google you give them permission to use your data, so it by no means a free service, you trade your data for the service. It is still a good value but hopefully your competitors wont get to see it too.

    Could it be yet another acquisition by the far superior Omniture?

    They did sell an additional $126 million in stocks a month or so ago to raise additional venture capital.

  119. admin Says:

    For Omniture it probably would make sense and their pricing was always pretty similiar, which always made me wonder if they already worked together.
    But do they really have the money to take over their biggest competitor? I am still betting on Yahoo, which currently doesn’t have much to offer and is unlike Microsoft not developing an own web analytics solution. Additionally with the acquisition of Right Media, they have a big client database, who should be interested in Visual Sciences.

  120. Ad Tracker Says:

    I agree. That may be the single most useless tool I’ve seen in a while. The sad thing is someone put alot of effort into developing it. For what? Yes, you can find buzz words but isn’t that what buzz is? You don’t need a tool to track it because it’s obvious. Things that make you go…hmmm.

    It will be really nice to see a javascript based solution at Alexa. Clearly, there are niches in which audience are not tech savvy enough, and very few of them have Alexa tool bar installed. Having such functionality available at a side wide level and then making the stats publicly comparable at a standard platform is a dream come true for a number of publishers.

    The problem with other free stats provider is that they are either not popular enough or they don’t provide a ranking mechanism. The ranking mechanism is a must for publishers to attract advertisers.

    german customers are lazy. most of them speak an acceptable level of english, but they’re not willing to use a platform that isn’t translated to german. basically all the copycats do nothing but rip the functionality of the ‘original’ and translate it. a few months or years down the road they sell to the highest bidder…

It’s a call-in show, streaming live from the ‘net and archived immediately after. Hope to see you there.
    Besides, who could forget most of the GoDaddy commercials?

  141. Patrick Says:

    The biggest problem is, that german consumers and users much faster than the german publishers. They want networks like Facebook, but the networks do not internationalize fast enough. That’s why we have that much low-quality-I-Just-want-to-make-money-networks.

    On IE7 the comments field is about one-half an inch wide under each solution, making it difficult to read the comments.

    Also, if you could alphabetize your list it would make it much easier to find a particular solution.

    Finally, could you add some verbiage to explain how you rated them as medium, medium+, etc.? I’d like the benefit of your insights.


  146. admin Says:

    Hi Anita,
    Thanks for your posting. Your ideas are great and will be deployed.
    Regarding your question: I sorted the different solutions based on their
    functionalities. Some of the solutions are great, but cannot really used for a business: E.G. Google Analytics has a lot of functinalites, but it is not a high-end solution, b/c there is not too much support. Still it is most probably much better than a lot of other solutions.

    I love that you are willing to provide recognition for the top contributors to your community. It is important for people to sense some form of recognition. However, my concern would be that people’s motivations for contributing will be altered by posts like this that offer “free” links. On GrokDotCom we removed the no-follow attribute from all comments a while ago but have not publicized it. I believe any one who contributes to our conversation deserves a link back. I am just not sure that publicizing ensures the best possible dialog. Just my $ .02 :-)

  151. the constant skeptic Says:

  152. admin Says:


    Fully agree. It’s not the best way to increase comments and I probably should not post about it.
    I did not even do it in order to increase comments. Probably like Grokdotkom, all I want is giving people some linklove back. If it turns out that users write nonsense, I certainly will switch it off. Time will tell :-)

    I started to review the blogs from frequent commenters and readers and gave them some linklove in this way.

  167. Anita Campbell Says:

    Widgets are great. But one of the problems with a widget that just displays other people’s blog headlines is that it seems too much like an ad block, but without the benefit of paying you like ads do.

    Plus, if it’s just going to have titles on it, then writing great titles is crucial. Most people don’t write good titles. Your titles are pretty good, but I am looking at one on the BlogRush widget and it is entitled “Hey There!” Maybe some people would click on such a title, but not me.

  168. admin Says:


    I agree with you and you make a good point with the comparison to an ad block.
    I am not even sure if titles will ever make a big difference. The average blogger puts the widget in the lower right hand side of his website. Eyetracking studies show, that this is one of the worst spots on the site. I highly doubt, that there will be a CTR higher than 0.5%.

At point 2, you should stress out that it’s not only describing the bug (”I got an error saying this & that”) but the steps that led to the problem (”I came on the site from Google search XYZ, clicked on the promo item, and when I tried to do the checkout I got error this & that”). Give as much detail as possible about the clicks and the values put in forms at each step of your visit. When describing a problem, avoid stating what “you” think is the issue and focus on facts.

    Stephane Hamel

  177. Vittorio Says:

    Great tutorial.

    Sometimes, it takes less time to record a short video of you reproducing the bug rather than taking several screenshots. I use Camtasia to do that and it is a real time saver.

    Also, if we are dealing with web applications, it is nice to ask our developers to include a custom error page that automatically sends an email to the developer every time there’s a bug, usually with the line of code that causes the problem, etc.

    And for client-side applications, a log file is of great help to the developer that needs to find out what caused the bug.

    The AdSense is even worse side of the story. Google AdSense publishers used to make about 75% of the revenue spent b the advertiser. And that was OK formula. Like any Agency Fee of 20% and 5% for handling the payments etc. Today it is the other way around. AdSense publishers get 25% of ht revenue from AdWords advertisers!

    Hello and thanks for referencing my article. I’ll accept your statement that the web analytics industry hasn’t reached its peak yet. I’ll also accept that there might be advanced web analytics out there (people often think NextStage does web analytics. We tell them we don’t. They then assume we do “advanced” web analytics which is perhaps closer to the truth).
    To your point that companies haven’t touched all the information that’s available to them, Amen!

    sell it

  245. whitneymcn Says:

    It’s a boring answer, but since it sounds like actively developing on the domain isn’t particularly interesting to you, I’d go with the math:

    1. What’s the monthly income coming from the domain right now?
    2. What % return would you need to get on investing $40k to match that amount? *

    * Remembering to factor in any tax implications on the sale…

    If the answer to #2 is in the low to middling single digits, I’d almost definitely sell.

  246. BigBerries Says:

    Try to sell it and keep a percentage. How long would it take right now to make 40k with that site? How much development would it take to increse the income? Is it currently parked or slightly developed? Maybe a partner or an affiliate program could be all you need to boost the income.

  247. admin Says:

    Thanks for all the input!

    I made the calculation many times and there is no right answer. Still I tend to sell. Also the buyer increased the offer for a substantial amount.

    Last but not least I think a top level domain with mediocre content is something that nobody wants. Especially in the domain’s niche people expect quality content and I believe that I have the responsibility to give this domain in the hands of a professional organization/company.

  248. Internet Entrepreneur Says:

    Hi, came across your blog from BlogRush.

    Have you thought about leasing the domain to the company for a monthly fee? You would remain in control of your domain but they got use of it.

    Alternatively you could sell the domain but have a contract whereby you earn a monthly revenue from the domain for the next 5 years maybe?

    Just ideas to think about.


  249. admin Says:

    Great idea Khalid. I thought about leasing it, but the interested buyer doesn’t want to lease (which is understandable).
    I kind of go back and forth…….but it makes sense to sell. It’s just stupid to keep a domain with not very good content up when somebody else can build a nice platform on it.
    I myself tried to buy a pretty good domain recently, but the owner prefers to play games and keeps it parked. Maybe this is a little strange opinion of myself, but top-level domains should be loaded with quality content and not just sit around for years and be a pain for 1000s of people.
    So. I guess I will sell it and will be excited to see someone build a great business on “my” domain ;-)

  250. Income Experts Says:

    I say keep it & use the money earned monthly to hire someone to build content into the site for you. This method will grow your monthly income. There is absolutely no reason you cannot earn $40,000 monthly. Make the decision & then take action.

    We have been focusing on passive & residual income for years. In my humble opinion, it is the best money earned!

    Bango conveniently forgot to mention in both the press release and the web site that it is only really providing analytics on subscriber activity with their payment proxy and Bango ‘buttons’.

    The metrics provide are also very basic. It only appears to report total visits, visits per country, visits per operator and visits per device. i.e. no page views, click paths, referrers, search terms, etc.

    It certainly couldn’t be used by a mobile site owner who needs to understand how users interact with their site or to have a discussion with a potential advertiser.

    Analytics is separate from our mobile billing products but leverages established technology, our global reach and strong operator relationships to give some neat stats - we can identify individual people visiting multiple times and differentiate Sprint from Boost for example.

    You can also quickly get a sample of the traffic we currently track by visiting

    Development is accelerating fast on this now we are getting some great feedback. I would love to get input from yourself and your readers. Hope you like it.

    Second Life had a choice to make. They opted for a lower res world with more features and possibilities. Its presumably easier to add new features to Second Life within the parameters they’ve set for allowing low res submissions to be added to their world. Geosim’s quality requirements for its virtual world will only slow its growth. They’ve built themselves into a bit of a corner.

    Its still really cool and really sick!!

  308. Dean Collins Says:

    Ahhh it’s nice to be a market leader and have imitators try and keep up, imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Being first to market in October last year we are in a position that since having launched Amethon Mobile Analytics there have been 6 other vendors who have now launched mobile analytics applications in one form or another.

    They all have their strengths and weaknesses (check out an independent review by Bryson Meunier of Resolution Media if you want a list of vendors).

    It’s important to point out that Amethon are still the only vendor to use Wireline Capture – so we see 100% of the traffic from the cellular phone browsers to the mobile content webservers, importantly this also means that there is no additional ‘weight’ added to the content pages through the use of page tags or pixel beacons which whilst not an issue on desktop analytics is a heavy burden on limited mobile bandwidth.

    It’s great to have more competition from Admob but as was discussed at the New York Mobile Monday panel earlier this week the real issue with using an advertisers networks analytics is you are then stuck with them. You are tied to relying on their platform to tell you how much money you spent with them, and you are also not able to track alternative competing ad network providers.

    It’s a great solution when it’s free but free always has strings in one form or another.

  309. Sarah at Bango Says:

    We respect AdMob for what it has done to kick start the mobile ad revolution but in our experience, marketers place ads across a number of ad networks so it’s important they get independent stats on what’s working. Are you going to get that independence from one ad network? That’s why the likes of Omniture and Coremetrics have an important role to play in the PC world. We believe the same will happen on mobile. We launched Bango Analytics in February so marketers could track the success of their mobile ad campaigns - - with that independence upmost in our minds. Read the Tapatap case study at to see how they use Bango Analytics as an independent auditing tool.

    That is an interesting article. In our experience website owners find it difficult to understand visitor behaviour even with good systems such as Google Analytics.

    We have recently come across an excellent piece of software that not only allows them to monitor individual user behaviour in real time, but also facilitates direct engagement between visitor and user. This has been increasing conversions by an average of 15% in the websites we have implemented it in.

  323. Dean Collins Says:

    Hi Sebastian,

    Dean from Amethon here.

    I think it must be pointed out that this isn’t providing location based information for web analytics.

    This location based information can only be provided to applications and not just web content providers, so for example there would be no way for you as a mobile content provider to determine the location of my mobile handset when i browse to your website.

    The only way location information can be provided is if you have some type of apple game or business application and when i run this application it passes your location to the site….and only when this application is running can it do so, once it’s switched off it’s done.

    Trust me, Amethon and all the other mobile web analytics companies would love to provide location based information to our clients, unfortunately with todays mobile o/s platforms this isn’t possible.

    If anyone has an alternative method of providing location based information through a browser session we’d love to talk.

    BTW I downloaded Squace, was interesting but wondering how the content providers feel about their content being wholesale repurposed with none of the advertising / credit being passed back to them?

    Although the conference sounds pretty interesting, I am more interested in learning how this technology can be useful in marketing one’s business or is there such a thing.

    I am always looking for innovative, reasonably priced methods in which to enhance marketing. Marketing, whether it be online or offline, can be challenging to most folks, especially those who are new to the arena of owning a business.

    Learning how to market was one of the challenges I had to overcome prior to joining my current business opportunity. I always thought the products and services I had to offer were great, but no one cared because I was not able to get my products or services in front of enough people who would either buy or become a participant in my business.

    First of all for the author of this blog, thanks for the review.

    @Nachtjaeger : you’re full of sh*. and is not compareable.

    First of all we have an extensive API that can be used to develop applications on. Second we have a linux + windows client that allows you to punch (start/stop/track) from your taskbar.

    So tell me, why would beat for easy of use ?
    And how can you compare your customer support to ours, if you haven’t tried it ?

  334. Nachtjaeger Says:

    Hey Seb! Thanks for contacting me…sure, I can give you any type of info you want about tsheets. What did you have in mind? Do you want to know about the whole system, or just the bits and pieces that pertain to mobile blogging? Just lemme know, I’d be happy to help!

  335. chetan Says:

    Hi all

    Can any one tell me how to integrate this API in our application please


  336. dean collins Says:

    Hi Sebastian,

    Thanks for the mention. We were also online for the Admob webinar.

    Being free is a great advantage for a lot of smaller content providers as our starting point is $250 a month for 1million page views or less per month, however our analytics solution is already better, all of the functionality listed has been available since V1.4 (and then some), recently we launched version 1.5 which has extensive segmentation around additional demographic information eg. average page views for males/females or average bandwidth consumption for New York users Vs San Francisco users.

    Admob isn’t the first free mobile analytics technology to be made available, since we launched the very first mobile specific mobile analytics solution onto the market over a year ago we’ve seen a number of very reasonable free analytics providers launch .

    It’s nice to be imitated but I think all of our customers consider their monthly Amethon license fee a great investment in the very best mobile analytics technology available and as there are no long term contracts (amethon is a month to month only commitment) they are free to try out alternative providers at any time.

    Dean Collins

  337. admin Says:

    Hey Dean,

    Thanks for your input and I certainly agree that Amethon and others can keep up and even be better than Admob.
    However I noticed that Admob made the biggest noise out of every mobile analytics solution (which is certainly not fair, but should be an incentive for Amethon and other to get their name out more effectively).

    On my part I will come up with a comparison of the different solutions, so the readers can get a full picture of where each mobile analytics solution stands.

    Thanks again,

  338. dean collins Says:

    Yep I get sent a copy of all their press announcements every day (thanks google alerts) so I see all of the announcements …. not a lot of them actually talk about analaytics, lots of press about number of ads served in this country or that country, which is great - but If I’m using admob for my analytics I’d like to see them talking about advances they are making in analytics, not how big the ‘other’ part of their business is.

    It’s the same I guess as google analytics, apart from buying urchin and making it free google has pretty much been a one hit wonder in desktop analytics. Sure everyman and his dog installs it and then remembers to look at it once or twice…. but when you have people who live and die by their daily numbers they are off using Omniture, Webtrends,….. Amethon etc etc

    I’m very happy their is a free service out there because I see a lot of mobile content providers who call me here in the Amethon New York office but they have zero revenue model so $250 a month is too much for them, now I have someone that I can can reccomend to them. Not being a wireline capture technology it wont be as good as Amethon with all of it’s capabilities but maybe it’s enough to get them started.

  343. dean collins Says:

    I always give away free consulting services….the first 30 minutes exactly, after that it’s on the books or they are on their own.

    Because of the reputation I’ve picked up in the NY startup space people often approach me for help or advice either online or in person at speaking events - unless I’m really really under the gun with other projects my answer is always “come have a sit down with me in my office tomorrow and I’ll see what I can do for you in the first 30 minutes atfer that my rates are XXX per hour”.

    About 50% of the time I can solve their problem in 30 mins, or we both come to the conlusion I’m not the right person for the project (but with my rolodex I almost always have someone to reccomend that they can talk to);
    The other 50% about half weren’t able to fund my hourly rate and half are so impressed with what advice I was able to give in the 30 mins that they sign on for a fixed number of hours consulting agreement with a decision to review after that period is up.

    Eitherway it’s a fast and easy way to get to a situation where both parties are happy and have gotten something done.

  358. d.b. echo Says:

    Who uses IE anyways?

    I do. And 61% of my visitors do, according to my SiteMeter.

    But it’s probably precisely that sort of attitude that led to SiteMeter implementing this change without bothering to test it with Internet Explorer.

    I do love Firefox, though. The js3250.dll in it bug continues to provide me with a steady stream of visitors searching for ways to fix it.

    When that stream dries up, I’ll consider reinstalling Firefox. Until then, who needs a browser that spontaneously crashes as often as Firefox does?

  359. Michael J Says:

    Didn’t appreciate webmeter taking my business website down with it- no apology, no notification. Had to physically remove the html code from all my pages (137 pages) and it took me three hours. Now it is supposedly fixed. Wonder how many customers and sales that I lost because of this?????

  360. Randall Says:

    85% of our traffic uses IE. Our site was affected at 6:30 pm PDT on Friday.

    We had to scrounch around the web to identify the problem, and could not get all pages handled until 6:30 am the following morning.

    I do not believe Sitemeter handled this properly, or with any measure of speed. An announcement could have (and should have) been placed on their site as soon as the problem was recognized. They could have reversed the coding change, and should have. I’m sure whoever caused this ‘back-end coding’ glitch either knew it within minutes, or should have.

    I’m sure many sites lost money, with an average downtime of 8 hours or more. Don’t be surprised for sites to start tallying those losses and consider their options for recovery of real damages.

    I’m not happy, and do not expect to allow the sitemeter to operate for us again until all their changes (as announced over the next few days) are finished.

    How ridiculous to initiate changes without testing in all browsers… irresponsible.

  361. admin Says:

    Oh goes down one night on a Friday. Try to call or Microsoft. I think stuff like this happens and people should not make such a big deal about it. My site goes down once in a while and it sucks, but hey…that’s life.

  362. Sal Vincent Says:

    Sitemeter fails to test their changes on the world’s most popular browser, they deploy those changes untested to hundreds of partners withot warning, and your response is — “you are all losers, you should switch to Firefox”.

    Could you be any more clueless and out of touch? This is the year 2008, and you are still using every pretext to prattle on about how “special” you are just because you use a different browser? It is getting really old.

    I have a dongle (lucky me). I plug it into my laptop and get 3G internet here in the UK, in most towns and cities. Where 3G isn’t available, I can usually get 2G unless you’re out in the middle of nowhere without even a mobile phone (sorry, cell) signal. Whilst the cost is reasonable here in the UK (£10 / month for 1GB data transfer) it costs a fortune if you go abroad. For example, if I were to use it in France, it would cost £6 / Mb. Do you have similar connectivity in the US?

    Please note the “ilovemobileweb” awards were not created by nor they administered by the company dotMobi; they are a program of the dotMobi Advisory Group ( — an independent industry association — and will be administered by Informa. The company dotMobi is providing smart phones to winners of the six categories, which are part of a package of prizes each winner will receive.

    The “ilovemobileweb” awards are the upcoming Mobile Web Europe event, which is part of a new series of events that includes Mobile Web Americas (premiered in January 2008) and Mobile Web Asia (to premier in 2009). That series is the official event series of the dotMobi Advisory Group and again are being run by Informa.

    I volunteered to be a judge of the “ilovemobileweb” awards because I see a LOT of sites on a daily basis, have a good sense of what is or isn’t “good” from an end-user angle and I’m pretty darn impartial.

    As I said in my comments to Mr. Walsh, if the dotMobi Advisory Group really wanted to “weight” these awards, they wouldn’t have opened them to competition at all.

    It’s not suitable for everday use yet as it hangs with flash and other apps, you can’t install some stuff, and some sites just don’t work.

    It’s missing addons and google toolbar which means no seo guy will use it either.

    Did anyone see these numbers out of the CTIA this morning? 75 Billion Messages for the month of June alone. Unreal. When we introduced Interlinked Media to the United States market in July of 2006, we (the USA) were only doing about 12 billion messages per month in the aggregate. When we convinced the Hillary Clinton campaign that they should be using text messages as a primary means of connecting with their voters, that number had “swollen” to nearly 18 billion messages per month. Now we have these numbers 75 billion messages for June…a 6 fold increase over when we started.

    Is there any doubt that this medium is going to be around for a while? From Presidential campaigns to Brands it has been great fun to be working at the forefront of this technology. I can only imagine what the next three years will bring! Michael Anderson, VP Business Dev Interlinked Media.

    I won’t be using Sitemeter anymore. Some of the free features are no longer free, there are more ads, it’s much more difficult to navigate, I can’t get a quick overview of the two main things I cared about (referring URLs and outclicks). It’s a free service, so I can’t really complain, but I am sad to lose it.

  386. Afewthoughts Says:

    As a long time user of Spreadshirt, I think ‘copycattism’ is really a poor term and one that doesn’t justify the topic. People have been printing on clothing since time immemorial, and the idea that Cafepress has some sort of magical lock on the POD (print on demand) market is also nonsense. What Spreadshirt set out to do was make *quality* print on demand and by a very different printing method which uses fused plastic. It is night and day between Spreadshirt and Cafepress on everything from customer service to garment quality. One could as well have Google give a talk about cloning and the search market. They didn’t do it first, but they did it far better and by a more innovative and useful method. At some point it’s all splitting hairs.

  387. admin Says:

    It’s not about spreadshirt. It’s about investing in high evaluated US clones such as StudiVZ, a Facebook clone (currently under investigation).
    I am not sure, but I assume it will be a self-promotion tour of their newly created fund. All tips and tricks how to avoid being “cloned” by copycats can be said in about 5 minutes.

  388. David Says:

    If you really want to be paranoid, try Google Ad Planner, and see the type of data that is out there already. I think msn analytics is more of a worry, since they have your details on what software you have been using for years, and the amount of demographic information that they can provide is almost scary.

    I do like that AdsSpy tool, it seems something fun to play with, but im wondering if it is like other tools like keywordspy that often leave tracks on their server/analytics data that someone has been researching the company?

    You say that you use your own inhouse solutions for analytics, but i notice Google Analytics is running atm…?

    good topic for an article!

  389. Matt Cutts Says:

    I can stop the conspiracy theory before it starts. :) I have no ownership or influence with any of these domains in any way. My best guess is that either made a mistake or more likely someone is copying the Urchin analytics ID from my blog (either as a joke or as a scraper or if a snippet of my blog somehow showed up on a page on another site).

    If you look at for example, there are three different Urchin ids listed for that domain.

  390. admin Says:

    Thanks for your input. Would have been strange anyways….

  391. Martin Says:

    Why do you think, it should be able to tear down walled gardens? Over here in Europe, mobile Internet seemed quite open to me - rather the applications and users were lacking - but users were free to go wherever they wished.

    IMHO the G1 is like the iPhone, it comes bundled with a powerful platform, but is strongly focussed on its vendors’ products (where is Exchange on Android or alternative navigation on the iPhone…). I’d believe any Windows mobile based handset to be more extensible than these devices, when it comes to the choice of applications etc.

    In my view, iPhone and G1 are changing behaviour via the bundled-contracts, but isn’t this just an upstream shift of the profits

    I wonder how many good analysts are really out there. You will find that many people are great BS artists, but when it comes time to prove themselves, they will fail the test with a passion. Analytics really isn’t hard to learn, you just have to know which information to look for, and figure out why it is important to your business. It is very easy to get lost in the amounts of data that analytics can provide, but isolating the important information is crucial if you want the data to mean anything.

    It’s interesting to see that people are starting to do this (seed Digg plus slashdot, reddit, etc). Especially in the UK people are seeing it as a method of gathering more traffic. Why is this popular - for the big newspapers it helps enhance their Unique User figures so that they can charge their advertisers more.

    I think that you tend to miss some of the bigger picture when you do this - you should be using the comments that the users put in to help generate your new content - this is like free research into your online community. Most people are too worried about increasing visitors to get into the head of the users.

    And half the time inceasing the visitors and page impressions doesn’t do anything because they don’t sell out their ad inventory anyway - they’re just making it worse.

    Of course there are advantages to this traffic in terms of conversions if you do it properly - improved inbound links, higher rankings because of it, long tail conversions, etc.

  414. Matt Says:

    This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve read in a while (and I work for Yahoo!). The reason why Google had a good 3rd quarter is because advertisers are re-allocating their ad budgets from traditional forms of advertising - like newspaper and magazine - to search advertising. Not because Google can control their destiny. If that was the case, Yahoo! could do the same and they’d never post a poor quarter.

Keep the site and build it to create residual income. In 4-5 years your business and the value of the website itself will far outweigh the quick cash you could get from it today.

    Has anyone done that here? i have started to use the {creative} tag from value track but the adwords API says that is not unique? does anyone know of the correct solution for tracking adwords clicks in house?

    I think you are spot on with the eggs in one basket comments!

    How many times do google change the rules without as much as a whisper.

    Any alternative that can be used to gauge against google can only be a good thing in my eyes!

    Google Chrome by my standards is not quite up to par with IE or Firefox, but has hope. It is to basic, not anough features, and does not display some web pages propperly.
    It needs work still and with improvement may be a good deal yet.

  436. questions and answers Says:

    I think Google put it out early just to get feed back and work out alot of the kinks. It is not firefox.. but yet firefox was pretty bare bones to start with at first also.

    Good replacement for Analytics is Piwik. It runs on your own server.

    It’s opensource, so in the worst case you can code something that’s already missing there.

    BTW there is another tool that seems to be better than AdsSpy - it’s SameOwner - not only it searches by Google Analytics IDs and AdSense IDs (and some other IDs like Kontera and YPN), it also detects sites that include some site using IFRAME. Most of partked or cybersquatted domains use IFRAMEs to show same content on several domains.

  457. Nick Says:

    There is an even better service than Ads Spy - it’s It does what Ads Spy does, but it knows 5 times more sites (e.g. it knows 3M sites with google analytics while ads spy knows only 620k). Also it can show sites that include site in question using FRAME or IFRAME (often used for parked domains or domain aliases).

  458. Alexander van Duijn Says:

    Sad to see the amount of real spam in the comments since this should be a constructive discussion on Google page rank.

    Tools like Google Page Rank are nice tools to gain some insight. However your main focus should be the people visiting your site. Give them the content they are looking for in a structured way will help a lot in getting results.

    Actually gold has done well in the past 8 years even though it took a tumble recently. I think that is odd since the dollar is so devalued.

    On the domain name topic, I do think that you will see alot of values over the next few years. But I would at least do something with them. Put a blog on them or something. I wouldn’t just leave them to gather dust. I see too many parked domains. I feel that Google will get wise to these parked assets and will blacklist them, making them nearly worthless.

    I for one am concerned about my PR. I am a Real Estate Agent, and I have a faily busy site, but I can’t get past PR3.
    I work alot on my site, am still learning, but know enough to sound like I know what I am talking about. Any way, when I run a W3c check, it shows 550 errors. I called my web site people, and they told me that the errors, which by the way is their coding errors, would not affect my SEO. I ran a check on other POINT2AGENTS sites on Activerain, and not even the busiest site in Canada, was more than a PR3. Is someone their pulling my leg or what? I also think that google is not giving backlink credit, because it more or less, ignore sites with so many errors…HELP

  472. Online Flowers Delivery Shop Says:

    WMT’s geo-targeting tool could help very much with that as well. Here’s a very informative video from Google

    The video seems to claim that WMT could take care of #1 TLD and #2 Hosting IP. I really hope that that would true and that WMT would be robust and reliable in delivering the geo-targeting.

    For certain smaller communities, while #3 and #4 are still important, and inorder to rank well, often times, the total no. of non-local BLs will overwhelm #3 and #4.

    i have ad my accounts locked twice because my son owes paypal money- same last name, guilty for sure. i had to have customers put in a refund to get there money back as i could not at the time afford to send product withno money received.

    i was told my account would be released when (I) paid is bill of $1200.00. Are they crazy, they pretend to be the same as a bank with all the benefits, but are under entirely rules since they are not and can hold your funds as long as they like. I have tried twice with them, now i use alert pay.
    they held my money for 1 year the first time and 6 months the last. You just keep waiting and checking and eventually after about 6 mo they release and you need to get the funds out fast. And do not look back.

    they refund to people no matter your proof of mailing if not through there system which you also pay for. What out this is a learning experice. Unfortuantely for me i am a slow learning and it took me 2 tries.

    If there are travel site owners reading this post, I would like to refer them to the Aussie Travel Saver site, based in Melbourne, they are registered travel agents, and require publishers to help launch their card. “Aussie” have a really good product, and partnerships with large operators.

    I came across various sites mentioning YSE returns BLs in the order of significance, ie the most important BL at the top.

    From my observation however, I’ve seen some sites with the top few BLs of PR0, with some other higher PR5, 4, etc further down. In addition, some other sites that has the Yahoo Directory link has some other seemingly less authoritative BLs listed higher then the Y! BL.

    I wonder if this claim is valid, greatly appreciate some enlightening here. Thanks!

    Thanks for your input….I guess it’s all about scale. If you are able to get 20k people following you and you need that traffic….well..lthen it makes sense. However if you put the time together that you waste on Twitter … it really going to always pay off to send 140 characters of nonsense around the world?

  529. Mike Post Says:

    Great article, it answered several questions I’ve had for a while. Please continue posting these. :) Regards, Mike

    If the whole purpose of analytics is to increase conversions then we might also focus on the selection of keywords to be ‘buying’ and action-taking keywords as opposed to info-seeking keywords. Geoff.

    That sucks… i do prefer sitemeter to google anaylitcs… Hope it would be fixed soon the ajax problem.


  539. equipamentos industriais Says:

    it´s a good tool, but the mainly problem in those tools like futere pagerank checker, backlinks checker is the accuracy. But it´s valid to have a good idea of traffic.

    Great tip!

  551. Brett Dugan Says:

    An amalgamation by 2 corporate giants such as these usually end up with positive results; for the companies as well as the clients. I just hope the same went for this merger.

  552. Brett Dugan Says:

    To be truthful, I have never trusted the numbers by Alexa and Hitwise. With small and big sites, the numbers just always seem wrong to me. Comscore is something I would like to try in the future, although it sounds like you need quite the traffic to pull accurate numbers.

  553. Quang Says:

    This looks cool. I wish there were some options to control indexing such as modifying keywords, etc.

  554. Pet Fence Says:

    On the move I do not think that many person would like to see those statistics. They would love to do important task instead of that.

    However on the move I do tweeting from my iPhone.

  570. colourless green Says:

    Your own lack of willingness to pay 37$ on a, what, 1200$ flight exemplifies the tragedy of the commons that we live in.

    The 37$ is the cost of the carbon that you’re off-gassing. The problem, as you rightfully point out, is where is that money going? Is it buying up carbon credits and not allowing further credits? Is it being used to make low-carbon industry, renewable energy? What is it really doing?

    Once that can be answered, these sorts of programmes will be better used. But unless you’re willing to voluntarily pay for your pollution, there’s no reason why anyone else would either. We’re all in this together.

    Good thing I don’t have an iphone! I’ve had to work really hard not to check my adsense every hour while I’m working. This would let me check when I’m mobile! Yikes!

  573. Karl Foxley Says:

    Now I can add another cool time waster to my day… I’m a stat-a-holic and this will just be another ‘poor’ excuse for me to quickly check my Adsense earnings, much to the frustration of my long suffering wife. :)

  582. V Says:

    Finally, I found the fix for my case of “Sorry — your last action could not be completed” from ebay to paypal. It’s not the frame as one website said. It’s simply that I got an expired credit card and a PO BOX associated with that credit card. So I simply replace that credit card with another credit card that has the billing address of my apartment. Then delete the PO BOX address from my profile and I was able to confirm and pay.

  583. CSS Perk Says:

And to think, I tell my kids I grew up in a time without the internet, cable TV, a microwave, and Pong was my favorite Atari game.

  627. Boston Web Design Says:

    I have a few blogs with Adsense and they do OK… but the question have is… when is Google going to cancel this program? The more nonsense autoblogs are vreated just for Adsense revenue the worse Google searches will become. How do they balance between the quality of their search results and returning an Adsense site which could generate them revenew. They could easilt bute the hand that feeds them!

  628. Rick Daley Says:

  682. Jean-Francois Beaulieu Says:

    Curious but the gray bar syndrome is strinking lots of sites now. How can you know accuratelly the PR in 70% of the cases? ‘Current page is not ranked by Google’, 2 weeks later you get back your PR 2 or 3 and 3 months later is vanish. I think that this problem with the toolbar is not a bug, it’s a deliberate policy from Google.

  683. SEO Packages Says:

    It smacks of the analyst getting paralized by the details to me. Useful for selling your client on the results of your web marketing efforts on his behalf. But I don’t think it is of much use to the client - except to help him realise just how transient the peaks from individual marketing campaigns can be - i.e. the peaks in visitor numbers that result from each splurt of marketing activity, followed by a return to the baseline.

    Yeah, Justin is a nice kind of seo. Young, but he has realy a huge knowledgement about seo and what other calls social media. The last time i had nice speakings to him via skype. If i didnt know, i would never expect that he is only 14. So Justin, keep up that good work, make your education at school and become a big player in the www in future times. Best wishes

    Hi all,

    Web Anaylsis is more than a science, it involves interpretation, which of course is subjective. Therefore competition and exchange of concepts, stats etc is good business. A single source of exchange can be manipulated; so welcome to

    Will help much!

    As Chellgrove Office Chairs said above. This kind of data might be fun to play with, but really unless you can map it to conversions, then it’s all kind of pointless.

    Acredito que está briga vai longe pois recentemente a microsoft lançou uma ferramenta de SEO semelhante a ferramenta de webmaster do google. Também ouvi rumores que os search engines estão se unindo para se aproximar ao google.

    Parabéns pelo blog

  706. mudanças transportes carretos transportadoras Says:

    I believe that it is fight goes therefore recently the Microsoft far launched a similar tool of SEO the tool of webmaster of google. Also I heard rumors that search engines is if joining to come close itself to google. Congratulations for blog

  710. AdWords Tool Says:

    AdWords reports can sometimes give you valuable information that you can get with webanalyics.

  711. Automated Solutions Says:

    All I can say is WOW! Its nice to know this kid has a future career ahead of him. Stay in school buddy because thats the most important thing right now.

  712. Improve Business Productivity Says:

    I never realized that hosting the site locally would make a difference. However, I was aware that having a local TLD would help rankings…it only makes sense. If not all the .coms would be ahead of the game in UK listings.

  713. brindes corporativos Says:

    I think it will be a great improvement in the SEO, PPC and WA worlds. It will generate a lot of tools integrating all these kind of areas. Another very nice initiative from Google.

  714. internet marketing expert Says:

    Wile everybody wants their site to receive a top 10 ranking in Google, it’s just not possible for everyone.

    And this is especially true if you’ve got a brand new site. New sites that have been crawled by the Googlebot are sometimes given a decent ranking in Google for a few days before they plunge to the depths of Neverworld.

  715. Internet Hosting Says:

    I’m completely fascinated by Twitter right now—in much the same way I was by blogging four years ago, and by ICQ years before that.

    If you haven’t tried it yet, Twitter is a site that allows you to post one-line messages about what you’re currently doing—via the web interface, IM, or SMS. You can limit who sees the messages to people you’ve explicitly added to your friends list, or you can make the messages public.

  716. Tai Slim Says:

    I like that analysis graph. Is there any tool/service that can generate such analytics? Can I do this in my Google analytics?

    Please help.

  717. Bill Says:

    What a way for Google to boost its market share for analytics. Microsoft is a good example of a company so big that it can strong arm other companies and standards. Now Google is following in Microsoft’s shoes? The FTC should be involved in this.

  718. Bill Says:

    One of my biggest issues with Google Analytics is that the stats are not real time and most of the data is hours old. Does Yahoo Analytics update any quicker? Regardless, I am glad to see an alternative to Google Analytics. Some people prefer not to share any data with the 800 pound Gorilla (Google) and Yahoo gives webmasters a choice.

  721. Tracy's Internet Marketing Says:

    Nice article and interesting apps to look into.

    It is really amazing how much technology has advanced in the last 20 years or so. I too remember the days of no internet, cable TV and Atari.

    Now I don’t know what I would do without internet.

    “Starbucks sells one Latte per 23 toilet flushes”….How crazy is that?

    I think that the metric was right on. Th emore important thing is what that metric represents. A slow but determined destruction of the wood in your house. A better statement would be that prevention is far better then cure.

    good job

  724. effective link building service Says:

    Nice post! I’m using the SEObook firefox add-on, works great for me!

    As for stats, I don’t want to ‘plug’ but, I’ve been using Getclicky as my stats software for a couple of my websites, I suggest you take a look! Pretty awesome!

    Keep up the good work!


  725. Paginas Web Lima Says:

    Is this nofollow or dofollow?

  726. Las Vegas Real Estate Club Says:

    I actually did SEO for 2 similiar sites but one had a local TLD and of course their rankings were much higher than the .com in the UK search engines.

  727. Bill Says:

    I can see the value in receiving reports on JS errors. I personally check my site for html validation and css validation, but checking JS errors is something I admit to not doing. I try to keep most of my pages short, but I can see how monitoring the scrolling activity of users can be useful. Low scroll rates might be an indicator that the content towards the top of the page simply is not compelling enough for visitors to scroll. It’s good to see ClickTale expand on its core features, which most people know that to be watching movies of user click patterns.

    What does the stats use for..

  729. CMS Website Joomla Says:

    Free links are always nice of course! Thx..

  730. CMS Website Joomla Says:

    If you use Google webmastertools for your site, you can set the target area, so I guess in that case it doesn’t matter on what server your website is located…

  731. Gladys Calladine Says:

    thanks for sharing. i’v got the differences.

  732. Usability Testing Says:

    This tool sounds very interesting. I’ve worked on many projects where the specs were reviewed during a series of spec review meetings and then the prototypes for testing were reviewed by a different set of people. Being able to use a tool like this sure seems like it would result in clearer communication throughout the product development process.

  733. Howie Schwartz Says:

    Great article! When is the next conference? These tips and tools are so helpful.

    China is a good place to visit, i still have not get a chance to visit there, hopefully i can visit there in 1 day.

    This is a very good post indeed. And an informative one at that. Thanks for sharing this to us.

  739. Golden Age Cheese Says:

    Very interesting post. The only question I have is why choose Kraft when there are thousands of better cheddar cheeses available? When Kraft offers an extra sharp cheddar it is mild cheddar at best. The real stuff (extra sharp or super sharp cheddar cheese) is aged at least 5 years. Informative post either way - thanks for sharing.

    Ajax is very smart! But I don’t think it will do the job! Although, nothing is impossible!

    nice article. I’ve often wondered about domain investments. I’ve mostly stuck to stocks, but with the recent downturn, I’m looking to learn more into domain investing. I’ve been spending some time checking out Are there any other good domain sites?

  755. Cherie Says:

    I tried clicktale a while ago, and was unhappy with the way it seemed to slow rendering time of my pages.

    Like the others said, I’d be keen to see a side by side comparison of the two. I guess I’ll try userfly to see if it loads a bit quicker.

    Thanks for bringing this one to our attention!


  756. Cherie Says:

    That is just too funny.

    As you said, bing it on!

  757. Cherie Says:

    That’s a lot of fun.

    I see @aplusk has around half a million more followers than CNN now. :)

    Well knowing the areas where the mouse movement we can embed the buttons there for desired conversion on our sites.

  763. Brendan Wenzel Says:

    Thank you very much for sharing that presentation on KPI and metrics. There is still a lot I don’t know nor understand about metrics and how to use them on my sites. It seems like I might have just found the perfect place to change that. Thanks!

    We have developed a new web analytics service that allows you to watch the traffic on your site in real-time. We also provide other powerful tools and charts to analyse the popularity of the pages on your site.

  765. Robert Marketing Says:

    It´s very useful!
    The problem is accuracy of results. I had similar problems with tools because the results were similar to those provided by Google.

    People should remember that good social network is 90% value add and only 10% or less spamming the heck out of your stuff.

  769. Memory Says:

    I think what is useful to create different interfaces for Google Analytics. For example a SEO dashboard in a AIR application to desktop.

    Hi Sebastian,
    Thanks for using Job-a-matic. We’ve made a lot of improvements to the Job-a-matic publisher platform in the last year, so I wanted to clarify a few of the points that you mentioned:
    1. Yes, we require either PayPal information or a W-9 to process your payment.
    2. We do syndicate jobs to publishers, and many of these clicks are paid on a PPC basis. Most publishers love this feature, but you can disable this in the admin panel.
    3. The alert screenshot that you highlighted was poorly formed HTML, not malware. It has since been removed.

    Thanks for highlighting these issues, and feel free to contact me directly at francis (at) simplyhired (.) com
