Awesome Site Stats – Get Clicky

If you have a website it is only natural that you would like to know the people who visit your site. Where are they from? How did they get there? Where did they go? The solution is far easier then you might think.

There are so many free web analytical options available, you may wonder which is the right one for you. If you really want to know the thick information about your visitors you might want to check out the ever popular Google Analytics. Observant readers might notice that I didn’t link you to Google, instead I’m going to suggest you try something new, refreshing and cool.

I want you to Get Clicky and start having fun! Go try out their demo and be astonished at how awesome they are. I have never had so much fun, or thought I could learn so much about the visitors to my simple blog. Clicky has a damn awesome interface that I am sure you will love. So what are you waiting for?

If you are smart enough to give it a shot you can be hooked up in a few minutes. Add the 1-2 lines of javascript into your website’s footer and in under minutes the stats will start showing.

I can’t stress enough that Clicky has a beautiful graphical dashboard that is highly intuitive. If your like me and you had fun just playing with the demo then you will have even more fun when the stats are on your own website. Currently Clicky monitors three of my websites and I may soon add a 4th.

Interested in some of the really neat features that Clicky offers? Well here you go:

  1. See every click by every visitor
  2. Track outbound links
  3. Spy – a live view of your web site (I might be watching right now!)
  4. Google Maps integration
  5. Detailed visitor geography (Way more then just Google Maps)
  6. Get your stats via RSS feeds

Put to use some of those free tools available online. Most importantly, have fun using them! Clicky is constantly updating their site and I have seen numerous improvements and extra features suddenly appear. I am more than pleased, and I hope you like them as much as I have.

Giveaway of the Day

One website that I have been visiting daily for the past month is Giveaway of the Day. Not your average free software website, instead they offer programs that normally cost $15 to $35 dollars absolutely free! The only catch is that you have to download and install the program in the 24 hour timespan, and you will have the full registered version, not a trial! As far as I know these programs are for Windows only.

Great idea all around, and the software isn’t that bad! I have found a number of useful programs for web development and image editing. It is always a pleasure to see what they will offer next, and the rating that programs receive, either a thumbs up or down from all the users who have downloaded the software that day.

In case you are browsing their website you may happen upon their freeware library, which launched late in December. I try to know what great free software exists and their library is not that bad.

Head on over and check them out. For those heavy RSS feed readers grab their RSS for a quick way look at what they offer each day. Give some software a try you will be impressed at the quality of most of the applications.
