There are a number of web analytics tools, but they’re not all created equal. With some, there’s a delay of up to a day before you have access to visitor data.
Not so with Clicky. Clicky is a free web analytics tool, designed to provide hyper-detailed information about your site visitors and their activities. With Clicky, you get real time specifics- location, language, operating system, browser, and screen resolution- for each visitor and a log of their every click on your site. Clicky is Ajax and Flash-friendly, so interactions that were hard to track before are now possible.
Clicky has you covered in the information delivery department too, with a slew of widgets and plugins:
- iGoogle Clicky Dashboard- mimics your real Clicky dashboard in look and functionality, displaying all available traffic data.
- Windows Vista Sidebar Gadget- displays basic daily stats in your sidebar; details are a mere click away.
- Feedburner RSS- get your Clicky stats in a convenient RSS feed.
- WordPress Plugin- integrates seamlessly in your self-hosted Wordpress blog. Automatically tag blog visitors for analysis.
Of course, if you prefer the old fashioned way, Clicky offers its own user-friendly interface. To get started, create a Clicky account and add your site(s). Clicky will generate a two-line code, unique to each registered site, to place on your site. The basic service is free, but premium plans are available. Every new sign-up gets a free 21-day trial of the Professional service, which goes for $9.99/ month.
Remember, web data is so important, you might just want to use multiple services to make sure you’re not missing something.
