True, a bit paid, but more on that later. First I want to thank fellow blogger Doofy for telling his readers about my spring marathon course on earnings in burzhuneta.
In general, today's post will be devoted to services that allow you to track sites and even individual pages from which traffic flows to your site, but it was through this article from SearchEngineJournal that I found a statistics collection service that I will use for future projects.
But let's get everything in order. So, how do you know where your visitors are coming from?
The following services will help you (in order to improve quality):
Sitemeter. The data that this service provides is not complete, but the counter is free and is incredibly simple to install.
From disadvantages we can note the lack of sorting, mixing sources of search traffic and sites from which visitors come, open statistics for free users and only one domain per account.
Hittail. The service is intended primarily for collecting statistics on long keywords, but it also provides data on referral sites.
Benefits : The service shows the exact time when the transition to the site was made. You can export data to Excel. You can also exclude unwanted referrals from the list. Multiple domains per account.
Disadvantages : Limited filter and sorting capabilities. Lack of statistics on individual referral sites.
Google Analytics. In general, the tool is powerful (I wrote many times about how to use it for optimization purposes), but in terms of tracking traffic sources, it is far from ideal.
Benefits : Shows visitor statistics (total number of visitors, time on the site, percentage of refusals, number of pages per visit, percentage of new visits) for each individual referral. Ample opportunities for data sorting.
Disadvantages : There is no direct link to the page from which visitors are coming (this is really not enough, for the past week the blog has been receiving consistently good traffic from Searchengines, and the topic itself (topics) I can not find, maybe they cover the mat, it’s already worth the dust, but I don’t know 🙂 - note).
GetClicky. Currently the most convenient service for tracking traffic sources.
Benefits : Shows the latest links to the site. Shows unique links and domain names. Allows you to set the time s e frame and see how many backlinks were received for the specified period.
Disadvantage : Limit the number of page impressions per day (most likely costs for an additional fee because there are monsters like Mashable, Smashing Magazine and pr. - note).
This is the service I intend to use for my sites. He, of course, is not free, but judging by the comparative characteristics, it’s his money o it. And, by the way, they have a full trial for 21 days - there is enough time for testing.
With support: Hosting for blogs with pre-installed WordPress - I use it myself and I highly recommend it to you.
