Monitor Your Web Site Traffic in Real-Time

Join the Wait List – Beta Starts in September

Web Traffic WatchWe are fast approaching the Web Tracking Watch application launch. Soon you will be able to watch your visitor traffic in real-time in what we like to call a lite-app – a 320px wide application which runs in it’s own window or on your iPhone.

The benefit of a “lite-app” is you can push it to the side of your screen so you can work and watch your site traffic at the same time.

With Web Traffic Watch you will see:

  • Visitors interacting with your site in near real-time (refreshes within 10 seconds)
  • How many pages each visitor has visited
  • What site referred each visitor
  • What the last page was that each visitor visited
  • Level of visitor interest – lead tracking color codes each profile to show “hot” and “cold” leads
  • Total number of visits for the current day
  • Total number of conversions for the current day

Web Traffic Watch will be a limited beta when it launches in September. To get on the wait list, please visit the Web Traffic Watch beta page and sign up today.

Web Traffic Watch

Friday, August 14th, 2009

We continue to make progress on our new tool for watching visitor traffic on your site. We’re currently working on the user interface and working out some of the bugs.

Next week we’ll be adding a form for people to join the Web Traffic Watch beta. This will be very limited in the beginning due to the load it puts on the servers. If you want to join this beta you will need to be part of the Marketing for Mavens beta. You can sign up for the Marketing for Mavens beta today and be ready to get in on the Web Traffic Watch beta when it starts in a few weeks.

Real-Time Web Site Visitor Analysis Application Update

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Progress is being made on the new Marketing for Mavens lite app. It’s taking longer than anticipated to get the AJAX working but it’s getting close. Once I’m at a point where visitors are updated, added, and deleted correctly, I’ll be able to work on the design. We’re still a ways off from making this app available but I’ll continue to provide updates.

One side note, unless I’m able to work some magic with the AJAX, this application is going to provide a decent load on our server. The initial launch will be restricted to just a few people. We’ll be providing a sign up form before we launch so you can get on the list.

Project Lite-App: View Visitor Data in Real-Time

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

We’re going to be working on a side project that takes the data collected by Marketing for Mavens and displays it in real-time in what we’re calling a lite-app. The application will be accessed from your browser but it will use a small width interface – about 200px – to display visitor data. We’re working on the best approach for developing this application now. It will rely on AJAX for data retrieval and display. There are a few tricky areas which we’re trying to solve – specifically, reordering visitors as data is retrieved and keeping the view fresh without over-burdening our test servers. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.
