Quantcast: You Don’t Know What You’ve Got Til It’s Gone

stats1I began using Sitemeter on my Blogger blog before WordPress.com introduced an in house stats program. I began using it here in 2006, still use it on both WordPress.com blogs, and won’t be letting it go any time soon because as Joni Mitchell sang:  you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone.

Activemeter Shutting Down

activemeter imageIf you have been using a free activemeter for visitor tracking on your wordpress.com blog please note this announcement and make arrangements accordingly, prior to February 28, 2011.

Greetings!
This is a reminder to let you know of ActiveMeter shutdown. Please read this email and take appropriate actions if you haven’t already done so.

While we appreciate the support and interest from you for over past 6 years of ActiveMeter, the service will be shutting down as of February 28, 2011. The decision to shutdown ActiveMeter is not an easy one and it is due to the high cost of keeping it running 24/7.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU REMOVE THE CODE FROM YOUR WEBSITE BEFORE THEN, SO THAT YOUR WEBSITE WILL NOT TRY TO ACCESS ACTIVEMETER. TRYING TO ACCESS IT WHEN IT IS SHUTDOWN WILL CAUSE YOUR WEBSITE TO SLOW AND PERHAPS NOT DISPLAY. WE CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE PROBLEMS.

Any recurring billing will be stopped after Feb 28, 2011 and any pre-payments will be refunded after the shutdown and will be prorated accordingly.
If interested, please try ActiveProspects our free tool offering to capture and generate sales leads, or sign-up for a 30 day free trial of ActiveConversion our more advanced sales intelligence tool.

Thank you again for your past support!
Yours truly,
ActiveMeter Team

Mastering Blog Metrics, Content Creation and Retaining Readers

bicycleBy Guest Author, Jean Chong

I’m just like many other blog readers:  I’m fickle –I read other people’s blogs whenever the fancy strikes me.  Now that I have less personal time, I’m even more picky in choosing blog posts that I click open to read. I’m even more mindful on the subjects that I want to write for blog posts. However,  I want to ensure that I am still able to captivate a few passing readers to pause, read my pithy words and browse my photos. Continue reading

Two free unique visitor counters for wordpress.com blogs

pax counterBloggers will all agree that having a clear understanding of where your visitors are coming from, how many there are, and whether or not the number of new visitors (unique visitors) to their blogs is growing is important. I have been reviewing non-javascript free third party visitor tracking widgets that can be used on wordpress.com blogs. Some are real time stats counters like getclicky and some are not.  Thus far I have found only two  counters that can be used to track the number of unique visitors hitting on a page.
