Statcounter is Down

The homepage for statcounter seems to be loading just fine, but the login is not working. Perhaps this has to do with their new beta version of the site going live? In any case, it is annoying. Statcounter seems to have been down for about 3 hours now. Statcounter has now posted a message: The site is currently offline and will be back shortly. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. -The StatCounter Team.

Google Analytics Benchmarking Newsletter

Google Analytics Benchmarking Newsletter 2011, Volume 1, July 2011 1. Introduction Welcome to the first volume of the Analytics Benchmarking Newsletter! This month, we are replacing the standard “benchmarking” report in your Google Analytics account with data shared in this newsletter. We are using this newsletter as an experiment to surface more useful or interesting data to Analytics users. Data contained here comes from all websites which have opted-in anonymous data sharing with Google Analytics. Only those website administrators which have enabled this anonymous data sharing will receive this “benchmarking” newsletter. You may be wondering, how many websites are in this “anonymous data sharing” pool? Currently, hundreds of thousands, and we’ve endeavored to make all of the metrics here statistically significant. The date range of comparison for this newsletter is from November 1, 2010 – February 1, 2011. Comparison is done with data from November 1, 2009 – February 1, 2010. Absolute metrics such as total # visits, pageviews, or conversions for all opted-in websites are not reported. To simplify the prose, the phrase “websites” will represent “websites which have opted into anonymous data sharing with Google Analytics” for the rest of this newsletter. 2. Site Metrics Compared to a year ago, websites have seen reduced pages / visit, average time on site, as well as bounce rate. 11/1/09 – 2/1/10 11/1/10 – 2/1/11 Difference Pages/Visit 4.9 4.5 -0.4 Bounce Rate 48.2% 47.0% -1.2% Avg Time on Site 5:49 5:23 -0:26 2.1 Breakdown by Geography Our anonymous database has aggregated … Continue reading

Akismet, which my eyes want to read as Askimet, has just been installed on my blog. Hope this keeps spam away. Will be working to add Google Analytics next. I also really like statcounter.com’s UI, but they have some security issues (use of SSL for login, sensitive data, etc) and also I am finding that their javascript code is sort of obtrusive, and that it interferes with jQuery’s document.ready method, causing a delay after the page is actually loaded and before jQuery executes.
