I’m not writing this post because Clicky Web Analytics is providing monetary incentive–because to be honest it’s really not much. I’m writing this because i actually love them. Clicky is the first web analytics service in the world to offer live, real time goal tracking for your web site. I found out about clicky through a post Jamaipanese did on his blog on July 3, 2008. I wasn’t sold on them at the time and commented on his post saying “What’s wrong with Google Analytics? That works fine”, oh how naïve i was.
I was using Google Analytics at the time, and i more or less stuck with them because, well it’s Google and also because it was free ( And still is). Problem was, Google Analytics is so tedious to use i barely understood what was going on so i more or less developed some level of apathy for website analytics. But on Sun Feb 14 2010 i signed up for Clicky; i subsequently started to abandon GA and started using Clicky more frequently. Only recently i decided to sign up for a pro account and i have not looked back since.
My favorite Clicky feature is probably something called “Spy”– Spy is a live view of visitors interacting with your web site.
If you’re a website or blog owner you will definitely not regret using Clicky. I’ve grown to love web statistics and it has caused me to take my blog a bit more seriously. Don’t lose out like i did for so long, try it before you knock it!
