A little while back I was looking for something that would enhance my analytics and give me more features than Google analytics gives me and I found a great site called Clicky.
Don’t get me wrong Google analytics is fantastic but one thing that it is really missing is comparisons for pages from day to day and real time tracking.
I tried Woopra, which was pretty good and then settled on Clicky, which at 9.99 a month is pretty cheap.
Right now using Google analytics I track pages views over time and watch trends, and thanks to the built in Adsense integration I can track what pages are performing best on my blogs.
What makes Clicky Great?
The feature as I said before that really excited me about Clicky was the Real Time website tracking. One of my sites gets 6,000 to 8,000 visitors a a day and using real time tracking I can see exactly which pages get traffic at any time and who is on your site from where. This is a really great feature to me.
Comparison Stats with Clicky
Other features that I am really enjoying with Clicky are the traffic comparisons today vs yesterday or 7 days ago by the hour as well as the increase or decrease of a pages traffic compared to the day before. I really get a good feel for site performance and hot or cold pages with these features.
I bet you are looking at this and thinking, “Geez, big deal just a couple features Google analytics does not have” Well you can try it out for a month and see. I of course still use Google analytics and for a small traffic site this may not be to exciting but once you get some traffic there are lots of ways to slice and dice where and how the traffic is coming. Try Clicky out for free here and see what you think.
