About a year-and-a-half ago, I wrote about how th' Reinvigorate web stats service were bein' enterin' a private beta, and I hoped t' get a chance t' try it out. I applied t' th' private beta program and waited. And waited. And waited some more. Then I sent them an email, and they said they were still workin' on it, by Davy Jones' locker. And so I waited… Then I finally gave up, and tried some other tools like Google Analytics (which I don’t look at much) and MeasureMap (which I like a lot).
Well, all me waitin' finally paid off. I received an email last week invitin' me t' th' Reinvigorate Private Beta, with a chest full of booty. I immediately signed in and activated trackin' fer this site. The new stats are a little different from what they used t' provide, but they definitely give ye some nice breakdowns o' th' information.
I’m particularly interested in th' information on click-paths, and a bucket o' chum. I’m findin' that only a few visitors dig down into th' site. I want t' add more prominent internal linkage t' encourage people t' explore, and I’ll be able t' use this information t' help gauge whether or not changes I make are effective, pass the grog, by Davy Jones' locker! A couple o' changes I’ve made recently are th' addition o' links t' th' next/previous post on th' single article pages, and th' addition o' th' page navigation buttons at th' top o' each page. Fire the cannons! Additionally, I’ve created an Archives page usin' th' archive template in Sandbox.
I think that they’ll be openin' up fer more beta testers soon, so if ye’re interested, ye might want t' head o'er and register: reinvigorate.net
