Tons of great new widgets to put on your web site

We've been hard at work on some great new widgets for you to put on your web site, and we just released them now. For a demo of all of them, check out the new goodies page. These widgets are available to all users.

I've embedded three of them below. They're all highly customizable and designed to be placed on a public web site to showcase any of your stats as you see fit.

To configure any of these widgets for your web site, simply click the "get widgets" link at the top of your Clicky dashboard. There is also a new sub-tab in the site preferences for setting up widgets.

The first 10 people who put any of these on their public web site and post a link in the comments get a free 1 year Blogger account, or $20 via Paypal if you already have a paid premium account.

The most amazing feature EVER!

You are going to be blown away when you feast your eyes on this bad boy. That's right, Clicky now offers you the ability to delete a web site yourself. OMG!!!

Ok, really I'm just poking fun at myself for not having implemented this in the 21 months that Clicky has existed. There was a good reason for not allowing you to do this, but it's not really valid anymore. It got to the point where I was getting 5-10 requests per day to delete a site for someone that they're no longer tracking. It was starting to get ridiculous.

So now, I am happy to present to you, the ability to delete any of your web sites yourself. You can do this from your site preferences page. Mark your calendars. This day is historic. I look forward to my daily email load dropping by a good 10-20%.

Clicky now has email reports and they rock

Professional users can now get email reports for any and/or all data types on a daily, weekly, and/or monthly basis. They are sent in a split HTML/plain format so if you have a good email client they will be nicely stylized. They're completely customizable so you only get the data that you want to get. Each report can be sent to up to 10 unique email addresses.

To setup a report for any site, go to that site's preferences area. There's a new sub-tab called email reports, which is where the magic happens.

Here's a picture of the configuration screen. What you can't see at the bottom is the section that allows you to send the same report for any of your other registered sites (you pick which ones). This allows you to create and manage just one report and then assign it to any of your other sites with a single click.

And here's what the report looks like in Gmail:

Google Analytics probably has the best email reports of any service, because they are basically just screenshots of the actual service. That's really cool, and not something we're capable of doing at the moment. But Google aside, I think our email reports best any other service out there.

Let's take Statcounter for example. They are the #1 "indie" statistics service, in terms of number of sites tracked. Here's the configuration screen you get with Statcounter. The only data you can get is your visitors and page views count, and the only configurable option is whether you want it weekly or monthly (not both):

And here's what a Statcounter report looks like:

I think we've raised the bar.

Privacy updates

Our public demo of the Clicky product has always been of our own traffic data. Some people understandably have had a problem with this, because they don't want their usage of our web site to be publicly available. (Please note this was always in our terms and conditions page, we weren't hiding this fact from anyone). The problem we've had was that our own traffic made such a great demo, because we get a lot of visitors and all the features of the product are used on our site.

But we still agree this needed to change. As of today, all traffic data to is no longer publicly available, including via the API (we changed the sitekey). The public demo is now of our blog traffic, which is pretty small but we don't run any other sites that get a lot of traffic.

There's also the fact that a few of our major competitors just can't seem to stop looking at our web site and its traffic data (yes, we know who you are; Clicky is watching you).

An extra note to people using our API for their own product, many of you have been using our demo site ID/key as the default values, which we agree is a great idea so your widget works even before the user has configured it. Please update your code to use the new demo site ID and key (32020 and 2e05fe2778b6, respectively). If we change the demo in the future, we will always keep our blog traffic publicly available, so this type of change shouldn't be needed ever again.
