Sorry about tonight

We had to disable public access to the web site for a few hours while we made some strenuous changes to the database that wouldn't have cooperated well with people using the site at the same time. But don't worry, we didn't miss a second of tracking your data! The whole process took a lot longer than expected because of a few bugs that popped up, but they are now fixed. One of these bugs caused some of your pageviews from the last few hours to be linked to the wrong page id, which you may notice in your click log if you see any paths or page titles that don't belong to you. Whoops :)

Public statistics

Today we introduced one of our most requested features: Publicly available statistics. This means that your statistics are open for the world to see - supposing you want them to be. This feature is of course off by default. But we know that a lot of people have wanted this feature for advertising purposes and/or bragging rights, so, we have delivered!

To turn it on, click the 'edit' link next to the web site in question on your user homepage and check the appropriate box. But wait - people still need a link to get to your stats. Click the 'link code' option next to your web site (from your user homepage again), and put the code anywhere on your site. That code includes your referal id, which will let you earn money once we have our affiliate system setup (coming soon, I promise!). You don't have to include the image with the link but it is the trendy thing to do.

Now, when someone clicks this link from your web page, they will be taken directly to your statistics. If your stats are NOT public, no problem. You can still use the same link to refer people to Clicky, they will just arrive at the front page of getclicky.com instead. Keep in mind, when YOU click this link, you will just be taken to your user homepage, which is one click away from your stats. We like to start people off there because it's a better place to display news and helps you see when there are important updates.

Blog is back online

Our host's technical guru is out of the country for an unforeseen amount of time and apparently he is the only one who can fix our DNS problems. So after two weeks we finally decided it was time to just create a /blog directory and call it good. So welcome back! That was pretty frustrating, especially with the huge spike of traffic we got because of Steve Rubel's post about our product. Thanks Steve! :)

The RSS feeds have been a huge hit, and we feel great about being the first web analyzer to provide such a feature. They will improve over time, as they are a bit barebones at the moment, so sit tight.

Launch is approaching really soon and we can't wait!

UPDATE: Whoops, comments were broken. Our anti-spam measures were marking everything as false positive because the host is no longer blog.getclicky.com. Fixed! Sorry.

Private beta

Today we switched Clicky to a private beta, as we are outgrowing our existing resources. This means we aren't accepting new registrations at this time, although there is a form to enter in your email address and we'll notify you when we're ready. We are in the process of getting a dedicated server or 3 and hope to have that ready by the first week of January. Once we have switched to our own servers, we will be officially launching as well. Stay tuned!

5 million clicks and counting

We are just minutes away from crossing the 5 million click mark, and that's from just 15 days of traffic collection. WOW! Thanks to everyone for using and enjoying Clicky. People seem to be loving the service and that makes us feel awesome!

I thought some general stats might be fun. There are about 800 sites using Clicky right now, in pretty much every country and demographic you can imagine. While a lot of them are blogs, we also have a lot that aren't: forums, online stores, schools, graphic artists, general information, advertising, and yes, even a few porn sites. Overall a decent representation of the internet as a whole. Although don't take this to mean anything, it's far from scientific, but it's still fun :)
