When you can’t wait hours to find out what’s going on with your website analytics and traffic stats, you need Gaug.es to handle the job. The real-time traffic tool gives web publishers a quick and easy way to collect and analyze the data that’s coming in from all their websites on one central page.
Whether you manage one site that gets 100,000 views per month or 100 websites that average 1 million views per month, there’s a Gaug.es pricing plan that fits your needs. Just enter your email address and select a password to start tracking your sites. Choose a title and select a time zone for your new “Gauge,” and you’ll be given a few lines of script to paste into each page you want to track. When you’ve linked up all the pages on all the sites you want to track, you can head back to the Gaug.es dashboard page to see an overview of everything that’s going on. See how many views you’ve gotten over the course of the past day or the past two weeks, and see which times of the day people are most likely to check out your sites. Gaug.es will also show you which articles or post are drawing the most readers, as well as which referring sites are bringing people your way. Gaug.es lets you get as deep into your analytics and statistics as you want.
When Gaug.es says that its data shows up in real-time, it means it. Page views show up almost immediately after a visitor has clicked onto your site, making is possible for publishers to quickly adjust story positions on their main pages to accommodate hot topics and breaking news. The application’s AirTraffic Live tool is interesting, as well, in that publishers can watch as new placemarkers pop up on a world map in real-time as visitors continually click onto their sites.
