Google Analytics introduces Real time traffic data

Google introduces real time traffic reports in Google Analytics

Google on Thursday introduced a new feature called Real Time Traffic Data on its popular service, Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a tool for collecting statistical data regarding the visitors on your blog. This new feature in Google Analytics is aimed at measuring real time traffic data on your site.

Google Analytics - The perfect tool for analyzing blog traffic

Here is an excerpt from the official blog post,

Today we’re very excited to bring real time data to Google Analytics with the launch of Google Analytics Real-Time: a set of new reports that show what’s happening on your site as it happens.

As we know real time data is very important to us to see how our site is performing on the internet. To observe how many hits our site is getting in the real world, calculate how much time each visitor spends and what is the bounce rate of our blog. When we have these data at our hand, only then we can proceed to analyze how to improve these numbers.

Understanding your audience mindset is very important. To do that you should launch social media campaigns to promote your blog, and share your blog posts on the social networks immediately after you publish an article. This is when the real time

data comes at hand. It becomes very easy to study how your post is performing after tweeting it and sharing it on the social platform.

John Jersin, the Product Manager at Google Analytics tells us the same,

“One way that I like to use these reports is to measure the immediate impact of social media. Whenever we put out a new blog post, we also send out a tweet. With Real-Time, I can see the immediate impact to my site traffic.”

So what are you waiting for, go to your Google Analytics page and start tracking your blog traffic in real time.

NOTE: Real time reports are only available for administrators who are using the new version of Google Analytics!

Drop a comment to let us know if you love the new real time data feature! Are you seeing the figures you expected for?



Facebook new features 2011

Facebook 3 New Changes 2011: Better Privacy, Unwanted tagging, Past Post Visibility


Facebook has recently rolled out new changes to its interface in 2011. These 3 new changes consists of Better Privacy control when sharing posts, Remove unwanted tags of you, Change the visibility of your post after it has been published.

These changes hit to me just today, perhaps Facebook is going alphabetically in releasing its new changes. So lets get down and review these changes one by one. In addition you can also add location to your posts and tag people who you were with then.

FIRST CHANGE: Post status updates to a specific group of people.

While posting a status on Facebook, you now have the option to choose whom you want it to see. Just press the small gears icon in the lower right corner of the status box. While posting an update, choose from Public (Everybody), Friends (Your Friends only), Custom (Specific People only). Now your status message is seen only by the people who are eligible to see it.

No need to worry if you did a mistake in selecting the visible persons. You can change it even after you have published a post. Just select the gears icon and change it back again.

SECOND CHANGE: Get rid of unwanted Photo tags.

This is the feature lot of people were concerned about on Facebook. So how to get rid of them, here’s what you have to do.

Go to Privacy Settings and then click on Custom box.

Next click on Profile Review and turn it on.

That’s it. Now whenever any of your Friends tags you in a Photo, you have got to approve them before they start displaying on your profile. As soon as a Friend tags you will receive a notification. After you click it you will be taken to the Wall tab where a sub-tab called Pending Posts will appear which will help you Approve or Disapprove the Photo tags. Easy isn’t it?

THIRD CHANGE: Change the visibility of your older posts.

Many a times we think whether to make this status Public or Private and later go with Public anyway. Facebook has now released a nice feature wherein you can change all of your older posts visibility to only your Friends. Don’t worry you wont need to sit the whole night and change the visibility for every specific post.

Facebook new feature 2011 manage post post visibility

 Just flyover to the Privacy Settings and click Manage Past Post Visibility where it says Limit the Audience for Past Posts. Then click on Confirm. That’s it, you are done.

NOTE: This feature cannot be undone. After you have clicked on Confirm there is no way back!

Twitter recently announced that they are rolling out the Much Expected Geo Location “Places” feature with Foursquare integration.
For Those who don’t know Foursquare, it is a location based game where users earn ‘badges’ (like mayor of the place) by Geo Tagging (checking in).

May be Twitter is very much fascinated by Foursquare and they have found the Importance of Geo Tagging..

Mashable Writes…

This feature will highlight tweets around a given location. Starting now, Twitter.com desktop and mobile users can tag their tweets with existing Twitter Places and add new Twitter Places, too.

Twitter Places can be explored and will reveal a list of recent, public tweets from that location. Twitter will also show you nearby locations and points of interest, including restaurants and shops.
