BlogBeat: The Better Blog Analytics Tool?


For bloggers interested in keep tabs who reads their blogs and finding those posts which are especially popular, Steve Rubel alerts us to blogbeat, a great alternative to the ad-supported SiteMeters most of us currently use. The service, which focuses specifically on blogs, offers a simple way to get your hands on data such as your most popular posts, links/refers, RSS clicks and more. It’s free and ad-free. Sitemeter’s what I use too and they want you to pay for deeper analysis (bummer!), so I’ll be trying out BlogBeat for sure. Is it really better? We’ll see…

UPDATE: Blogbeats seems to have limited the number of new users to its service. It’s currently counting down from 190 registrations and it’s fast dropping. Strange that they put this countdown only on the registrations page when they should put it on the front page. They would have gotten more people registered rather than then giving them the illusion that they could hold it off for later. Bad bad marketing.

  1. I was watching the program “Roast” on Comedy Central one day. It was a pretty cool show where celebrities diss the Roast guest Celebrity with pretty lame (prepared) one or two liners.

    But you know what really grind my gears about the program? It’s the censorship on the program… It sounded like everyone word is censored with a “Beep.”

    How on *%$# earth #^@% you #(*@^ catch the %&^@ jokes if #@&^$# every @(#& word is *@^$*?!!!!!

  2. To clarify: Rose Alone’s my mysterious celebrity blogger. And no, his post isn’t spam. You’ll get it if you follow along closely. 🙂

  3. As an example of how advanced spam has become… Incorporated Subversion received this comment on their blog today:

    “I think the concept of utilizing blogs as a educational resource online is a fabulous idea. In fact, if I’m not mistaken, I read a piece on ASU as they are taking it a step and setting aside a full set of courses on how to make the most of your educational experience via utilization of blogging and the like. It just goes to show how powerful the net and being online has truly become.
    great writing,
    take care,
    B.”

  4. Sometimes democracy sucks. Like the sucker with a lolipop.

    Ever wondered why the pineapple is called pineapple even though it is neither pine nor apple?
