I just started to use GoSquared this week – If you’ve got a high traffic website (well any website really) and want some real-time web analytics or insights – then you better get started with a FREE GoSquared account today. Using GoSquared I can watch as visitors come and go.
Free Web Analytics & insights
GoSquared monitors and analyses your website’s traffic in real-time – and you can watch all the action in the LiveStats console – which is like a 3 part Heads-Up Display. You just add another Tracking Code in your webpages.
Trends provides something similar to Google Analytics dashboard – while I prefer Google Analytics for the data-mining – Trends is a good snapshot of what’s popular.
The asynchronous tracking code does not impact your sites performance – but I haven’t tested this against any caching plugins.
A GoSquared free account allows you to monitor 1 website with 10,000 page views each month.
WordPress plugin of choice
Out of the box, I was prompted to install the WordPress plugin making this an all too easy choice. There are no widgets or dashboard.
The real-time analytics makes GoSquared a must-have plugin to recommend for any WordPress install.
