More Vistor Tracking Services - BlogFlux

After I posted yesterday's summary about some of the visitor tracking services available, Ahmed from BlogFlux left me a comment about their Google Map hack visitor tracking service, MapStats. They do the same as gVisit but also offer information about where a visitor came from before visiting one of your web/blog pages. What's more, they also offer several breakdowns of visit statistics. And they're free as well.

I've already signed up and the first few visitors appear almost instanteously. There is some text on the tracking page that it can take up to 24 hrs to view information. On the two blogs I've been tracking, I have limited stats so far, so I'll see where we're at tomorrow. The kookiest thing I noticed on their demo pages was some statement saying that their domain name has been registered since 1969. Now unless they were part of the US Military networks, that's certainly not possible :) [Military "internets" have been around since the early or mid-1960s.]

BlogFlux also has a "human-edited" directory of blogs, a pinging service, and more. Check them out. I'll post a bit more indepth about their services after a week or two. So far, I like what I see. I'm almost tempted not to write my own tracking package, but I have (custom) needs :)

Thanks for the plug - I am confused, where do you see 1969? Im sure its 1999 :)


I am confused too, but that's nothing new :) I can't find it, nor 1999.
