Google Dashboard

I’ve been playing with Google Dashboard for awhile now — its a pretty cool source of blog site data.

Its a nice collection of statistics — Pageviews, Traffic Sources Overview, Map Overlay — all well displayed and organized.

Gee, these Google guys are going places . . .

    Reading the Big Picture from Moscow, Russia this week. Does that show up in the Google tracking?

    Attempting but failing to post from Moscow, Russia to see if the Google tracking shows it.

    22% of your traffic was from the keyword youporn! Nothing for Luskin or Kudlow. Interesting.

    Correction: I meant to say keyword traffic not just traffic.

    ~~~
    BR: Yeah, the breakdown of traffic (as of this AM) is as follows:

    Direct 183,833 (38.93%)
    Search Engines 144,689 (30.64%)
    Referring Sites 143,654 (30.42%)
    Other 32 (0.01%)

    So 22% of the ~31% of search engine traffic — about 6.8% — is You Porn . . .

    The Final Days of Google: It is going to be an inside job.

    Cringely, the same moron that said IBM is firing 150,000 of their 130,000 US employees by the end of this years also says Google is toast.

    He must be right becuase he is right 53.3% of the time. And if you don’t believe that, check some of the IBM boards. Those poor people have such low morale they believe this stuff.

    Anyhow, for what it is not worth:

    just installed this at work and have been playing around w/ it. pretty damn close to webtrends at zero the cost and none of the hassle of dealing with the sysadmin. i’m having some trouble w/ the filters and can’t get it to ignore an ip range. otherwise, outstanding. now if only the “decision makers” would pay attention to what it’s telling us…
