Google Analytics On Your Iphone
Do you have an obsession over analyzing your web traffic? If you're a modest webmaster like me then you have definitely been there. The hour is late, the day has been long. And you are dying to know how well your latest PPC or SEO campaign is turning results on your target website through google analytics.
So you watch your analytics page come the midnight hour….
And you wait, and you wait…and you wait. Just dying for a glimpse at that sweet web traffic counter. Begging for your bounce rate, salivating for just a glimpse of conversion.
Organic web traffic be thy name…
…and You wait.
I’ve found myself in this predicament more times than I care to mention, the google analytics data shortcoming as far as updating the page data (especially on Friday I’ve noticed…I guess google takes it just as easy on the weekend as the rest of the modern world) can be as infuriating to SEO’s and webmasters as any of the other lagging mechanisms of web design/content management (I’m looking at you wordpress and youtube)
Thankfully, for those most impatient souls that find themselves relying financially and professionally on this data (silly us), I believe that there may be an interesting cushion to break the “analytics cliffhanger” fall.
Iphone App to the rescue.
Quiklyticsby Escoz is an analytics Iphone app that is specifically designed for us impetuous SEO’s and web developers who have no time or tolerance to sit around and wait until google get’s around to our data. I’ve found that this little gem of the iphone app world is a godsend.
The interface is user friendly and it works directly through your google analytics user id, so any website that you already have in your google account will automatically be made available on your Quiklyitcs screen. You can check daily traffic and bounce rate and compare it to the day before, it's also gives you an overview of monthly visitors depending on your website marketing campaign and a more detailed screen is available for checking traffic sources and even keywords that people are arriving through.
It's as close to realtime data as you can get for the iphone. And for that reason it is well worth the modest price of 1.99 from the iphone app store. But don't take my word for it. Go ahead and check it out for yourself by Searching for Quiklyitcs in the iphone apps store. You won't be disappointed.
