Thanks for that tip John, I installed this and I love feedjit-
But I have already had one member complain that because it gives out the city and state it invades privacy!!
OMG! They will complain about anything!
I've used Google Analytics since August of 2009 and my site is public, but only the main page is visible. Analytics monitors pageviews (of the main page) and keeps track of referring sites, keywords used, It keeps track of where my visitors come from, countries, etc. I like it and continue to use it. I realize of course I'd have more useful and accurate info if my site was totally Public, but that is not what my members want.
This question is only tangentially related: those of you who have Google Analytics set up on your ning sites, do you find that it does slow down response time when you try to move around?
no I do not. Site runs as well with it or without it, from what I've seen.
question when watching the real time anylitics some are highlighted in greed or red mommentarily but no explanation what the red and green highlights mean
have u figured this out?
I've just set up Google Analytics on my network a few hours ago. I've been meaning to do that for the last 6 months, but have avoided it because I expected a huge hurdle. I'm not a programmer. I don't know what all the words mean. But it actually wasn't that bad. It really does work! I even was able to set up a 2nd profile with a filter that excludes visits from my own IP address. That just subtracts all my activity from the total and gives me a more realistic picture of what everybody else is doing. It shows me what the referring sites were, and even what pages the person looked at who came from that other site. Really cool stuff.
I've had google analytics set up for both my sites since mid December. The one thing it can't give me is a way to distinguish member visits from non-member visits. The NEW/RETURNING visitor thing doesn't help because I may have members who only visit once every month or 2. And non-members may visit repeatedly without joining. I know how to get statistics by removing myself -- just plug in my 4 code numbers. But I can't do that for hundreds of members. Is there some code that ning attaches to network members that I can use as an exclusion or inclusion for google analytics?
