Jim MacIntyre of WSS and my blog/
October 30, 2006
“What do you think about Jim MacIntyre becoming CEO of WebSideStory?” the investment banker asked me this morning.
That was twelve hours ago and I had no data so could only speculate. But now I have real data:
My most popular post today was this one, Absolutely Blown Away by Visual Sciences. It had more than 65% as many views as all the views for that post combined for the last business week:
Furthermore, from Thursday October 19 through yesterday, only 7.3% of the people who read that post lived in Utah (or more correctly, had computers that live in Utah.) But today, 80% of computers looking at my Visual Science post live in Utah.
I am happy to do the reporting here, but I don’t want to do the analysis. This is partially because I don’t want to get involved in a competition that has nothing to do with me, and partially because I would need more data anyway. (I know, it is very unusual for me to mind my own business. But it happens sometimes.)
Instead, I will close with a comment about Google Analytics. GA – I see your geographic drilldowns all the time, I “demo’ed” them at the Summit — but this was the first time that I have ever used them for something truly meaningful. Thanks for having them when I needed them.
