Visitor clouds and web analytics (and Wednesdays)


Here is the visitor cloud from my blog:

So I will ask the readers in Edinburgh and Zurich and Haifa and everywhere else but W. PA to forgive me for making a local post: Since a number of people are from the Burgh, including yours truly, I am taking this opportunity to tell everyone that we’ll be doing our first Pittsburgh Web Analytics Wednesday on Wednesday, April 4, 6-8 pm. Location TBD soon. I am leaning toward the S. Side or Oakland, suggestions are welcome. Post here or send me email, steif at lunametrics dot com.


ps I know you are dying to know, did I exclude myself from the data? Eventually I did set a cookie to do just that, but I definitely skew the results. So maybe I will be talking to myself…

Our founder, Robbin Steif, started LunaMetrics in 2004. She is a graduate of Harvard College and the Harvard Business School, and has served on the Board of Directors for the Digital Analytics Association. Robbin is a winner of a BusinessWomen First award, as well as a Diamond Award for business leadership. In 2017, Robbin sold her company to HS2 Solutions and has since retired from LunaMetrics.

    dumb question – what tool did you use to create your Visitor cloud? Seems that you use Statcounter (as do I) for measuring your blog traffic and it would be cool to make one of those for my very own.


  • Yes, you are right about StatCounter, but I also use Blogbeat. It costs $2/month. (Like ZoomClouds for analytics, no?) They have a 30-day free trial.
