If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: Portland has a whole ton of Web analytics talent here in town. Both on the consulting side of the desk and the development side.
One of those talented companies is Clicky, a cost effective real time Web analytics service that I happen to use right here on Silicon Florist. What’s more, they have an incredibly passionate user base. How do I know? Clicky just changed their interface. Read More
When it comes to Twitter, people get a little excited around these parts. In fact, we like to think of Portland as one of the most Twittery towns around. So when TweetMeme released a new “follow me” button that provides some interesting details about you and your Twitter account, it was no surprise that Portlanders—not to mention other folks around the Web—were quick to start banging on it.
What might surprise you, however, is that one local Twitter-focused company is baked right into the goodness that is the new TweetMeme Follow button—and that company is Portland-based Twitalyzer. Read More
[HTML2]Fresh off the news of the Widemile acquisition, Portland-based Webtrends rolled out the latest version of their Web analytics software, Webtrends Analytics 9.
Now in a day and age when folks can get Web analytics for free—or at a very low cost—you might think that an upgrade to the Webtrends offering might fall a little flat.
Well, think again, my friend. The feedback on Webtrends 9 has been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks to their opening up the platform to other data streams—and in so doing, helping folks do a better job of understanding what’s happening on their sites. Read More
[HTML3]Like many bloggers, I’m wee bit addicted to tracking and stats and whatnot. Who’s reading what? When are they reading it? What’s popular? What’s not? Does anyone really care?
I want to know. And that’s why, real-time Web-traffic analysis like Portland-based Clicky‘s Spy feature are especially addicting for me, as well.
So imagine my surprise when the interface suddenly changed on me today—for the better. Read More
[HTML2]Long absent from the burgeoning Portland Web scene, our friends over at Webtrends have come back with a vengeance. They were quintessential to the success of Open Source Bridge, from sponsoring the event to hosting volunteer meetings to co-hosting Portland Lunch 2.0 to providing an adult beverage friendly venue for the after party. They’ve become a gracious host for events like CloudCamp PDX and WordCamp Portland. And, of course, they hired Justin Kistner, founder of Beer and Blog.
Given all they do, it’s really nice to get to share some of their good news here. And now, I’ll do that. Since they just signed a deal that has them working with Radian6 and Salesforce to incorporate Webtrends analytics for social media monitoring. Read More
If there’s one thing we here in Portland love, it’s our Twitter. And it’s not just because the inimitable Rael Dornfest, Twitter’s user experience (UX) engineer, happens to live in Portland.
No, it’s something deeper than that. Twitter works for Portland’s dynamic. It meshes with our culture and our geekiness and our whatever.
And so it should come as absolutely no surprise that, when it comes to understanding Twitter, Silicon Forest startups come up with some interesting solutions. Like Portland-based Twitalyzer. And like the latest feature from Clicky, the lightweight yet extremely feature-heavy Web analytics tool. The new feature with which I’m so impressed? It’s called Twitter brand monitor. (Calm down, Dawn.) Read More
