I've been using google analytics for my site and it serves its purpose.

Today I stumbled upon hittail and it looks interesting, and the price is right (free).

http://www.hittail.com/demo/

I don't advertise on my site (and I never will) but I'm interested in building traffic (which is almost 100% google direct traffic right now).

Has anyone used this before?

Just sounds lame to me, no matter how you slice it.

Hi, this is the creator of HitTail. I'll be happy to provide a site where there are hundreds of happy, unsolicited user testimonials and quotes.

We're serving search hit and referrer data in real-time, giving everyone what they basically want--the ability to watch their log files as the hits come in. We then extract the keywords and determine which terms are are under-performing, and issue them as writing topic suggestions. When acted upon, they're repeatedly proven to systematically and incrementally boost your natural search traffic.

The basic service is free.

I'd be happy to answer any follow-up questions here or on our site.

Nice to see you stop by.
I just wonder if people really need an external service/company for that. It's not like it's difficult to parse referer URLs and the keywords coming from X search engines.

Well, I guess the very existence of your company proves there is a market for that.

Poi - not everyone has your talents.

Even in my small site, sifting thru one of the many server logs can be pretty daunting. To actually write a program that will not only parse but also intelligently summarize and bring structure to what is essentially thousands of lines of crap would be quite a challenge. Sure this is still simpler than programming the Visitor Map that Google Analytics offers.


Mike: yep, that was pretty unexpected to see the creator of the service drop by. thanks.
I haven't tried the service yet though - the plug-in for WP did not work (conflict with other javascript?) so I'll have to insert the code by hand in the footer.

reisio: you always have something nice and useful to say.
