Introducing LiveStats 2


Introducing GoSquared LiveStats 2 - real-time web traffic monitoring

LiveStats 2 is here.

We’re thrilled today to announce the all new LiveStats 2 – real-time analytics completely rebuilt from the ground up for faster performance, more accurate results, and a more powerful interface.

Here’s the press release we sent out this morning:

LiveStats 2 pushes the innovations made in the first version to the next level. This update introduces second-by-second live monitoring of all visitors so there’s no guess work left in discovering whether people are on your Site, actively reading your content, or just have it open in the background.

By monitoring your Site’s traffic in absolute real-time, LiveStats can detect whether a visitor is actively focused on any page on your Site, and whether they have more than one page of your Site open at the same time in separate tabs and windows. You can even see which of the pages the visitor is looking at, gaining an insight into their habits by watching as they jump from page to page in real-time. No other analytics package, real-time or otherwise, offers the ability to view a user as they travel through your Site like this. The experience puts you in the observation tower, while enabling you to observe details that would otherwise only have been achievable by looking over a visitor’s shoulder.

Understanding where your visitors are coming from is easier than ever with the new Map View. As soon as a visitor loads a page on your Site, LiveStats will pinpoint their location to city level accuracy on a beautiful full screen map. We’ve even built in a dynamic daylight line so you can see how your visitors browse your Site at different times of the day in different regions.

The interface of LiveStats is built entirely in open web technologies. We’ve embraced jQuery and Raphaël javascript libraries to build a user experience that many have assumed was Flash based. The simplicity and ease of use of the LiveStats interface completely belies the power and information that can be gained from it.

We believe LiveStats is the best way to find out what’s happening and who’s on your Site right now.

LiveStats is available to everyone and does not require a download. You can sign up for a basic plan to try out the service for free. Premium plans that offer some of the great features of LiveStats 2 such as Map View and Event Tracking start at just $5.99 per month. The ideal plan for most small to medium sized website owners is available for $9.99 per month while there is a professional plan for larger websites and corporate clients for $49.99. These are aggressively priced plans for a service that outclasses our rivals in the real-time analytics market.

As a note to you, our wonderful existing members who have enjoyed LiveStats for free up until now – we will not automatically start charging you. All existing Accounts will remain free for the next 30 days on an unlimited plan, but at the end of these 30 days, if you haven’t upgraded to a paid plan, all Sites in your Account will automatically be downgraded to the free LiveStats plan that tracks 5,000 pageviews per month. You can upgrade or downgrade at any time and there are no nasty contracts.

We’ll write again this week to explain in more detail how LiveStats 2 is a giant leap forward from version 1. We’re really proud of how far we’ve come, and we believe that this latest release pushes us even further ahead in the real-time web analytics industry.
