What is LiveStats?
LiveStats is a web app that lets you see who’s browsing your Site right now. Without any plugins (like Flash or Silverlight) or any applications to download, LiveStats updates in real-time showing you who’s browsing and which pages are being looked at.
It doesn’t do graphs. It doesn’t do trends. It doesn’t do segmentation. It doesn’t do event tracking. It tells you everything you need to know about who’s on your Site – right now.
Why do I need LiveStats?
We’re guessing you already use an analytics solution of some sort – many use Google’s Analytics, or Mint by Shaun Inman. These are great for seeing how your traffic has been doing over a period of time in the past. LiveStats isn’t meant to replace these tools, but work alongside them.
We found ourselves asking “Who’s on our site right now?”
It turns out there aren’t many tools that give you simple, useful information like the number of people viewing your site, and what pages they’re browsing. LiveStats makes it really easy to get this information quickly – the number of people on your site right now is clearly displayed in the toolbar, and every visitor is represented by a row in the list below.
You can instantly scan the LiveStats interface and see which visitors have been browsing extensively and which have come and gone quickly. Click on a visitor’s row to dive deeper into their browsing experience and see more information about them such as what browser they’re running, which operating system they use, their screen size, the language they speak, and which country they’re from.
You haven’t seen LiveStats until you’ve tried it out on your own Site.
For those of you who have been with GoSquared for a while, you’ll also notice a completely rewritten interface. We started from the ground up to build a strong foundation for a new suite of web applications that will help you run a better website, and build a stronger business.

P.S. We haven’t completely forgotten about advertising – we can’t wait to tell you what we have planned for November.
