Need to see who’s been on your website in the last day? Week? Month? Want to monitor your website’s traffic without having to read a manual first? Want an elegant web analytics solution that updates in minutes rather than hours and works beautifully on all devices? Maybe you should check out Trends.
Since we first launched LiveStats, our web app for monitoring your website’s traffic in real-time, we’ve been determined to figure out how to store historical data at a large scale. Due to the number of sites we serve, and the speed at which we store data for quick retrieval, it’s been a huge challenge but we’ve finally figured it out.
What is Trends?
Trends is a web app for monitoring your website’s historical traffic data. All the information you need is easily readable and quickly scannable with bold graphs and readable lists. There’s a separate Widget for every metric (like referrers, visitors or top content), making it easy for the whole team to know what’s been popular and what’s not on your website.
There’s not an ounce of Flash in Trends, or any of GoSquared. We’re really proud of the graphing engine behind Trends. Because we haven’t used Flash, graphs in Trends display just as well on your desktop as it does on your iPhone or iPad. These are the best charts in a web-based analytics service anywhere on the web.
The interface of Trends consists of a series of beautiful, easy-to-use Widgets. You can set up every Widget just as you want – choose the time frame for your stats, whether you want to look at a graph, pie chart, bar chart, or just the figures, and even move the Widgets around. Trends will change to suit you. The whole interface will stay the way you set it when you return – every Widget, every state, every time frame will be remembered so you can jump back in where you left off.
