How to track individual users with out using Google Analytics

7. April 2013 15:24 by Dave in   //  Tags:   //   Comments (0)

Google Analytics is great for a lot of things, and with a price tag of free its clear to see why millions of website owners choose to use it as their website analytics platform of choice. However there are some self-imposed restrictions that Google have in place, and the one I can't see being changed any time soon is seeing what an individual visitor has done on the site (without breaking the rules that is).

In the next week I hope to release on codeplex a patch for Cookie Free Analytics to fix a couple of minor issues that I discovered today, but until then read on for the DIY patch notes....

These may only be a problem if you are trying to track file downloads (like large PDF files) or passing UTM tracking parameters, or both at the same time (as I was trying to do today).


fetchfollow - Website visitor click path tracking

I would like to introduce my newest project which has just been soft launched on Windows Azure Websites.

From the home page: "The fetchfollow toolkit is being developed with the aim of providing affordable online marketing tools & services. Designed to complement your existing website lead generation, our tools are suitable for corporate marketing teams, freelance website marketers, SEO agencies & inquisitive webmasters."

The project was started to help marketing teams with lead generation. There are plenty of tools which try to take a guess at who has been on your website so you can cold call them, however I felt like taking a different route.
