I was wondering about adding a tracking widget. I did see one on a blog that named the city the person was from. I saw the blog had a list of the visitors city’s and state.
I have searched on Goggle today but no help. I would go back to the other blog but Old Timers Disease is kicking in.
Do you know about the ability for you to see the data on your blog viewers in Blogger Stats? There is a video on that: Reader Statistics. But I think you mean a gadget that displays on your blog’s sidebar and shows a map with pushpins for each person who reads your blog … is that right?
I have seen that too, but never used it. I just found this one called Revolver Maps and tried it on a new page in my blog.
Check it out at http://geeksontour.blogspot.co…..r-map.html. Realize I’ll probably delete it soon.
Here’s another free tracking map that looked good, but I clicked the button to get it and nothing happened: Free Visitor Map
I looked at the blogs I knew who used to used a gadget like that, but they are also non-functioning now.
Well I’m Back
I have come up with this tracking site for looking at who’z on my blog if any one. I tried to install but I got a warning from BlogSpot.
here’z the warning or the site. I guess they blogger and my server said it was unsafe. I have seen this on other blogs, but don’t want to put any tags or cookies on any visitors.
Here is my blog thanks to the Geeks yogi154.blogspot.com
Alternate instructions to install on Blogger:
On the Feedjit site, return to the Live Traffic Feed signup page. Below the color customizations is a drop down box, please select “Other blog or Website” and click the Go! button to get the Live Traffic Feed code. Copy this code into the Blogger gadget you created and save your changes.
I guess I forgot the site, Hey what do you want from a Rookie !!
Personally, I would just make do with the Stats that come with Blogger. If you really want the info that Feedjit gives you – it’s probably ok, since it’s on CNET. Worse case is you may get some annoying toolbar along with it.
Go ahead and follow the HTML Widget instructions. If it doesn’t work right, you can just remove the widget.
