Well, some of you may have noticed that there is a text field on the front page over at Zimmersion which allows you to leave your email address so that the we can let you know when the the first version if released into the wild. Something else that that is not so obvious is that we have also started using the services of StatCounter, a service similar to Google Analytics that allows us to passively record information about visitor to our both ZiZee.com and Zimmersion. Some of the interesting things you can learn about your visitors are by using this great tool are:
- Number of new visitors
- Number of repeat visitors
- How long each user stayed at your site
- which browsers your users are using
- Which sites referred a visitor to your page
- Which countries/cities your visitors are coming from
This sort of information is really handy when trying to work out the where to concentrate effort in product development and marketing. For instance, if we find that out there is a lot of visitors from Brazil visiting Zimmersion, then we’ll prioritise our localisation efforts on providing Portuguese resources.
