Reinvigorate- Stat Tracking Goodness

reinvigorate stat trackingI recently was accepted to Reinvigorate, a new stat tracking program. And I’ve been blown away.

Reinvigorate does exactly what the name implies: it takes something bland like stat tracking and turns it into something beautiful and fun (if you can believe that). It satisfies two of my needs: deep analytics and an intuitive interface. It doesn’t have quite all the bells and whistles that Google Analytics has, but it has everything I’d ever need and more for LifeDev. And it’s dang pretty to boot.

There’s a been a lot of justified hype about mint, and I’d say that Reinvigorate is as good if not better. (Granted, I didn’t give mint too long of a shot, as it’s a And it’s not even out of beta yet! Here’s why I think it’s the coolest thing since sliced bread:

  1. Dashboard: What I need to know right away. The dashboard gives me a quick look at what my site’s doing in real time.
  2. Easy breakdown of types of traffic. Reinvigorate doesn’t make me search too hard to find the the data I need. Traffic, Visitor detail, session, site & path, and search & referrer are the main categories of data. You have to dig around Google Analytics a while before you can find simple things like daily unique visitors.
  3. A beautiful interface. I know mint is pretty, but reinvigorate has one of the most beautiful interfaces I’ve seen in a long time.

There are plenty of other reasons to love reinvigorate, but the bottom line is this: It’s a fairly robust stat program that’s easy to use.It’s still in a closed beta, but can sign up for an invite at their homepage.

    Wow! I’ve been looking for tracking solutions and finally settled in with Covert conversion Pro.

    I can now track to the sale but if it looked like Reinvigorate I would be in heaven1
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Those are great resources Geoff.

    Yeah, with all the free analytics packages, I dont know why anyone would pay for stats these days. At least for blog stats.

    If I was doing a more in-depth site that needed conversion tracking, etc., I’d probably pay. But Google Analytics has that, so maybe not.

    I am definitely looking forward to recieving an invitation to this beta service. I just bought Mint, and I am only mildly impressed. This looks by far much better. (I’m just going to copy+paste a comment I made on a different blog about analytics.)

    From personal experience, I have noticed that you don’t need to pay anything for a good statistics system. Personally, I use these two plugins, and I find they satisfy all of my stat cravings.

    1. Firestats (http://firestats.cc/)
    Wordpress plugin that includes instantly-updated visitor count for the last 24 hrs, as well as referrer counts, popular pages, and user stats such as browsers, countries, and operating systems.

    2. Tantan WP plugin (http://tantannoodles.com/toolkit/wordpress-reports/)
    This cool plugin shows you your Google Analytics and FeedBurner statistics neatly in your Wordpress dashboard. Obviously you need a GA and FB account, but I think that having it all integrated into your WP account is amazingly useful. Unfortunately, you need a specific type of SSL threading or something, so it doesn’t work properly on GoDaddy hosting.

    I bought Mint Statistics a week ago, but so far I have found it to be only slightly more useful than my previous set-up. If you can’t afford the $30, don’t worry, your not missing too much.

    Wow, that looks sweet. I hope they give me an invite. Thanks for the heads-up, Glen!
