At AddThis, we’re always trying to make our analytics more informative and useful. This week we’re adding a feature to help keep you abreast of changes in your site’s traffic: email alerts. Alerts notify you by email when there are significant changes to the rate of shares or traffic. Alerts can be set up for specific URLs on your site, a specific domain, or all domains in an AddThis profile.
AddThis alerts have a couple of great uses. First, like our analytics emails, they can help you keep a pulse on the the overall state of sharing for your sites—with domain-wide alerts you can be on top of any noteworthy change in your site’s traffic.
Perhaps the more powerful way to use alerts is setting one for a specific page that you’re interested in. Say you’re making a new blog post and you want to know what the Social Web thinks of your literary masterpiece. Create an alert for the post’s URL and we’ll let you know when it goes viral. You’ll find a link to create an alert at the top of every content detail report.
