Track Copy and Paste Shares Using Address Bar Analytics, Get Real-time Perspective with Live View

We’re introducing several new features that make AddThis the first sharing platform to enable you to see all sharing activity occurring from your site in real-time.

AddThis Analytics enable you to track how sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Email and other services impact your traffic.  To date, our analytics covered sharing occurring solely through our tools.  Today, however, we now give you the ability to track one of the biggest sources of shares – URL’s that are cut and pasted from the address bar – using Address Bar sharing analytics.

Address Bar sharing analytics give you the ability to track URLs that have been sent via emails, IMs and to forums using copy/paste. This captures a whole new segment of sharing that we have found to be up to 10x that of using social buttons. You now get a larger picture of where your direct traffic is coming from and how your users are really sharing your content.

We’ve also launched a Live View dashboard, which displays shares and clicks as they are happening. You can even open up a map to see our Geo Live View, showing shares and clicks popping up in the geographical location that they are happening!

With these new tools, you will gain even greater insight into what content is resonating with your users as well as gauge when and how certain articles gain traction. You can start making real-time editorial decisions to maximize your users’ engagement. Try them out and find out why partners like ‘USA Today’ are excited to use these tools.

We’ve also launched the ability to track activity from native Facebook LikeTwitter tweet and Google +1 buttons.  This is just the beginning of a larger analytics and data API push – stay tuned.

  • Ok I finally installed this toolbar and I must say I’m impressed. Wow all my shares from Facebook and Twitter are actually being viewed by other people. I’m kind a happy now to see I can affect so many people lives just by sharing something I’ve read online.

  • Will live view show up anywhere you want?

  • Unfortunately Live View only shows up in our analytics section

  • Wow. Nice. will be great to have this feature.

  • I can see the live view now. Do you still have issues ?

  • It will probably last time that I install it, too. Better late than kidney.

  • learning where the traffic from one’s site is one of the most important information that one needs to run a successful website and both the address bar sharing analytics and the live view dashboard will surely be a great help in learning more on where the traffic from one’s site are coming from. This is way better than google’s analytics!

  • Thanks Pacquiao! We think so too ;)

  • This is very attention-grabbing, You are an excessively skilled writer.

  • I’m impressed. I already installed this toolbar my twitter and facebook are being viewed by many people. In the dashboard it has many features and you can actually view were the traffic are coming from. Very nice! Thanks!

  • Hi, I’m not using AddThis yet. Currently I have 3 vertical social media buttons aligned next to each other on the right side of each page. Google + 1, Tweet and Facebook Like. I want to replace the Tweet button with the Follow button. However, the Follow button is not available as a vertical button. Is there any way AddThis allows me to do this? By the way, AddThis looks really good!

    I’m the webmaster for this site. I just installed AddThis Follow and Share code. The problem is that I inadvertently copied the website URL with the address bar tracking fragment in the URL. Now all my visits to pages are added to the analytics. I want to get rid of the tracking of just me. I’ve tried emptying my cookies and cache from both Firefox and Chrome, but they are still adding the tracking fragment in the URL. I need to stop being tracked! Just me, though. I want to keep the tracking on the site, but just remove myself from it. How can I do that? Thanks!
