Address Bar Sharing Available in Chrome

The AddThis Address Bar Sharing Analytics feature is now available with in Chrome versions 14 and above. We can now track copy and paste data from Safari, Firefox and Chrome, which covers 50% of the browser market share.

For those who do not know, Address Bar Sharing Analytics is a feature that measures how often users share your site by copying the URL from their address bar and send it via email. IM or other channels. Getting this data is a great way to understand ALL of your content that is being socialized and better understand where some of that direct traffic is coming from.

Turning on Address Bar Sharing Analytics for your website is super easy and only takes one additional line to your AddThis code:

<script type="text/javascript">
var addthis_config = {"data_track_addressbar":true};

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or feedback.

    Hey Micali, Address Bar Sharing Analytics is a new feature that measures how often users share your site by copying the page URL from their address bar and sending it via email, IM or other channels. This type of sharing is often the biggest source of viral traffic to your site but is misreported by traditional site analytics tools as “direct traffic”.
