Over the years, we’ve built different mechanisms to increasingly improve the way your analytics are collected and delivered to you. When you sign in to your AddThis Analytics, the information displayed to you at first is generated by queries, processed in the most minimal way so that you’re not sitting there long, waiting for the page to load.
It’s worked wonderfully, but we still want to make it better. So in late June (date TBD soon), you’ll see a change in your Analytics. Here are the details you need to know.
- More Interactive Charts — better charts means you’ll more easily navigate through your analytics, and get the information you’re looking for in a user-friendly dashboard that looks great for any report you need to generate!
- Informative and Actionable Metrics — analytics can be daunting, specially if there is a lot of information to sort through. To make it easier, we’re going to highlight the metrics that’ll be useful, and help you learn more about your site.
- Everything Will Be Snappier — faster loading charts, graphs, and tables. We’re optimizing data processing, storage, and retrieval in order to make this happen.
You’ll still be able to get in-depth analysis on popular and trending content, services/social networks, geography, and visitor audiences using the other tabs on the dashboard.
What You Need to Know
As part of the process of improving the analytics you receive, we’re changing the date range of the data you can access instantly. After the update later in June, you’ll only be able to go back a year to measure seasonal changes.
If you want to save your historical data, you can sign in to your AddThis Analytics (now), and export it. The Export link is at the bottom of every analytics page. Here’s a doc explaining how to export your data.
Keep a lookout for a notification of the date in your Weekly Analytics emails, and in your Analytics dashboard.
But no worries: in case you miss the deadline, and wish to gain access to your old data, simply submit a Support Ticket, and we’ll be happy to help!
