    Hello! I love the analytics so far!  I've been doing a lot of playing around with them, and one thing I'd like to see or be able to do is to have the option to block my own IP from showing up in my reports.  I would like my own hits to not be part of my data - if that's possible. 

    Thanks so much for including me in the beta testing!  I'm sure I'll be back to post more comments!

    Hi Greg!

     

    Thanks for all your hard work on this project!  Loving it so far!

     

    We need to be able to block our own IP address for the data to be valid (like we used to block in Bisi)

     

    Can't wait to actually see a few days worth of data to see how the graphs look, etc to give you more input.

     

    Thanks again!

    I should add, our own IP address, _and preferably a list _(like Bisi had) so that we can block other known locations/employees.  Thanks!

    Love it so far! Unfortunately I am leaving town for 4 days and can't play with it. When I get back later in the week, I'll report back. Thanks for including me! Looking forward to it. What I have seen so far, I like! Great work guys!

    Adding.....I really like the tab layout and how another tab opens with the specific item data you're looking at and it's easy to -x- out of

    Is there any way for IF to mine the search data that got them to the item?  Years ago, sellathon had it, and it was great to see the exact search term that was used to reach the item - very useful data.

    I LOVE it! Thank you for including me. I love being able to see which items are being looked at. And seeing if a visitor has looked at multiple items. I almost feel like a spy. hee hee

    On the Listings tab, we can change the number of listings shown, but can only do previous or next page.  We need to be able to pick which page we want to see.

    I'd like to be able to see page 4 (with 100 per page), but I have to keep clicking Next.

    Also, what time zones are things set to?  I'm seeing different times, and for us to be able to analyze some things, we need to know when things are happening.  Can all times in Analytics be set to the time zone in our Main Preferences?  Right now, it looks like some things I'm seeing are in Eastern and some in Pacific.  Looks like graphs are in Eastern and data in lists are Pacific.

    Thanks.

    Hi Dan, we are aware of these issues and are working on them. Currently there is a time zone issue, it should be displaying in PST time, but we think some pieces of the system are showing GMT time which are causing some confusion. We should have that fixed within the next few days.

    Love it!!! If we import our e-Bay listings to another site, will the counts still be working on that site?

    Would also agree with everyone else. would rather my IP not counted.

    Thanks.

    P.S. also discovered that people really do look at auctions before 8 P.M. LOL

    How do you add it to old listings it is only on my new ones?

    If your old listings are not in inkfrog yet, go to "active listings", click a listing  to revise it. Add your counter and showcase to listing. Click on

    Revise, and you are good to go. Must be done one at a time and your existing template for e-Bay still exists. Could be a long process. At least that is how I did it. Someone else might have a better way. Or, make your changes as you re-list.

    Hope this helps,

    It is fantastic.  I love the four tabs.  I love the Birds Eye feature.  You did an awesome job.   I will play around with it and see if I can come up with anything that needs improvement but at this point, I see nothing.

    My Birds Eye view showed 0 or 1 person looking, which would be very unusual for me.  I called a friend in Oregon (I'm in CA) and asked her to park herself on one of my listings.  She didn't show up in real time, and she hasn't shown up yet in the visitor history.   Unless you only put the cookie or whatever on a handful (as opposed to all) of my items, something's amiss.

    Great and snazzy charts - however - timezone is a major issue - if you are trying to analyse what time of day a person visits your site, I'd like it to me MY time of day and not someone elses - Ideally, and probably hard to actually do, would be to show the time of day for the person who visited my items.

     

    EG, PST person1 visits item 1 at 3pm PST, now that should be 11PM GMT for me, so take your pick show me a US person1 visiting at 3PM their time or US Person1 visiting at 11PM my time - either way it should be clear or these stats are meaningless

     

    Am looking at these charts a lot now and they look good, but I want them to be useful so will post more comments as I think of them - hope this is a help

    Just took my first look, and I must say, once it's up and fully running, I think it's gonna be awesome. Absolutely love it so far!

    I think the trick is "once it's up and fully running". Mine don't work at all on the handful of actions it was enabled on.

    It is looking good so far.  I hope that in the new setup there will be a way to delete image folders without having to empty them first, or a faster way to empty them.

    Instead of dates on the dashboard tab now it's just today vs yesterday?  Alot of times I can't get mine to load up, it just sits and twirls and never loads or says data can't be retrieved.

    On the times when I do have data, it's nice, I can see where my visitors are from, etc., and it's got some cute bells and whistles but I really have yet to understand how that's going to help with traffic, sales, etc.  It won't drive traffic to my auctions.  If it's because it gives me the ability to see that there is little traffic on ebay right now, I already knew that?  I can see that from hit counters.

    I guess it's like rocking in a chair and worrying....it doesn't get you far but it gives you something to do until you auctions end

    I wonder why people are keeping an eye on some articles but yet to have a hit show up? Also have over 2000 articles on eBay yet only about 40 show up. Very strange.

    Do you have crowds rushing in?  My traffic is crap, no traffic not much potential for sales.  Now if IF could find a way to drive traffic to your auctions THAT would be priceless

    So far I have noticed on 2 days, the items viewed, aren't jiving with items I know are being viewed by customer questions, emailing back and forth with them.I still see the need for counters on my listings.When re listing on Ebay, it is much easier to to check hits right then and there at the top of the page.This instant view tells me if I need to revise pics, placement etc.I  think the time of views is the biggest help in Analytics for me. The seasons, chic night TV, sports etc effect viewing times and it changes constantly.Omnitures view of keywords used on Google, Ebay etc are also very helpful. I find a lot of items on Analytics I have tried in the past to be fun, more than useful. I'm more interested in useful ;)  Time zones, I prefer to see my own time zone. I'm better at adding 4 hrs than subtracting!! LOL Nice work Greg,but honestly, I am sure some people enjoy all the toys, myself, having explored Analytics in the past, I wouldn't pay for it.Give me my counters, a plus would be times of views and I'm all set. Oh ya, as TBFSM said, traffic, PRICELESS LOL
