You're away from your computer when you get an alert on your phone that traffic has spiked to an all-time high. Was it random good fortune or did something happen, good or bad, to cause the spike that you need to get on top of? To ensure that you can access your real-time analytics in real time when you need them, chartbeat has released a free iphone app
that can keep you in touch with the heartbeat of your site wherever you may be.
The chartbeat app comes with push notification alerts so that you can be the first to know when something is happening on your site, be it traffic spiking on a particular blog post, page load slowing significantly or the site itself going down. You can then go to the iphone app and get the essential information you need:
- How many people are on my site?
- What are they doing?
- Where did they come from?
- How is my site performing?
The app is available for free from the App Store
, please let us know what you think! If you would like to see your analytics on the go but don't have a chartbeat account you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here
Chartbeat will also be sending you a summary each week of the key events important to you that occurred on your sites:
You'll be able to get a sense of your overall traffic, uptime and site performance from both the server and the user side that should help you better understand the context of the alerts you receive. You can manage your weekly summaries from the Alert page
in Chartbeat settings
