Thoughts on a new feature? [Mar. 29th, 2002|06:51 pm]

[opiummmm]
We've had this idea we've been kicking around for a while, and we thought we'd get some feedback from this community, because if/when we do add it, it will be a paid feature.

Basically we want to introduce individual journal statistics, complete with referral stats and unique page views. This could also include statistics that would show you how many people have linked to a specific journal entry of yours, or who have linked to you in one of their journal entries.

Keeping in mind that we won't:

  • Show you logged in viewers, because of privacy issues that could incur;

  • Show you IP addresses, because they don't reveal any useful information;



What features would you like to see in a LiveJournal stats tracker?

I was actually thinking last night that it'd be nice to know who has your entries linked from their journal, and who has an entry of yours in their memories.

I second that...

I was just thinking the same thing myself earlier today. I'm sure many others besides myself would love to know who has linked to my posts and placed stuff in their memories. Curosity killed the cat. :-)

Some knowledge of IP addresses could provide "useful" information: knowing the first few octects could let you deduce what country your viewers are coming from. Maybe we could just hide the last one for privacy?

or maybe get the server to figure that stuff out and keep track
that way privacy won't be the same issue

I think those would be really great ideas. I'd also like to be able to find comments that I have made in other journals.
And just a question, when is the trust system supposed to go into effect?

I would really appreciate a directory of comments left in other journals (n/t)

n/t = no text

That's enough for me! I love referrer stats and unique viewer stats. :)

RSS

I'd like to know how many people read my journal, and how many people subscribe via RSS

Re: RSS

Is this a general feature for paid users? (I mean, is RSS one of the customviews?)

That reminds me - I'd love to see list of the public "custom styles" preferrably with thumbnails/descriptions. I occasionally see little clumps of them linked in someone's journal, but I have no idea whether there's a list somewhere.

How about how show many times each user has commented on your journal (i.e. expand 'Comments Received' to show who has left the comments)? That shouldn't be too difficult.

Number of returning LJ users (but don't show who)
Customized (so you can enable counter, but turn off web browser type, for example)
Graphs (of users visiting in the last hour, 24 hours, weekly, monthly, yearly)

And perhaps more when I can think of something

A stats tracker would be faboo, but could it be configured so that a user can block their own hits from showing up in the stats? I've got my friends page set "live", so being able to block myself would be handy. :>

Also, I suggested this some time ago, but not sure if anyone remembers... it goes along with tracking who links to any of your entries... perhaps a way to find out who's added any of your journal entries into their memories.

i was thinking of ways of how to make livejournal a more fun place to be. And I thought of this...

wouldnt it be cool to see who has the most interests as you...?

i mean, you fill at your interest part and then there would be a link to see who has the same interests as you.

sorry if this confuses anyone.

Sounds great! Weekly reports would be good - live stats aren't really necessary (even if they're nice). I suppose some folks would want a counter of some sort, though I can't stand them myself :-)

How about:
Top (X) linked journal entries
Top (X) most-commented entries
Number of readers - (some sort of history on this would be nice, for those that're trying to play to an audience, even if it's just a general trend like "Up from last last week" or "Generally increasing"))

And the ability to export this information in a popular log analyser format (faking the fields you don't feel like giving out, for privacy's sake) would be nice, but rather processor intensive I guess, and hardly necessary.

How about a counter that only displays for the logged in user on their own journal?
