Thoughts on a new feature? [Mar. 29th, 2002|06:51 pm]
Paid Members
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'd like to know

- when i'm linked to, dun care if it's specific to the post
- when my posts are put in memories
- when my posts and replies are responded to, but i wouldn't like to have to check email for this. i don't know how the heck you could do that except to have a page of links generated by replies or something. heaven only knows. it's just a thought, perhaps a bad one.
- a list of people who have responded to my posts or comments, from most to least (at least my friends).

i'm so nosy and demanding. i'll go away now. :)

personally, the "referral stats and unique page views" sound cool, but not cool enough to put a bunch of effort into it. I mean if you guys are bored, go for it, but it wouldn't be the first on the list of things I'd like to see. However, the "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" sounds very very interesting! I would love to see that!

random order - not in order of desire

1) lj-level, i'd love a histogram that showed the number of journals at each "level" by number of total posts - so X journals have 0-5 total posts, Y at 6-10, etc. - I think this would be enlightening simply because the more I look at possible journal names, the more I see what I see are basically abandoned journals - the histogram gives ppl a feeling for where they fall in the overall scheme as well.

2) #1, same level, but done on a per-period (week, month, year) basis

3) #1, but journal-level instead of lj-level and basically total post count per month in a histogram-ish bar graph (not technically a histogram of course)

4) track journal hits by referrer, specifically search engines - so I can find out that I got X hits referred to my journal by google, Y by altavista, etc. - non-search-engine referrers would be fine as well

5) histogram of userpic choices - "default" will be the biggest one (perhaps strip it out) but being able to see which userpics you're under-using, over-using, etc. may help ppl pick new ones or cycle through their choices. This would be at the overall level and at the per-period level.

6) same as #5, but for moods instead (you were amused 47 times this month, annoyed 13 times, etc.)

7) same as #6, but lj-level instead of journal-level - this lets you do something I've wanted for awhile - a way of tracking the "mood of lj'ers" as a whole

8) same as #7, but restricted to your set of friends

9) higher filesize limit for paid members on userpics - ideally higher res, but i understand the concern there

10) get emails for anything in the thread beneath one of your comments - if someone responds to a comment I make and then another person respons to that comment, I don't get an email about it even though I'd like to get emails about the entire thread going on underneath the comment I posted.

that's enough work-avoidance for now :)

Re: random order - not in order of desire

These are great suggestions. Personally, I am most interested in lj-level statistics and item #10. Also, I would like to know when someone lists my entry as a memory.

Slightly off-topic, but what I'd really love to see is a page where all the nifty LJ toys can be found. I remember seeing something about a "Six Degrees" post a while ago, and something else that created an image showing how you and your friends were linked (who else was friends with each other).

If these were organized it'd be all spiffy.

As always, hundreds of thanks to the people who're keepin' LJ forging ahead!

sounds great - count me in!

one question though - when it says you wont be showing logged in viewers, does this mean that we wont see their usernames as a hit, just as 'livejournal user' instead?
Personally, i'd like to see which people specifically are looking at my stuff. It's just a curiosity - if they want to look at my stuff without that coming up, just log out?

"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."
What if the link or entry in question is protected? (Either the linked entry or the entry making the link, which is probably two or three separate questions, actually)

I agree on that one. No specifics, but general interests and locations would be cool

i think ip addresses are interesting.. if there is not perceived reason not to show them, why not show them?

How about a list and a count of how many comments every user has made in the journal?

*jumps on the bandwagon* i like! i like!

now, how exactly would this be set up? is it more like a webtrace, or would there be just links, or what?

I don't understand the no IP address thing.. you can always go to network-tools.com, enter in the addy and at least get a handle on a person.. (this works when you have anonymous posters.. it's actually helped me narrow down the suspects).. but whatev.

Otherwise, cool idea.
