To best serve your website’s audience, you need to understand them as best you can. The best way to do that? Analytics. There’s a few ways to track your website’s traffic, though Google Analytics is probably the most popular due to its price — free.

However, Google Analytics has several important features missing that other analytics providers offer; namely real-time stats and heatmaps. Reinvigorate is one of those providers, which we’ll take a look at today.

The Reinvigorate team has also generously offered a sweet promotion for our readers, so be sure to take a look!

Just as the title says, Clientr is a super simple app for tracking clients and your deals (projects) with them. In addition to that, Clientr is rocking a very sexy Mac-like interface that I love seeing in web apps.

Any software project is going to need issue and bug tracking. The bigger the project, the more the developers and the larger the userbase, the more critical it gets to keep tabs on what issues are outstanding, what features are in the pipeline, what schedules you are keeping and what is urgent.

Keeping tabs on your employees or co-workers is no easy task. In most work places, in-out monitoring is done using a whiteboard & marker which has to be updated by hand or a clunky desktop app that does not allow everyone to access the status board. Tabzon is placed comfortably in between the two, being centrally editable and extremely collaborative. The app is minimal without feature creep, however, is it powerful enough to be a whiteboard replacement?

Have you ever taken a trip to see friends or family and during the trip you’re called several times being asked, “Hey, where are you at? Are you close?” Or maybe you’re taking a solo trip and you would like people to know your last recorded location in the event the unthinkable happens. The potential uses for real-time phone GPS tracking is plentiful but the solutions, unfortunately, aren’t.

One of the most popular web analytics apps available right now is Google Analytics. While it has a powerful collection of features and capabilities, one of the features I wish it had most is live tracking. While I do care what happened yesterday, last week and during the month; I often times want to see what’s happening right now. I generally use bit.ly to track link traffic live, but that’s not a real solution.

Clicky, however, is a real solution; providing real-time analytics for your site. Real-time tracking could even be considered just the icing on the cake, considering Clicky offers enough additional features and options to make the competition hang their heads in shame. I’ll take a look at Clicky, it’s features and why it’s used by sites like Smashing Magazine and Mashable.

Last week I talked a bit about how the web has changed and the rise of self-publishing. Another trend on the web that has gained momentum the last couple of years is personal data tracking. People from all walks of life are jumping on the concept of documenting certain aspects of their lives. And when the web is involved, it’s not enough to document, but people want to share that data as well.
