MeasureMap – What ever happened ?

Google, Tech

When I initially started this blog I signed up with Statcounter service which showed me detailed data of visitors reading my posts. It was exciting and nice to see the increasing number of visitors every day.

However the free service of Statcounter has limited functionality and you infer less data with more visitors visiting your blog.

Later I started using Google’s free analytics service: Google Analytics.

I have been using it from the past 8 months and I still find it difficult to get in terms with the user interface. Of all Google products, I believe Analytics has one of the worst navigation interface.

There are 2 analytics service I have heard a lot of and I am waiting to try it.

  1. MeasureMap
  2. Mint

Mint definitely looks good except for the fact that you have to shell out 30$ for the service.

MeasureMap was acquired by Google a year back and even now the site is accepting email addresses for invitations.

There is no update on the future of this service and 1 year is really a long time ! What ever happened to the service ? What ever happened to Jeffrey Veen ?

    Whatever happened to MeasureMap release schedule & Jeffrey Veen?

    It’s a mystery to me where MeasureMap is at but Jeffrey Veen is interviewed on the The Merlin Show blog (43folders.com) and they joke about MeasureMap not “being updated so often that it gets annoying.”

    It’s annoying to me (also) that it’s not available to try.

    Thanks for that pointer David;Its probably certain that one day a post will appear in Google’s or MeasureMap’s blog saying that they are pulling down the service and users should consider using Google’s free analytics service called “Google Analytics” 🙂

    I preferred the concept of measuremap to analytics.

    If you liked MM, you should try FeedBurner SiteStats. It is just as easy to use and gives great stats for your blog.

    Carmelo n Johan,
    I still haven’t seen the way measuremap works, I have heard about it a lot but haven’t got an opportunity to try it (probably never will 🙂 )

    I did buy a license for Mint though and definitely its a refreshing change from Analytics/Slimstat/Statcounter/Feedburner stats

    Pay the $30 for the Mint. It’s an excellent stats app. I use it now after wasting time waiting for Measure Map. Embarrassing they can’t get it out.

    Andreas I did buy Mint and having a fun time with the app. Looks totally cool 🙂
