Woopra, to monitor visitors in real time

Woopra is a web service that lets you know in real time who is visiting a site, ideal to know what is happening on the website from the side of users. There is an online version, with an impeccable development on Javascript and AJAX, with the disadvantage that it does not run on first generation IPad; There is a desktop version developed on Java and a simplified version for IPhone. Connecting in one disconnects the other, the desktop version is much more functional by the quick options of the right mouse button although the design in the web version is cleaner.

To implement it, you just have to register, register the websites that we hope to monitor and enter a script in the site template. The service is free up to 30,000 page views, then there are $ 49.50 annual plans, going forward.

Among the things that can be done with Woopra are:

  • Know where visitors are coming from It is not possible to know the identity but there are interesting aspects such as the city from which you visit, the type of browser, public IP, how you arrived at the site and operating system.
  • Identify specific visitors using a tag, so you know when they return.
  • Create alerts so that a sound or a pop-up window is executed, when a specific event happens, such as: When a visitor arrives, from a Spanish-speaking country, with the keyword "Download AutoCAD 2012". If the desktop application is used, it can be a panel at one end of the desktop.
  • You can share the statistics with another user or even raise personalized periodic reports. This is great, to be able to share it with the company or professional that brings us the SEO services.
  • Customize the visitor's label on the map, with specific characteristics such as time spent on the site, if you are a new visitor, etc. They can even be seen in Google Earth.

Besides, it allows you to activate a tab on the website, where you can see how many visitors are connected and, at best, enable the option to talk to someone in charge of the page that is available. This can be deactivated or customized, but it is ideal when someone in support, or a visitor, needs to interact at a specific time.

So, if you want to talk to the author of Geofumadas, you just have to see that tab appear as available.

Additionally, with the stored data you can visualize graphs to know trends, most used keywords, countries and cities where visitors come from. In this part, it does not do anything that Google Analytics can not, even, the disadvantage that the data is not stored permanently, the free version saves it for 3 months, the paid one from 6 to 36 months.

But Woopra does some things that we do not do with Analytics, or at least not with the same practicality, as:

  • Knowing where people have come from the site, what gives us useful, about which pages we refer to benefit from our links or ads.
  • Know what downloads we have caused, either within the site or external links. This could be very practical if we are promoting software and we want an alert to be raised every time it is downloaded.
  • Find out what result an article has had in specific, depending on the day and time it was published.
  • It is also practical to know why images are arriving visitors, in which I have discovered that Geofumadas has an enviable position with the word "pornography" in Google Images, Ups !. I missed so many visits in the post Topography, single images.
  • Of the best, it allows to analyze irregular peaks of spammers, which are often manifested by an exaggerated amount of actions. You only have to identify a visitor, and the filter shows us the frequency that has been on different days, although it has changed IP, Woopra associates it as a visitor; this makes it easy to ban it with Wp-Ban or a similar plugin.
  • With the potential offered by filters, it is possible to make many specific analyzes. For example, which is the page that most users in a specific city have seen. Or which pages attracted visitors from Mexico who took more than half an hour browsing the page. Or see the calendar of visits, filtering those visitors who arrived more than three times in the same day; in short, this becomes very attractive.

But the most addictive is the monitoring of visitors in real time. You can learn a lot with this: visitor customs, browsing behavior, identification of loyal users and times of day with more frequency of access. Also for SEO applications and online advertising campaign tracking. Google visits are equivalent to "Visitors", that is, unique daily visits; barely any 5 differs, which makes sense because Google must pass an update every certain amount of seconds, while this is live. The other statistics are called "Visits" which are the sessions, included if a visitor came to the site more than once a day, this is very practical and finally there are the "Page views" that is equivalent to the page views.

Ir a Woopra.
