pMetrics Adds Traffic Source Summary to Dashboard

By Char

pMetricsMy favorite statistics package for my sites just got even better. Honestly, I didn’t think it could, but it did. The team at pMetrics have added a Traffic Source module to the pMetrics dashboard which gives you a quick overview of what the source of your site traffic is including:

  • Search traffic
  • Direct/Bookmark traffic
  • Link traffic
  • Social Media traffic (oooh, this is particularly cool)
  • Email traffic

Of course, this is in addition to the other information on the dashboard such as how many visitors, actions, time spent, bounce rate, the inbound links, top searches, and top content page information.

pMetrics offers a free version of their product, but the paid version is very affordable and worth every penny.  For more reasons why I love pMetrics, check out:

They also have a ‘X visitors online right now’ number showing on the basic summary panel on the dashboard. Dunno if it was there before or not, but that’s quite cool as well.

And yea, props on the traffic source panel. it makes it really easy to compare traffic sources from month to month.


Ahmed – how did I miss seeing the number of visitors online right now feature? Too cool – no I have to go look.


Thanks for the info. I’m going to check out Pmetrics, but I’ve been really hooked on Googles Analytics lately- and I can’t wait to start using their website optimizer for A/B splits.
