When you’ve looked at all of the great things that the web analytics tool Woopra does, you’ll probably never go back to Google Analytics again (and I really like Google Analytics). I’ve been monitoring the traffic on 3 Geeks for the past few months using Woopra, and I have to tell you that it is very addictive.

Woopra allows you to watch what visitors to your site are currently reading (yes, LIVE STATS!!), as well as how they found you, what links they clicked on while on your site, where they are from, and much, much more. Woopra also allows you to view a live map of where your visitors are from, run reports, set up filters and notifications, conduct live chat with visitors (which I haven’t tried because it sounds a little creepy), and view a calendar of visits and page views.

Woopra is free (for up to 30K page views a month), and there are subscription plans starting at $4.95 a month if you want to track >30K. I’ve embedded a great (and short) video from Trey Ratcliff over at Stuck In Customs where he goes through a few (just a few) of the great things that Woopra does to analyze your website traffic. If you have a website… you have to try Woopra!

  • Thanks for the very kind review Greg. And I LOVE the little image you created to accompany the post. 🙂

    Take care,

    So I emailed the folks at Whoopra and never heard back, so I thought I'd try asking you. Do you have any idea if Whoopra can work on internal only sites? We have an iternal site that it would be a huge help for, but I can't figure out if it will work behind a firewall. any help would be appreciated. thanks for showing it.

  • Laura,

    That's a good question… I think that it might work, since the information is sent to Woopra via a script you add to your website (right before the page footer.)

    The JavaScript should relay the information to Woopra, and the stats should be available to monitor.

    I haven't tried this, so I'm only guessing, but, it's a free service, so give it a test and let us know if it works.
