If you're talking about live feed thingy that's the same as the one on my blog...I saw it on another blog I was reading and thought it was a good idea so clicked the link on the feed itself. It's quite handy, telling you where people have come and where they're going. I got quite a shock that there were so many none English speakers reading it so I added the Babel fish translator too.

...you gotta be kidding GK?!...are you having a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy moment or is that a real thing?... :mf::mf:

I was gonna click on your thingy (pardon the intrusion!) but when Mr M said you could do it through the forum somehow, I thought I'd ask first

...you gotta tell me more about this Babel Fish!...but if you have me hunting the www for a HGttG non-existent googlebox jobby, I'll hunt you down!...:D:)

Thanks

Well blow me, I have a traffic widget and a Babel Fish of all things now!

Thanks to GK! - tried to give you some rep but I'm not allowed to do you again just yet!

Oh my, I wonder what I have to feed my new fishy? :mf:

Hi Shaz,

I think you missunderstood me..

I assume your talking about the "live traffic widget" like the one on glasskanvas blog ?

That widget can be found here: http://feedjit.com/

Hope that helps..

Thanks Mr M, I thought it might have been on the forum somewhere but I couldnt see it, no worries - I got it from GKs blog in the end

Pauline - have a look at GKs blog and you'll see what we mean! - its a lovely little Live Traffic Report thingy that displays info about your visitors - and he wasnt kidding about the Babel Fish either! - I grabbed one of those of his blog page too!

Its amazing all the gadgets you get to see and link to from everyone elses blogs, I cant believe what gizmos are out there!

Just a thought, but if I go to a site where there are things on view like live traffic feed I am tempted to follow the links away from the site to see where people have come from.
I think that they are valuable tools for the website owner but why give away your secrets to any opposition?
You can still have such details to hand, but not on view to your competition. In my wedding blog my counter has behind the scenes stats etc.
I want my viewers to stay and look on my site for as long as possible with out being distracted.... unless of course they are leaving by clicking the google addds!!! (rubs hands in a greedy way!):D

I know its tricky isnt it? I put Google Adsense on mine right at the beginning and then added the Ebay and Amazon affilliates but I guess they could just tempt people to move on...

My statcounter sounds like Incy's where the stats must be behind the scenes cos only the numbers show on my Blog.

I'll see how it goes - I'm so new, I'm just glad to have any visitors at the minute! :)
