Google’s Real-Time Analytics is here. We've just got an email for Beta tester on the new interface of Google Analytics.

Realtime Google analytics As a Chartbeat experienced users, we wanted to check it, and compare the 2 solutions.

Chartbeat, a real-time analytics service founded in 2009, charges companies monthly rates starting at $9.95 and a $99 plan for tracking up to 10,000 Active visitors. (and yes, we need to upgrade it again ;-) )

Realtime ChartBeat analytics
First impression, we loved it, Google as always is a Killer. It's well embeded into analytics with the new User interface.

But when we compare the stats to Chartbeat, we have lost around 2000 Active users?! So there is 2 solutions:
1/ Chartbeat increase the number of active visitors to get paied more ;-)
2/ Google didn't track well the Active users

Anyway as we like big numbers, so we will continue with chartbeat until Google will release his Real time tracking from Beta.



Plus:
Integrated on Google Analytics
Google Analytics Real-Time is free.


Minus:
Less accurate than Chartbeat
Replay mode as Charbeat. You can replay the audience tracking during 30 days.
Site Performance as Chartbeat. Charbeat give you stats on Site


Conclusion: We will stay with both for few months..

 

Update: Tony and Ben from Chartbeat have contacted us to explain why the numbers are so differents:

"IF GOOGLES NUMBERS ARE SMALLER THAN CHARTBEAT 

This is probably because Google thinks your visitor isn't there any more, even if they still are. If you have engaging content, people are likely to stick around and we'll track them as long as they are there. With Google they will vanish after around 5 minutes. If 100 people visit a page and watch a video, they'll vanish from Google's report after 5 minutes; chartbeat will tell you that there are still 100 people there. "

So as we said the Chartbeat statistics are more accurate!!

 

Hebrew domain name IDN A client ask us to buy a Domain name in foreign languages it's mean not in Latin letter.

He heard that it's good for Google and SEO technics so he wanted to make it the primary domain of his website.
So we checked on the net and we have explain him why International Domain Names (IDN) wasn't a good idea.

First of all, you have to consider two kinds of "Foreign Letter" Domain name.
1/ For example, some companies sell Full hebrew domain names, (משל.קום)
You have to know that this kind is not accredited by the ICANN , so we will not speak more on it, it's just a stupid stuff.

2/ The other kind of Domain name, is the official IDN accredited by the INCANN. For example in Hebrew IDN you have the famous איקאה.com (IKEA in hebrew).
Now, here the list of the bad point of this IDN.
