The director of technology at my office is this cat named Dave.
Now, Dave the Tech Guy will come up with some dandy stuff from time to time. His most recent invention is called craigalytics (note the groovy lack of capital letters) and you can find it at craigscounter.com. And this craigalytics stuff is available for The Hawg’s favorite price – absolutely free.
So, what is craigalytics and what’s so great about it? Simply put, it provides analytic data for ads on craigslist.com. If you want to see how well your craigslist ad is doing by seeing how many hits it gets, where in the world they are coming from and what times people are looking at it, craigalytics will provide all of that.
What do you have to do to use craigalytics? Just enter your craigslist ad, visit craigslist.com, set up your campaign and insert the generated HTML code into your site. It’s that easy. Oh, and Dave tells me he's added Facebook integration, too, so that happy craigalytics users can share their craigslist ads with their friends.
And, no, I don’t get a dime for posting this about craigalytics (believe me, Dave can’t afford an advertising campaign as he mostly views his invention as something cool that people might like). Hey, this is a pretty slick service developed by a fellow Arkansan who is a friend of mine. That’s worth a blog post, right?
