It seems like everyone wants a MySpace tracker on their MySpace profile these days. For those of you who are not familiar with MySpace or MySpace trackers, a MySpace tracker is simply a tool that tracks visitors to your profile. Why is this important? Well, the fact that MySpace currently doesn’t allow you to know who is viewing your profile is more than enough reason for some people to want it.
Despite what you might have heard in chat room or forums, there is no working MySpace tracker. However there are a few sites that will help you get some information about who is viewing your MySpace profile. The key word being “some information”.
About the best MySpace tracker information that you can expect to get these days will be statistics, or stats about who is viewing your account. Meaning, you’ll be able to know how many people visited your profile on any given day… or whether certain people viewed it more than once.
I’ve included links and a short summary of what each stat counter or MySpace tracker does. If you have any questions, please direct them to the owners of the respective sites. And remember, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
Mr. Createblog created a Xanga profile tracker more than two years ago. And now he’s offering a MySpace tracker. Here’s a list of the features this MySpace tracker offers:
-Supports Myspace, Xanga, Livejournal, and more
-Up to three trackers per account
-Daily and monthly totals (unique + pageviews)
-Individual hit details (username, destination, referrer, location, ip, time of visit)
-Top visitors, destinations, and referrals
-Different timezone support
-Public or private stats (viewable to everyone vs yourself)
-Geostats! (see where your visitors are coming from on a map!)
-Very very easy to use!
-DOES NOT SUPPORT USERNAMES FOR MYSPACE
Be sure to spend some time in the forums to see what other MySpace users experience has been with this tracker before installing it on your own profile.
Not really a MySpace tracker, but this tool will automatically detect where in the world visitors are coming from when they visit your site. It’s pretty much a map with little colored dots displaying where your last visitors came from. Kind of cool, but the novelty soon wears off. Or at least it did for me.
This tracker is a little more complicated, but if you can figure it out, I’m told that it’s really handy and it actually works. The owner of this site offers a straightforward guide to configuring Statcounter (invisible web tracker) for social networking sites; like Myspace.
If you want to save time and see what kind of information you would really get to see from people visiting your MySpace profile, then do this. Go to the Statcouter site and click on DEMO at the top of the page. Then simply use the side menu to look through all the features. This will give you a pretty good idea of what you’ll see once you install it on your own MySpace profile.
So if you’re curious, give these stat counters or MySpace trackers a try. Don’t bother wasting your money on buying a MySpace tracker from ebay or some other site. I guarantee that these will stop working immediately or at the very least after a few days. Plus, you could be jeopardizing your MySpace account. Just remember to be smart and above all, safe. Enjoy!
