The coolest place on the internet, according to this tagline.

We love Tumblr and we especially love the diversity and creativity that goes into making it the wonderful place that it is. That means we know that not everyone works at a company with the budget for these plans. We’re working on more analytics offerings for everyone, including a version for anyone interested in measuring their personal blogs. That’s coming soon, so stay tuned!
Union Metrics’ Tumblr analytics system — which uses the Tumblr firehose — is now available, though most users can’t afford the $499/month starting price (most companies totally can, though). The company says they’re working on it.

More on that Tumblr analytics tool we posted

Too much exposure, too fast? It’s not working for me :(

» SFB says: It’s very finicky about addresses. When setting yours up, type in your address using the format “yourname.tumblr.com” without a slash, even if you have a custom domain. It will come up with an error if you don’t. Either way, it’s still pretty beta, but it looks cool. Only real downside is that the information getting analyzed is public, so just know that going in. — Ernie @ SFB

Google Ripples: Concentrated awesome. This is the future of analytics right here. You can get as broad or as granular as you want, and in a completely non-linear way. Imagine if Tumblr did this — a map of your reblogs. That would be some bad-assery right there. But Google got there first, and so they get the high-fives.

NewsBeat opens in public beta: We’ve tried a few analytics services in our day, and one of the ones we tried was ChartBeat. We liked it, but it perhaps wasn’t granular enough for us — particularly because it mainly gave a snapshot of the specific moment — making it hard to track data from a contextual, historic perspective. (Our current favorite is Clicky, which is like Google Analytics on steroids.) Apparently realizing that the tool wasn’t the best for journalism, they went back to the drawing board and created NewsBeat. Looks pretty cool and seems to work around some of the problems we had with the earlier service. Might try it out.

According to our awesome real-time analytics software, a Fox News Channel employee has looked at this particular post. (Also, Fox News apparently forces its employees to use Internet Explorer 7. Upgrade to Chrome, jerks!) We hope it’s Bill O’Reilly. Paging our anonymous tipster!
