Tracker v2!
Ok I think most of the bugs have been ironed out for me to be comfortable enough to officially announce the new tracker. Thanks everyone for your patience and support! =)

CB was one of the first websites to provide a tracker - way back during our Xangans.com days - sometime during 2003. Now we undoubtedly have the most powerful tracker once again. Here are the features of the new tracker:

- New and improved user interface
- See where your visitors are coming from
- Unlimited daily and monthly bar graphs
- 30 days of log details (individual hits)
- New measures to prevent hijacking
- In-depth IP information
- Supports all personal sites
- Tracks top visitors, destination and referer pages

If you find any bugs, please post in this topic. I shall get to them as soon as possible! =)



Frequently asked questions
I signed up for the tracker, why doesn't it work?
You need to make sure to place your tracker code on your page for tracker to begin tracking hits. IF you set your profile page to private, only users who are actually able to see your profile page will be tracked. In the future, I'll add support so that the tracker code will fit in Headlines (myspace) so that private pages will be tracked regardless.

I'm trying to sign up but it keeps on telling me that the site is already being tracked, why?
Most likely you signed up for your page using another createblog account. If you can't remember your original createblog account, pm me with the url you wish to track and I can reset this for you.

How do I hide the tracker button?
The tracker button is there to help promote our tracker. It's also there as a privacy precaution - we believe that if you choose to use a tracker, visitors have the right to know they are being tracked. In the future, I'm going to release code for official members to hide their button, so if you wish to take advantage of this feature, give back to the community and contribute! rolleyes.gif

My tracker stops tracking everyday after a while and restarts again the next day, why?
For regular members, the tracker will track only the first 500 hits to your page. After this limit is reached, all other hits are ignored for the day. For official members, this limit is 10x the amount and set at 5000 hits. If you're a regular member, contribute to our community so that you'll be eligible to become an official member. Once you are promoted, PM me and I can increase your daily alloted limit.

My tracker works but the time is all incorrect, why?
Make sure your timezone is correct. Click on 'edit settings' (found on the red panel underneath the daily bar graph) and select the correct timezone. Also make sure your profile page's timezone is also correct.

What is the prevent hi-jacking option?
Enabling this option will make sure that all your hits are coming from your profile page. In another words, even if someone else "steals" your tracker code and inserts it into their page, all their hits will be ignored by your tracker.

Why does everyone come up as "Anonymous"
The tracker only logs the IPs of your visitors. It's your responsibility to "label" these IPs to profiles. A little detective work usually does the trick. For example, if you have a hit at 12:01am and someone leaves you a comment at 12:02am, then most likely the commenter is the visitor. To label IPs, click on the IP (anonymous) and then "identify IP".

I didn't know where to post, so if I'm posting in the wrong forums, please let me know...

I have the CreateBlog's Myspace profile tracker, and I have a question about it. When you click to view who has been to your site, it gives a list of people. Then when you Click on one of the names, it shows another list of people. Is that a list of people the person has been to aswell, or just people in their friends that viewed my profile?

I'm hoping this question makes sense, I don't really know another way to explain it?

I have a quick question. I put the tracker code on my page and went to it a couple of times to make sure it's working. It's logging me as living in Florida. I don't live in Flordia. Did I do something wrong when signing up for it or is it just a bug that will work itself out?

i still don't support the identifying IPs option. it's basically a clever way around the TOS. and i don't appreciate being 'identified' either.

I'm not sure if I am doing this right.. So I'm sorry if not. I have a few questions about the tracker. What are the unique visitors? Why do they all say anonymous? I know we have the option to try to identify the IP address but how do we do that? They all say they are from some other state or some other town. Any advice or help that anyone can give me would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Friendster isn't supported for the identify tracker option.

In the future are you planning on letting cb pages be identified for the tracker? Since most people that use the cb tracker, are cb members.

friendster is now supported by the tracker. cheers! =)

if you click on an ip, you can see all the sites that particular ip visited (thats also being tracked by the tracker).

the geolocation is not 100% accurate. there are certain ISPs that isnt support, like AOL and MSN TV.

nope not at all. with regular accounts, you can track up to 2 sites, with each site logging up to 500 hits per day.

unique visitors are people that actually went to your site. for example, say there are 10 people who visited your site. of these 10 people, 5 of them visited two times. your unique visitors will still be 10, but your page views will be 5 + 5 x 2, which is 15. get it?

also, the ips are anonymous until you "identify" them. this is entirely your responsibility, as the tracker only tracks the IP. =)

hey i was just wondering, i accidentally identified an Ip incorrectly and was wondering hw i get it back to anonymous because i dont know whose Ip it belongs to so ye just wondering if u can cancel the ID on a n IP if its incorrect. also i was wondering if u fix the issue wer u can track ppl who reply to ur comments thru the comment back link instead of actually visiting ur profile to reply. and also another fix if u could make it sothe tracker ignores you visiting ur own profile cause its easier to view ur log without urself viewing ur own profile a million times :P.

My tracker keeps saying that I'm from Florida, but I'm nowhere near Florida. Why is this?

hey thomasc thanks for reply. i fixed the tracker settings so it wont track my own ip. but with regards to undoing an id on an ip, i hv no idea whose ip it is cause he/she never comments me. but ther must be a way to undo an id because its such a basic command. does anyone else know???????i hope the tracker master releases patches for this software cause it is easily the best tracker out ther. also could you please make it so the ttracker button is hidden on my profile. i dont want ppl seeing i track them, theyll think im a low-life weirdo lol. its a tracker not a profile layout generator, this is sneaky stuff and shudnt be advertised. i think its better if less ppl know about this tracker. after all its a non-profit service.

Not sure if we're still supposed to click the link in red -- it's there, so I assumed so -- but I've clicked it every now and then the past couple days and I've always gotten the same response.

I am having problems with my Blogger tracker. It's not tracking. I put it in, and nothing shows up for visitors. Anyone give me an idea? I didn't have a problem before the upgrade.

Racharnold78,

Did you set up your tracker correctly, with the correct username, and such

It looks like it. It is under the right account for the right blog.
It is still stumping me.
