Feedblitz Analytics now tracks In-Post links

Till now blog publishers could access the stats only for what the users click on the website. Content publishers could either use freebies like Google Analytics or FeedBurner Analytics or CrazyEgg, to get stats for their blogs for cheap, or get additional stats for RSS feeds from FeedBurner. However detailed stats of click-throughs from RSS readers or RSS-Email newsletters were not available. Not anymore. With the launch of “Automatic In-Post Link Tracking” feature by Feedblitz, publishers should be able to get insight into this very important missing metric for their newsletters. In case you don’t know about Feedblitz, it is a Boston, Massachusetts based startup that converts Blog/RSS feed to email based newsletters.

Once publishers enable the link tracking feature from their Feedblitz Syndication Setup menu, the service will automatically start tracking user clicks on internal links and add it to your link tracking database. If as a publisher you are interested in the same link occurring across multiple posts, Feedblitz will aggregate all the click-throughs for that link. Stats provided as part of this service will vary according to the plan you are subscribed for. Standard users will have access to aggregate scores while premium users can drill down and see which user clicked on a particular link. Definitely a great feature that can tilt the balance in case you considering one of premium plans at Feedblitz.

As indicative from the subscription numbers, the service does not appeal to large number of users who might be better of using FeedBurner’s Email service or FeedBlitz to receive a single consolidated email per day.
