ClustrMaps trumps Geovisite, Amung.Us, Feedjit, Neoplanet! December 22, 2008Posted by ClustrMaps Team in News.
Hey, all of these tools are cool, we love ’em, and we enjoy seeing the different aspects each one emphasizes! Of course, there are tradeoffs about which aspect you like best and which is best for your site. So naturally we were extremely pleased when Steve at “I’ve Been Thinking About This…” wrote a detailed analysis of “What visitor map to use?”.
I’ve been looking at blog maps for one that does what I want. It doesn’t seem to be too much to ask…
2. Shows the visits on the map
3. Tracks visits for at least a month
4. Counts the total visits
5. Zooms in or identifies towns clearly
6. Widget thumbnail image scales well in the sidebar
7. Doesn’t distract the user from the blog post
This was an unsolicited analysis, and indeed he criticized us regarding two of his metrics (5 and 6) – but we clarified one issue (and in the New Year we will have a ‘clean sweep’ of all 7 issues) and he picked us as his widget of choice because it does most of what he needs, better, and in the way he needs it. Thanks, Steve! Read what he has to say, and why he prefers ClustrMaps.
Season’s Greetings and Happy New Year to all our loyal fans!
