New Analytics Sneak Peek

Sneak PeekWhile it’s a gloomy rainy day here in PA, it’s a great day at AWeber when we get to let the cat out of the bag on a project that’s been in the works for over 6 months.

Click Tracking With Your Domain Name

Gone are the days of seeing in your messages to be able to track subscriber click thrus. With the addition of one simple line of javascript to your website pages you’ll be able to track email click thru links automatically using your own domain name.


Clicks from all lists hourly.Open Rate & Clicks Over Time

Have you ever wanted to see when your subscribers open and click on your messages? Previously only a total number of opens and clicks were reported but now you’ll be able to drill into reports and see activity down to the hour.





Opens over time.Unique Open Rate & Click Totals

Is your message being read multiple times or forwarded to other recipients? The yellow line in the graph indicates

the unique number of users seen opening your email with images enabled. This data along with any other data represented in charts is also available for export in text format.



Clicks over time from all lists.Account Wide Reporting

Previously all reports and graphs generated were specific to each individual subscriber list. If you’re following best practices and segmenting your subscribers into different categories it’s possible you have multiple lists in a single account. With account wide reporting you’ll now be able to see subscriber activity for all of your lists combined into a single graph.



Call for Beta Users

We need to find a select group of beta testers to help put some of these new features thru their paces. If you have more than 100 subscribers, actively communicate with your subscribers at least once per week, and have the ability to put a line of javascript on your site then you’re a candidate. We can only work with 50 people at this time so you must meet these qualifications in order to participate.

To apply, please post a comment below including:

  • Why you believe you would be best qualified to put these new features thru their paces and how they would help your business.
  • Include your name, email, and website in the appropriate spaces provided so we can contact you.

[Update: There’s no need to include how many subscribers you have. We’re just looking for sites with more than 100 subscribers. -Tom]

[3/20 4:30pm Update: Thank you for everyone’s participation, your responses have been incredible! Our team is in the process of individually contacting everyone selected and will get with you for more details. Keep an eye on the blog for more updates in the coming days. -Tom]

[Update: The beta period has ended and these features are now live for all AWeber customers who signed up after 5/20/2008. If you signed up before then and have not yet upgraded, please contact us to do so. -Justin]

    Hi Tom,

    I would also like to beta test your new features. That would be such a big improvement. I believe click through rates would improve without sacrificing tracking system provided. Currently, I prefer to turn off the tracking system and use other tracking system instead.

    I have been waiting for these features for a long time. These are things I have used in other systems and I am glad to see them here in Aweber.

    I actually suggested some of these features a while back.

    I would love to take part as a beta tester.

    I send messages at least weekly and have complete control of the website.

    Thanks for the opportunity,

    I’d love to have access to just one of the new beta features, the click thru tracking with my url in the emal.

    I’ve found that I get a bigger click-thru rate when my own site name is in the email and it since most of my current income is via Google Adsense, I would really benefit to "brand" my email with my own links instead of the clicks.aweber link.

    I would be helpful as a beta-tester for numerous reasons. We have two aweber accounts. Our first account was opened about two years ago and with all the support chats and our daily usage of the account, I’m quite familiar with what our AWeber account does and does not do.

    In over 1400 total Broadcast Messages, I have only used the clickthrough tracking a handful of times because of the aweber domain. To be able to monitor all useful data with each broadcast would help me immensely.

    One of my accounts has about 10 lists in it. In the past two years I have asked numerous times if there were ways to globally search, configure or generate reports for all our lists at once. The global reports is going to be a great, I’m sure.

    Great to see you’re listening to what your customers say!

    Thanks for the blog, the webinars and the support chat!

    Would love to be a beta tester for the new features.

    Hi Tom,

    By Tuesday we should have our first web page up. We would very much like to be beta testers for you.

    If we can figure it out any one can!

    Hiya, I would love to be a part of the beta if I am not too late.

    Thanks Sally đŸ™‚

    Hi Tom,

    Compliments to the Aweber team on the new Analytics features. I am sure we would find it useful to know when subscribers open mails and click on links. It would help us time our mailing more efficiently. It would also provide information on which of our content subscribers found more useful, so that we could send them more related content.

    As you can see we have a large, growing database of subscribers that are well-managed so we are probably well-qualified to be a part of the Beta testing.

    More power to the Aweber team!

    Hi Aweber team :o)

    I would love to be part of your Beta test group. Tracking and measuring is really key to EVERYONE! both online and offline.

    As the world motors towards online enterprise, it’s even more crucial that services like the ones you’re testing are available.

    I for one would love to use such a service. Having such intelligence on what vistors really want, is absolutely key. Knowing what works and what doesn’t… what helps people to open stuff and what doesn’t will save SO much time and money for those (like me) who are working hard to find ways of serving our customers better.

    My list is growing, and keeping in contact with them is really important. Being able to track information, (for me anyway) will be vital.

    Thanks in advance guys :o)

    Hi, having been a member of aweber for a while we are excited to see a new analytics package added to the great benefits of this site as well. We use your services currently to send out over 2600 emails bi and tri-weekly. Having a service that can track email stats as far as openings and how long to open would benefit our business greatly. We look forward to speaking with you soon and hopefully being a tester.

    We email our list at least 5x a week and use text based email because we seem to get a higher response rate. We would love to be able to track those readers with this. This would help us fine tune our newsletters based on the responses we get from the topics.

    I am really excited to see you guys releasing this new analytics tool. I am a huge fan of Google Analytics and have spent the past 2 years improving my analytics knowledge to empower my websites.

    I can’t wait until you release it to the public.

    Hello! We are so excited about your new features! We are a bartending school in Dallas, TX. We have 2 websites that generate leads for the school. We use the A-Weber Web Forms to track which site the lead visited to request information, a seperate form for students that want to "register now" on each site, and then a seperate form for students that want to register for a specialized seminar. We track our clicks on our email blasts. We have learned to add pictures, videos, and links. It is very exciting! We currently send out weekly emails to all of leads that have not enrolled and seperate emails to our graduates. I have used other lead management systems in the past and A weber offers many features that they others are not, however I am always happy to see additional features being added. Please consider us for any new features that you are testing.

    I send out email newsletters about once a week. I am a technical, analytical person who understands stats and how to use them.

    I’d very much like to test your analytics. Please include me now.
