Analytics and Format



I've repeatedly seen various reports on how to measure website readership and how to properly calculate ad sales. While I do have that adwords spot on the side, I definitely have yet to (and don't intend to) turn a buck from my ramblings. Nonetheless, I'm intrigued by if impressions or time spent are a better measure of exposure. Anyway, in the next few weeks I'm going to see if there's anything not overly technical out there that will allow me to better see if anyone actually reads this.

Yes - I've tried feedburner, but because I aggregate my Tumblr, Flickr, del.icio.us, Twitter and normal ramblings into one stream this doesn't seem to work right. Also, Google analytics doesn't capture feed subscribers, so that's not a good fit either. Any other thoughts?

Jumping back to that previous statement, I like the various ways I can now share thoughts and the things I see. Whether snapping a picture with a camera phone and sending it to Flickr, or rambling in a longer drawn out fashion, the various web 2.0 apps allow me to be an author wherever I may be. I think the RSS stream shows everything well, but I'm not sure if the normal blogger layout captures everything adequately - how have other people integrated these various sources into their sites?
