Additional Data Tools
You may already be familiar with some other data mining tools already offered through DMXZone. They include the following:
- Advanced Data Calendar Bundle PHP: Add and edit events, appointments or birthdays in user-friendly inline popup window. Choose from Comma Separated (CSV), XML, Excel or PDF file formats and get a direct download. Requires DMXzone Calendar together with Advanced Tooltips and Advanced HTML Editor 2.
- Feed Genie: Get your favourite feeds as Data Sources directly in Dreamweaver.
- Feed Genie & HTML5 Image Enhancer Bundle: This bundle allows you to enhance images or feeds thumbnails with fantastic effects. Add your favourite feeds as data sources in Dreamweaver and create real-time animation effects, reflections, gradients, image filters and transition with only few clicks and without any Flash.
- Universal Data Exporter PHP: Choose from Comma Separated (CSV), XML, Excel or PDF file formats and get a direct download.
- Universal Data Exporter ASP: Ditto.
Notice that the above extensions with data, and they also offer ways to visualize that data. However, if you want to accumulate data on a Web site or other Web-based site such as Facebook, you may need to incorporate other tools.
TIP: Go to the results page for data mining search at DMX to find tutorials, premium content and more about data mining.
Other Web-based Tools
- Facebook Insights: View and decipher Fan Page analytics from this useful tool. As I mentioned in the previous article, you can view demographics, increases or decreases in Page participation and more.
- AWstats: Designed with flexibility in mind, AWStats can be run through a web browser CGI (common gateway interface) or directly from the operating system command line. Some Web hosting services offer this open source analytic tool as part of a hosting package.
- Google Analytics: You can use the Web-based tool or download the plugin to use in WordPress. This tool offers insights into your website traffic and marketing effectiveness. As an afterthought, you might want to check out Google Apps for additional CRM materials that will integrate with any Google app site.
- Webalizer: The Webalizer is a fast, free web server log file analysis program. It produces highly detailed, easily configurable usage reports in HTML format, for viewing with a standard web browser. Once again, this resource may be offered by hosting solutions without charge.
- Woopra: Currently split into two services, a desktop client program and a web server application, Woopra radically decreases the load on network resources, harnessing the power of desktop processing to display graphic charts, graphics, and analysis. Woopra Plugins, which integrate Woopra's web analytics into website and blog databases and templates, generate even more information for the webmaster or blogger about their site's traffic and usage. Woopra offers a free plan and a variety of paid versions with additional benefits and features. For Windows, Linux and Mac.
I could go on, but the list of Web-based analytic tools is a long one. For a list of more Web-based analytic services, check the Wikipedia list. Also, you might want to read the article, Web-Based Analytics Vs Web Server Logs. Both analytics and Web server logs serve a similar purpose, but function differently and are intended for different objectives.
Linda Goin carries an A.A. in graphic design, a B.F.A. in visual communications with a minor in business and marketing and an M.A. in American History with a minor in the Reformation. While the latter degree doesn't seem to fit with the first two educational experiences, Linda used her 25-year design expertise on archaeological digs and in the study of material culture. Now she uses her education and experiences in social media experiments.
Accolades for her work include fifteen first-place Colorado Press Association awards, numerous fine art and graphic design awards, and interviews about content development with The Wall St. Journal, Chicago Tribune, Psychology Today, and L.A. Times.
