Hello,
I've just recently updated my profile on Proz and I would like to add some script to gather statistics about how many people see my profile and where they come from. Can anyone suggest some such tool that can be used in Proz?
Thanks,
Alessandro.

Hi Alessandro!
As a Proz member you can keep track of the people who visit your profile, or your kudoz and even your portfolio, and know where they are from.

Regards,
Mercedes

It's free. You have to paste a javascript code and that's pretty much it. Check my profile.

Hi Claudia - it might be free, but that doesn't make it easy!!

You could have supplied some info on HOW to paste the javascript onto one's profile page....nevertheless I will suss it out eventually (I'm not too good on technicalities)

All you have to do is click on the "Edit" entry in the "About me" section of your profile and paste the code into the text box. A small counter will appear on you profile (check mine).

It seems a nice script, I just hope it doesn't violate any Proz rule - some months ago I used a similar script but I had to remove it because some user complained about the fact that it gathered information by means of a cookie... But that's how these tools work, so what should one do?

A.

Got it sorted... Dec 22, 2007

Alessandro - thanks for the advice, but I did manage to get a hit counter set up after all, and it wasn't too difficult, really; but thanks anyway. Happy Christmas

I'm happy about that, but I think that being a member gives you access to the statistics feature of Proz that should report more useful information than a simple counter.
Happy holidays to you too (and anyone)!
Ale.
