I’m constantly surprised by the number of people who are using the simple vendor discovery tool I built. I know that some sales people use it to check out prospects and others use it just to keep track of who is using Google Analytics. Other than that, its usage is a mystery to me.
Still, if you’re interested in who is using what web analytics tool you might want to subscribe to the new RSS feed I published. That way you can be updated whenever someone searches a URL looking for tag-based analytics tools.
Once it starts to rain here in Oregon I’ll probably build a Analytics Demystified-branded Konfabulator widget to stream the feed to your desktop. I know, you’re praying for rain …
