Bondsmith Offers Free Version of SiteGauge

Bondsmith is offering a free version of its SiteGauge Web site traffic monitoring and measurement service.

The new, free service can monitor multiple Web pages with a single account, while allowing users to view up-to-the-second traffic statistics simply by placing a fragment of HTML into their pages.

Among SiteGauge's features are Monday morning e-mail reports, e-mail on-demand, easy integration with popular HTML editors from Microsoft, Allaire, and Macromedia, and a pop-up window on the desktop that displays instantaneous site traffic activity.

"Who wants partial information?" said SiteGauge's director of marketing, Aaron Maas. "What is useful is knowing how many unique individuals visit your Web site, which pages they visit, where they click from and when on an hourly, daily, weekly and monthly basis."

The free SiteGauge service requires placement of a button-sized logo on the pages, while SiteGauge Pro is a paid-for service which requires no such advertising.

The vendor plans several other projects in a new marketing campaign, including a partner program with rewards for sites that recommend SiteGauge as a useful resource for Web publishers.
