Tracking Statistics Using X.CO
If you have an X.CO account, you can track the effectiveness of your shortened URLs. This powerful tool provides detailed statistics about who is clicking on your URL, from where, and how often.
X.CO provides registered users with a detailed report for each registered URL that shows Total Short Links, Total Clicks, Total Referrers and Total Countries.
To Track X.CO Statistics
- Log in to X.CO using your Go Daddy account user name and password.
- Click Statistics. This lets you see timely information on all your shortened URLs in one spot. You'll see Total Short Links, Total Clicks, Total Referrers and Total Countries. It also shows you the date of each click.
- By clicking on the Stats button for a specific link, you'll get detailed information about that URL for clicks, referrers, hits from Twitter and Facebook, and click via QR code scans.
- To archive URLs, click Archive next to the URL you want to archive.
- To access your archived URLs, click the Archive tab. To move a URL back to the Statistics page, click Restore.
Understanding the General Statistics
- Under Clicks, you can see the number of times your URL has been viewed. The "Since (date)" refers to the total number of clicks since the URL was originally shortened.
- Under Actions, click Share to share your link via Facebook, Twitter, your default email program, Delicious, Digg, or MySpace. Or, click Stats to see all current activity on your URL.
Understanding the Detailed Statistics
- On the bottom of the Statistics page, see Referrers, which indicates the number and source of the click. For example, if someone clicks your shortened link via Twitter.com, Twitter is the referral.
- If you click Locations, it gives you the country, region and city, and the amount of clicks from that area.
- Using the Date links, you can control the time frame in the "click graph." You can choose today, 7 days, 30 days, all time, or you can customize a time.
