There Is A Wonderful New Feature to Active Rain!!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with McKinney Realty Group

There is a wonderful new feature on Active Rain!

I am not sure if you all saw the blog that was put out this past week from Active Rain but you can read it Active Rain Short URL’s.

Home

What I wanted to bring to your attention after this change is in your “Statistics” area.  If you are unsure where this is go to your “home” page and in the left column click on “statistics” then you will see all of your blogs with how many comment’s, click’s & view’s.  The next category “short URL’s” is NEW!!

Statistics

When I read the blog about using short URL’s I was not quite as excited as I am now that I know that I can look here and see how many times someone clicked on it!! I am all about statistics and seeing where I am doing the best with my blogging.... Now I want to paste the web with my short URL’s!!

I hope you are as excited about this change as I am.... Look out Twitter here I come!!!

Hi Melissa -  I saw the original post about the short url but didn't think much about it until I checked out my statistics area.   Good to reinforce and then reinforce the idea again.

Melissa, Saw the original post and noticed it in the statistics area.  Don't activerain posts get tweeted automatically for you if you choose the option in settings?  Why would you be tweeting yourself?  Is there something I'm missing here?

This is cool. Thanks for mentioning it. I glanced at the stats area few days ago, said "what's this?" and promptly forgot to investigate!

Thanks for reminding us of this info.

BTW, the automatic Tweet feature has been broken for some time. I put in a trouble ticket and was told that Twitter made some changes that AR does not support (or maybe the other way around).  

As a result, it is important if you want a Twitter presence that you do it manually.

thanks for the tip. Just because someone didn't post a comment doesn't mean they didn't view the post. The stat page made me realize that. Best of luck in 2011!

As a "newbie" of a few months, I found this  feature and found it interesting to see that there were a number of members reading my posts, but not commenting!  Still learning the "in's and out's" of AR. So much to learn and all the help and support right here at AR!

I've been using it since you pointed it out.  Works great.  I still have to remembrer to generate the short URL and use it to post the links when I do so. 

Love Active Rain and the learning.
