You’ve been waiting for it, and it’s finally here. Today, Compete and the compete.com team are excited to announce the unveiling of our new and improved site! Are we fired up? You bet we are! Here’s what we’re saying loud and clear with the brand new compete.com:
We’re changing the game!
Compete continues to take web analytics to new levels with innovative new products — the latest: User Generated Tags for sites. An industry first, we’ve rolled out user generated tags for sites on compete.com, giving you a window into the collective mind of the market.
Helpful Tip:Â As a registered MyCompete member, navigate to the sites that interest you and on the lower right corner of the page, add your tags or vote up community tags. It is that simple – share and benefit from the entire compete.com community.
It’s all about you!
We’ve listened, observed, and even spoken to you on the phone – you are our #1 priority. The new compete.com interface was designed to get you the important data that you need to quickly and easily make decisions.
Helpful Tip:Â Site Analytics is now named Site Profiles! Find detailed data on a single domain or use the Compare Sites report to benchmark across multiple domains. Search Analytics, Referral Analytics and Ranked Lists are all updated as well!
A little sizzle makes the data taste that much better!
Dynamic flash graphs, drill-down date selection, multiple axes, and a smooth new user interface brings Compete’s powerful data to life. We’ve added the ability to look at traffic and engagement data on the same graph, such as unique visitors and pages per visit.
Helpful Tip:Â Compare myspace.com’s UV’s to Pages per Visit. It is a great example of traffic trending downward for MySpace, but visitors looking at more pages per visit — looks like the core audience is hanging around longer than ever.
We love tracking our competitors, and you do too — with our new daily digests (available to Compete PRO subscribers), you can get daily share-based data delivered to your desktop every morning. Just create portfolios of the sites that you want to track, and we’ll deliver a daily update of the most important metrics directly to your inbox.
Helpful Tip:Â If you are a PRO subscriber, run a Site Comparison report. Just below the "Compare" button click on "Add to Portfolio." Once created, make sure that your email preferences for "compete.com Portfolio Digest" are turned on to receive Daily Digests. That’s it!
And we’re just getting started!
2009 is shaping up to be a big year for people who need data to identify opportunities in a tight market, and Compete is breaking down those walls for you. We have already begun working on the next BIG release (which of course you will see first) and it is another doozy.Â In the meantime, we invite you to dig into the new compete.com, and send along any feedback that you have on the new site.
