Having previously discussed Performancing Metrics as being a little bit of a “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”, I decided to sign up directly with Clicky. I also removed any Performancing affiliate links from the article.
As far as I am currently aware, Clicky, developed by Roxr Software Ltd are not a direct competitor, and thus in my mind them having access to my data is potentially less risk.
Accuracy of Tracking Data
The accuracy of your tracking data is important, thus I am doing a test
Just to give Performancing Metrics a slight advantage, I am going to include their tracking data first in my page.
Clicky does seem to have an edge currently on interface over MyBlogLog, but remember that as I previously wrote, MyBlogLog might well have an API available soon and that historical data is highly valuable if you have been using them for a while.
Also what happens if Clicky gets acquired? I feel more confident in a change over and longevity of the service if it is not being hosted on 3rd party servers.
If Performancing Metrics was just an affiliate white label, and they didn’t have anything to do with my data, I would be much happier to recommend them, but at this stage, Clicky direct gets my vote.
Performancing Metrics and Clicky don’t seem to want to co-exist, thus one of them has to go at least until they improve their scripts so that they truly are different. Maybe there is a problem with shared declaration.
Nothing highly personal, I would just prefer Clicky to have my data rather than Performancing.
