AddThis brings interesting news for monitoring shared content

Many of us are already used to meeting and even using the services of AddThis, a useful tool for the social web that allows us to make it easier for visitors to our websites to spread our content, allowing us to track the traffic that it generates. Well, AddThis continues to improve and innovate and recently we have a series of characteristics that we are going to tell you about: Address Bar Sharing Analytics is the first novelty of AddThis that allows us to monitor the behavior of users before a URL shared by different means, such as email, messaging or social networks. It depends on the History API, which is currently found in the Firefox 4 and Safari 5 browsers, and according to its website, there is a bug in Chrome that cannot be used, and it consists of inserting a tag to the URL to share with automatically generated value that identifies each page. They ensure that URL tagging does not affect SEO. New Live View admin panel, which, as we can imagine from the name, is precisely the panel where we can see in real time the behavior of users, both of shared and clicked content, even in a geolocated way. And of course, from AddThis also allows the monitoring of the behaviors carried out by users through the social buttons, focused for now on the buttons of Facebook Like, Twitter, and the most recent, Google +1. Without a doubt AddThis goes far beyond what users can imagine, allowing website owners at all times the behavior of their visitors, thus becoming a powerful web analytics tool to take into account.
