More than a few people have emailed regarding my recent metrics post, asking how they can make use of the platform and track their own stats.
Currently, I track usage on the following services:
The current APIs allow you to track the following attributes:
- Number of views
- Number of comments
- Number of times favorited
- Number of ratings
- Average rating value
As shown in the table below, some services (e.g. Revver) only provide a subset of the above attributes
The plan is to add additional services (MetaCafe, Google Video) - if you have a favorite, let me know.
Part Two of this post will detail the APIs and how to use them. Also, I'll probably do a future post looking at the APIs (or lack thereof) for each service that is incorporated. What I've seen so far is wide-ranging, from great to not-so-great.
