Today in a meeting, I was reminded of the importance of an author’s blog as the foundation of a marketing platform. As the conversation turned to website analytics, specifically Google Analytics, I remembered that I had not restored my new ClustrMaps.com World Map for TheInfinityPlane.com.
Unfortunately, earlier in 2015 ClustrMaps.com had a data crash, which they explained in their “www4 map crash and data recovery March 25, 2015” blog post. Fortunately, I was able to recover my data. But the first 13,596+ visitors to TheInfinityPlane.com will no longer appear on the new world map. The plus+ is the number visitors that occurred during the fitful migration from the evil BlueHost.com to the generally helpful HostGator.com. But as of today, the ClustrMaps.com tracking widget is installed.
The new ClustrMaps.com widget comes in four versions for the free account: Recommended, Minimalist, Advanced, and BBcode Syntax. I have embedded all four below.
[A] Recommended (good for most users)
[B] Minimalist (for MySpace and other sites needing the plainest HTML)
[C] Advanced (for those requiring true W3C XHTML1.1 validation)
[D] BBcode syntax (for BBCode / Wiki / Last.FM and other sites needing it)
