Link Tracking :

This is where the web analytics start. In most cases, when bloggers opine about their new favorites, they lay down a hyperlink. To begin with, we're going to find all of those, and map out your buzz index in the present. Over time, this is going to be one of our primary evaluative metrics for determining your web popularity. Simple, but amazingly effective. We'll also be able to show you how the major search engines (Google, MSN, Yahoo!) are interpreting this sea of links, how they’re giving you credit for them, and how you can use this to your advantage and increase your findability.

Link tracking, in combination with other web analytic methods, will help us to further spec out your overall audience size. We'll look at what promotions have been particularly effective, what write-ups are getting you listens, and what radio channels are actually getting you new fans. We can even make informed predictions on where you will have the biggest audience, which can help you plan successful, profitable tours and sell lots of merch.

Isn't the internet sweet? We think so.

Your friends at Tough Customer have worked on both the giving and receiving ends of that equation.
