It's been three weeks since I started this project, and I've been curious to see how the site is being used, and how many people are visiting... what are they reading...etc. So I started a small little project on the side, called the Traffic Tracker.
Traffic Tracker is a desktop utility that instantly shows who's surfing your site at the current moment, and what pages are they reading. The utility utilizes a web service written in ASP.NET and a log file kept by the web application for the site visitors (See this article: How to track visitors to your site in ASP.NET & C#)
The utility even sounds a "click" each time a visitor clicks on a link on the site. It has been really geeky setting next to the computer hearing it clicks every 5 seconds as people visit the site! But I admit, it felt like I was setting in my site visitor's living room as they click away :-)
Here is a screen shot:
I'm going to add some more features to the utility and probably publish a beta soon.
Wow this would be a really cool app and cant wait for the beta!
