Registered Applications And Better Click Referrer Data
We’ve been working with a few partners to provide deeper data in the Referrer tables on our Info Pages. Right now, there’s a single bucket grouping together all clicks with no referrer data under Direct Traffic. Inluded here are all clicks from mail applications like Outlook, Twitter clients like Tweetdeck, RSS readers, IM clients like Adium, iPhone apps like Tweetie, and all other desktop, iPhone, Blackberry, and Android applications.
Because so many clicks come from applications outside the browser with no referrer data, we’ve start a program for app developers to Register with bit.ly to clack their clicks. Our first partner to go live with Registered Application Click Tracking is Tweetdeck, starting with the latest version released today ( http://bit.ly/4tpjs6 ).
We’re very excited about this new program, because we think it will provide much deeper insight into how people are consuming your content. If you’re interested in becoming a Registered Application with Bit.ly, please fill out this form:
