Keep Track of Your iGoogle Gadget

Google launched iGoogle gadget dashboard where developers can manage their gadgets and see detailed analytics about their gadgets' usage. Right now dashboard allows you to see user numbers over time, number of gadget loads in home and canvas view, as well a geographic break down of users.

On this page, you can add gadget of yours by URL – for some, you may need to click on a link in a verification mail – and then see weekly stats, your gadget ratings and more.

Below is a screenshot of the gadget I built for Stuff.co.nz,  you probably notice that the number of users has been dramatically increased in last three days, because the gadget  is amazingly ranking number 1 now if you search for “stuff.co.nz” in iGoogle gadget directory




Note though that the stats only show you how often a gadget is loaded, but that doesn’t mean the gadget is used, too... because it just happens to be loaded when the iGoogle page loads, which may be because the user just wants to perform a search, or make use of a gadget not yours. In that case, when Google calls this “page view” we need not be misled to think of it as a “normal” page view like one that would happen on actual website.
