…. this just in…. there are rumors flying around that Adaptive Path is going to spin out its blog measurement service Measure Maps. …. hot tip… going to Google? Confirmed… it is with Google. Jeff Veen has posted on the Google blog about the deal.

I had known that something was in the works for a while but only now can say this. Five folks from Adaptive Path are now joining the Borg. Hopefully, Google’s resources will improve the performance of MM because till recently it has sucked wind and shows all sorts of weird data. Discounted that because of alpha status, but now I would expect them to improve. tracking my readers.

Update: Sucks Wind= Slow. Not bad service so as to not cause confusion. Also, just noticed Google is damn selective in its link back policy. My trackback did not show up. What’s up with that!

  2. Yeah, I got tired of Measure Maps after a couple months of testing it out. Nice interface, but not enough information so I went back to StatCounter. Hopefully they’ll merge Measure Map’s interface with Google Analytics and create a better product.

  3. [...] The rumors were true – Google has snapped up MeasureMap, the excellent and beautifully designed blog analytics tool.

Still, an interesting acquisition – I’d love to see this bolted on to Blogger or becoming part of Google Analytics. This entry was posted on Tuesday, February 14th, 2006 at 5:25 pm.

  4. [...] But for me, that’s where it stopped. I found it hard to really grok all the info that they surfaced and I simply stopped using it except for the occasional check in after Jeremy or Dave linked to me. They promised that they would make this data meaningful to bloggers, but from where I stand, I can’t see it. Om said it “sucks wind” – its really not bad, its just kinda “ok”. [...]

  5. Out of alpha, since we all know what happens to google apps – perpetual beta, of course!

  6. Well, it may be that Google doesn’t show your trackback, but you’re not showing mine, even though Google is. What’s up with that? :)

  7. Maybe others than the A-list bloggers can use Measure Map soon? It has been “coming soon” almost as long as Windows Vista…

  8. Google buys AdaptivePath’s MeasureMap

    That’s the thing when you are sick and go to bed way too early – you don’t get the interesting late-night news (in German time that is). Anyway – it has been announced officially over at the google blog that big G has purchased adaptive path’s measu…

  10. I belive the measure map integration causes one of the biggest threats to privacy ever seen on the web.

    Why? Because your blog tells about you everything Google didn’t know yet.
