the world without altgate

Altgate

@altgate Startups, Venture Capital & Everything In Between Skip to content Home Furqan Nazeeri (fn@altgate.com) ← Microsoft Buys 37signals For $300 Million The Coming Venture Capital Boom → The World Without Altgate Posted on January 1, 2009 by fnazeeri No, this blog is not going anywhere.  I was just looking at the 2008 Google Analytics data for Altgate.  It is an amazing tool.  I wish I had installed it when I first created this blog, but alas I didn't so I only have data starting in February of last year.  It's mildly disturbing that Google gets to keep all of that data, but I suppose it's a fair trade since the service is free. Overall, 2008 was a great year of growth in traffic.  At the beginning of the year, there were just about 500 unique visitors per month and by December that grew to nearly 10K.  There was a similar growth in terms of RSS subscribers, finishing with about 750 (although Feedburner "lost" about 400 of them this morning which I assume will be "found" tomorrow). One metric that jumped out at me is the global reach.  I was amazed to discover that of some 200-ish countries in the world, there has been at least one visit from each except for just 77.  Sure most of the traffic was from the US (about 73% of total unique visits) but there was also traffic from all kinds of places like India (2.3%), Germany (1.5%), Australia (1.4%), Slovenia (0.7%, who knew!) and Israel (0.6%).  Below is the complete map of the countries still without a visitor to Altgate…if you know someone there send them a referral!  I'll update you all when I get the list of those without Altgate down to a dozen or so.   Afganistan Haiti Rwanda Barbados Honduras Saint Kitts and Nevis Benin   Iraq Saint Lucia Bhutan Kazakhstan Samoa   Bosnia & Herzegovina Kiribati   San Marino Burkina Faso Korea, North Seychelles Burundi   (Urundi) Kyrgyzstan             Sierra Leone Cameroon Laos           Solomon Islands Cape Verde Islands Lesotho   Somalia Central African Republic Liberia Sudan Chad Liechtenstein Suriname    Comoros Maldives Swaziland Côte d'Ivoire Mali Tajikistan Dem. Rep. of Congo Marshall Islands The Gambia Djibouti Mauritania Timor-Leste Dominica Mongolia, Rep. Togo El Salvador Montenegro Tonga (Nukualofa) Equatorial Guinea   Mozambique Turkmenistan Eritrea Myanmar (Burma) Tuvalu Micronesia Namibia Uzbekistan Fiji Nauru Vanuatu   Gabon Niger Vatican City Georgia Palau, Republic of Yemen Guinea   Papua New Guinea Zambia   Guinea–Bissau Paraguay Zimbabwe   Guyana   Republic of Congo Lastly, something that Google Analytics doesn't do is allow you to see where visitors are going when they leave your site.  You can see which page they left from but not where they went.  This feature is rumored to be in development but I couldn't get it even with the custom reporting.  Anyone have tips on this?

6 Gorgeous Wordpress Themes for Small Business Sites

ReadWriteBiz ReadWriteWeb Channels ReadWriteStart ReadWriteBiz ReadWriteEnterprise ReadWriteCloud ReadWriteHack ReadWriteMobile International ReadWriteBrazil ReadWriteChina ReadWriteFrance ReadWriteSpain ReadWriteBiz All Posts Archives Featured Yola.com RSS Twitter Facebook 6 Gorgeous Wordpress Themes for Small Business Sites By John Paul Titlow / October 4, 2010 7:30 PM / 27 Comments Tweet Our Channel ReadWriteBiz, sponsored by Yola.com , is a resource and guide for small businesses. Yola.com is an award winning website builder that makes it easy for small businesses to create a website. With Yolas professional templates and easy-to-use tools, you can make a website that helps you stand out from the competition. Wordpress may have begun life as a blogging tool, but the open source publishing platform has evolved into something resembling a full-fledged CMS in recent years, especially with the release of Wordpress 3.0 in June. In fact, it can easily be used to manage a Website for products and businesses, without or without a blog. While we certainly recommend that any small business maintain a blog , it doesnt have to be the main focus of your companys Wordpress-based Website, thanks to the multitude of themes that are designed with products and businesses in mind. There are a staggering number of Wordpress themes available for download, and sifting through them all could take up an entire afternoon. Weve taken the pain out of the process for you by finding six of the best business-oriented Wordpress themes. Please note that while most Wordpress themes are free to use, the ones listed here are premium themes that will cost you a few dollars apiece. While free is always nice (and there are plenty of free Wordpress themes worth using), premium themes tend to be higher in quality and include more advanced features than free themes. For business owners, site design and functionality can be critical to success and thus is one area worth investing in. My Product My Product is a very clean, well-designed theme intended for the promotion of a companys products and services. It comes with five different color schemes and the original Photoshop PSD file in case you want to modify the original graphics. It supports all major browsers (even Netscape!) and can be easily and extensively customized from within the Wordpress admin. The homepage design features an elegant tabbed interface alongside an auto-rotating graphic above the fold, enabling you to include a lot of information without cluttering up the page. » Read more details. » View a live demo. Price: Requires a $39/year subscription at ElegantThemes.com TheCorporation Much like the My Product theme, TheCorporation is a slick, nicely-designed theme with a focus on promoting products and services. Instead of being blog-centric, it focuses heavily on the use of static pages in Wordpress (rather than posts). The jQuery-driven homepage widget enables you to include all of the pertinent information on one page without cluttering it up. Companies can include snippets of their "About Us", "Mission Statement" and "Testimonials" pages here, which users can flip through and then click the "read more" button to delve deeper. This theme too comes with several different color schemes to choose from and the original PSD files. » Read more details. » View a live demo. Price: Requires a $39/year subscription at ElegantThemes.com Minimal This theme is quite similar in concept and layout to the previous two, but its by far the cleanest design. As its name would suggest, Minimal is very simple. It too has an auto-rotating slider box for featured information on the homepage, and a nice, jQuery-powered drop-down navigation. Again, its a page-heavy architecture (rather than focusing on blog posts), with a corporate blog almost tacked on as an afterthought. Like the others, its cross-browser friendly and was built using valid XHTML and CSS. It comes with the source PSD files and two color schemes. » Read more details. » View a live demo. Price: Requires a $39/year subscription at ElegantThemes.com BusinessCard Moving away from the more conventional product-based business site layout, BusinessCard offers a user interface that is the epitome of simplicity and cleanliness. Its a two-column layout that features a semi-animated navigation on the left and a small content block on the right. The entire site UI is contained within a rectangular space about 785 pixels wide and 420 pixels high, and the entire experience of clicking through it is animated using JavaScript (once again, the jQuery framework). It feels like a Flash-based site, but its not. Unlike the other themes included here, BusinessCard does not include a blog at all. Its intended for static pages and a portfolio of work, making it ideal for sole proprietorships or small design shops. » Read more details. » View a live demo. Price: Requires a $39/year subscription at ElegantThemes.com Coffee Break CoffeeBreak is another attractive, simple theme with the standard slider-based homepage and page-centric architecture, although a blog is included. It comes with 17 stylesheet options and takes advantage of the new custom post types found in Wordpress 3.0. It comes from Woo Themes, which offers tiered pricing: $70 for the Standard package, which includes the theme, lifetime support and updates, or $150 for the Developer package, which includes extra bonus themes and the original PSD file. » Read more details. » View a live demo. Price: $70 (Standard) or $150 (Developer). Monthly subscriptions are also available. SeaLight Sealight is a shiny, gradient-heavy theme that lets companies showcase products and key information in the homepage slider box while also prominently maintaining a company blog. It gives emphasis to recent tweets and RSS and Twitter subscription options for users. It comes with five color schemes and a host of fancy controls for the back-end admin of Wordpress. » Read more details. » View a live demo. Price: $70 (Standard) or $150 (Developer). Monthly subscriptions are also available.

And i really dont like themes where you have to pay, i could easily get them for free, even if not so "hyp" or terribly brilliant. Ive always enjoyed free cool themes on my personal blogs, whatever it was wordpress, blogspot, joomla, but now im enjoying my blog at www.pipeno.com where i get all the freedom i need, in terms of theme personalization and versatility Cheers, Alexander Posted by: Alexander Velazquez | October 5, 2010 3:46 AM This post looks like a press release or something, but hey, Im loving the first style on the list.

Especially if I can find a better theme than the one I have on my blog. This is a great collection, some of which I havent seen before. Terry Posted by: Terry Dunn | October 5, 2010 1:21 PM Thanks for the info! Im going to go with Cubuit [link] Cheers Posted by: Chris | October 5, 2010 10:37 PM Seriously.if that wasnt a paid post, I dont know what us! Redeem yourself and write a post with atleast half of the themes free and the paid ones from a variety of sources. Posted by: jmartens | October 6, 2010 12:19 AM Paid or not paid -- its been a successful article from a social perspective. In my mind, that makes it a good post. Posted by: kkouf | October 6, 2010 7:27 AM Good stuff, this is definitely something we could pass on to our small business clients who are looking for relatively cheap, high quality design solutions. Of course free themes are great, but a lot of times our clients are looking for something a little more robust - these definitely meet that need.

Im going to go with Cubuit [link] Cheers Posted by: Chris | October 5, 2010 10:37 PM Seriously.if that wasnt a paid post, I dont know what us! Redeem yourself and write a post with atleast half of the themes free and the paid ones from a variety of sources. Posted by: jmartens | October 6, 2010 12:19 AM Paid or not paid -- its been a successful article from a social perspective. In my mind, that makes it a good post. Posted by: kkouf | October 6, 2010 7:27 AM Good stuff, this is definitely something we could pass on to our small business clients who are looking for relatively cheap, high quality design solutions. Of course free themes are great, but a lot of times our clients are looking for something a little more robust - these definitely meet that need.
