Hello Bar Stats Now Track Visitors, Not Impressions

Blog / News and Announcements

We get a lot of great feedback from our Hello Bar users and we listen to and consider all of it. One request that we’ve been getting from users is to change the way we track impressions. Prior to today, an impression was the base unit of a Hello Bar view and it was essentially the same as a page view.

As of Wednesday, January 4th, we’ll be tracking your Hello Bar’s views as “visits”. This means that if a visitor arrives at your site and clicks around, it’s only counted as one impression. This should help your stats display more meaningful information as a Hello Bar’s performance will be much easier to visualize. You can think of the bar as tracking people, instead of page views.

How this affects you

This switch means that you will likely see your impressions (now “Visits”) fall and your clickthrough rates go up. In reality, your Hello Bars’ performance won’t be affected by this change – the net result is simply that your reports should be more reflective of the true engagement your Hello Bars are getting.

We hope you’ll welcome this change and above all, we hope it gives you a better view into your Hello Bar’s performance. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to drop us a line at contact@hellobar.com.

I am just starting all of this but it sounds good, thanx!

So how do I ensure that when I’m visiting my site to test new changes, etc, that those impressions are not logged?

Jamie Hamel-SmithFebruary 25th, 2012

Just log into your account and then go here: https://www.hellobar.com/stats-ip-exclusions You can add as many IP Addresses as you want to the exclusion list.

Cool. Thanks Jamie. I’ll try that. By the way I figured out another way… just install Ghostery… I think that works too.

I like this new feature. I just upgraded to the pro version but if I get over 100 clicks, I will upgrade to the next level. Hello Bar is worth it.

Really glad that I saw this. I was just trying to figure out a way to filter myself from the hellobar analytics on my site, http://www.communitycollegetransferstudents.com/ but now it’s not a big deal since my number of impressions don’t effect the stats that heavily. Great move!

I installed it yesterday and I like it a lot. Out of 100 visitors i had 3 clicks. That could be good. But what would be good to know is some useful “call to action” phrases we could use on our Hello bar. Because what the bar says will depend on how many people click it.

Also I’d be interested if you can set up the bar so that any clicks from our own IP address aren’t registered. But then again that probably doesn’t matter – you just don’t click it yourself. :)

Thanks – I like it.

It’s a pity the blog is unpopulated since 2012. I really like and use Hellobar on our website http://www.cpapaustralia.com.au and am especially fond of the inherent a/b testing option. Well done.
