TechCrunch recently featured Blogbeat, a nice-looking blog analytics solution, a’la Measuremap. I have doubts regarding their business model: after 30 days trial, $6 month. That’s not a huge sum in itself, but when a pro-level blog platform (TypePad, Blogware ..etc) costs $8–11 a month, an add-on to it for $6 is relatively expensive.
That said, I wanted to give it a try. It’s way off. This morning it showed 70 less visitors then StatCounter, but I thought it may be caused by time zone differences (the new calendar day starting at different hours). However, by the afternoon the gap between the two systems grew to 115, so BlogBeat is definitely missing a few “beats”.
