Is it possible to get the analytics of hits to a website via Instagram without having access to the clients website or their google analytics? Any suggestions?
No. There was somewhere a website guessing daily visitors to websites based on how much visits the users of some browser plugin made to websites. But when I compared stats of my own websites with their numbers they were usually 100% off. And for sure no way to track visitors coming from a specific source.
If your client has a goo.gl shorten link in bio you can see the stats.
So their original website link but then Google shortened ?
I didn’t know this. Every day something new to learn…
And if stats are public that is enough reason not to use them.
Yeah just add + at the end.
You can see the stats. You don’t need any access.
Thanks worked it out - I wonder if you use one of these google short links its less likely for someone on instagram to click it though
Before i was using the domain.com
Why? I get many clicks💪
Bitly/goo.gl many people use this.
It’s better then .info/.pro/.xyz cheap domains if you ask me.
Btw instagram owner / goo.gl owner is the same. Doesn’t matter👍
Same with bit.ly links. Just add a plus sign (+) in the end of the URL and it will show the stats instead of redirecting.
An alternative might be to use a host your own shortener script like Yourls on your clients site or for your client, where you can in private create links & view stat for any link you create.
