Well, here’s a plugin that I’ve created that merges 2 great products:
Google Desktop Search and Performancing Metrics
Why would you want to install this plugin for Google Desktop? Well, if you’re anything like me, you might be Statistically Addicted, wanting to monitor how well your blog is doing, all day long. Of course, you don’t even need to be Statistically Addicted. You might just want the functionality that this plugin provides.
First things first, here is some recommended reading for you:
- Blogging Statistics – The what, where, why and who – Read what I think about website statistics, and why you need it…
- Statistically Addicted – Performancing Metrics – Read what I think about the blog statistics tool provided by Performancing.com.
Ok, now on to how to use this plugin.
1 – Ensure you have a Performancing Metrics account, and are currently logging statistics for your blog
2 – Ensure that you have Google Desktop Search installed on your computer
3 – Head on over to the gdPMetrics page and download the install package
4 – After installing gdPMetrics, open the Options dialog, and fill in your login details (for your Performancing) and add your blog’s domain details. For example, on your blog’s Metrics page, it should look something like http://performancing.com/metrics/myblog.com. Your blog domain being “myblog.com”
5 – Click “Ok” and you should be all set.
This is similar to what you should see:
