+1 – thanks! Ach, it’s that time of year again, isn’t it?
Welcome to the jungle!
Hey Juan, this is a bit old so you may have gotten in by now, but just in case…
In order to use Google Analytics you need to have an account with google, e.g. a gmail account. From there, you should be able to go to analytics.google.com, create a new account and get the tracking ID, and then paste it into your user settings on AJ. It sounds like you’ve already done that part, so going forward you should start seeing information tracking into your analytics account.
Google Analytics doesn’t report historical information real time, so it will be at least 24 hours before you see results come in for some of the graphs, and then these will be refreshed every day or so. Even then, the data really isn’t that useful until you’ve let it run for a while so you can see some trends. Also, not every metric is tracked by Envato so you’ll find that though Analytics has a ton of options, some of them won’t show any data.
However, you can see some things happening in real time – go to analytics.google.com, log in, navigate to your account > All Web Site Data, and click on Real Time under Standard Reports, and then Overview. For instance, I have one visitor currently, in Ft Bragg, California
Anyway, the best way to learn is to click around and see where you get results. There are a lot of metrics up there and the interface is kind of confusing. I still need to spend some time in it to understand what it all means – perhaps there is somebody out there with more knowledge who can give us a tutorial
Awesome work, Mike! Looks like putting your nose to the grindstone over the last few months has paid off, and especially so considering this is typically a slow time for a lot of people. Best of luck on the next 200 and beyond!
Yay – that’s great news! Huge congratulations on the Elite milestone!
Serious question: If I delete an item with a lower rating will it bring my overall rating up or will those ratings still remain in effect?
I did this a long time ago (probably 3 years) on a different profile, and it didn’t have an effect on the overall rating. I don’t know what the system is like now. I wouldn’t remove the file just for this purpose, especially if you don’t think it deserved the lousy rating.
I do know that if you get a sales reversal it also appears to remove the rating. On my exclusive profile I received a reversal, and noticed subsequently I went from 22 ratings back down to 21.
Congratulations! It may not be as long as it now seems to get to that next milestone
I don’t know the exact statement of course, but maybe the spirit of it was to not use superfluous keywords just to pack it out to 30, since that might lead to appearing in searches that don’t relate to the track and just annoy the buyer. But I doubt that it’s advisable to arbitrarily use fewer keywords, if there are more that can specifically describe the music or feeling.
Mat, you are absolutely right. I did measure the distance to the mics when starting, but the guitar can move while you play, or the performance can be different, etc. Also, the uploads were uncompressed, but Soundcloud did mush them for sure. Though the fact that you can hear the difference even through that I thought was significant.
I did try to normalize, but you’re right – because they’re two different signals I had to sort of manually tweak them and use a best guess.
Okay, I should be able to do a single recording and then pass it through the line input like you said. I’m curious as well, and actually I may be able to add MOTU converters in as well if I get motivated to take them back out of the box . I’ll keep you posted…
BTW I don’t mean to bash RME at all – I have the UCX and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Oh, and thanks for the compliments (though I can always hear every single mistake I make in my performances :)).
