HitsLink is a new online tracking service targeted at collecting information about web site access and traffic statistics, in the same category of HitBox, Superstats, Extreme-DM, WebTrends Live and many others.

*Private Label Service*

Hitslink breaks new grounds and is possibly the most interesting among the above tracking services because as it provides new and valuable statistics and because it provides the opportunity to easily resell the service under your own private label to other companies. The nice feature in this respect, is that Hitslink allows you to create your own sub-accounts and to grant access to your own specific staff or clients to different web traffic statistics, while you pay one consolidated bill. This is an effective approach which allows many small companies and entrepreneurs to resell a quality traffic monitoring service at a competitive price and with competitive features.

It is also possible to brand the your online Hitslink service account with your own company name, logo, header, footers, and even your own domain name. What you get is a service very similar to Hitbox completely branded with your company name and information. All pages and statistics are automatically laid out and updated for you and for your clients automatically. You need to do absolutely nothing.

After that your clients can log in and enjoy all of the well designed charts and diagrams showing detailed statistics ranging from the type of browsers used by your web site visitors, to how many visitors arrived from a particular search engine and what query have they used.

Providing your own company branded Live Tracker and Traffic Monitoring and Analysis service is a great way to provide an additional service to your clients, not to mention generating additional revenue for your business. What in fact is the breakthrough in this service, it is not so much the specific technology or information returned, which by itself are certainly very good, but their highly effective viral, win-win marketing approach. By making every single customer a possible marketer, with ample margins of profit, Hitslink has paved its sales for a prosperous and long future.

From what I have calculated, even if you bill the resale of this service at the same price that Hitslink charges, you still make a very interesting margin since Hitslink bills you as a "consolidated account". That means that all the traffic monitoring you resell is consolidated under your account.

For example, just about every traffic service is billed according to different in price tiers, including HitsLink.
Let's say your service billed $19.95/month for 1,000 to 25,000 hits. If you had five clients doing 5,000 hits per month each on average, you would be billing them $19.95 * 5, or $99.75 per month total. However, you would only be paying the Hitslink service $19.95/month for the total of 25,000 page views you have consolidated under your account.

So, while you are providing your clients with rates very competitive to just about anything else they might find, your cost is still just a fraction of what you are billing them under most scenarios.

For more information on the new Private Label service see:

The customer support of Hitslink seems acceptable and all the technical support is handled by responding to e-mail questions via a generic sounding e-mail address.

Hitslink charges a one-time USD $99 setup fee for the Private Label service on their site.

General pricing to access their traffic monitoring service range from USD $ 9.95/month for up to 1000 page views per month, to a maximum of $ 99.95/month for 100,000 to 200,000 page views. As of today this very site
( would pay $ 29.95/month to monitor its near 25,000 page views per month.

Here is the detailed price rundown for the Hitslink Traffic Monitoring service:

Page views/month Price
0 - 1,000 $ 9.95
1,001 - 10,000 $19.95
10,001 - 25,000 $29.95
25,001 - 50,000 $39.95
50,001 - 75,000 $49.95
75,001 - 100,000 $59.95
100,001 - 200,000 $99.95

Hitslink's rates are less expensive than competing services like HitBox or WebTrends Live.

*Other features*

Hitslink offers also e-mail alerts, something that I find quite useful and missing from the competition. As competing services in this category Hitslink requires only to install a short Javascript code onto your Web site pages before it can effectively start doing its job.

Among other unique features offered by Hitslink is the impressive "Advanced Charts" mode, which allows the user to see a Microsft-like toolbar on top of each graph, that provides the freedom to change and select the type of graph type utilized, and to fully customize the colours and looks of each and every graph displayed.

Styles and looks can be saved and later called back and applied to new charts.

The navigation reporting feature is also quite valuable as it reports on statistics relating to what users have done after having visited a selected web page.
