I wrote a hack that gathers data about Alexa toolbar users traffic to your Web property on a daily basis. Alexa collects subdomain information as well as property rankings, and I grabbed it all. The information is then saved to an RSS feed.
After speaking with Tim O’Reilly at Gnomedex I had a pretty good understanding of some of his frustrations with usage data. So I am hoping O’Reilly & Associates can use my code internally and also sell more books.
I wrote a total of 5 classes, which is too large to stick in the book. So the entire source code will be on the O’Reilly Web site for everyone to play with.
