This is definitely a new one on me, but one of my customers got approached by a company offering a web analytics software service, I quote:
"he was offering a quite comprehensive service whereby you can view the actual company who is viewing your site along with the words they typed into a search engine, email alerts to various things, it seemed a good tool. "
Sounds fair enough the the main concern (the bit I highlighted) sounds a bit risque. What company is viewing your website?? That would probably revolutionise search in a way, but also would lead to an increase in spamming and surely there is some breach of privacy laws in there somewhere??!?
Can anyone shed any light? Does such a software exist where you can target companies rather than IP addresses? Does it work for the average small business or is this just a load of old nonsense by some clueless donkey who has to drum up business by emailing individuals and making outlandish claims??
