Performancing Metrics No More

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 17 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

With the recent acquisition of Performancing by PayPerPost, I’m removing their code from my site. I think TDavid puts it best:


I’m not crazy about the performancing deal, which doesn’t include the ad network or Firefox add-on, but that’s life when you join a site that someday could be acquired by a different entity. Nick Wilson is calling this “good news” which I guess proves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Besides, between the raw data collected by Apache and processed through Analog, AWStats, and Webalizer. Plus Google Analytics, it’s not like I needed yet another metrics meter anyway.

I also sent an email to them requesting that my account and data be removed:

To Whom It May Concern:

In light of Performancing’s recent acquisition by PayPerPost, I would like to request that my account be terminated immediately and all associated data be removed.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
