Slickstream has been updated for all customers today. These changes should have no effect on existing customers -- at least until they choose to take advantage of these new capabilities.
News and Updates
It's a big week here at Slickstream; we officially launched out of beta one year ago!
It's been a heck of a year filled with rapid growth, and we're so appreciative to all the customers, trialists, third parties and advocates that made it such a success.
Since Slickstream went live a year ago, we've been growing quickly. Last October we managed a handful of websites, indexed a few thousand webpages daily, and processed a few hundred gigabytes of traffic per month. Now we are handling more than 600 websites, indexing more than half a million webpages in real-time, and over the past month have processed more than 30 terabytes of traffic.
If you use advertising on your site to generate revenue, then you may have heard horror stories about what will happen when Google starts to block third-party cookies on Chrome -- currently slated for sometime in 2022.
Here at Slickstream, we field a lot of questions from customers, trialists, and interested publishers about our technical processes and how we affect the websites we're on. This is, of course, totally reasonable! The performance of your site is paramount, and you need to be confident in the reliability of any new component you're adding to it.
We have an exciting announcement today: Slickstream Stories are officially launching into beta!
We were thrilled to get a chance to talk to the folks at MarketMuse's Content Strategy Collective a few weeks back in an hour-long "Ask Me Anything" session. Our CEO Kingston Duffie and I chatted with content professionals at length about a variety of pressing topics surrounding engagement, publishing and more.
We're excited to announce that Slickstream is fully compatible with Shopify and other e-commerce solutions, and can integrate recommendations across multiple platforms.
As Slickstream's marketing person, I never get tired of talking about on-site engagement and the data behind it. Honestly it's the best part of the job!
So you can imagine how thrilled I was to feature in the latest episode of the Chopped Podcast with Marly McMillen. She runs the Chopped Academy, which features a variety of resources for bloggers, and her own blog Namely Marly.
Slickstream is being updated starting today for some sites, rolling out to others within the next few days.
