mixmap tracker not working properly?

mixmap made an announcement on their website (below):

MixMap.com Announcements-MySpace change prevents trackers from working in private profile headline -- 2/25/09

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have a private myspace profile and your tracker code is now showing in your headline and your visitors aren't

benig tracked, this is because MySpace recently made a change to the way their site is working. If you have a private

MySpace profile, you won't be able to track all of your visitors until myspace makes a change on this. However, you can

put the tracking code somewhere else in your profile and it will work. But it will only track visitors who are your friends.

The other solution is to make your profile public and the code will be hidden again. I'm not sure why this is only affecting

private profiles, but that seems to the case. Sorry for the inconvenience.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

my myspace profile is public, i do not block my own ip address using the mixmap tracker, i use the tracking method

number 4B (after reading the message above, recently i pasted the code into the 'about me' section of my profile),

i used 'get a new tracking code' feature to see if (maybe) that would fix the problem. i have never switched between

or used MySpace 2.0

 

THE PROBLEM: for the past month or so my mixmap only tracks me and a few other people, but primarily it only tracks me.

MY QUESTION: has anyone else been having an issue similar to mine or know what's going on?

Re: mixmap tracker not working properly?

 If you put your invisible tracker in your headline and switch to 2.0, your tracker should still pick up visitors if your profile is private - you have to choose to show your headline instead of your status. Doing this, your status will still be shown on myspace mobile.

The way you've described your set up, if you're still getting hits on mixmap, just not ones that you're expecting to see, then perhaps the visits have stopped or are being made behind Adblock Plus (I originally said "or via myspace mobile" here but that would be related to something else. sry).

Re: mixmap tracker not working properly?

thank you!!! i have to choose to show my headline instead of my status?

i can not find where to change that feature. i do see it (my headline) as being visible.

if you could tell me where i need to go to adjust or verify that setting, i would appreciate it! :-)

again...thank you!!! hopefully i will get this fixed. and yes, i was thinking that visits were

being made behind adblock plus or something, but it was strange they way the tracker hits

literally POOFED and were gone almost overnight. hmmm?

 

almost forgot to mention; i have a low-ball 'map loco' that has been picking up all the hits that

the mixmap has not been able to track.

 Yes, if you switch to 2.0 you have to choose between your headline and your status/mood. In Customize Profile, point at the top of the Basic Information Module. Click the Settings option (Wrench & Screwdriver Icon). In the "Show" picklist, choose Headline.

Each module lets you adjust settings this same way. Seems the privacy options are working better now on 2.0 than they were at first but I'd verify that with some of the other folks around here.

I've had trackers display different results before. Occasionally, one would have something that another apparently missed. Maybe server trouble or something. And, I've played with my ABP on a few occasions to allow maploco or something low ball (I like your term) to pick me up while still blocking the good trackers. hehe. It could be someone playing with you like that (swear it's not me! lol). I deleted my myspace around a week ago (quite a relief, really) but I popped into my daughter's to get you the steps above. Hope this helps.

 



I only use my powers for good - 95% of the time anyway

So I came back over here after not having logged in for forever just to see if anyone else was having this same problem... apparently I have my answer lol!

I've had like 5 views for all of April. My mixmap used to show 1 to 2 pages of views on a regular day? My profile is not private, it's public, and I use 1.0. I even tried creating a new tracker code... nothing!

Mixmap is not tracking for me.
It tracks only my visits.
I have never used 2.0 and have always remained on 1.0
My profile is also not private.

It's not working for me either. My profile isn't private, 1.0, tried re-adding the code, but still nothing.

WELL! I guess it's time to move on to a tracker that works. That stinks. :( I've been using mixmap for over a year, I've named countless visitors & stalkers... and now nothing!

I dont Know If Anyone Fix this Problem already but i was having the same issue up until 3 weeks ago then i came up with a thought, clearly myspace changed names when they came up with 2.0 so what i did was just change the name on the tracker code so that anywhere it says myspace in the code it now says Myspace 2.0

Example of Hidden Tracker link: href="http://www.mixmap.com/" target="_new" title="MySpace Tracker">
MySpace Tracker

Change to : href="http://www.mixmap.com/" target="_new" title="MySpace 2.0 Tracker">
MySpace 2.0 Tracker

and it's been working great for me maybe you guys should try it. So I Guess I Fixed A MixMap Issue LOL Yay Me
