Site Sounds Website Visitor Notification is a fun and useful program used to audibly and visually monitor the traffic on your website. Site Sounds consists of a small program that sits in your system tray, listening for incoming connections on the port your specify. You place one line of HTML code in the offsite pages you want to be monitored. When a visitor views those pages, the program plays a sound of your choosing to alert you. A small, pop-up window can also be made to appear at the bottom of your screen as a visual form of notification. The date, IP of the visitor and the URL of the page visited are logged into a list box on the program screen in real time.
Further, an option of the program allows the user to assign a unique sound (.wav) to any web page. This gives the user the ability to audibly, and in real time, track the visitor as he moves through his website by the sounds that are played. The user could even record his own voice to identify certain pages, and the program will play back the unique voice recordings each time a visitor enters those pages.
A webmaster may use Site Sounds simply to get an idea how his website is performing on a certain day without having to open server logs or go to his web statistics service. He might also use Site Sounds to give real time aural or visual indication of the time and frequency visitors go to a few key pages, such as a signup page, payment page, or confirmation page for a product he sells. Webmasters with more than one website can assign these sounds or visual cues to indicate the traffic on each site independently.
The program is also a lot of fun! Sitting in the home or office and "hearing" the traffic as it occurs on your website is like being a shopkeeper and hearing each customer enter the store when that jungle sounds. It gives you a more personal connection to your website visitors.
