GoSquared was created to improve the way website owners and managers monitor traffic. The application focuses on making the process entertaining and informative. Rather than producing a few bland stats, GoSquared presents the details in a user friendly format. Not only does this make reviewing traffic statistics much more interesting, but it also reduces the amount of tie needed to comprehend the information. Users can view referral traffic, search engine traffic and other types of traffic to gain a better perspective on how their websites are doing and what is bringing in the most visitors. GoSquared also offers users LiveStats, a feature that gives the user real time updates as they happen.Show more screenshots »
GoSquared was founded by James Taylor, James Gill and Geoff Wagstaff in February of 2006. Based out of London, the team remains rather small consisting of fewer than five individuals, including CEO Gill, Developer Wagstaff and Engineer Taylor. The application focuses on many popular traffic sources, including Twitter, Digg, and Google.
GoSquared does many of the same things that other website monitoring applications can do. The difference is primarily in presentation. The application offers a Live Stat feature that produces the information in real time. Users can also quickly gather information from GoSquared’s attractive design. The application gives users valuable information that can help them come up with an effective marketing plan for their website.
GoSquared manages to combine its own unique personality with a very organized, professional atmosphere. Businesses can feel comfortable using GoSquared, which offers a great deal of information in a neat, clean format. There is no clutter on the website and the application includes stylish graphics and other design elements to give the user an overall positive experience.
New users can join GoSquared by clicking on the silver “Sign Up” button at the top, right hand corner of the homepage. On the following page, the user can select their membership plan.

After filling out the form, the user can click the blue “Create my Account” button at the bottom to complete the process.
