March 24, 2010 – As anyone who’s gone through a CMS conversion knows, things can slip through the cracks. When we migrated to a new CMS platform last year, we inadvertently omitted tracking codes for one of the components on our site – the Financials section. Since I wasn’t aware of that, I assumed that this section was the least viewed element on infostor.com because it never showed up in our site analytics.
However, we recently realized the mistake, added the tracking code and, much to my surprise, the Financials section is one of the most popular sections on infostor.com. In fact, it sometimes gets more page views than our News Analysis, Featured Articles or blog components.
Its popularity may be due to the fact that in addition to all the information you’d expect to find on a financials page (stock quotes, history, etc.), the section also includes a wealth of content related to specific storage vendors, including press releases, news stories, blogs, podcasts and conference call alerts and archives.
You can also track the storage market via the InfoStor Market Index.
If you haven’t been using the Financials section of our site (which is located in the bottom right corner of the home page) click here and enter the symbol of a storage vendor. Try EMC (and check out the news stories on Joe Tucci’s salary) or NTAP (and note that NetApp’s stock is trading at close to its 52-week high).
