I've made a few tweaks to Nuketown's information gathering capabilities, updating a newer verison of the Google Analytics module for Drupal that includes the ability to track downloads and monitor Drupal search terms. I've also added the FeedBurner module and redirected the primary feed and the podcast feed to FeedBurner.
The upgrades should be transparent to everyone; the old feeds automatically forward to the new FeedBurner ones, so no one should have to resubscribe to anything (or so say my tests with iTunes and the Radio Active feed earlier today).
The ultimate goal here is to get a better grip on download numbers for Radio Active. Analog, Dreamhost's stat crunching program, tells me that Nuketown averages about 8,500 MP3 download requests a month. That seems crazy high to me, and I have no way of knowing how many of those requests failed, and how many successfully completed.
It did raise my curiosity however.
Thus, the new FeedBurner and Google Analytics modules, both of which should tell me more about what's really going on. I've also changed Nuketown's access.log from a 3-day log to a 30-day one, and with all three tools at my disposal I should be able to get a better idea of what Radio Active's audience really is.
