Conversion Voodoo Announces Voodoo Alerts, a New Real User Monitoring Tool That Automatically Alerts Web Administrators When Conversions Decrease in Any Sector

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 26, 2014

Every website ever created has inevitably encountered compatibility issues with older browser versions and differing operating systems, among a host of other perplexing errors. A common decision made while developing a website is which browser versions to include compatibility for. The decision to implement the newest technologies in web design is not without inherent costs. By changing to HTML5, for example, companies willfully make the decision to exclude compatibility for older browser versions like Internet Explorer 8 and 9, which do not support many of the new features of HTML5. Internet Explorer 8 and 9 users account for nearly 7 percent of all internet traffic. Thus, the importance of fully considering implications of updating code becomes paramount, as excluding older browser versions will ultimately cost a company visitors, and by proxy, website revenue. With a new complimentary tool, Voodoo Alerts can help web development professionals locate and solve browser error problems, collect accurate data on which browsers may be causing conversion problems, and ultimately increase website revenue and overall usability for visitors.

To begin using Voodoo Alerts, users simply place a small Javascript snippet on their pages. Once set up, Voodoo Alerts will detect over 2,000 devices, operating systems, and browser combinations, alerting the website administrator if conversions are low or down. The administrator will know which type of device the errors occur on, the website page these errors occurred on, and which browser version or operating system is causing the error. Once installed, Voodoo Alerts begins autonomous 24 hour real user monitoring, learning the website's traffic segments, gathering details concerning existing problems, and guiding the website administrator directly to any possible conversion interruptions.

Voodoo Alerts offers a free trial of their new analytics tool, aptly named "Is my Site Broken?", which not only identifies possible browser errors or incompatibilities, but also alerts its administrator to possible errors as soon as they occur, saving website administrators both time and money. For a limited time, interested web developers can quickly analyze their website for errors and try Voodoo Alerts free of charge. "Is my Site Broken?" can help developers find and investigate possible incompatibilities, which do not always arise from incompatibility of new technology. CEO and Founder of Voodoo Alerts, Jon Correll reminds web developers that newer is not always better. Correll says: "Most people think that by using the latest technology, they are making their website better, and that may be the case, visually. But many forget that there is a large portion of internet users who still use older browser versions, a lot of which don't support new technology such as HTML5. By upgrading your website, you may actually be downgrading your usability, costing you visitors and in turn, costing you money. What we do is alert you when your site is broken, or a portion may be excluding potential visitors and costing you conversions. We do the monitoring so that you can sleep at night."
