Free Tumblr Analytics Tools for Writers

Do you wish you could find out more about how readers respond to your work on Tumblr?

Union Metrics has released a free set of analytics for Tumblr users. You can sign up for the waiting list at this link. SocialTimes has more about the tools:

Union Metric licenses Tumblr data “fire hose” from reseller Gnip. Its enterprise-tier analytics offer full text search of that data, allowing brands to monitor their own blogs, competitors’ blogs and mentions of their company or product anywhere on Tumblr. Today, Union began offering packages priced for individual users. (Users can sign up today for the beta test.) The service will provide users with free monthly traffic data, follower counts, information on who has re-blogged their content, and performance metrics on individual accounts.

SocialTimes editor Devon Glenn shared these tools today on the Morning Media Menu.
