Artfire has enabled site search in Google Analytics for its sellers

After some cajoling, Artfire has finally enabled site search in Google Analytics for its sellers. You can find more info in this thread on the Artfire Forums: http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=forums&op=view_topic&tid=855

I posted about this topic earlier when it was enabled by Etsy. You can find the post here:

Sellers should know where the traffic is generated for their shops. Utilizing Google Analytics to track both internal as well as external traffic metrics makes good business sense. If you’d like to enable site search for your Artfire Studio, you can find the detailed instructions in MY ARTFIRE: MY STUDIO: MY STATS. Scroll to the middle of the page and look for the Google Analytics section on your page.  Visit the forum link above if you get stuck.

Nice little bit of growth there. I’ve been very pleased with Artfire to date, both in support, functionality and the rate of improvement.
