• Stats need to be enabled for a URL by either logging in or check marking "Log stats for this URL" when you create it.
• Bar charts will be blank and pie charts will be "missing" completely if clicks for the week are zero. It is not a bug or browser problem, but simply was designed to not display a chart if clicks for the time period is zero. Systems, Browsers, Countries pie charts only display metrics for the current week (they are reset on Sun) so will sometimes appear to not match-up with bar charts. Also note that the "year" bar chart view has been reset for 2011, but Total clicks have not been reset.
n/a on a pie chart means source is unidentified or not available. There are many miscellaneous mobile platforms that may fall through the cracks of our ID system.

Social Media Click StatisticsAre you experiencing many clicks immediately after posting to a social media site? It's because bots will hit your link as soon as they see it. Bots are automated software that surf web sites looking for information. What you see in this case are twitter bot and various other social media analysis engines crawling and collecting content data on your link.
Click StatisticsWhy don't Tiny stats always show the same number of clicks as Google analytics, bitly, or other tracking methods? Those services appear to subtract search engines and various robot clicks from their totals, or something else? Tiny gives you the full, unfiltered web traffic picture that others do not. Total clicks = all visitors, regardless of source. Unique clicks = all unique visitors. Return clicks = total visits minus uniques. The ratio of unique to return visitors helps you figure out interest level or stickiness of your page content.

QR (quick response)Code uses include traditional offline publications such as newspapers and magazines; making them more interactive by integrating hyperlinks and other internet resources into articles. Ads, coupons and affiliate links can be integrated as well. Marketing uses include business cards (you can order business cards with your QR-code on the backside), T-shirts, product packing, signs, etc. TIP: Print your code on printable sticker paper for more options and versatility. Uses and locations for these are nearly unlimited.
QR codes can be made with different error correction levels (L, M, Q, H). Use L when you want a simple, lower DPI QR - or to fit a small area such as on a business card. For customizing purposes use a higer error correction level such as H (30% can be lost or damaged) or Q (25% can be lost or damaged). By adding a logo or text to the center of the QR code you are basically damaging it and relying on the redundancy of this error correction to compensate and make it function. Customizing can be a trial and error process. If you have gone too far with your art work, the QR will stop functioning! To customize, download the QR then insert your image or text using Photoshop - similar to the example below:
