Export to CSV YouScan.me

I want to introduce you the latest of our constantly released new features. It lets you export stats data about your code in CSV format, so you can create graphs, analyze the scans and the behavior of users.

In the CSV you get data about geography of the clicks ( all clicks made from its creation sorted by countries ) and scans by date, which is available for 1 month in the past from date you are exporting the CSV. So if you want fresh and overlapping stats to work with we suggest exporting your data at least once per month.

In future we are planning to have more data you can export, like deeper geography of the scans, device with which scan is made and some more.

QR Code operating system stats for Q3 2011

Here are some inside stats of QR code usage and penetration in world for Q3 2011. Since our last stats for the First half of 2011 we saw growth in both creation and scans of QR Codes. However we have some change in places when it comes to devices used to scan codes. Last period Android phones lead iPhones with more than 8%, but now we have a different picture. In Q3 2011 iPhones are responsible for 30.19% of scans, with Androids responsible for 22.78%, which is a total game changer when we compare metrics from the last period and now. Here is some catch, so take a look at the graph and you will see a HUGE part of 28.15% of the scans which OS is marked as “not set”. From my experience and some research about Google Analytics i understood that these are mainly Android and Windows Phones so the final numbers will be different.

QR Codes SEO
Are QR Codes and SEO are walking arm in arm or QR Codes are enemies of SEO marketers? This is quite asked question and here are some opinions. Anise Smith thinks that SEO marketers are concerned that quick response codes can actually disrupt their search engine marketing or SEM strategies because QR codes can lead you directly to a website without the need for search engines. This is meaningful by the reason that searcher simply uses the “QR-as-navigation” to be immediately directed to the website or brand they are looking for, then all the efforts of SEO marketers will be put to waste. That makes people no longer competing for top search engine rank results. You have to simply open your QR reader application, scan the code and it will take you there, but don’t forget you need a QR Code in hand to be scanned.
