In a few minutes you'll be able to determine not only who is reading your Myspace, but at what times and how often. This sort of information is priceless in a time when cyber-stalkers are in no shortage and your privacy is constantly in danger. Maybe you just want to know if that special someone is thinking about you, or if your friends are noticing your new picture. Whatever the case, we'll help you out. Realizing that a lot of people use Myspace, I wrote this article with the intentions that it'd be as basic as possible. The topics and instructions I've outlined here are simplified so anyone can follow them, but if you have problems please check the forums before asking me. What is a Myspace tracker, are they real, and do they work? A Myspace tracker simply lets you see who has visited your Myspace page. Yes, they are real. I've reviewed two of them now. Some cost money, some are free. They work by adding a picture to your Profile, so when someone views your page the image's server tracks some information about that person and displays it for you later. Most trackers have a separate page that is used to let you login and view who's been on your page without even opening Myspace.com. Why use a Myspace tracker? That's a good question. The reason to use a Myspace tracker is to give you statistics on who's visiting your Myspace page, how many times that person visited your page, where they're from, and ultimately who they are. Who they are is the last part of the process and sometimes takes a little technique, which is what this article is about. There's an edge to knowing everyone who visited your Myspace page during a given day, like maybe some girl you've been messaging trying to impress or maybe you think someone's a cyber-stalker. There's another benefit: some trackers allow you, once configured, to block others from seeing that you visited your site. Think of it like a condom for your privacy. How to set one up: This time around, we used Trakzor, a completely free tracker (at this time). You must sign up to use this but it only requires an e-mail address and password to access your account. - Go here to register: Trakzor MySpace Tracker Registration Page - Once registered, login: Trakzor MySpace Tracker Registration Page Before you do anything else, you must add the code to your Myspace page so you can begin tracking others. Click "Profile Code" near the top, and it will give you some code, something like this: Now to be honest, you don't need all of that. It's simply trying to pimp some more pages and will also help others detect your tracker faster. If you remove the lines after the first </a> (i.e. Everything after the tracker) it will still function perfectly. You could also hide the image by dropping its width and height to 1, but that'd be rude and sneaky... If these things are too hard for you, simply paste the code given to you as is. Tracking people: Copy the code given to you (right click, Copy) and paste it (right click, Paste) into your Myspace page by clicking Edit Profile when you first login. You can put it anywhere, but About Me: is the typical section. Save all changes. Now the fun begins. After a few hours or so of having the code installed, head back on the Trakzor page and click Check Visitors. If you don't have any visits yet, wait a day or so then come back to this page because it should be tracking by now. You'll notice there are sorting options to the left. If someone visited your page, they will show up on a list, stating what time, frequency, and location they visited from. You can't identify everyone yet, but we'll cover that later. While you're here, check Privacy Settings if you want to hide yourself to others who have this tracker. You can also set up notifications if you're paranoid to be notified when anyone even visits your Myspace page. Identifying the Visitors If someone comments on your your page often, they will probably be very easy to identify, but most will show up as a color/number combination, such as "Non-Trakzor User Green 191", only giving you a time and location. If they're not an unblocked Trakzor user, their picture will already show up. Otherwise you need to do more research. Check the times that new comments, messages, and image comments were added to your Myspace page. Any timestamped areas like Inbox, Friend Requests and Comments will give you great clues. The timestamped can simply be compared to those in Trakzor. If they match or are close, and no other users were around, you can be fairly certain you've found the person, so click Identify Them in Trakzor. If you're unsure, put the possible suggestions in for now ("Tom or Amy or Jane") until you're more sure. This may sound sinister, but another good way to acquire their identity in your tracker would be to visit your Myspace page from their computer, or AIM/IM them telling them to check your page on their own. You'll see a new anonymous listing with a time on your Trakzor page, so you can easily identify them using the Identify User button (on the right, as pictured above). If you're very sure that you know who the person is by comparing the times, tell Trakzor their Myspace ID, and it will always show their Myspace link and default picture when they visit your page in the future. The Myspace ID can be found by right-clicking a user's profile or picture in your page, and choosing Copy Shortcut. If you paste this into the Visitor Identification Form (pictured above), simply remove everything before the = sign at the end of the link, and the = sign itself. This should leave you with a unique 5-9 digit number or so, their Myspace Friend ID. That's about it Thanks for reading and have fun tracking everyone on your page. Please don't shoot the messenger.
