Microsoft adCenter Analytics Beta設定畫面

早先三月初申請加入Microsoft adCenter Analytics Beta測試(開發代號為Gatineau),當時也同時取消5美元的註冊費,直到昨天終於收到邀請碼。這項服務和Google Analytics同樣是網站流量統計分析工具,有個人網站的網友們,可到Microsoft adCenter Analytics Registration申請登記。微軟這項服務標題字面上淺顯易懂,就是要和Google爭食網站流量分析和廣告這塊大餅。

因為系統問題,微軟再次寄出第二封邀請涵。

目前有一項最大問題就是登出Microsoft adCenter,想要重新登入,竟然出現帳號和密碼比對錯誤訊息,即使重設密碼多次還是一樣的狀況。搜尋官方adCenter Analytics Community,很多人也遇到同樣的問題,官方的回答是︰

This is an emerging issue that we are working on in the backend. We had to spend some time verifying there was a backend issue, but it appears to be headed that way. We apologize for this, and will get it back up as soon as possible. IT doesn’t seem to affect every account, but many accounts are affected.

Thanks for your patience.


大意是說,這是一個新出現的問題,我們得花一些時間查證後端問題,這個問題似乎沒有影響到每個帳號,但是有很多帳號都受到影響。如有這類或其他問題,請到這裡回報問題。

2008/04/08︰這是今早收到微軟支援團隊的客服回覆,看來帳號和密碼錯誤無法登入的案件相當多,他們已經積極努力解決問題,但是沒有一個時間表保證何時可以修復,所以只能耐心等待囉。信件內容如下︰

Hi Carlos,

We thank you for the information that you provided.

You may want to clear your temporary internet files and try logging in again at this URL:
https://adcenter.microsoft.com/Default.aspx
However, you may still experience the same error as before.

Unfortunately, we are experiencing a widespread issue of new Analytics users not being able to sign in to their newly created accounts.
Our engineers and developers are currently working to find a resolution to this problem. There is no current timeline as to when this might be fixed.
I am going to escalate your case up to them as another example of the impact of this issue. As soon as I receive a response with a resolution, I will contact you immediately with this information.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
We appreciate your patience in this matter.
Thank you.

Kind regards,
Rich
Microsoft Analytics Support Team

2009/03/21︰adCenter Analytics Beta To Close,也就是微軟到2009/12/31會關閉此服務,沒有說明其原因(不過無法登入的Bug還是沒解決),微軟特別推薦幾個網站分析服務連結,例如Google AnalyticsYahoo! Web Analytics
