Looks like Bango are moving away from url redirection mobile analytics to page tags.
".... Bango Analytics currently focuses on campaign tracking where we use link redirection technology to accurately identify and record individuals clicking on your mobile ads and marketing campaigns. In the next couple of weeks we will launching our page tracking technology which uses a simple image tag to track site navigation....."
Wow I wonder how this will affect people who have deployed their page redirection technology into their websites (in order to implement Bango you need to 'modify' your content).
I'm sure they aren't going to dump it straight away - but this looks like they have made the decision that they are giving up on url redirection (which I always thought was a clumsy way to implement mobile interaction with your mobile websites).
So basically this leave 7 or 8 vendors using page tags for mobile analytics (which has a whole set of issues for some mobile browsers anyway) and Amethon's Mobile Analytics, which is the only vendor using Wireline Capture. Whilst it does require a dedicated server within the data center network its the only solution that doesn't require any modification to the mobile website content.
For those of you who haven't checked out http://www.amethon.com/Content_Common/pg-Mobile-Analytics.seo Wireline Capture is basically packet sniffing. It's the only way to see 100% of the http packets travelling to and from the handset browser to the mobile webserver content.
Interesting to see how the market handles this announcement.
