New feature request: deals store statistics

100 29 November 8, 2017 at 08:20 AM
I have a new feature request to SlickDeals team: could you please provide a deals statistics data?

For example, will be really interesting to know, which store has more deals during specific period (a month, a year or custom range) for some specific categories (electronics, food etc.)

For beginning, simple sorted tables will be good but if you can add also a nice charts, it will be terrific!

So, we should finally know who is the better: Amazon or NewEgg for electronics deals Smilie

P.S. What do you think about it?

Sounds like you don't know how statistics work. Those charts would be based on botched data.
What are you talking about?! I know, how statistics and analytics works professionally. What are you trying to say? You mean, sleakdeals team just a "team of cheaters", heh?

Just because a store have more postings doesn't mean they have better deals. Those charts would not be a good indicator or would become another gimmick (like TU/TD/Reps) to steer customers towards a certain merchant over another.

No, it looks like you don't understand how analytics works. With the proper statistical data, and enough amount of data (I believe, SlickDeals team already has both 'cause it's a business, not a fan site) you can do very interesting researches, not just a counting number of deals per store (this is a very basic analytics). You may also calculate and display trends, you may calculate overall savings in % and $$ per store/per season. There are lot of the other possibilities.

And finally if you personally not interested in that, I don't understand why do you posting here? Did I asked you to do this, did I asked you for investments to this project? No, it's my request to the SleakDeals team and I already got reply from the PR department (via email).

SlickDeals site is good, everything is working fine and (I believe so) there are no currently showstoppers. I just provide an idea, not too hard to implement but with the good potential.

It's an open forum, anyone can comment. I'm just pointing out the flaw in your idea. Don't need to be so touchy about it. Anyways, how would you even separate out amazon, aws, and 3rd party merchant sales from your data? All 3 of them are categorized as @Amazon deals on this site. They would need to be accurate data, and you can't do that on a site with user submitted contents.
