This really annoys me too - especially as Blurb said they were going to put it back. It looks like they really value us hey!
Still no weekly view metrics
A couple of years ago, the very useful weekly view metrics graphs disappeared without trace. I was always interested to see how many views my books were getting. I believe that the graphs disappeared because it was discovered that they weren't working properly, and giving spurious results. I was noticing that some of my books that were marked 'private' were getting views, for example.
A thread on this topic was posted. Then, almost a year ago, someone from Blurb said that the feature would soon return, and proceeded to close the thread down.
Clearly it hasn't been a high priority for Blurb. A pity.

Still no book metrics??Should be an easy fix,,come on now..
It would be great to have those old features back. They were kind of fun to view every now and then. Number and timing of views is great to help you see how effective any kind of advertising is.
Blurb are very good at promising something, but fail every time. I really liked the weekly metrics views as it gave me a good indication as to wether my book advertising was attracting customers. Come on Blurb get a grip and sort this out!
I hear from clients who have viewed a book based on my Facebook link, but I'd really like to see how many views any of my books have gotten so I know if it's worth keeping it online. Come on already, Blurb.
Last week I sent the link to my books to 600 people not realizing that I would no longer be able to see the view metrics. Very disappointed. Blurb staff, please give us an update.
