As a design team who spend most of the day on our favourite basketball-themed design site, we figured Dribbble deserved a place on our prestigious Sources widget. Any traffic to your sites from your Dribbble shots now show up with lovely little previews and like counts.

Very sweet. Love the "pixels dribbbled" stat on your site, too. I am long overdue checking GoSquared out, remedying that now.
@Rich Thornett Thanks! Would love to know your thoughts, it was great to meet out in San Diego. We are making tonnes of improvements and updates so hopefully there will be many more shots to dribbble in the coming weeks!
Pretty awesome. I think I'll sign up and check this out.
Love the "intro to visitors widget" page!
Sweet. Signed up on the free account earlier this week. Snagging the upgrade to $4.50/month is totally worth it.
Just signed up. Google Analytics was starting to piss me off. So far this is better!
This is by far the coolest thing I've seen. Google Analytics just got tossed out the window. I will start marketing this service to my web clients. Glad I saw the shout out by @dribbble on Twitter.
I'm really curious about GoSquered. Will check it out later thanks! Overall look: awesome!
@GoSquared Was curious, how do you guys capture the particular shot someone is coming from? We only link to a member's personal site from their profile, so presumably the referrer url would be the member's profile page.
Nice product, was looking at stats this morning. Sad traffic numbers makes me realize I need to do something with my personal site.
Awesome work fellas!
@Rich Thornett Thanks for the kind words on the product, I know that feeling as well on my personal site!
To answer your question - we just look if the url referrer matches a shot URL, if it does we display the image and details. Traffic from profiles and other areas of the site just get's filled in the same way as if it was from any other site and doesn't include the shot thumbnail. Hopefully we can do even more cool/useful stuff with the API soon!
@GoSquared Was just wondering since there is no link on a shot page to the shot owners's personal web page, so unless they link to their site from within a comment, it doesn't seem that the referrer would reference a shot. Presumably most Dribbble referrer urls are from the player's profile page.
I may be missing something obvious. I usually am :)
@Rich Thornett on the majority of posts, we (personally) link to a relevant blog article or something we're working on — since more people get to see the shot from the popular and new pages, and sharing, etc., it gets more views. We're definitely working on integrating Dribbble-to-your-site views as well.
If you'd like to chat more, feel free to send an email my way: email@example.com
Just signed up for a year. Love the service. I basically signed up because I got real value from the emails I was getting from you guys everyday during the trial. It made sense and I was able to show it to others with minimal explanation.
