- Is there an “invisible” Markerly? I want the analytics, but I don’t want the sharing options to appear.
Yes! You have the option at Markerly.com when generating code to make it invisible purely for copy & paste analytics. This does not affect your analytics, except that you will not see an increase in page views or click-backs by removing the social aspect of Markerly. All copy & paste data will be provided to you.
- I put Markerly on my site but I never signed up. Can I still access my data?
Yes. All you need to do is grab your publisher ID from the Markerly code that you added to your site and then go here to link a new account to it.
