So, I got into parse.ly’s Dash trial and I’m experimenting with it here on my blog. Their self-serve on-boarding process is okay (not very difficult) but the end result is disappointing. Granted, I only just installed it and I haven’t even published an article yet(and I don’t get THAT much traffic) but the delay related to the creation of a ‘custom crawler’ is a bummer.
And, this is after I gave them my credit card info! I mean, I know it’s a 30-day trial but, I give you my credit card and instead of a blank Dash I get this (screenshot).
Anyway, I’m playing around with it and I thought I’d let you know what the user experience is like in a future installment.
So far, it’s disappointing.
