24 Plugins for Stats Junkies

The name of the linked post is actually 24 Noble WordPress Plugins To Determine The Performance of your Blog, but it is safe to say that you would artificially kill the performance of your blog if you were to install of them (read: don’t install them all). However, if you are a stats junky like me, you might be interested in some of the plugins mentioned in the App Sheriff post such as Feed Statistics, Live, Post and Comments Time and Social Traffic Monitor. Now most of the information provided by these plugins can be derived from regular statistics sources but the filters can be interesting for some folks. Head over to the App Sheriff and see what you *might* have been missing!

We use stats, Statcounter and Google Analytics on this blog. I know that is two too many, but what can I say, I am a stats junky!

    The Stat Plugins I basically use are:
    Google Analytics because the WordPress Theme I use simply allows you to include Google Analytics.But if you are not using such a Theme, this plugin – Google Analytics for WordPress – makes it simple to add Google Analytics. Definitely a must-have if you’re tracking visitor activity. Stats – Tracks views, post/page views, referrers, and clicks. Requires a API key. While Google Analytics offers better reporting features, this allows you to see you stats, at a glance, on the admin dashboard when you login.

    I am currently using Kstas, WassUp and Google Analytics for my blog stats and find that it is sufficient to provide the information I need.

    I want to get more stats but I’m afraid that it will slow down my blog considerably

    I use google analytics and feedburner but I may try out the the backlinks plugin as I don’t have an accurate count of backlinks to my blog.

    I use Statcounter and Google Analytics. Statcounter because it is real time, and google analytics more for long term strategies and trends.

    I think Google Analytics is one of the best way to analyze traffic and so on. Interesting for me are the points keywords and my top content. I think google does his job very good although they are greed of eating all data of me and the whole world.
    The question for me is if google sells the data they are catching every day…

    For my Blogger blog I use Statcounter and Google Analytics. Google Analytics has a plugin to monitor visitors from social networks. You need to first download a Firefox plugin (greasemonkey)then download the plugin for Google Analytics, see my blog for details.
