This Man Needs Stats, Stat!

One of the perks of having a web site is seeing the kind of traffic you get: how often people are checking the site, what pages they're going to, etc. But until now, the only way I gaged that was by my popularity on Google, my ranking on and the number of comments I get on my posts. That simply wasn't enough.

For years there have been free stat services on the internet that you can plug your site into. I've never really been fond of any of them, they all seemed very clunky.

I've since changed my mind. Yesterday I started to use a free service from It's simple. All you do is copy and paste a little snippet of code into your pages and BLAM, instant tracking results.

It's easy, it's fun, and it's now another web site I can waste my day at watching who's been on my site. Big Brother is watching.

Ditto! There's some really cool tracking / tracing information that this thing will give you!

I used to have StatCounter but for some reason, I ended up hating it so I dumped it. I can't for the life of me remember why, though. Let me know how it works out for you.
