3 Free Tools To Analyze Your Blog Traffic Stats

Analyze Blog Traffic Stats

When it comes to analyzing blog traffic stats, we have ample amount of tools to analyze your blog stats. Some of them are paid, and some of them are free. When it’s come to free open-source tool, I never give a second thought about paid tools. Here I’m sharing 3 Tools which I always use to analyze my Website stats.

Blog Traffic Stats

List of Blog traffic Stats tool that I’m using:

Before, we move ahead I also suggest you to look into my list of Blogging tools, which will help you to discover some new tools for your blogging.

Google analytics:

Of all the traffic stats program, Google analytics is the best and free one. I have been using it since 2008, and I have seen it grown from the old design to the new design, which par excellence for any free product. I have shared a detailed post on What is Google analytics, and here are some of other posts related to G.A, which will help you to get more out of it.

site-meter

Sitemeter:

Sitemeter is another great tool which I use. Though I don’t use it on all of my blog, because with one sign up they allow only one website monitoring, and that is something which I don’t like.  Here are some of the posts from past which will help you to make most out of site meter.

wordpress.com-stats

WordPress.com Stats plugin using Jetpack plugin

This is one of my favorite WordPress plugin to keep track of my stats. I like this plugin because I can see my traffic stats in real time. Most important it helps me a lot to find out daily stats of posts. So I can keep track that post is performing well. One another great feature is search engine keywords and referring posts. I like all this features in short, and if you are not using all these, you might like to get this plugin by installing Jetpack plugin.

Another one which I have not listed here but is quite notable is Statcounter which is a real-time stats program. They also have an iPhone and Google play app which makes it more meaningful.

Well, there are many more free and paid Blog Traffic Stats tool are there in the market, but above three are something that I use on WordPress powered blog, and they take care of my need.

Before you add the comment, I know more service like I mentioned above exist to keep track of website traffic. I will love to know your view on more such service which you use to keep a track of your site stats?

    I’ve been using WP Stats. I like the interface. I’m getting the need for a new feature though, I’d like to have my stats emailed to me each week. Does anyone prefer looking at their blog stats this way with other stats programs, rather than checking them all the time?

    I tried feed burner on recommendation but not once did it update and keep showing that no one has visited and no one has subscribed but i keep getting comments and i keep getting subscribers. I hope these work out.
    Thanks.

    WordPress.com Stats plugin is a good one… Google analytics take time to get result but its more advanced ..

  5. Tushar says

    i use analytics extensively but never took sitemeter seriously….it just do not suit my flavor

  6. Technolic says

    Personally I find Google Analytics the most comprehensive, customizable and accurate free site-tracking service. Statcounter reports more or less accurately, but the reporting features are not so comprehensive and customizable. The email-reporting feature of Google Analytics is also the best. Sitemeter too has fewer features and the limit of one website per account, as Harsh mentioned.

  8. Anish K.S says

    Google Analytics and Wp Stats are enough. Analytics is a cool and must tool for all bloggers.

  9. Shiva | Web Magazine says

    I see that the traffic details shown in each of these tools are totally different. Can you tell me which of these tool shows the most accurate traffic details. I probably think it is Google Analytics but I want to make it sure from your opinion. :)

      Hey shiva,

      Ya, I too noticed the difference in them. I think it’s because wordpress.com stats won’t count the visits made by logged in users and bots etc. That may be the reason ….. i think

    • Shaquille says

      Anaytics programs record different types of visits. Such as Page Views, Unique Visitors, Bots, and other various sites. I recommend Piwik as it records everything and you can get more plugins to record different things. You also have the ablitiy to edit the settings quite simply.

      I’m using google analytics and wordpress.com stats. But I think that wordpress.com stats is the best. It can be easily viewed at the dashboard itself
