Best WordPress Stats Plugin

Dubbed Automattic Stats (or Stats), it has been out less than a week and it shows great promise and was developed by Andy, a well known wordpress developer. I’ve started using it and it’s the way. If you can trust WordPress then you can trust their stats. Here’s why it’s cool…

  • It works wherever your WordPress is hosted.
  • It’s central. You can check the stats for all of your blogs in one place.
  • It’s easy on your host. Your server doesn’t have to ask our server for raw data each time you browse the reports.
  • It’s fast. Their servers can talk directly to the stats database and display the results unaffected by the loads and limits of your server.
  • It’s quite reliable.
  • It’s future-proof. Whenever they update the reporting interface, add features, improve graphs, fix bugs, etc., you don’t have to upgrade your plugin.
  • It’s ready now.

Here’s where you get it, and here is what it looks like.

Installing this stats plugin is much like installing Akismet, all you need is to put in your API Key and the rest is automatic. Once it’s running it’ll begin collecting information about your pageviews, which posts and pages are the most popular, where your traffic is coming from, feed stats and what people click on when they leave. It’ll also add a link to your dashboard which allows you to see all your stats on a single page.
