Have you ever wanted to know exactly what people are reading on your blog or where they are from? Would you like to see which links they are visiting on your blog? How much would this information help you to write a better blog, one that more people would visit?
I have been talking about how Web-stat can help people track their pay per click advertising campaigns for a while now, but it can do the same for your blog as well.
Except instead of just writing about how it works I have decided to use actual screen shots of it working on my blog
First of all this is what your visitors will see, a simple counter. With 174 different styles you are sure to find one that fits the theme of your blog.
Other options for you to use on your blog are the connection counter, the recent visitor map or cumulative map. All four options are easily added. Web-stat supplies east to understand instructions for adding these functions to your blog in seconds.
Displayed is the Flash version of the Recent Visitor Map.
A faster loading Non-Flash version of the Recent Visitor Map is also available.
Above are the options of views which you can display to your visitors, but what’s in it for you? Just what kind of information can you receive?
Below is a small screen shot of my actual stats displaying two of my most recent visitors. As you can see one visitor is new to my blog while the other is a returning guess. With the use of Web-stat I know the date and time each visit occurred.
In the next field of stats I am informed of the entry page of each visit, whether the visitor came straight to my blog page or if came to one of my posts instead.
Also I can see at first glance that the latest visitor had only visited 1 page when this screen shot was taken while the previous visitor visited 4 pages.
The next field “Visitor Location & IP” can be very useful. Each visitor’s Country, City, and State or Region is detected including their zip code. Also their IP address and internet provider is recorded.
With these facts Web-stat can be enabled to use their Geo-Targeting feature. This option can be setup to allow different versions of your pages to be displayed according to the viewer’s location. This feature can also be used to block traffic from locations which are sending you spam.
The remaining fields of this stat view advises you of the visitor’s operating system, the browser they are using and their color settings.
Then By hovering your mouse over the Page Visits Field a popup is displayed which lists the pages which were visited. If this visitor had clicked on one of the links on my blog I could also see his path away from my site.
By clicking the Page Visits Field I am able to view how much time my visitor spent on each page of his visit.
All of the Stat views above are streaming live view stats and there are many more views which are recorded for your viewing. Cumulative reports such as:
• Visitor’s country of origin
• Visitor’s region/state of origin
• Visitor’s city of origin
• Geographical location of last 1000 visitors
• Total visits per day
