One reason for which many blog fails including professional blogs, business blogs etc. is that they have not dealt with their own figures and statistics.
In the case of blogs so you should know who is on your own blog, which is especially popular and what is not, etc. Only those who know such things, can counteract and take appropriate action.
In this article we will present the best statistics plugin for WordPress. All these services have one thing in common. One can look at the statistical analysis directly in the WordPress admin and does not need to go to a separate site.
One of the most popular free statistical services is surely Google Analytics. Google really gives an extensive statistical service.
The widespread use of Google Analytics, a good comparison with other blogs and Web sites is guaranteed.
The plugin Google Analyticator binds not only automatically with the Google Analytics code to every page of your blog, but it also provides various output options for the statistics.
This is nice and you have a quick overview. However, you can see here the limits of such plugins. Google Analytics offers a variety of analysis options and those plugins can really provide only just list the most important.
For the daily fast enough but for now the insight completely.
MailChimp, a U.S. newsletter provider, has a plugin that looks very good.
Also the stats plugin Analytics360 does the Google Analytics data and makes the most of it in the WordPress admin panel on a separate page. The plugin is very useful even if you do not MailChimp.
It will appear as red dots in the statistics, if that day was sent to a blog post / newsletter. Unfortunately the plugin does not yet recognize when several post those have been published. But the approach is very good to link the analytics data with other data, such as the published content.
WordPress stats is developed by Automattic, the same company behind WordPress, Buddypress, Askimet etc.
Nice here is that you can evaluate the articles in detail and the plugin shows data in the dashboard.
Unlike Analytics and WordPress Stats, StatPress stores visitor data in a separate table in your WordPress database.
Here one is not dependent on an external service provider and is not release the data.
The disadvantage is that the database load by storing the traffic data but can be quite high and the database will grow rapidly.
Nevertheless StatPress is good to use and provides a sufficient statistical analysis in Admin panel. Anyone who wants to be independent, can use it.
Other plugins are WP Piwik, Wassup etc.
Piwik is an open source statistical tool that you can embed in WordPress too.
A somewhat different approach plugin Wassup . This makes it possible to “look at the finger” to its visitors live.
For a more detailed analysis of the data of course directly go to Google Analytics webs account. Some basic real time statistical plugin is really needed.
