Adding StatCounter to Your Blog

Sponsored Ads
There are ways to track the number of visitors visiting your blog everyday. In Blogger.com, we can use the "Stats" section to view the number of page views, which posts are getting more traffic, keywords that draw traffic to your blog and who your blog audiences are. Basically, you get almost all details from the "Stats" section of your Blogger.com account. The disadvantage of using Blogger.com "Stats" section is that you have to login to your blogger account to see your blog stats.

If you would like to use 3rd party statcounter, you can actually place unique statcounter on your blog and you can view your blog stat just by clicking on the statcounter widget placed on your blog.



Here I recommend 5 statcounters for blogs. You can check them out and get one that suit you. These statcounter are free but you can upgrade to paid version if you want to.

Actually, I am a fan of ShinyStat counter. I am using it on my other blogs as it provides good information about the traffic on blogs. ShinyStat is free if your blog traffic is below 1000 page views a day. ShinyStat provides great insights about blog traffic such as keywords that drive traffic to blog, countries, system used by visitors to view blog etc.
