Statcounter, the free on-line based website statistics package just plain rocks ! Not only do you get a decent amount of statistics of different types, you get a good enough log size for free !
So how does it work ? You add a small piece of invisible code to every page on your site that you want to record activity on and open an account with Statcounter. I have it both on this blog and on our main websites at work and the results are fantastic – you can tell down to the city or town who is looking at your site, where they are and how they came to you … and they now have a code snippet especially for blogs.
Exicting stuff if you are in to it or your business depends on the geography of your users !
Based on the stats for my site I think I should write more posts concerning the great country of America and I might just well do that, given the shennanigans beginning to unfold in the race for the White House.
Just this morning I’ve gotten American visits from Peoria – Arizona, Dixon – Illinois, Nashville – Tennessee and Tuscaloosa – Alabama, as well as several more from the bigger cities. Across the world, I’ve been hit from Tallinn – Estonia, Quezon City – Philippine Islands, Baku – Azerbaijan and Osaka – Japan. The Japanese visitor, obviously lost, ended up staying for 48 seconds ! See ! Tonnes of
useless useful information …
So there you go – check out Statcounter and tell ‘em I sent ya !
