Google Introduces Blogger Stats
You might have been using Google Analytics, Crazy Egg or any other third party tools to track your blog traffic. Now Blogger has got built-in stats. The Blogger Stats monitors and analyzes blog visitor traffic in real time. You can see which posts are getting the most visits and which sites are sending traffic to your blog right now. For example, if a reader shares one of your blog posts on Twitter and the post is getting lots of clicks, you will see a traffic increase in Blogger Stats almost instantly, with the particular Tweet mentioning your post being identified as the traffic source. Traffic data across longer time periods (day/week/month) and all-time historical data are available as well.
Go to Blogger in Draft and you’ll notice a new “Stats” tab. You don’t have to install or configure anything to start using Blogger Stats.
There is also a lot more data that’s being tracked, such as popular search keywords that send visitors to your blog, which country your visitors come from, and which web browsers they are using. Basically, with the new Stats feature, you know what’s going on with your blog right now.
These features have been available in Google Webmaster tools. But this feature will save time which users previously wasted in using Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools as a separate tools for blog statistics monitoring as they have to get the code and install it manually in the site.
The Blogger Stats feature shows all of this data in a simple, easy-to-understand graphical user interface. Since Stats are part of Blogger, you don’t have to sign up for another service, or embed any code in a gadget.
