blogger stats service

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.
