Update on Site Statistics.

As I get ever closer to that magical 1,000 hits, which for some of the blogs I follow is nothing, but for a new blog only three months old and for something I have not maintained for any length of time before, a thousand hits is a wonderful sight.

Since I published some interesting statistics about my visitors back in January, some of you were interested in finding out how I managed to get this information.  So I thought you would appreciate an update on some of those statistics statistics and a quick post on how to go about doing it.

 

The statistics in the first article (Today’s Quick Post: Some Interesting Statistics – from January 27th, 2012) were courtesy of Performance Metrics – you simply sign up for an account and they provide you with some code, which puts an invisible image on your site, which is used to send information back to Performance Metrics, and give you information about your visitors.

The information below is from a second visitor tracking site Flag Counter – as the name implies it simply tracks the locations of your visitors and places a count against each flag for the country they come from.  This works in the same way as Performance Metrics, with the exception of placing a counter box on your site… see mine at the bottom of this page.

You can put it anywhere you wish, in plain view giving your visitors interesting statistics as they browse your site, or like mine out of the way and only seen if you scroll all the way to the bottom.

With the free edition of Flag Counter, they count each visitor and place it against the country flag, and provide limited further information, like actually showing you which (in the case of the United States of America) state they are from.
