Statcounter will track a single blog or a group of projects with each account.
Available statistics include keyword analysis, visitor paths, came from, entry and exit pages, and page loads.
The free version resets at 500, but offers lifetime summary stats. Easy to install, this is a free and invisible counter.
Remember, unless otherwise stated, all these features are part of our free service.
Bloggers who own sites powered by WordPress platform (like me) can also take advantage of StatCounter’s plugin.
Like other WordPress plugins, this web tracker plugin is easy to install and use.
Once it’s activated, it begins to track visitors from any page and reports more in detail the web traffic than any other WordPress statistics plugins.
