I know that stat reporting to your readership is as exciting as an Annual General Meeting for Canadian Chartered Accountants. But the plugin WordPress.com Stats is like those new President Choice Blue Cheese and Hot Wings chips: So addictive, I will probably keel over from it.
Domain owners with WordPress and WP.com bloggers can install it as a Plugin (you’ll need your API Key). Best of all, it’s free! Instantly you can watch your incoming/outgoing stats bloom like a tense parent watching their sexually budding child go out on Prom Night.
It also does a great job logging Google searches that brought people to your site. For fun, here’s the last few searches:
