We’ve added some new features to the stats system. When you got to your blogs stats on your dashboard you’ll notice next to each of the top posts for a given day there is a “stats” link. (We’re going to have a nifty icon for this.)
If you click on that, it will take you to the historical stats for that given post. You can see how the popularity of a post evolved over time. Most posts probably start out with lots of hits and then go down, but some may spike if you get a link from something like Digg. It will also tell you how many views total that post has gotten.
We’ve also brought back the total posts, comments, tags, and Akismet stats as the fourth box on the stats page, so you can now see these stats all in one place again.
Update: We now have a cool stats icon — — care of Bryan.
