Did you ever look at your stats chart and wonder which posts were published on a particular day? Now it’s easy to find out. Just move your mouse around the chart. (This only works for WordPress.com blogs right now.)
Did you ever wonder how many hits your home page gets? Now it’s listed along with your posts. There is also a comprehensive report page reachable by clicking the little icon on the right. (This works for WordPress.com blogs and self-hosted blogs using the Stats plug-in. No upgrade is required.)
I hope these little upgrades will help you prosper in the new year. :)
I’ve only been using WordPress a few months and discovered these features recently, thinking they’d always been there. Very useful, thank you.
Nice improvement, but what I’m really missing are stats for tags and categories. Stats for tags seem pretty important for P2-blogs in particular.
I can feel the “prosperity” already. And I think I noticed the mouseover thing days ago. Thanks!
Love Stats ~ These Rock ~ Thanks WordPress!
Andy, this is most excellent! I love my stats. What readers like most and any correlation regarding time of day, day of week, as well as date all helps me shape what to write and and when to publish. I shall forward my blog to a publisher in due course and need to show relevant readership stats in support of my case for book publication. Regards, Richard.
Oh, I thought something went wrong in my stats. But then, all the hits at my Blog really happens ;D
Thanks for these two great changes… and also the tip on splitting pages to get people to click through for stats.
I like it homepage stats. Its usefull. Thnaks
Thank you for the upgrade, awesome.
Thank you so much! What a difference! I always wondered how many hit the Home Page. Thanks
Has the comprehensive report always been there?
Personally I love the feature (thank you!). Did notice there’s a small band of malcontents over on one of the forums: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/new-stats-feature-how-to-turn-off?
They’ll get used to it!
I’m a big fan of homepage stats already. Thanks WP!
Very nice! Now I can be even MORE obsessed with my stats!
great add on!
now i am only waiting for two more things:
1: how many visitors created the views
2: which country did they come from
the year just started ;o)
keep going on working on with the best bog site!
Question though – does the home page stat include all the pages? Like Url/page 1, Url/page 2 etc?
Thank you. This rocks!
Un plus effectivement pour la page d’accueil ! et les rapports complets, qui nous permettent de cibler les sujets qu’affectionnent plus particulièrement nos visiteurs :razz:
Nice. Always wanted the home page stats to be listed.
Guess now you can see if your latest post has resulted in that huge traffic spike :).
The stats upgrade has weird reaction with the Top Post widget. Please see this: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/new-stat-section-home-page?replies=40#post-418276
As far as my blog is concerned, the number one posted item in my Top Post widget is out of synch with others.
The stat service is great and these features makes it even better – thanks!
I had the long title problem too but it’s fixed now. I really like these changes – thanks!
Love the new features!
I noticed these upgrades, and I love them. :)
Nice! Love. Love. Love! Great gift for the new year from my WordPress!! Thank you so much!!
thx a lot wordpress, the homepage one makes a lot of difference for stats addicts.
Love the stat upgrades! The work put in is very much appreciated.
Yep! noticed most of these already but was really wondering about the homepage thing. Thx for clearing it up.:)
Finally Mystery solved for inaccurate stats!
I love the latest feature stats related to homepage. Thanks wordpress!!!
These features are awesome! Thanks so much.
Good Useful features.
Yes! They’re great additions. I always knew I was bad at math, but the way the stats used to be done made me consider remedial addition courses with a bunch of third graders. At least now I know I’m not as dumb as I thought I was…..or am I?
I was wondering about the Home Page when it just showed up on the stats yesterday! Thanks.
hey I noticed this and thought that these 2 features were cool. Helps in tracking blog posts and their reception better :) great going. hope to see more features in the future.
The “Home Page” thing really confused me at first, but I am glad it’s there. I had noticed previously that the numbers of views weren’t adding up right with the pages listed, and now I know why: home page views weren’t getting counted.
Thanks much for the change.
Hey, thanks for both of these! I noticed also and figured it out…like others the home page was confusing at first. Now I can’t imagine not knowing this info!
Yes I noticed the changes and yes I appreciate the added information. One additional item on my wishlist is to be able to distinguish unique readers as opposed to just number of reads. I guess some kind of script to filter IP addresses would be needed for that.
I noticed these about a week ago. I think they’re fantastic. Thanks!
Thanks for more stats!! Can’t get enough. Happy New Year, guys and gals.
Keep the stats coming! They’re so informative and addictive. The more stat features you guys can add, the better!
Keep up the great work!
Is there any way (or any plans) to be able to see a Map Overlay/Geographic stats on where people are visiting from? Google Analytics functionality in this is superb, I’d love to see something to that effect.
Guys, you are the best!
good stats rule
“Personally I love the feature (thank you!). Did notice there’s a small band of malcontents over on one of the forums: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/new-stats-feature-how-to-turn-off?
They’ll get used to it!”
Actually, that’s a small group of people, of whom I’m one, expressing perfectly valid opinions. It’s called free speech – you may have heard of it.
I think that both of them are fantastic!!! In particular the one of the “homepage”… :-p
Awesome stuff. I always wanted the Homepage stats.
There is a long-standing problem with the stats graph: hits drop way off on the last day, because the last day’s not over yet. Why not omit that last, misleading data point?
I did notice them, and are very useful, thanks.
The “Home Page” display count is nice :D
I did notice them … Thank you very much! ;)
Noticed them …………..and love them. Thank you.
You are making stats far too interesting!
Very nice and handy, thank you for these. :)
Thanks for the upgrades to the stats, when I saw Home Page show up yesterday I started to inquire on the forums, but I figured an announcement was coming soon. FYI – The 1st screen shot doesn’t show up for me. I’m using Chrome.
Thanks it’s a great improvement. Keep up the good work.
Ok, I refreshed the page and I can see it now. Thanks.
Yes, I have noted and appreciated this change. Thanks.
Loving wordpress :D I wanna have little wordpress babieees !!
Great stats. I’m a metric junky, so thanks.
Thanks Guys! That’s very usefull. :D
Changes noted. Thank you. :)
Thanks WP Team. Much appreciated.
The Home Page hit count especially.
Kudos to WP. Love the Stat upgrades! :)
Very nice indeed !
What would be even better (and it’s something I’ve waited for a long time) is an ability to add stats info to individual blog posts via shortcodes.
My point is completely off-base but necessary: Why is the Mac Afee security software showing my site/blog verification button in gray (color) instead of green? Isn’t my blog/site secure or safe enough for them to apply the green button. Can you, please, explain? http://philemonowona.wordpress.com
I noticed what I think is a bug with the posts on the chart. If the post is published automatically (scheduled posts) they don’t show up in the chart tooltip. Otherwise, I’m loving the enhancements. Thank you!!
That’s great information – especially knowing how many users visit my home page. Thanks!
Noticed that yesterday. Way cool. Thank you!
That’s really good about the homepage stat, because I always wondered about it. Thank you.
Fine, but what’s a home page? I have a very simple blog — http://luysii.wordpress.com/ which is just a series of posts, starting with the most recent. When I open the blog I go to the top one. I know you’re not supposed to ask questions here, but the forum on the Home Page had stuff which assumed you know what a Home Page actually is. Isn’t there something like a glossary for the various parts of WordPress. Sabin-Wilson’s book (which is pretty good) didn’t even have it in the index. So here goes (with appologies for asking in this space).
Today’s stats look like this

How do people get to the various posts without going to the site first?
Where IS my home page?
Apologies (again) for asking
i love getting homepage results now. but… if only we could get to see the number of “visitors” (along with page impressions)….
These stats are very helpful.
I did notice the post thing, but I didn’t notic the pages hits!
I liked it all. thanks a lot very helpful
I love the Homepage thing!
ahh, yes, to check my popularity….hmmm, still in the single digits. Still I love these features. Thanks!
Cheers and here’s to more great little things on WordPress! Sweetman
Very nice upgrade indeed. Thanks for working so hard for us.
yes! i love it :) it is very useful
Does anyone else notice a difference between the use of this plugin on a wordpress.com blog and on a self-hosted blog? When I had my wordpress.com blog for years, I noticed the wordpress stats were always 40% or more higher than the statcounter image counter stats I also had on my blog. Now that I’ve migrated my blog utilizing wordpress.org software to my own host, I notice almost the opposite. The wordpress stats plugin is 30% lower than my statcounter stats. Has anyone else encountered this? Is there a reason why that could be?
I love the stats upgrade! WordPress Rocks!!
a simple thank you.
i always wanted to know the hits on the home page.
-it’s where all the magic starts on a blog….
and it’s now come true…
Thanks so much for these!
Is this new and useful feature in any way responsible for “Top Posts” to list incorrectly?
Home page hits – brilliant! Also for the continuous improvements to stats overall – every improvement is worth gold
Great feature works like a charm! Keep up the good work folks!
I love the new stat features. Please keep them coming! The more the merrier;)
I’m so glad you keep on improving everything. I really like what you’ve done with the stats as it brings more meaning to what is being searched for. The home page stats are really nice. Thank you.
I spotted this…I thought it was fantastic!
Very good. I was wondering why there is home page stat until I saw this. The post title in the stats works very well to me as well. Keep up the great work wordpress.com!
I love it!!! But what feature to tell me which post is getting most viewers in my blog?
