Two New Stats Things

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. 🙂

    Great additions. The homepage stats will be the most useful I think as now I can gauge how many people are traveling through that page and what else they may be viewing. love it all!

    I am really amazed to know that our WordPress is making our blogging life so handy, simple and cozy.
    Posting the posts are half job done; and tracking the ‘access’ of those posts by the people and reforming ourselves on the ‘feedback’ feeds is another half task to bedone – these two tasks together may make our blogging job ‘full’. I really appreciate the WordPress team on behalf of the entire blogging community, for their continuus innovations there. Thanks and Congrats.

    I love having the home page view totals at long last. I used to count the all the individual post hit totals and subtract from the overall total to figure this out. This saves a lot of work. Now the most important remaining stat feature would be daily unique visitors. Have you guys ever worked on that?

    Andy, if we have people subscribed to posts by email and that’s the only way they read posts, does that automatically-generated email count as a “hit” in our blog stats if they are never actually visiting our URL?

  30. Wings of Wind

    Yeah, ok, thanks. But in order to have a good tracking engine you must have at leasts two things more:

    1. Count of uniques (not only the total sum of visits)
    2. Visitor Geolocation (from where the visitors come)

    …And if you want to be really professional, perhaps is good to add the OS, browser and the screen resolution of the visitor. It helps (sometimes a lot) in the design of our blog.

    TIA & Happy New Year.

    This is great – I’ve always wondered about how many hits the page gets rather than articles themselves.

    Can someone confirm, HomePage counts now include anyone typing in your blog name in the address bar and also any hits to the main page from any of your posts being found by googling them?

    When your posts are found by a google search that first hits WordPress articles, then links to your blog post, or if someone clicks on an article title (or from any other link within the blog), then they are added to the post count rather than the HomePage one?

    Is there a similar feature in the works for the other pages on the blog? That would be very helpful.

    What about a way to track the cumulative total of views each post over time has in order of total hits without going into each one individually?

    How about a feature to track thesyndicated hits as well, to het a more accurate view of the total number of visits?

    Thanks for all the blessings that you keep bringing to us!

    Like someone mentioned, I had been thinking the weird addition problem was a foible on my part that just reinforced that I was just bad at math, when in reality adding the homepage to the count throws the addition off. Now I get why this happens, though. Thanks for explaining!

    That’s great, but what I would really like is if we could use Google Analytics.

    Sometimes there are things that I would like to post on my WP blog that I put on a wikispaces site instead for the google analytics.

    I know there’s a reason we have not had this on the multi-user blog platform; but I think there are enough people here who would love to have it, and I think WP is important enough for google to want to make us happy, and I think the people at both WP and Google are smart enough that they could find a way to make this happen.

    i love the upgrades and would love to see more. I’ve always lusted for a chart that matches the click throughs. So, you know how (from where) a person landed on a particular page and maybe also where they went from that page. As of now you can see the clicks but can’t trace the history. You know? This would be good to know b/c sometimes my blog gets hits from links on other sites but I can’t tell where, specifically, those hits are going.
