Analytics with Blogger Stats

In one of my previous posts A Rigorous Selection Procedure I had mentioned why I had chosen Blogger over Wordpress; today I feel the decision was quite correct. With amazing new features of Blogger coming out so frequently from the Template Designer to the recent Real Time Analytics, blogging is more fun now.

People who earlier had to depend on Google Analytics for viewing the number of visitors to their blog, which gives 1 day old information can now get real time statistics from their blogger stats - a new feature by Blogger. Blogger has inserted a new tab right beside the Monetize tab for you to visit the Stats section in the Blogger Draft.

The coolest thing about the new Blogger Stats is that it monitors and analyzes your visitor traffic in near-real-time. You can see which posts are getting the most visits and which sites are sending traffic to your blog right now.
For example, if a reader shares one of your blog posts on Twitter and the post is getting lots of clicks, you will see a traffic increase in Blogger Stats almost instantly, with the particular Tweet mentioning your post being identified as the traffic source. Of course, traffic data across longer time periods (day/week/month) and all-time historical data are available as well.”

In new analytics in blogspot we see the nice stats about our visitors. The default blogger stats provides information about Pageviews today, Pageviews yesterday, Pageviews last month and Pageviews all time history.

And blogger stats also provides nice graph about the traffic details as we seen in google analytics. It displays your traffic in different time like Last week, Last month etc.

Blogger stats also displays which post is doing well in terms of traffic bringing to your blog and it also shows the traffic sources where people are visiting to your blog.

The Audience tab in blogger stats displays the information about your audience like which browser they are using to view your blog and which operating system they are using and which country visitors visiting for your blog.

So here my friends, enjoy this wonderful feature by Blogger and Happy Blogging.
