The 2 best WordPress statistics plugins.

I’ve been using Google Analytics and StatCounter which I began using when the blogs were on Blogger. They both leave stuff out and I’m still looking for the perfect set up.

This week I found WassUp, a WordPress plugin that gives you real time visitor information. It gives you the information StatCounter leaves out, like which spiders are visiting and what they are doing. You’ll get lots of detailed visitor information.

Even better is to also load up WP-Stats ( WP 2.3 Stats) which gives you totals by day/week/month; referrers, top posts, clicks and search engine terms.

Together they do every thing Stat Counter and Google Analytics do. Probably I’ll drop StatCounter and Analytics once I see a full month’s worth of stats from the new tools. They with out StatCounter and Analytics should also serve up pages faster.
