Reader Poll: Best Blog Analytics Software

Lee Odden on Dec 1st, 2008     Blogging, Online Marketing, Reader Polls

There are more companies blogging now than ever. How do you measure results? Measuring the social web is a different thing than what most web analytics packages offer. It can be easy to start a blog, but making it successful requires an excellent feedback mechanism. Blog analytics is one of those sources of feedback to know what’s working and what’s not.

We’ve listed interesting blog analytics tools of various types before, but now’s your chance to vote for (up to two) of the best software focused on measuring what happens on blogs.

What are your 2 favorite blog analytics software tools?

  • Google Analytics (67%, 169 Votes)
  • Woopra (16%, 41 Votes)
  • Feedburner Stats (16%, 40 Votes)
  • StatCounter (15%, 37 Votes)
  • Wordpress Stats (11%, 28 Votes)

Lowdown on Performancing Metrics

Performancing Metrics

Last week, Nick Wilson of Performancing mentioned their new blog metrics service has been in Alpha testing and will be released to public beta soon, as in tomorrow possibly.

I believe there’s a huge opportunity in the blog metrics and analytics space. Many blogs use free programs with limited functionality and some have been able to get into Google Analytics. However, the measurable outcomes for a content publisher, particularly a blog, are different than for an ecommerce site. Therefore Google Analytics and many other stats programs are not the best fit for blog metrics.

What options for blog focused analytics are out there?
