stats Stats for Almost Everyone

Wordpress StatsWordPress has launched an official stats plugin named Automattic Stats. It a stats plugin that ties into to track your visitors and works well, but it’s not available for everyone.

One of the exclusive features is the ability to get blog and feed stats in your dashboard. Everything from the number feed reads to incoming links, keywords, clicks and top posts. A great feature that was sadly missing from anyone who installed WordPress on their own servers. That was until recently when the Automattic Stats plugin was released.

The plugin is a snap to install. Just upload the file into your plugins directory, then put in your API. Yes, you need one of those. If you use Akismet, then you already have one and don’t need another. If you don’t have one, signup for a account and they’ll give you one. After that, just sit back and wait for your stats to roll in.
