A great blog statistic tool
I have been using Typepad for almost a year now. I absolutely love the service, but there is a downside. Typepads stats are not very good. However, there is an answer... Statcounter. A friend recommended that I try it out, and after a few days of use I can say it is great.
So, whatever free tool that you are using I would put Statcounter up against it. Give it a shot, www.statcounter.com. I am still hopeful that Typepad will improve their stats, but until then, its Statcounter for me.
Here are some of the stats that it offers:
Recent Keyword Activity
Search Engine Wars
Recent Pageload Activity
Recent Visitor Activity
Lookup IP Address
