I love the Analytics Stats Counter Statistics plugin.This WordPress plugin for Google Analytics supports both IPv4 and IPv6 connections and comes with a simple and elegant looking analytic meter and so if you run more than one blog, then all of them can be managed under a single hood, thanks to the web application available for the plugin. Visit https://wordpress.org/plugins/stats-counter/ for more details.

Yep rightly said

Glad you liked !

Well done…Satyansh
Definitely its very keen comparison……

Thank you sir.

I was so confused when I started bloging. This list could be really helpful to a beginner.

Every beginner faces such problems. That’s why I wrote this to avoid the confusions that arises in their mind.

I’m assuming this is all about .org? I use .com and it comes with a terrible stat system. I’ve tried to replace it with Google Analytics, but to do that you have to pay for the 300 dollar a month.

I love this post. I even took down notes. This is very informative and helpful article to me. Thanks for sharing!

Glad you liked.
Keep visiting.

This is a lot to choose from. I use Jetpack but I haven’t thought about using more than one plug-in. Is it necessary? Sometimes you can get over-whelmed with the amount of plug-in choices so this list helps to narrow down the search.

Even we use jetpack. Along with jetpack you should​ use Google Analytics for depth analysis. You don’t need to use too many plugins. One is enough.

If I could ever get my views past 60 a day…..I would be interested in finding out more details on just who is visiting. Traffic is increasing a little bit at a time…is Jetpack free?

Yes it is free

This is such a nice post especially for the beginners as in the beginning we don’t have much idea about plugins and stuff like that. Thanks.

So helpful. I currently use Jetpack, wp stats and google analytic for wp but I think I’m gonna try some of the plugins you mentioned. I really love that you added what they are compatible with because the plugins themselves rarely do and the wrong pairing can mess everything up

I would recommend you, jetpack and Google analytics because they are the best and give all important information regarding traffic.

I’ve been using Jetpack for a while now, and I love it! I’ll have to look into the others, though.

It totally depends on you. Jetpack is best no doubt.

I must say I am relieved after reading this as I use most of these useful plugins for my blog. Thanks for the list!

Glad you liked. keep visiting and sharing your thoughts.

I love JETPACK – but every time I get a SITE AUDIT… My auditor always tells me to get rid of it. I won’t though because I love it so much, because it’s got a lot going on for it!

Yeah You are right.

You have got a great list of plugins. I love Jet Pack and google Analytic Dashboard. I will look into the other plugins too, they look awesome!! Thank you!!

Ana De- Jesus

I just pinned this post because I like the sound of slim stats. I use Jetpack and I like the features that it has!

Rose Sahetapy

I use Google Analystic so far but it’s quite interesting to know other statistics plugins. I bookmark your post to have a good look other statistics plugin as your recommended.

Ahtsham Rana

I am using Jetpack and Insights plugin on my blog for stats. I like the plugin by MonsterInsights, its very simple and shows the statistics elegantly. Jetpack of course is a big plugin, its statistics features are also useful.

Milton Coyne

Cool! I’m starting to enjoy learning how these statistic tools work.. i had fun exploring Google Analytics and I think i should install some of its plugins on my blog soon
thanks for this very informative post

I had no idea there were so many different ways to get stats! So far I’ve been using Google Analytics and have tried Get Clicky too. Bookmarking your post so I can come back and research each one more in-depth!

My Teen Guide

I am so confused with all these plug ins that are available to tract blog traffic and viewer activity. I hire someone to pull that information for me and I work from there. I guess I am just so technologically challenged sometimes. Thanks for the information you provided though. I will ask my tech person if we are using any of these you mentioned.

good man…i can use this as back ups!!

This is so helpful! I don’t have WordPress but I plan on switching over sometime. Very interesting!

I’m currently using Jetpack, I like it a lot as it tells me crucial information regarding security. A lot of the premium features aren’t free though, I think in the future I may pay for the other features because it’s been that good. I don’t have a lot of stats plugins on my site but I’ll look into some of the others you’ve mentioned. I prefer to use the plugins that were made by google, or wordpress because of these indie plugins may not update as frequently.

i don’t do wordpress but surely these are wonderful plugins to have , i know a few friends who use these and their result is awesome.

Chrissy Baclagan

This is a lot to choose from; I wasn’t aware that there were many out there. I’ve been using #2 for a while now, and I like it so far.
