If you have been running your site for awhile, then you know how important it is to track your visitors with some sort of web analytics. Knowing where your visitors are coming from, and what keywords are bringing yout the most traffic is essential to ensure a growing blog.
Google Analytics is the best known web analytics software out there. In the past, this is what I used on all my sites. It’s free and very powerful. However, I always felt it was lacking in many ways in terms of ease of use and displaying my data how I wanted to look at it.
I’ve also tested a few Google analytics alternatives like Piwik, Woopra and Mint, but when I came across Clicky several months ago, I fell in love right away. Not only does it address all the issues I had with Google Analytics, but it is a pleasure to use as well.
