Blog Statistics: Pro Blog Stats WordPress Plugin Update

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Google+ 0 LinkedIn 0 Email -- Buffer 0 0 Flares ×

A little while ago I mentioned we (Joel and I) were creating our very first WordPress plugin.

A blog statistic plugin that gathers all the different stats (over 50) required in order for you to monitor the success of your blog.

I also mentioned we were close to launching.

Well…we thought we were!

But with more testers on board we found a few more problems and we are now rectifying them.

We could have launched as we were but going live when you know there are bugs in the software is just not right.

Can you imagine the support headache?

Our reputation would have be ruined…well any little reputation we have!

So we are doing more testing, more bug fixing plus we are adding Aweber stats into the plugin as well.

Aweber was one of the main stats we wanted to include within the plugin when we first started the build (over 6 months ago now!) but they did not have any automatic way of capturing their statistics.


…Aweber have announced they now have an API interface. That means we can now include Aweber stats into our Pro Blog Stats plugin…automatically.

That’s going to take a little extra work but we are close to launching…honest!

I shall keep you updated on progress.

    Your WordPress plugin is a worthwhile endeavor, if you need another tester, just shoot me an email.

    Hi Andrew,
    So glad I came across this post. I have been on the look out for a plug-in that will track all my Blog stats. Can’t believe Aweber have only just come out with an API key. That must have made your life easier.
    Look forward to the launch, any ideas when.

    I have first time read about ” Aweber ” and have curiosity to know more about it.

  11. Jacob November 23, 2010 at 2:45 am #

    Hi Andrew,

    I’m glad that you’re developing a blog tracking plugin. I’m sure it will be a big help to me and to lot of bloggers around. Will surely wait for your update.

    Got to love the bugs coming up delaying your launch Andrew – **Curses**. Good to see that you guys are ironing it out though. If you have any review copies, I’d love to test it out and promote it for you guys!

      It would be crazy for us to launch when we know there are bugs.

      I know many would just to get it out and iron them out in the next version but our approach is to get it as bug free as possible.

      Perhaps finding more bugs were fate as it coincided with the Aweber API annoucment.

        We have to ensure there are no bugs in the software.

        If we were to issue a plugin with major errors and bugs our reputation would be ‘shot to pieces’.


        P.S I shall blog about the fact when the plugin is ready

    This is really interesting, especially with the Aweber implementation. Waiting to see it “Live”. Hope everything runs fine and you release it soon, keep up the good work !

  15. Adam June 8, 2011 at 6:50 am #

    I have stopped using Aweber 2 years ago, not as it is no good, but due to my little usage per month. Wonder if this plugin works for other email optin service with API ?

    I’m always looking for good WP plugins and this one seems like a winner. I like blog statistic plugin that gathers a large variety of stats. It hard to come across plugins like this.

  17. Albert July 8, 2011 at 3:51 pm #

    Hi, your post and all comments above sounds great. When you will launch your plugin (sorry if it ask many-many times)? Then, is it have a free version? 🙂

  18. Andrew July 10, 2011 at 4:27 pm #

    Andrew, thanks a lot for this plugin man, I really like it.

    Hi Andrew,

    i am also looking for good and of course FREE version- WP Statistis plugin, and currently using Statpress. If i have the chance, i would like to test yours.

    Appreciate that.


  20. Gary Ashton September 15, 2011 at 12:48 pm #

    I would love to see what Aweber is capable of. Seems like a pretty good plugin, will you keep us posted? I definitely want to hear more about it, I can probably use it.

  21. casey October 31, 2011 at 12:00 pm #

    I have to say that Aweber still has the best delievery rate of all the autoresponder services. I have been using it for around 8 years now and tried others and been disappointed.

  22. Joe Anderson November 22, 2011 at 8:20 am #

    When are we going to see this plugin now? It sounds great!

    Enjoyed your update on Pro Blog Stats WordPress Plugin. I am not into internet marketing; but, merely looking for ways to popularize my new site on anxiety attacks. Your plugin sounds like it will provide my with the data I need to monitor and improve my blog. Thank you 🙂
