Blog Statistics: Pro Blog Stats WordPress Plugin

Most bloggers love stat watching, right?

We want to know if we are getting more traffic, backlinks, opt-ins….

Tracking your blog performance is very important and is one way to monitor the success of your blog.

But what do you monitor?

Amount of traffic?

Where does the traffic come from?

Number of new visitors?

Bounce Rate?

RSS Subscribers?

Number of Comments?

Backlinks?

Social Bookmarking Numbers?

Google Page Rank?

Pages Indexed?

Alexa Ranking?

Others?

Or a myriad of the above?

But the BIG PROBLEM WITH MONITORING STATISTICS IS…

…it takes too much time to gather and monitor all the different statistics available.

Google Analytics, Yahoo, Compete, Alexa, Quantcast, Klout, Twitter, Facebook, FeedBurner…the list is endless.

Imagine logging into all these different accounts each time you wanted to monitor your blog statistics?

Guess what?

Some blog owners do…numerous times a day!

Over the last few months Joel (aka Blog Tech Guy) and I have been creating and testing a brand new WordPress plugin to solve this time consuming problem.

Let us introduce to you…Pro Blog Stats.

We’ve gathered input from numerous bloggers.

We’ve had numerous testers.

We’ve had constructive feedback and we are now close to launching Pro Blog Stats.

Why use Pro Blog Stats Plugin?

  • The set-up of the plugin takes a few minutes and needs to be set-up only once
  • It takes less than 6 seconds to grab over 50 different stats including all the ones mentioned above
  • It displays all the stats in one place…your WordPress dashboard
  • There is no server or hosting overhead. The only time it uses any resources is during the 6 seconds it takes to grab the stats and display them
  • You get to see the trends of all the different stats over time

As I say above, we are close to launching and I’ll be back very soon telling you a little more about Pro Blog Stats.

If you want to know more now, please ask in the comments below.

    I’m really big on keeping up with my stats so I’m always on the lookout for new ways to keep up with my blog. Looking forward to the launch of your plugin.

    • Andrew October 26, 2010 at 12:29 pm #

      Thanks, Richard. We aim to launch very soon.

    I check my traffic stats too much!!! This plugin sounds hopeful. Will be interested in the feedback once it’s available Andrew.

    I haven’t been watching my stats very closely lately. Just enough to make sure there aren’t any slow motion disasters occurring.

    That said, this looks pretty useful. Especially having different stats collected together.

    Looking forward to seeing what you guys have in store.

    • Andrew October 26, 2010 at 12:28 pm #

      Thanks, Dave.

      We feel there are a lot of bloggers who watch their stats (and so we should – just not too often!).

      But Joel and I were fed up with having to keep going to different accounts to see them…hence the birth of this plugin.

  4. Jason October 25, 2010 at 10:13 pm #

    Wow, this looks very impressive guys. Can’t wait for it. This is particularly useful to me because my site is quit frankly, all about stats and seeing whether a particular effort is working.

    Thanks.

    • Andrew October 26, 2010 at 12:29 pm #

      Great, Jason.

      I hope the plugin really helps you out.

    This sounds like a great tool. Will not only save time but will help any blog owner focus his efforts. I’m looking forward to the launch. And, from taking your blogging course, I know anything that you guys produce will be of value. Thank you for your ongoing help and support.

    • Andrew October 26, 2010 at 7:25 pm #

      Great, Randy. Our main aim is to help bloggers progress and also save some time!

    Sounds interesting… I’m happy with Google Analytics right now, but could use a real-time analytics system instead of one with a delay

    • Andrew October 27, 2010 at 8:18 am #

      Henway

      It’s not going to be real time. It gathers over 50 different stats from numerous other applications.

    Awesome , the plugin will solve all the “problems” ! thank You !!

    • Andrew October 27, 2010 at 8:19 am #

      Rahul,

      Solve all the problems?

      Let’s hope so!

    Seem to be very handy plugin to know our statistics.

    However i prefer checking up on it in Analytics instead.

    I know in dashboard it is more handy and fast, but i am trying to use less plugins at the moment.

    Thanks for the review, Andrew!

    • Andrew October 27, 2010 at 8:23 am #

      Kimi,

      Why would you prefer to check up in Analytics when you haven’t seen our plugin yet?

      Why are you using less plugins?

      I assume because of load speed?

      If so, you may wish to see my response to Dwight above.

        Andrew,

        I have tested myself, using more plugins can slow down our site, especially those which have javascript.

        I have many ads in my site LOL so i want to speed it up a bit.

        I use pagespeed addon to see my site’s loading speed.

        Cheers.

        • Andrew October 27, 2010 at 10:51 am #

          Kimi,

          I understand what you are saying but this plugin doesn’t use any resources until you generate the stats and it only takes 6 seconds.

          After the 6 seconds…that’s it…it goes idle.

          Andrew

          • Kimi October 27, 2010 at 12:07 pm #

            Andrew,

            I will look into it later, and will review it too,

            Thanks.

  9. Dwight October 27, 2010 at 1:36 am #

    Thanks, this plugin sounds very useful Andrew. I love things like this that give you a dashboard sanpshot of what’s going on. Will follow your updates on this.

      Dwight,

      That’s exactly what we felt and hence the creation.

      The other we like it that is takes no ‘server power’ from YOUR hosting…other that the 6 seconds of time it takes to run the report.

      So the fact you are adding another plugin makes no difference to your blog / site load speed.

    Sounds pretty cool. I’m always interested in looking into new products and test new things for my personal site 75dayJourney where I am posting daily as I start a successful internet business over the next 75 days!

    checking your stats often to make sure you know where your visitors are coming to you from is a great piece of marketing strategy.

    • Andrew October 28, 2010 at 8:43 am #

      Biodun,

      Totally agree!

      Andrew

  12. Andrew Crook October 27, 2010 at 6:29 pm #

    Does this plugin slow down your site in anyway? I use awstats and google analytics i don’t really want to add more code into the loop.

    • Andrew October 28, 2010 at 8:45 am #

      Andrew

      It doesn’t. It’s just idle until you use it to generate your stats report…which takes 6 seconds.

      Andrew

    I used to run WP-Statspress on my sites until my hosting provided told me to remove it as it was creating too many additional database requests. Which makes some sense. Installing Google Analytics was a better ideal from a stats perspective and a server resource aspect.

    • Andrew October 30, 2010 at 6:40 am #

      DeMaurice

      Our plugin covers Google Analytics and numerous other stats and takes no database requests…until you run the report for 6 seconds.
