Have you checked the Blogger dashboard lately? I did not discover the "Stats" tab until recently. It has been a few months of tracking and following, but I have come to rely on it religiously. It isn't the most comprehensive analysis of your blog, but it has some very unique abilities.
For one, the stats will show you which url, webpage, or website is sending traffic to your blog. How many times your posts are being viewed for the day, week, month and even now, which is the "immediate" state. It gives you Stats of your pages, if you have any. This is a unique option, since the pages are often the tabs on your navigation menu and it isn't a post that someone would normally search for on the web, and it is an ability which is only available through Blogger Stats.
The Stats' results are also consistent, or you could say it goes hand in hand with the new gadget option in Blogger for “Most Popular” posts. If you set it to be for the last seven days, 30 days, or all time, you can see that the Stats page not only show you the same results, but also will show you how many views the post received by week, month and all time.
I have enjoyed following the Stats pages tremendously, because it gives me an idea of what my readers are attracted to on my blog. Another nice option of Stats is the ability to see which words are being searched for your blog. It is user friendly and right to the point, which fits a busy person’s lifestyle nicely. If you use the Stats page and have tips to share please comment below.
