Statcounter Can Work Great With Weblogs
By MortazaviBlog on Sep 21, 2005
Statcounter provides (and temporarily keeps) some very useful information. For example, it can tell me, through its "recent visitor activity" tab who has recently visited my weblog, when they started their visit, how long they spent, how many entries they viewed, which browser and operating systems they used.
Since I don't have administrative rights over the weblog server which I use, Statcounter gives me some limited but useful information, even if the buffer for the statistics it collects is quite small for all data other than the hit count. For example, I was able to use Statcounter to discover a few things about an anonymous commentator on my last entry.
Clustrmap is also a great tool. That's the provider of the map you see on the left bar of this weblog.
Finally, for a relatively good blogging environment where you can express some of your views without worrying as much about what you might or might not be able to write, you should probably try blogspot's eBlogger.
