10 Best Statistics Plugin For WordPress

The official WordPress Blog Stats plugin makes integrating W3Counter with a WordPress self-hosted blog easy. The plugin adds W3Counter’s real-time stats to the WordPress admin dashboard, and adds a sidebar widget for integrating the tracking code into the blog’s theme.

7. Pixelstats WordPress plugin


10 Best Statistics Plugin For WordPress

Count every viewer and every page impression for each article, no matter how and where it is read: pixelstats tracks views of each blog post or page, not only on a single article page but also on every other page where the complete article is shown, i.e. the blog front page, category pages, search result page, archive pages and even RSS feeds.

Normal statistic tools count visitors and page impressions per actual page or URL, i.e. an article view is only counted, when your visitor clicks on the article’s permalink. This doesn’t make sense for blogs, because many of your visitors read articles on your blog’s front page or in full content RSS feeds.

This plugin does not supply endless features to analyze your visitor’s behavior, it just gives you an accurate impression, which of your articles is viewed how many times.

8. Slimstat Plugin for WordPress

SlimStat is a simple but powerful web analytics program written in PHP. Get up and running in seconds. Drill-down and filter data in any way you choose. You can jump through a calendar and compare results with any past day, week, month or year. Zip and other file tracking is also possible. There is one great thing about this one of its kind WP Statistics plugin, there is an iPhone-optimised interface available if you are willing to check your stats from your iPhone.

9. Search Meter

If you have a Search box on your blog, Search Meter automatically records what people are searching for — and whether they are finding what they are looking for. Search Meter’s admin interface shows you what people have been searching for in the last couple of days, and in the last week or month. It also shows you which searches have been unsuccessful. If people search your blog and get no results, they’ll probably go elsewhere. With Search Meter, you’ll be able to find out what people are searching for, and give them what they want by creating new posts on those topics.

10. PopuList for WordPress

  1. these are great plugins, thanks for sharing.

  2. Nice post bro..I am using Jetpack for my site.

  3. Bharadwaj says:

    Hey nice post you left web ninja stats (Google analytics) i personally recommend it but nice post.

  4. To be frank this is a great post. I made a wordpress blog. But I am bit struggling with it yet. So these plugins will be helpful to me too.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this, I’ll bookmark this for further referrence.

    Good luck

  5. Awesome list Ammar. I saw your Alexa rank today and i am really impressed that you are going very well. keep it up.

  6. I have Jetpack and Kstats installed on my blog, and they give very different numbers, so I have to conclude they are measuring different things. One weekend, Jetpack told me I got no visitors at all, while Kstats said that I got more than 30 both days. Since I had some people sign up for a class that weekend, I have to conclude that the Jetpack number (0) was wrong.

    I would definitely like to learn what is going on here.

    • May be Kstats is catching spiders and bots too. I am currently using Statpress and Jetpack both of them shows different stats but I think jetpack is best!

    • I had to uninstall Jetpack because a recent update to Jetpack locked me out of the dashboard completely. I was able to recover by using FTP to go in and rename the Jetpack plugin directory so that the WP loader couldn’t find it, which allowed me to log in again. While I was logged in, I used FTP to rename the Jetpack directory back to its original name so that I could delete it using the dashboard. Since then, I had deleted Jetpack from every WP site I own.

      I still have no clue why the numbers reported by Jetpack and Kstats don’t seem to have any correlation at all.

  7. Why did I never see WordPress.com Official Stats Plugin in my wordpress.com blog? I always found jetpack.

  8. But the stats shown by jetpack is in consistent with the data found og google analytice, which is the accurate data?!

    • Ammar Ali says:

      Jetpack shows total Pageviews while analytics shows all info like visitors, pageviews, unique visitors :D

  9. blogodream says:

    i .like this stats plugin, which one is not heavy for blog?

  10. It appears that jetpack counts your own visits though, unless you ask it to not count logged in users…which could be bad…
    Know which plugin would NOT include your own views?
    Thanks a million!

  11. The Jetpack dont show the real stats ……the real traffic would be half of it or even less…

  12. I am using StatCounter presently. Now, i am going to use JetPack as per your recommendation. Hope for the best. :)

  13. I use nStatistic and that seems pretty easy to use as well, strongly recommend for everyone.

    Thank you for the list, at least I know there are somany great plugins available – Ferb

  14. Don Juane says:

    Anyone know (care) what info is being communicated back to wordpress with the jetpack plug-in?

    • Ammar Ali says:

      Sorry? I did not get you! Please explain.. :)

    • Don Juane says:

      How can people continue to use and praise Google Analytics and other “free apps” that are not really free? You feed the gravy of your website traffic and all of its usage stats back to the mother ship and they give you a brief snapshot of what’s going on. Wow, thanks a lot, Google! What they in turn are doing with it, well actually you have no clue other than knowing they are making money with it, and at the very minimum selling your info to advertisers. It’s time to understand that Google Apps are NOT free apps and you are giving away a constant stream of information of everything you and your clients/customers are doing as a free gift to Google, wrapped in a nice package and all for mostly their own benefit. So the free lunch is in reality, Google’s. If you want stats, use one of the packages that does not funnel all your and your customer’s activities back to some distant mother ship in the sky where you have no idea what they are going with your information (but you have a pretty good idea). The web has turned into a lapdog for Google and their tracking machine. How many business models are there that you know of that constantly give away free stuff? Not many. Wise up world, there is NO FREE LUNCH. Track your own web statistics and leave Google and other world-wide scanning machine out of the picture.

  15. after reviewing I still vote for google analytic for tracking your site traffic.

  16. Remarkable issues here. I’m very glad to look your article. Thank you a lot and I’m
    looking ahead to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?

  17. #2 Statpress reloaded hasn’t been updated in 4 years. Scary.

  18. i liked statcounter and jetpack, both are enriched with required detail and statcounter best option is for exit link activity that you can check adsence clicks…..

  19. I am using Jetpack for my site but sometimes I am also checking my stats via awstat and I get different numbers everytime. One day Jetpack was showing no visit to a post on my blog but the same day I got two comments submitted on the same post. I was really surprised to see that how this could be possible. One thing I can assure that the comments could not come from the bots because I have already used Captcha everywhere. Tell me if anyone can guess the truth.

  20. From all the list you have given me i think jetpack is the best plugin to use because of awesome features i will recommend that only…

  21. Jet Pack is awesome. I really love it

  22. Imran khan says:

    Well done…Ammar
    Definitely its very keen comparison……
    your articles are great….I book marked ur web page……

  23. nice article but I am confused ! JetPack ot statpress.. what you use ?

  24. Thanks a lot Amar.
    Do you know a way to let my Authors see the stats also?

  25. Thank you! I was searching for one or two plugins because Jetpack is eating a lot of memory and my host provider said i have to delete it :(

  26. Alphonsus Isusu says:

    Thanks so much for revealing this plugin.

    I installed the Jetpack, and after installing successfully, activate it on my wordpress. Askimet thereafter instructed I disable it or input my Askimet key. I have no problem with that…

    But it’s just that there’s no provision made for me to put the key before or after installing. So what I did is to deactivate it.

    What do you think I should do?

    Thank you!

    • Ammar Ali says:

      Use Jetpack and for protecting blog from spam comment use “GASP” plugin, you can also try commmentluv premium :)

      Let me know if you have any other issue?

  27. Great post Ammar. I use Google Analytics and have just installed Jetpack…

    One stat I need for my KPI’s is a monthly total of blog views (so reporting on Posts and not Pages). I can’t seem to do this with either of those, is there another plugin you can recommend?


  28. Hi, I am looking for a snippet/plugin for authors to see the number of visitors ot their posts.
    Do you know any?

  29. sure – I found personal-statistics-for-authors plugin, but it is not what I expected…

  30. Personally, Jetpack works very well especially for a plugin. However, the worst part about it is when it loads up, it brings tons of ‘website speed issue’ which could affect your site speed. The changes are small so at times, you might not notice it.

    Nonetheless, if I have to choose, Jetpack is definitely having my vote for this.

    Thanks for sharing mate :)

  31. Hi dear,

    Is there any plugin which counts unique post views. Because I want to track unique post views so that I can pay my content writer for the unique post views per month. In short I want to monetize my content writer work.

    I am using Post Profit Stats but it is not working fine.

  32. thx for the post! In your opinion, what is the best plug-in that allow me to send a weekly report to a selected set of e-mail address?

    • Ammar Ali says:

      Well, I don’t think so there is any plugin to email you stats weekly.

      Why not use access stats manually everyday or once a week?

      • This is not laziness :-) . Just want to keep a couple of friends aware of what is going on.

        Maybe I should consider the mail reports of google analytics

  33. Thanks for sharing this great list of statistics plugins. I tried both StatPress Reloaded and Jetpack but Jetpack is showing much less daily pageviews in comparison to StatPress Reloaded. Though Alexa Rank is still rising. Is it something wrong with any of the plugin or what? Any idea?
    Thanks in advance :-)
