WordPress Admin Pages

How often do you check your sites stats?  Do you know who is visiting you or what links they are clicking on? I find the administration pages very useful especially when I have guest bloggers. If you are writing your blog because you want people to read it, then you need to check those admin pages to get the whole story of your blog. I could tell that on Saturday, February 6th, most of the people who read JeLisa’s guest post came from her site. The rest came from comments I left on blogs who had similar subject matter as JeLisa’s.

Unfortunately these are not my blogs stats.
These screenshots were made in December 2009 and January 2010

The referrers section lists other blogs and web sites that link to your blog. A view is counted as a referrer when a visitor of the other site clicks a link and lands on a URL of your blog.

Top Posts and Pages
This section of stats will list the Posts and Pages which have received the most views. A view is only counted for a post or page when the permalink URL is visited. For example, if a visitor reads a post titled “Hello World” while viewing the home page of your blog, the view will not be counted towards the post, only towards total views.
