Google Launches Stats for Blogger
Google has launched Stats for Blogger, a Blogger feature that was previously available in the experimental version of Blogger, Blogger in Draft. The feaure is fairly self-explanatory in that it provides Blogger users with stats about their blogs.
More specifically, Stats for Blogger provides stats like real-time tracking of each time your blog is viewed, and insights about your audience, such as top search keywords, countries, browsers, etc. The user interface comes with easy-to-read graphs and charts.
Stats for Blogger actually has some improvements over the Blogger in Draft version. For example, it includes self-view exclusion – it will exclude your own pageviews if you turn that option on. It also has more effective bot traffic filtering.
"We’ve extended our list of known ‘bots’ (the non-human visitors, such as crawlers), another measure to provide more accurate pageviews from real visitors," says Blogger’s Chang Kim.
There are also now rate-limiting visit counts from the same user and internationalization – availability in over 40 languages.
