WassUp Real Time Analytics

Analyze your visitors traffic with real-time statistics, a lot of chronological information, charts, a sidebar widget.

WassUp is a WordPress plugin to track your visitors in real-time. It does in-depth visitor tracking and comes with a very readable and fancy admin console that gives you detailed views into almost everything your users are doing on your site. It is very useful for SEO and statistics maniacs who want to see accurate, up-to-date stats displayed in a straightforward, easy to understand manner.

The aim of WassUp is the timely knowledge of what your visitors do when they surf your site. It is not intended to show grouped statistics over preset, long-term time periods like visitors per month, pageviews per quarter, and so on (there are many others tools to better gain that, like Google Analytics). WassUp's flexible, easy-to-read views are the best for learning the details about your visitors' latest activities. With it's customizable filters and search capability, you can drill deeply into the data to learn even more details about specific visitors, visitor types, etc.

Detailed Specs:

WassUp comes with 4 admin screen panels for viewing your visitors' activities and for customizing those views

  • There is a fancy "Visitors Details" screen that lets you to see almost everything about your visitors and what they do on your site and that includes search capability, view filters, plus a chart and top stats summary.
  • There is an ajax "Spy View" screen (like Digg Spy) that lets you monitor your visitors live, with optional geolocation on a Google!maps world map.
  • There is a "Current Visitors Online" screen that shows a summary of your online visitors in real-time.
  • There is an "Options" panel with lots of customizable settings for WassUp.

There is a nice Dashboard widget that shows a line chart of hits over time (24 hours default) and a count of current visitors online and their latest activities.

WassUp comes with two useful sidebar Widgets that lets you display your site's latest data to your visitors

  • The "Online" widget shows counts of current visitors online and includes options to display logged-in usernames and country flags.
  • The "Top Stats" widgets lets you display trending or timed top items about your site based on the latest stats. You can list top search engine keywords, top external referrers, top url requests, top articles, top browsers, top OSes, and more.
  • The widgets are fully customizable.

WassUp's advanced tracking features can:

  • Distinguish registered users from anonymous visitors, and administrators from regular users.
  • Identify and label new browsers, robots, and feed readers, heuristically.
  • Track page requests that generate 404 (not found) redirects.
  • Detect some spiders that pretend to be regular visitors/browsers.
  • Expose malware activity - including spam, hack attempts, script injection, and other exploit attempts.

WassUp works with two anti-spam functions to detect and omit (if you want) referrers spammers and comment spammers. It also detects and records unauthorized users' login attempts, script injection, and other exploit attempts. Please note that WassUp only identifies exploit attempts. It does not block them or otherwise protect your site. You need a separate security plugin for that.

For people with database size limitations, WassUp has a few options to manage the database table growth: you can empty it; you can delete old records automatically; and you can set a warning notice for when it exceeds a preset size limit.

WassUp gives a detailed chronology of your hits with a lot of information for each single user session:

  • ip / hostname
  • referrer
  • spider
  • search engines used
  • keywords
  • SERP (search engine result page)
  • operating system / language / browser
  • pages viewed (chronologically and per user session)
  • complete user agent
  • name of user logged in
  • name of comment's author
  • spam and hack attempts

Wassup admin console has flexible view filters that show:

  • records by time period
  • record count per page
  • records by entry type (spider, users logged in, comment authors, search engine, referrer)
  • search by keyword
  • expand/collapse informations (with ajax support)
  • usage chart (Google!chart)
  • top stats lists with aggregate data (top queries, requests, os, browsers)

There are many options to customize how WassUp tracks and displays data:

  • Enable/Disable recording (tracking)
  • Screen refresh frequency (minutes)
  • Screen resolution (browser width)
  • User permission levels
  • Top stats selections
  • Record or not logged-in users
  • Record or not spiders and bots
  • Record or not exploit attempts
  • Record or not comment spammers
  • Record or not referrer spammers
  • registered users to exclude from recording
  • IP or hostname to exclude from recording
  • Email alert for table growth
  • Auto delete of old records



  • WassUp is incompatible with static page caching plugins such as "WP Super-Cache".
