Which statistics plugin to chose?

  • …there’s so many! Can’t figure out which one to chose. I realize it all depends on my needs but…well…the usual…referrers (to track down people hotlinking)…hits etc. etc.

    Any suggestions….I’m kind of a n00b with this, so something very easy to implement would be preferred.

    Thx. 🙂

  • I use a combination of 3 different ones. I don’t see why you can’t install more than one at the same time.

    I use these:




    I think if I had to pick one I’d go with cgReferrer only it doesn’t quite show daily hit count as readable as I’d like.

    Excellent…thx….I’ll give ’em a shot.

    Essentially, the developer of BaStats said he is no longer going to develop BaStats, and it does have a little more developing to go. I’ve been moving away from using BaStats.

    It really does depend on SPECIFIC needs.

    CG-Referrer is, by its name, highly focused on referrer tracking. But, it has expanded over the past two years… 😉 The latest version (sitting on my machine, and two ‘testers’ out there…) has separate pages showing recent visitors, bots, searches, feed-reading, and basic statistics. Plus, it has built-in optional referrer-‘bouncing’ to combat referrer (and comment) spammers, using some heuristic analysis plus a few different blacklists (sites, keywords, user agents, and IPs). Probably one missing thing is a ‘popular pages’ breakdown, which wouldn’t be too hard based on daily or weekly limiting…

    If you know what are your top few things you are looking for, I can tell you whether CG-Referrer is well-suited for your needs or whether you might want to evaluate other options first…
