How do I view usage statistics for my blog? Are usage statistics available?
Statistics are available! UThink is a part of the campus Urchin log analysis tool. To request access to Urchin's UThink profile, just contact Shane Nackerud
For more immediate statistics, we recommend free hit counters like Google Analytics
. These free counters are relatively easy to set up. Just follow the instructions.
If you do use one of these free hit counter programs, put the hit counter on all of your templates (Main Index, Individual, Category, Date-based, etc). Your statistics will be a better representation of how much your entire blog is used, especially concerning hits coming in from search engines like Google.
Setting up google analytics on your blog
In order to get analytics working properly, be sure to follow the directions on http://code.google.com/apis/analytics/docs/tracking/gaTrackingSite.html#singleSubDirectory
. If you are using asynchronous tracking, add
to your tracking code as explained in the link above.
