Typepad 101: Two More Easy Options for Visitor Tracking and Stats

July 22, 2015

Earlier this month, we shared an in-depth look at Google's Analytics service for visitor tracking and site stats. If you checked that out and that service doesn't quite hit the mark, we have a couple more suggestions for tracking.

First is Typepad's built-in Stats. This feature comes already set up with your blog - you don't have to do anything to activate it or use it. Simply click on the Stats link from your Dashboard or on the Overview tab if you're already working with the blog.

Typepad Stats

At the top, you'll notice a handy summary with the pageviews for the day, lifetime pageviews and info about social media traffic. Under that is a graph that shows daily traffic for the last 30 days. You can use the little Edit button to choose the number of days to show. And then under that is a list referrers to the blog. That will show the page the referrer linked to and the referring URL if that's available.

If you're looking for more details about your visitors, check out Clicky. This service has both free and paid subscription options, offers a ton of metrics, and has a slick and easy to use interface.They even offer an affiliate program that you can easily opt into.

Clicky provides the code to add to your blog to start tracking right after you register. Just copy the code and paste it into an Embed your own HTML module in your sidebar.
