I’m always on the prowl for blogging tips and blogging tools. Lorelle’s post (see her quote below) caught my attention and an earlier Drupal announcement came to mind as well.
When I checked the site out I was impressed with the live tracking and web statistics capabilities of woopra and I’m sure other wordpress.com bloggers will want to install this system as much as I do.
Woopra’s revolutionary server architecture, combined with its intuitively designed client software, enables seamless tracking of visitors. Webmasters can track over 40 different statistical events and analytics. Never before has so much information been instantaneously available to Webmasters.
Most analytical and site statistics are updated once a day at the least, or several times during the day. With Woopra, you get live track of visitors coming and going and moving through your site. You get the stats now.
Woopra has so many features it’s difficult to share them all. Here is a short list. Use the link above for details.
