      I'm using StatPress and GoogleAnalytics.

      StatPress shows 180 visitors
      GA shows only 25 visitors…

      can someone explain?

        Yes, they differ. They use different algorithms to calculate your visitors. Or maybe are you sure about the type of visitors you compared? Unique visitors and normal visitors?

      i think no need of any plugins 😀 , if you add more more plugins to your wordpress site, the site speed will reduce, just add google analytics code and get the work done 🙂

      Great post!

      1 Question!! I installed WordPress Stat and Google Analytics to my blog. Strangely I found difference between Preview Count. WordPress Stats shows more page-view than Google Analytics. Similarly Adsense Impression is same as Google Analytics but less than WP-Stats.

      Why is So? Is their anything with Cache Plugin!

        S.Pradeep Kumar

        Google Analytics visits are not proper these days, especially due to their new algorithm & content farm thing mate.

        Maybe you can disable the cache plugin and check for next day. 🙂

      Beneficial are able to also use sitemeter which isn’t a plugin though but you can easily add 2 line javascript in your blog and you’ll bring elaborate statistic report of your web log.

      Some of the plugins listed there are really familiar with me but there are some that are new to me and that are very interesting. Knowing the stats of your blog is really important to know where you have to focus and where you are already excelling.

      i check the stats on the analytics, though i don’t have the google analytics plugin for wordpress yet, but am looking foreword to use it soon. When it comes to stats i only prefer analytics and also another thing to keep in mind is that a stats plugin will always slow your blog so no point keeping more than one 🙂

      Google Analytics is just the bare minimum everybody should have on their websites. It horrifies me when I speak to people who have no clue about analytics, tracking and statistics. You should see their eyes light up when they "get" it…LOL

        yeah, the feel of the “first time analytics” experience is really cool. we all remember, don’t we, how it was to see the first of the visits come to our blogs and sites and which urls were referring and which keywords were sending the traffic… it truly lights up the eyes 🙂

      I use nStatistics 2.0 ( I like it because it have graphs with zoom function and graphs per day and hours. It is great and olso I like row visits table and crawlers statistics witch is separate then users unique visits. Other stats plugins count in same place crawlers and real visitors witch always give a false statistics.
