Several people have been asking me lately what I use to measure traffic statistics here on One Man’s Blog. Well, in addition to occasionally downloading my server logs and running some software on them to see the official stats, I use Performancing P-Metrics whenever I want to get a quick glance.
Frankly P-Metrics has the most comprehensive feature set around and will allow you to learn more about a site’s visitors than any other package that I am aware of. This includes everything from stats by page, referrer, search words, and even a wickedly cool real time monitor! So I whipped up a demo video to give you a glimpse behind the scenes here at OMB.
pMetrics offers free service for up to 3 web sites and 1,000 page views per day, per site. This will serve the needs of the vast majority of Web sites. They also have two levels of premium service which get you more sites, more features, and higher traffic levels – starting at less than $2/month.
When you first register, you automatically receive 21 days of premium service for FREE! This gives you a chance to try it out and fall in love with some of the features that you won’t find anywhere else.
I’ve also attached a partial chart that shows how P-Metrics stacks up against the competition. It’s pretty impressive.
Finally, here is a video I whipped up of a screen capture of the stats from One Man’s Blog. Its a 10 minute walk through all of the detailed reports that come with the service. You’ve got nothing to lose, so give it a try.
Also, don’t miss my video of What Happens When You Hit the Digg Homepage. It’s a peek at the spy function during a Digging.
