How can i see where visitors came from?
Hi. I wonder if there is a way to see where visitors come to my blog from…as most of the counters available are java-based when it comes to see the “comes from” sections. The stats at “referring links” of wordpress seems to be what i’m looking for but i think they are incomplete (or unprecise) beacuse i submitted my site to stats-counting sites like statcounter.com and i can see that is no referring link from them, and i’m sure they visited my site. And even more, at referring links appear sites that i never submitted my blog to. :( Does anyone know any external stats counter that i can use on wordpress to see where people came from ? Or is there a way to fix the wordpress’s stat counter ?
The blog I need help with is archidrawing.wordpress.com.
There are TONS of external stat counters that work here. Check http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com for a list.
Yes, i saw them but none is for me :( i need to see where visitors come from. And without to require java :((
Yeah, sometimes the best thing to do is drop a needle onto a map and smile :)
Hey, i like the Feedjit Live Traffic on your site ! but when i attempt to insert the Feedjit code in my blog it will cut the code to “Feedjit Live Blog Stats” just as i click on Save :( so there is that text written on the sidebar only :( how did you do?
The ‘live’ component does not work as it requires Flash or Java I can’t recall the full script. What I have is the following that requires manual browser refresh but launches a separate window when clicked where the Live stats will work in a separate session.

Hope this helps.
Another alternative is clustrmaps. Creating your ClustrMap account is easy. You simply supply the url for your site and an email address (for receipt of your password for signing into Admin), and get a copy of the code to paste into a text widget on your site. http://www.clustrmaps.com/index.htm
TT’s site, which I pointed you to in the beginning, has covered MANY stats systems that tell you where you readers are coming from.
well.. thanks for your answers.. it seems that feedjit fellas adapt the no-java script to make the “comes from” unavailable :( .. wordpress.com is cursed
I can see the countries that my readers are coming from using feedjit. I can see which operating system and browser they are using. And I can see which post they clicked into.
I can see the location of the ISP that my readers are coming from using whosamunus. And I can see which post they clicked into.
And using clustrmaps I can see which country my visitors come from.
Perhaps your would prefer to use sitemeter or statcounter or statcounter. For brief reviews see here > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2009/10/02/visitor-tracking-on-wordpress-com-blogs/
Exactly what information do you want that you cannot obtain by using the wordpress stats and these third party visitor tracking programs?
first of all i miss seeing where the visitors click on after the visit. On feedjit at “Long description” it writes the location (City) landed on and then it writes the root address :( not where they go. I only experimented this on myself.
Regarding sitemeter and statcounter, they are incomplete ! because sitemeter cannot block more than two IPs and its gonna counter every visit of my own because i have dynamic ip, and statcounter is not showing me where visitors click but i can block all my ips.
So right in this moment i use 4 counters, i need each one to show me a particular stat!
Feedjit – to easily see who and when came on my site.
Wordpress stats – to see the referral link.
Sitemeter – to see where are they clicking after they visit the root page.
Statcounter – the real counter that blocks all my ips.
I dont want my blog to become full of counters that’s why I want to use only one counter to replace them all.
And how is your feedjit showing u where they clicked into? mine doesnt work and only shows my blog link and i clicked on some articles… you can see my feedjit log here http://live.feedjit.com/live/7ab25c0b1c34ae3a3ad910acd4b6c3e8/0/
If i solve the problem with feedit i will dismiss sitemeter :D
i like the flag counter shimworld mentioned as i’m curious about where the readers are from.
but, is it possible just to see the statistics myself without displaying it on the blog? i found the graphics of that count chart quite ugly and i quite like to keep the numbers private.
is this possible? if not, is there any other site other than flagcounter.com?
The answer to your question is “no”. Unless the code is on the blog the visitors cannot be tracked and that’s the same in all cases no matter which stats program one maybe referring to.
can i be iset to only appear in a specifc page of the blog rather than appearing in every single post?
Why on earth do we need to check out your blog? All of these are well known to us.
I have reviewed all these third party stats counters. I no longer run feedjit on my blog. It’s intrusive and I don’t need to know IPs of my visitors at all. I used feedjit, flag counter, clustrmaps, etc. long enough to determine which counties my visitors were coming from so I could set up translation services with the required languages. Now I have a translation page and a translation widget so I removed them.
