Well, after a few weeks of searching for a free stat service or WP plugin that will suite my needs, I’ve finally settled on StatCounter. StatCounter is free, very complete as far as live stats go, and offers an invisible counter. The only downfall is that the log offered in the free package only counts up to 100 visits. That is unfortunate, but also understandable as the service is free. I’ll just use my server stats to keep track of the long-term stats. It is nice to have access to live stats once again.
You could have tried PHPLogger or AWStats instead… they are worth a little hardwork of installing and all… 🙂
Thanks, I’ve looked into both of those. My host provides Analog, which provides very complete stats every 24 hours, so I’d rather not go as far overboard as AWStats. I’m quite comfortable with StatCounter now. They offer just the right amount stats, at the right price (free), with an invisible counter.
