If you have a blog, you’ll want to keep track of how many visits you are getting to your site. There are many ways to do this, including Google Analytics (which I also highly recommend), but for simplicity, I like Sitemeter….
A quick peek will tell you how many visits you have had, how many page views–and what the referring page was. There are a number of things you can track with Sitemeter, including what countries have been visiting you lately. The free version works well for me and we use it on Freelance-Zone, as well as some of our other sites.
