my blog log

Most bloggers have a way to track their stats. It’s fun to see where people are coming from, the search phrases used to find your site and the most popular pages. That’s all well and good, but do you know what outgoing links are most popular?

Me neither, until now. requires a single line of Javascript at the very bottom of your page, and it immediately begins tracking all outgoing links. It took about a minute or two to set up, and now that I can see what outgoing links people are clicking on, it gives me an idea of what people find interesting.

It’s so easy to set up and yet it’s so useful too. It’s definitely worth a try.

  1. Curses! Yet another stat system I will be checking obsessively! I really like this one. Thanks for posting it! :)

  2. Hmmm, should I put it on my individual archives too, or just my index page – what do you think?

  3. I put it on every single page on my web site. I want to know about all the outgoing links.

  4. Have you used before? If so, how does this compare. I like StatCounter, unfortunately they have a low limit on the log file for free accounts.

  5. I have used (and continue to use) StatCounter, but MyBlogLog isn’t meant to replace StatCounter, it provides additional information that you don’t usually see.

    MyBlogLog tracks outgoing links. In other words, if I link to Google in a blog entry, it tracks how many times people follow that link. You can’t see that with any of the stats packages I know of.
