I've been using this killer service called 'Woopra'. It's like google analytics but you can watch what your visitors do real time and that data is held for a year. So I saw my visitor's patterns and noticed that if they look at 2 news articles they stick around but some look at one and bounce. I have on the sidebar the popular posts of the month and at the bottom related posts(its broken right now.. damn woothemes). I need some strategies to keep those bastards on site longer.
