    If you're using some free stuff like wordpress, blogspot, weebly etc., how do you track the traffic to it? There's a bunch of free hit counters etc. out there and I'm wondering what people use. Don't really want to use google analytics.

    I found WP Stats to be pretty good >> http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stats/

    I don't like using Google Analytics for 'ALL' my blogs because I don't want Google to link those blogs together. After tons of test with dozens of other stat programs I found WP Stats does a pretty good job.
