Bringing Up Blog

Dear Food S'cool,

I am the proud parent of a beautiful new bouncing baby food blog. Little Blog Appetit still has a lot to learn and so do I!

I would appreciate any comments and feedback on your experiences or suggestions for the following:

1. Visit counters -- Blogger doesn't offer this but they seem to have a tie in with several services that do. Is there any one service you'd recommend? It would be great to see exactly how many people are visiting my blog, but I don't want to load people with cookies or worse. Is there a downside?

2. Technical issues -- All this is new to me and this talk of RSS feeds, link backs, pings and the like is very confusing. Is there a resource that can explain what these are and how and why to use them?

3. Experience with moving from Blogger to MyBlogSite -- I lust (blush) after category archives. It looks like MyBlogSite provides those. Does anyone have experience with MyBlogSite and Blogger who can give me an idea of the pluses and minuses of the different services? Is there another free and easy service you'd recommend instead?

Thank you for all your help.

Blog Appetit

Congrats on your new blog.

I personally don't like visitor counters. They don't tell you anything since the lone number isn't a realistic count of who's reading you. What you really want is a service that gives you real stats - how many pages your serving, how many unique visitors, and where those people are coming from.

There are several services you can just plug into your page, but I'm not familiar with any of them since my stats are all built-in services. There's lots of other helpful people here that will probably have answers to this and the other questions.

Good luck!

I use statcounter, but I also block myself from showing up on other peoples stats, so I know it isnt that accurate. (Did that make sense? LOL)

Ditto to what Rachael said - Statcounter is free and I've had very little issues with them. I did set up the blocking cookie so my site does not count my logins. I think sitemeter is another popular free counter.

I've been using Sitemeter on my blogs. It's free (if you display a tiny logo on your page) and provides all sorts of data: entry and exit pages, location (ISP and country, city, state), number of pages viewed, length of visit. You can also have a weekly report emailed to you (although it has less data). And, yes, you can set it not to count hits from your computer (although it does seem to count the ones you may make when you're logged in -- at least on Blogger).
