WordPress Stats Plugin

So a few weeks ago, the WordPress team launched the WordPress Stats plugin. Any Laughing Squid customers, who are also website stats junkies (and have WordPress blogs), will want to add this one to your stats tracking regimen.

This stats plugin is unique because it doesn’t slow down your blog by writing to a database on your own server. Instead, this plugin ties-in with the WordPress.com API key, and acts as a stand-alone service offered by Automattic, the parent company of the WordPress empire.

Like anything WordPress, it’s pretty much a plug and play installation. You can also be sure that new features will roll out for this stats tracker in the future.

For more info, see the write-up by WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg and the blog post by Laughing Squid, as well as the instructions for installing the stats plugin.
