MyBlogLog is a service provided by Yahoo! It helps you to track what interests your website visitors. In particular, it tracks the links they click on to leave your website. Use this information to make your site more compelling for visitors so that they want to stay on your site. Two levels of service exist. The difference between the free version and the pro version is the ability to see real-time statistics and download logs so that you can analyze them on your own. Use the "Reader Roll" WordPress widget to display pictures of other MyBlogLog users who have visited you site. MyBlogLog also provides code for you to enter into your blog template to track statistics.
