Finding your WordPress stats — some quick ways to find out how many are viewing your site.
WordPress site stats are easy to find, if you have Jetpack installed. If you don’t have Jetpack’s WordPress.com stats running on your site, then read my post on it here: Utilizing the Jetpack plugin: WordPress.com Stats.
Simply hover over the Jetpack tab and select Site Stats for a basic views rundown. It doesn’t delve deep into the stats, but it will tell you how many views per day/week/month your site is receiving and what the top five posts/pages of the day were.
Individual posts and pages stats
There’s a way to find specific traffic details on individual posts and pages, too.
A quick way to click over to stats for popular posts and pages is to click on the little bar graph beside whichever posts/pages are showing up in your “Top Posts & Pages” section.
