    Those are very useful tools Khaja,
    One of the various things a blogger can’t afford to overlook is checking of blog’s stats, because only that way will he know if he is going forward or backward.

    I’m using statcouneter, and i must confess that its been very wonderful.

    I will also take time to check out all the other ones you mentioned here.

    Thanks for sharing Khaja.

    Clicky is one of the best analytics tool. I use both GA and Clicky in my blogs but for me Clicky is more easy to use and gives real time stats. I am using a premium plan of Clicky, but their free plan is also very good.
