Feed Stats for WordPress
Feed Stats for WordPress seamlessly integrates FeedBurner's statistics into the WordPress control panel. Stats for your feed can be viewed from the "Feed Stats" page in the "Dashboard" section of WordPress.
Currently, this plugin allows you to view the following types of statistics:
4. Item Clickthroughs
5. Item Views
This plugin makes use of FeedBurner Awareness API, so stats are retrieved and displayed without the use of the ugly frames or screen-scraping techniques. After data is retrieved, the plugin makes use of the Google Charts API to display beautiful graphs of feed stats, without putting excessive load on one's web server.
Note: This is a third-party plugin for viewing data from the FeedBurner web service. I am not in any way affiliated with FeedBurner.
As an avid blogger, I consider the ability to analyze traffic to my website and its RSS feeds to be extremely important. Like many others, I use the Google FeedBurner web service to manage and track the RSS feeds for my site.
In February 2008, when I first began to use FeedBurner for my WordPress blog, I disliked having to visit FeedBurner's website in order to see my feeds' stats. Other analytics services, such as WordPress.com Stats, seamlessly integrated into the WordPress dashboard. Why couldn't FeedBurner's stats be visible inside of the control panel, too?
After perusing the FeedBurner website and reading about WordPress plugin development, I decided to write a plugin that would embed FeedBurner's stats into my site's WordPress control panel.
Who will enjoy this the most?
Anyone who runs a WordPress blog and wishes to see their stats quickly and easily, without having to leave their blog's control panel, will love this WordPress plugin. Since it was added to the WordPress plugin repository a roughly a year ago, it has been downloaded over 6,400 times.
Non-English speakers will also love the plugin. FeedBurner's web interface is currently available in a small number of non-English languages. I hope to work with members of the open-source world to translate my plugin into as many languages as possible, so that anybody will be able to see their Feedburner stats in their native language. Version 1.0.6 of the plugin introduced full support for WordPress's translation API. One volunteer, Björn Bürstinghaus, made use of this and contributed a German translation; this translation was shipped in 1.0.6.
