Hello Friends, Now I am presenting my favorite and free WordPress statistics plugins that must be used if you are on WordPress platform.

Jetpack is one of the best plugin I use. It gives exact statistics of the WordPress blog. Not only statistics, it also gives the power of WordPress.com to a Self-Hosted Blog. Some of the great features are listed below :

2. WassUp Stats
The another statistics plugin I use is WassUp stats, but this plugin also takes record of the activity of spy visitors, crawlers, bots, etc. which are viewing your blog.
WassUp shows a lot of data from who is visiting your blog like:
- ip / hostname
- search engines used (includes Google Images)
- SERP (search engine result page)
- operating system / language / browser
- pages viewed (chronologically and per user session)
- complete user agent

Many of the users still does not have a high speed internet connection at their home. They usually use other resources like cyber cafe etc. to surf internet. Many of the users want to read post offline and want to download the post as PDF or any other readable format. So here I will introduce a plugin which will allow the users to Download PDF and print directly a post from our blog.
How To Allow Users To Print, Download And Email PDF Of Post
- Download and Install Print Friendly and PDF Button Plugin from WordPress repository.
- Navigate to Settings -> Print Friendly and PDF in WordPress Dashboard.
- Adjust the settings as your need.
- Now at the end of the post, the buttons will appear to Print and Download the post.
- When the button has clicked, a Pop-up Lightbox will show up, in which the user can select the desired text to print and remove the text/image that is not needed with a single click.
Update: There are also much more plugins available like W3 Total Cache, iThemes Security, Contact Form 7, Disqus Comment System, EWWW Image Optimizer, GoCodes, etc.
