You can have simple, concise stats with no additional load on your server by plugging into WordPress.com’s stat system.
There are hundreds of plugins and services that track your visitors. Even though services like Google Analytics provide valuable information, it can be overwhelming and doesn’t highlight what’s most interesting to a writer. That’s why Automattic created its own stats system. To focus on the most popular metrics a blogger wants to track and provide them in a clear and concise interface.
Installing this stats plugin is much like installing Akismet, all you need is to put in your API Key and the rest is automatic.
Once it’s running it’ll begin collecting information about your pageviews, which posts and pages are the most popular, where your traffic is coming from, and what people click on when they leave. It’ll also adds a link to your dashboard to allow you to see all your stats on a single page. Clutter free!
Because the processing and collection runs on Automattics servers and not yours, it doesn’t cause additional load on your hosting account. In fact, it boasts that it’s one of the fastest stats system, hosted or not hosted, that you can use.
