OK I’m just going to get right to the topic.
Don’t rely on the stats your host gives you.
Well, you shouldn’t completely rely on them anyway. Especially if there isn’t a way to ignore your own views, and Blogger doesn’t have this. I’m sure half the views it’s giving me are my own. Since I can’t use Google analytics, I could use something like Statcounter, or Sitemeter to track my stats. I think wordpress.com stats might be a bit better than Blogger’s, but I’d still use an outside service. That’s of course if you’re going to track stats at all, you don’t have to.
