As many of you have seen I have added some Google AdSense units to my site to generate a little bit of revenue on the side. I would recommend this to other blog users that generate a decent amount of page views a day. I would also suggest starting as soon as you can. The longer you have the ads up, the more money you will generate over time. Take care and swift bloggin.

FireStats is another great plugin I have installed in WordPress. It’s a great tool for showing page views. It breaks stats down into total pageviews and visits and then pageviews and visits from the last 24 hours. Then it displays information like referers, search terms, popular pages, browser and operating system info, and county data. Then the plugin displays information for each hit on your website. On the settings page you can exclude certain stats from known bots and ip addresses. You also have the option of installing firestats in a seperate database or adding it to another database so that you can manage stats for all your different blogs in one place. You may also install FireStats as a standalone php app, or for Django, Drupal, Gregarius, Joomla, MediaWiki, trac and WordPress.
