Find Out The Most Popular Posts In Your Blog With Blogstorm

June 11, 2007 by  

A new service called Blogstorm was launched recently to help bloggers track the number of links each post has from other sites.

It monitors your RSS feed daily and offer free statistics so you can see which of your posts are popular.

The service is still in beta and as everything beta, this tool isn’t perfect. It uses Yahoo! Explorer to obtain the number of links. Because of this, all links including those from spam blogs and advertisement are counted. This has a direct effect of artificially inflating the number of links a post has.

To use this service, you’ll need to upload a PHP file into your server and obtain Yahoo! API by login into your Yahoo! account. It’s fairly straight forward steps to follow but if your blog hosting does not allow manually uploading of PHP files, you are out of luck.

But regardless of those gripes, this service is worth checking because of the useful information it could provide. You can find Sabahan.com stats here.
