Statistics are here!

You can now see the number of people who have visited your journal, your individual entries, a chart of comments, readers of the RSS feed of your journal, and the last 100 logged-in users who have visited your journal directly (if you've enabled My Guests).

Things you should know:
-Stats are completely anonymous (only My Guests is tied to username); only numbers are recorded, not any other information
-The times and dates in the graph are based on server time, which is UTC/GMT
-The light grey number at the top left corner of the graph is the statistical outlier
-While the graph may go back in time to this summer, the stats-gathering server was not on constantly, so previous stats may be missing. Today, and going forward, full stats are collected and displayed.
-If you opt out of My Guests (meaning that your username will not show up on other people's reports and you will not be able to view your My Guests tab), it does not affect your use of the rest of the Stats - if you're a Paid or Permanent user, you'll still be able to see all the rest of the information on this feature

I clicked through, poking around at various months and days in Total Traffic mode, then when I switched to Journal Only, all the stats disappeared. I clicked back to Total Traffic, and they were gone. If I clicked on a month/day I hadn't clicked to already (say, October), the stats were there, but if I'd then click to another month (November - empty) then back (October) the stats would be gone, complete with a little 0 in the up-left corner.

If you have "My Guests" disabled (http://www.livejournal.com/manage/settings/?cat=privacy) no one will be able to see you by username in these stats. You'll just show up as some random anon. ;)

I spent forever trying to get java working on three different browsers only to have all my stats disappear.

Call me when you actually get this thing working *eyeroll*

It does work. I'm betting it went down because so many people were accessing it.

Sometimes when I click a button to change the view, no data appears, even though I have previously seen data in that view. Is this a known bug?

It's a known bug as of right now. A refresh or two will pull through the information and I've alerted someone about it, so hopefully it will be fixed shortly.

Edit: we believe the problem has been found and fixed as of a few minutes ago.

I can see me spending ages playing with this. Mind you, what I'd especially love is seeing stats by tag. Now that would be very interesting.

I am also getting a bug when looking at the entry-only page. I start out on the default "Entry View" tab and it shows a bunch of stats, and then I switch to "All visitors" and it shows different stats, but then when I switch again it shows nothing, and if I go back to "Entry View," still nothing.

Aside from these small bugs though, which hopefully will get ironed out, this is quite neat. :)

This looks like a really promising tool, but my "journal only" counts are sometimes higher than my "total traffic" counts. Am I missing something here?

very nice, thank you :)

a question ... maybe a suggestion? will it be possible at some point to see what 'a guest' looked at? as in, if s/he looked at the profile page, an entry ... i'm aware that most users surf around a bit, so there would be a need to decide what is recorded ... maybe where they 'enter' the journal?

Yes, this would be indeed interesting, since I have a lot of non-friended guests who cannot see any entries (all friendslocked) - I'd like to know why they were there - and perhaps where they came from (from a friend's journal or are they completely random? If so, what led them to me???)...

A bit off-topic... but I see that paidmembers has their members "hidden" where no one can see them. Is that possible to do for other communities here on LJ?

The graphs keep disappearing. They appear fine once, and then I click another tab and come back, and they're blank.

Refreshing the page should pull up the information. It's a bug, and we're working on fixing it right now.

This is an utterly bad fucking idea, especially since you have been collecting stats since the early summer *without telling people*

The My Guests feature was announced back in July, so that everyone could choose their privacy options before that happened. That was done specifically so that privacy could be respected.
