Pretty colours and the top 20 traffic sources - sweet!

We just fixed a few bugs in the statistics and reverted to the pie chart, displaying any source accounting for more than 1% of traffic. Did you like the column chart better?

I like the new pie chart a lot.

But it really depends on the number of traffic sources. I don't have that many.

Oh, I just saw your statistics - that actually does look great with columns. The problem is: the vast majority of authors don't have such an equal distribution of sources, and so, a column chart is probably not the best choice ... In your case, however, the pie chart is ... well ... a bit overcrowded :-P

Cry I have lots of sources so the bar chart (briefly available) was almost what I needed to see who is sending me traffic.

I can understand you using the pie chart for the majority though - but will that be the case as the site and our articles become more mature.

Maybe you could Smile give us the option which of the two formats could be shown on our stats page.

Katie, it was not the pie I was referring to - it was the brief appearance of the bar - I like bars

Thanks for the useful update on the statistics page.

Either way (pie or bar) the new statistics page is a real improvement. As it gives the information I need without having to dig around for it on Google Analytics.  

If I had to choose I found the bar chart easier to read as at a glance I could see how much traffic was coming in and from where. I have 20 sources showing and 3 of them form 3/4 of the pie and the rest are very tiny slices. With a bar chart I can read at a glance where the smaller number of visits are from.

I will be able to use either and  understand that it may be decided on what is best for the majority.  It is encouraging to be able to see what is happening day to day. I had started to feel in a bit of a void and was wondering what I could do differently.
