I signed up for it on day 1. After receiving my invite key and a few weeks of testing and observation, I'm inclined to recommend this for anyone who is interested in measuring stats and traffic for their blog.

Plus the real time map is cool. It pings the location of where someone comes from. =D

Hmm... definitely looks interesting. How does it affect page load times? How about bandwidth pulls? I just tried visiting your blog, and it may just be me, but it seemed to take a tad (but noticeably) longer than usual to load.

Oh, and one of the things I like about Google Analytics best is that it tracks which keywords people use to visit your site, does Woopra do so as well?

Anything that was in Google Analytics that is missing in Woopra?

It's just a JS script load I think. Or it can sync with a wordpress plugin.

The sluggishness of my blog is probably due with the front end garbage I have running. The admin side runs slick as a whistle. I've had Woopra installed since 5ish weeks ago.

Made a quick post listing an overview of its features and how to make use of it:

It took me about 3 weeks to get approved for Woopra, and I was really happy with it.

Until this weekend, when it did some kind of maintenance, and deleted ALL of my previous tracking ... and then did the same thing this morning. Apparently, even though I had 140ish hits yesterday, my all time hits are 15 (since it reset all my stats this morning).

I'm not sure what's up with this, but if it keeps doing that kind of reset thing, it stops being so awesome about tracking. I love the real-time and the way that it tracks statistics, but if it doesn't actually *track* consistently...
