My traffic is low, my numbers are low, but I learn so much from this sort of information; and, it’s disappointing that the built in WP statistics are so superficial AND the free statcounter option is often misaligned or at variance with WP statistics. Any suggestions?

The Stats on WordPress.com are a special favorite of many site owners — it’s our second-most visited screen. At a glance, you can see when you get the most traffic, which posts are making the biggest impact, who your most frequent commenters are, and more. It’s a great way to gain insights into your visitors and your site.
