Google Integration Toolkit
Author: Daniel Fruzynski
“Google provides a lot of useful services, which can be integrated with your blog. With them you can check how your site is indexed in Google (using Google Webmaster Tools), get detailed statistics (Google Analytics), and earn money (Google AdSense) and more. This plugin allows to easily integrate them with your blog.”
Author: Julian Widya Perdana
“Displays quick statistics of your blog about its Page Rank, Alexa Rank, and Back Links right on the dashboard page to help you monitor your blog's rank.”
“There are hundreds of plugins and services which can provide statistics about your visitors. However I found that even though something like Google Analytics provides an incredible depth of information, it can be overwhelming and doesn't really highlight what's most interesting to me as a writer. That's why Automattic created its own stats system, to focus on just the most popular metrics a blogger wants to track and provide them in a clear and concise interface.”
Author: Eric Lamb
“The click tracker works in 2 modes:
1. Scans posts and rewrites them to include a tracking element
2. Enables users to create stand alone trackable links that can be embedded in posts or offsite.”

Once the plugin StatPress has been activated it immediately starts to collect information.

In the Dashboard menu you will find the StatPress Reloaded page where you could look up the statistics (overview or detailed). StatPress Reloaded also includes a widget you can add to a sidebar (or easy PHP code if you can't use widgets!).”
“kStats Reloaded is based on a stripped down and highly modified version of StatPress Reloaded, allowing you to record extremely accurate and useful information about traffic coming to your web site.
