OK, this is just plain unfair!
I stopped using Blogger back in 2005, because, well, it hadn’t received any decent new features in a couple of years. Since then, Google has done a better job of keeping up with WordPress and today Blogger uses are getting something that really makes me jealous.
Real-time web analytics!
I mean, c’mon Google! Blogger is a free platform and you’re giving them free real-time web stats? What about us Google Analytics users? What did we ever do to deserve being shunned? <sniff>
I suspect that Blogger is getting this first because a) it’s a small set of sites to test it with, and b) Google knows the code of these sites inside and out, so can anticipate the strain on its analytics servers.
