So, while SiteMeter has burned their bridges with many bloggers, I am bummed that there is no direct replacement.
While StatCounter does keep track of the visits, it doesn't keep track of where those visits are referred from. I don't know where my hits come from. I cannot tell who searched for a particular subject of they used Google or Bing or Yahoo.
Having said that, I do like the rest of StatCounter.
I am bummed, however, that SiteMeter forced me to make this decision.
