Reader Stats plugin

Media_httpjasonclarkw_iwlds

You may have noticed the new plug in that shows number of readers for each post. It doesn't track RSS readers, or people who open the main page and scan a post without clicking on it. It's not a detailed stats provider (which I already have in the form of mint that shows me behind the scenes, who is reading my site, with what browser/RSS reader and from which part of the world etc).

The 'reads' plug in is more a visual feedback for people visiting the site to get some sense of which posts are generating the most interaction. Comments of course are one measure of a post, but often the most read posts, have few comments.
