I added a couple of plugins to the blog today.
At roughly midpoint in the right sidebar, you’ll see “Top 10 Trackbackers”. This is a list of the 10 blogs that have most frequently linked back to The Phoenix Real Estate Guy. What’s the point of displaying such a list? Primarily to share a little link love. These 10 blogs get a linkback from every page here on TPREG. And who knows, it may encourage others to link here. The plugin is called Trackbackers. Getting it in my widgetized sidebar necessitated installing the Exec PHP widget plugin, which allows you to put executable PHP code in a sidebar widget. I also had to dink with the Trackbackers PHP file to get the display how I wanted it. It’s always scary when I start messing with PHP code, but I didn’t seem to blow anything up this time.
Also added was Performancing Metrics. It’s a pretty slick blog stats package. They have a WordPress plug in that simplifies installation. You can view your blog stats either on the Performancing site, or right from your WordPress dashboard. Time will tell if it will replace Google Analytics, my current stats tacker of choice.
Here’s a screen shot of the Performancing Metrics in the WP Dashboard (click image for larger view):
