wordpress smileSome people say web analytics is hard. Others try to keep web analytics simple. But at least one company is trying to reduce web analytics rage with a smile on its face.

Most web analytics use an invisible gif to track Web traffic, but WordPress uses a small smiley face gif on their pages (scroll to the bottom-left of WordPress.com). Some bloggers are surprised to see a smiley face in their blog themes, but it’s actually part of the WordPress stats plugin.

  1. Google uses a little image that says something like “Google Site Stats” on designated conversion pages for Adwords advertisers. Users can click on to find out what information Google’s collecting, why, etc.

    It’s good for people to have more info, but I don’t think it’s necessary.
