WordPress is the most popular platform among bloggers. Recently WordPress updated to latest version from 3.3.1 to 3.3.2. But there are not so much difference as bloggers expected. Every blogger’s goal is to increase visitors. There are lots of tools for tracking visitors. But among all tools I prefer Google Analytic.
