Cool Stats Widgets Series – Live Traffic Widget from FEEDJIT

About the Widget.  FEEDJIT widget will display in your WordPress.com blog, an up-to-the-moment-you-entered-this-page list of the traffic of visitors to your site.  This means a feed, like the one shown above, will appear in a sidebar or footer of your blog with a list of the most recent visitors to the website.  The feed shows the flag, city and country of the visitor, and how long ago that visitor entered the website.  Since WordPress.com do not allow javascript widgets, the feed will not refresh until you or your visitor go to a new page or refresh the current page.

If you install the widget on your site and click the Watch Live link, you will see a live traffic feed of the visitors to your site.  Of course, if you only get a couple of visits per hours it could be long before you see the feed update…
