MyBlogLog is all about tracking "the missing links" - what makes your readers click to leave your site. (i.e. What really interests them.) Existing stats packages are great for telling you how people found your site and what they looked at while they were there. MyBlogLog tracks where your readers go when they leave your site in a non-obtrusive way. We do not alter link URLs or send the browser through a tracker webpage.
