How can I tell how much website traffic comes from Twitter?

There are some steadfast tools for helping to understand website performance and metrics. Google Analytics is a powerful choice for many businesses--as it provides enterprise level functionality at the rock bottom price of free. There is a privacy trade off for using Google Analytics however. There are many other tools to help interpret and gather website analytics, including Omniture, Raven, Urchin, Webtrends, Piwik and more.

We have used Addthis and found it to be quite a fantastic tool. One complaint is that Addthis will self promote an @addthis shout out in your Twitter posts, which isn't a great thing.

Here comes Twitter Stats

Twitter is entering the analytics game. They have introduced a new tool, Twitter Web Analytics, which will help website owners and web designers better understand what Twitter does for you.

Many website owners rely on the information social network for content distribution, which ends up becoming a vital part of their online business agenda. The new tool is based on BackType, a social analytics company that Twitter purchased in July.

The tool is free and currently in beta.
