Thank you for the recommendation!  I use craigslistadtrackers to track posted listings.   AWStats goes beyond that for tracking capabilities.  Many Realtors and sellers like knowing the effectiveness of online marketing.

Pam, Another new tool to check out.  I love stats and they really go a long way when communicating with clients.

I have been wondering why active rain does not rain this in and provide this feature.

Hi Susan - You're in good company.  It's one smart way to mold your marketing efforts around your market.

Hi James - Active Rain has a stats section that gives limited information.  If you're looking for a more comprehensive system, maybe an email to customer support is in order.  AR listens.
