I use the following tools:
1. *Wordpress*: You can deploy Wordpress in two ways, either on
Wordpress.com (with limited functionality), or on your own server,
with a full set of functionalities (e.g. custom themes, plugins,
etc.). The statistics on Wordpress.com are fantastic, and you can
obtain an identical set of functionalities on an hosted Wordpress by
installing the Jetpack plugin.
2. *Facebook*: I use the Facebook statistics page, which is reachable
from the "Insights" page. I don't know if this available also for
events (such as the IJCNN page).
3. *Twitter*: You can obtain a lot of stastitics from
https://analytics.twitter.com/ (which is not directly linked on the
main website, at least, I didn't found it).
4. *Google*+: You have a limited set of statistics from the page
itself, otherwise, you can link the page to the Google Analytics
service. However, it is quite complicated to use, so I tend to avoid
it for simple matters such as computing the number of visualizations
There are several external services for obtaining advanced statistics
(particularly on Twitter), however, I tend not to trust them completely.
Some of them are quite intriguing, for example common interests of your
followers or similar things.
