Map your visitors (Adding ClustrMaps to your free WordPress blog)

Adding custom plug-ins is difficult for non-paying users of WordPress. Thus, we have to content ourselves with the built-in widgets provided by the free version of WordPress.

I wanted to map the location of my site’s visitors. Luckily, I was able to find ClustrMaps (http://clustrmaps.com/).


The application claims that it allows you to:

Display your ClustrMaps widget as a ‘badge of pride’ on your site so that everyone can see at a glance how the community is distributed. Some rival tools do not let you make this information public, but sites deploying ClustrMaps love to show off their readership! (http://clustrmaps.com/index-more.htm)

To add the ClustrMaps widget to your sidebar, you need to:

  1. Register at ClustrMaps.
  2. Once you are registered, expect a password sent via your specified e-mail and then, log in.
  3. After logging in, select the minimalist style. Copy the code that appears in the box.
  4. Navigate to your Widget controls in WordPress.
  5. Drag the Text widget to your desired sidebar or widget area.
  6. Specify a title for your widget. Paste the code you earlier copied from ClustrMaps in the box below the title field.
  7. Press Save button.
  8. Voila!
