I always want to know the source of my visits, how they get here, and the search terms used. This helps me develop better content in the future and use appropriate social media resources: Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Twitter.

Please bear in mind that because of the large numbers of sites listed, I did not and could not verify the services offered. Of course, with anything offered for free, drawbacks may exist.
