The developers behind Tumblr recommend using Google Analytics to check who views your Tumblr blog. Google Analytics is a free online tool to measure website traffic, which means you'll have access to a wide spectrum of data about your visitors, including what browser they used, how long they stayed on your blog and the most-viewed pages. Setting up Google Analytics with Tumblr is relatively easy. You can usually have the code installed on Tumblr in five minutes.
