This will show you how to enable the new wordpress.com stats in your self hosted wordpress blog :)
they let you see pageviews per day, week, month. they also let you see search terms, etc

go to your self hosted wordpress admin
goto plugins > add new
search for ‘jetpack’
install it.

you have to connect it to a wordpress.com account [it will let you register a new one if you need to]
once its connected then your site stats will be saved on wordpress.com servers, so it doesnt bog down your database

if you use the iOS apps for ipad and iphone then you will be able to see site stats on your iOS device too :)
