I think using FeedJIT on blog is a great idea. By this you can get live traffic feed for your page. There have some other facilities also like : using map or over viewing the blog. But those thing do not provide you the correct traffic and sometime those are very confusing because those gadget quite often provide wrong information.
But why you are being confused ? There have FeedJIT by which you can get the accurate and live traffic for your blog. There have lots of site from where you can get FeedJIT for your blog.
