View Full Version : Stat tracking?

I'm using statcounter.com but am worried about the accuracy of it, should I trust an off site program?

I've applied for Google Analytics but have not yet received word back.

statcounter.com is reporting I'm receiving 85,000 hits per day, and 4,000 unique users per day.

Is this all the info that I should be tracking? It also has session time, and browser types.

Any ideas?

You can track page impressions, origin of your visitors, the type of search engine spiders visiting, which pages are most popular, the referrers... there are heaps more things you can track. :)

I guess I'm wondering what programs people use for stat tracking?

AWStats via cPanel mostly but trying to get on with Google Analytics.
I also use Adsense to track as well as double-click. I try and average them all out.

I use Google Analytics (free with an AdSense account, I believe) and analog. Analog is especially good for large sites since it is one of the fastest at processing logs.

I don't think Analytics is free with Adsense, since I have Adsense. Do you mean AdWords?

We just got our analytics/adwords account last week, so I don't know what it can do yet. One of the other admins (who knows far more about advertising than me) is playing about with it.

Wanna sell it? :)

Heck, they probably have a TOS for that, but in case not...

Analytics is alright, I have not messed with it much yet though.

I applied for Analytics after reading this thread, and have already been approved. It is pretty nifty - you might want to reapp Demented.

Google Analytics is great, and with the new interface I would say it's the best stats package every made. It's nice that it's free too:)

Yup, I use analytics for my sites as well. It is great. I used to use Urchin (which is what analytics is based off of after Google bought them out) so I have used this tracking system for a while. :)
