Enterprise-class web analytics made smarter, friendlier and free.
Google Analytics is the enterprise-class web analytics solution that gives you rich insights into your website traffic and marketing effectiveness. Powerful, flexible and easy-to-use features now let you see and analyze your traffic data in an entirely new way. With Google Analytics, you’re more prepared to write better-targeted ads, strengthen your marketing initiatives and create higher converting websites.
Webalizer is a statistical program that makes it simple to find out how many people are visiting your site on a month by month basis. This is done by presenting colorful table charts and graphs that are straightforward and easy to read. Because these are basic stats, you can take a quick glance and gather some rather valuable information about your website. Though very useful, you may want to refer to Analog or AwStats to get more detailed information.
AwStats is an open-source application that is both powerful and easy to use. Similar to Webalizer, it presents statistics of your website in easy to read tables and graphs. However, it is slightly more advanced as it provides you with details on services such as mail, streaming media and FTP. With AwStats, static reports can be created via command line interface while on-demand reporting is available through a browser-based CGI program.
Analog is a more advanced web stat tool offering a style of presentation that differs greatly from both AwStats and Webalizer. Unlike the other options which offer graphs, this one mainly presents information in the form of text, thus requiring you to pay close attention to the details. With that said, all the vital information regarding your visitors that you will want to view are exclusively found in Analog. While many find it more difficult to use, making yourself familiar with this tool is essential if you truly want to access your traffic stats.
