Which analytics program do you use?
« on: March 31, 2012, 07:40:13 AM »
Like a few others, I have received a notification from a service that I use which encourages me to uninstall google analytics and to discontinue the use of the google webmaster tools.  I read that JL does not use google analytics and I can understand not wanting to give google access to any more information than I have to.  But, what is the alternative?

Is their a product (or products) that gives you access to the same kinds of information and tools that you use and are satisfied with?

I use and thoroughly recommend www.statcounter.com there are free and paid services. You will like this service!

A big plus point for me was that the traffic figures from Statcounter were very similar to those from Google. Some stats packages were giving me very different numbers.

I wouldn't use Google Analytic keep in the mind when you use Google Analytic or Google Webmaster tool you are giving way to Google all info about your site I would recommend using W3 counter...
