I am a great fan of GOOGLE ANALYTICS but it has its own parts of dishonour, like absence of real time tracking and stuffs. Some times the count is also wrong . So, if you are one of them who have found bugs in google then you might want to have an alternative to it . Lets take a look at some of the best alternatives.
Sitemeter is one cool tracking site . Sitemeter provides you a web counter for your webpage to publicize . Real time tracking and detailed visitor information is some of its best features .
Piwik is unlike google analytics , it is a self hosted analytic tracker . It is a software that needs to be installed on your server and once you are done with the installation you will be given a java script tag to be added. When you put it on your site, tracking starts and it gives you real time results. Fully customizable interface is a real bonus .
Woopra is a real cool alternative in my view with real time tracking and detailed reports on the visitors . It provides you a feature to chat with the visitors who are currently on your website. Interface is very user friendly and clean, like google analytics you just need to have a script pasted on your site header for it to work.
Awstat also uses server to track users, as a result there is no need of installing any tracking code on your site header . It is a CGI , everything is represented graphically .
Getclicky has a very user friendly interface with real time tracking. Easy setup and live results are some of the best features of the site . It gives all the details about the visitors and traffic source.
Hitstat is a normal tracking alternative and provides all the metrics needed for tracking . All details are put up in a clean and simple interface.
Stat counter is one of the oldest tracking site and has earned a lot of respect with its services. Simple and chart representation help users to work with it well .
Stuffed tracker is a special one , it has all the metrics and also it allows split testing i.e you can create a new URL to send your visitors to different pages which allows you to measure the effectiveness of the page .
As the name suggests Chart beat is highly graphical and has clean interface . It lets you know the time taken for loading your site which is very handy for bloggers. The bad part of it is that you need to pay to use its services .
Gostats has a fully customizable interface and two versions . One is free in which you get the number of visitors to your site and information on them via reports . When you upgrade the services you will be able to have a look the source and location of the visitors .
