    Website Analytics


    Hey guys,

    I was looking for some recommendations on web analytics programs. Something a little easier to understand and work with then Google Analytics. Any suggestions?

    What aspects of Google Analytics do you find difficult to understand or work with?

    It depends what you are trying to measure and the depth of the metrics you are gathering. GA is a fine free tool for sure, but there are a ton of others, with varying price tags - depends what you are wanting from the tool and more importantly the KPIs you are trying to track.

    Cheers,
    Jamie

    Website analysis tools are typically included in both business hosting and cheap website hosting packages and these tools are indeed good.Web Analytics is open source web analytics software that you can use to track and analyze how people use your websites and applications.

    Hey,

    To the OP: What system are you using? Analytics is pretty simple, but I suspect you are looking for just something to see basic daily traffic. Are you using a CMS like Wordpress or custom built html?

    To other posters: The OP is looking for something OTHER than Google Analytics, not affirmation that GA is great - sorry - the thread has become a spam magnet and just want to clarify.

    Thanks!
