    Google analytics alternative for Website stats

    Apart from Google Analytics, which other packages do people use (paid and unpaid) out of interest ? Its not that I don’t trust Analytics 100% its just I though it would be good to use another package as well as a second opinion.

    What are actual reasons why you want to find an alternative to Google analytics?
    Or Are you looking for other features that Google analytics doesn't have?

    There are more alternatives to Google analytics such as Clicky, Piwik, Gauges, Mixpanel...etc

    Other than that, you can Google for more results.

    Hope that helps.

    I like Google Analytics but for some reason, it doesn’t seem to be reporting well on traffic coming from Live Search and Yahoo when I compare with my AwStats reports.

    Exactly Google analytics ignored traffic from some other search engines or some sources that it should include into analytics. I don't know why but maybe Google didn't like their competitors.
    You should use Google analytics, you can read this post to know about the differences between Google Analytics or AWstats

    Google analytics is one of the best and free tool to check your website traffic statistics. However if you are looking for Analytics alternative you can go with Piwik. It is one of the best analytics alternative. It is also a paid option, but it will give you exact and precise detail of your site traffic. Highly reliable.

    That is completely unfounded. It definitely does not ignore traffic from other search engines. I have data on probably a hundred or so websites that proves it.

    The main difference between the two is that you won't find most of the bot traffic in Google Analytics. That is why traffic in AWstats is always higher. It is including a bunch of useless bot traffic.
