    One of my blogs has Awstats

    I wasn't the one who installed it though. The site admin did. It's nifty though [​IMG]

    How about google analytics if you have an adwords campaign. It shows where your visitors come from even.

    TraceWatch is an incredible free program. You can watch their live demo at the site. I actually had two other programs I was paying monthly for and this one outperforms them by far.

    You do need to password protect it if you don't want open stats as it doesn't do it automatically.

    Awstats is very detailed, but you should have SSH access to your server

    It depends on what your purpose is.
    - If you want a powerful tracking system, I suggest using Google Analytics, but it has drawback: it's slow [​IMG]

    - If you want a simpler system, I suggest using Addfreestats. It's free, and it's also able to track your adsense CTR (that's why I love it).

    I have found a great free traffic tracker that is simple to use it requires adding a copy and paste script to the page you want to track.

    check it out:http://extremetracking.com

  17. Hey ebay,

    I just came across something that may interest you. It doesn't keep stats per se, but it does track WHERE people click on your site.

    http://www.crazyegg.com It has helped me in placement of ads, links and the like.

    For keeping regular stats, I use http://www.statcounter.com

    Just my .02

    ps hey Vishal, sorry I haven't been around much. busy, busy, busy...

    I agree with Quoting: netjobshighly recommended is www.statcounter.com, there statistics are awesome and much faster... features like Visitor paths, IP Address, Search Engine Keywords, Search Engine Wars, Recent Came From, Location of the Visitor & more..

    Also offers free signup for upto 100 viewers of ur website...

    I have used them too, but then run out of space, gotten over the first 100. Haven't bothered since. My site has a built in feature now, so I didn't need it. Also try myadstracker.com they seem neat
    Hey MB congrats on being persistent. I haven't seen your Blog, but I'm aiming to do exactly as you did. Only got started recently but on track so far [​IMG]
