Best Web Analytics Tools To Track Your Website Traffic

To keep track of your company growth, regardless of its size is an important task, that should be handled by good, effective and proper tools.

Using any analytic tool to track your visitors can be overwhelming at start, but to use that data with proper measures will always be the main task. So, before making any decisions to choose a web analytics tool you need to invest time to study it well.

With me, i had this problem of applying Google analytics on every site, but not reading the data properly and not using it makes it a waste, a piece of dump script on your site, which also slows your site down without any reason.

Probably many of SEO guys will not agree about the speed issue, but I have experienced a drop in speed whenever you apply a analytic script on your site, it can be a fraction of seconds but, it matters a lot.

    Analytics is probably the most complete tool to analyze your traffic. There are others as well but most of them ask you to add a visible code on your webpage, so I prefer Google Analytics any day.

    My choice is Google Analytics. It’s free, reliable and powerful, especially with custom reports. Now extended it with chrome extension to make analysis even easier and faster https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/nnjddncjfaimmmbamijonddhflmnhfdg

    Thanks for the great list of web Analytics. Generally I use Google Analytics to track my blog and I also use StatCounter for some of my blog. It has so many features that helps me to track my blog visitor in a smart way :)

    This is a good list, with a lot of useful information! But if you want to gather the most popular web analytics tools I think you should also quote AT Internet’s tool Analyzer (http://www.atinternet.com). This French company is a fierce competitor to Google Analytics, a lot of big European companies (but not only) and I think they are worth having a quick look at :)

    You posted a great list. According to me Google analytics is the best. But when you more than one tool for site analysis, both shows the different number of users and pageviews.
