Review: StatCounter

Technology / Analytics - Website Hit Counter - Visitor Tracking
"The clear leader of the pack."

The Good: StatCounter offer excellent visitor reports, the ability to track individual visitors to getting an exact picture of where they came from and what pages they viewed, you can even label them for easy reference. You can manage multiple sites from within the one control panel. Its free, you don't have to display their logo. Plus they can email you reports once a week or month. You can use a blocking cookie to ignore your visits or block IP addresses. You can even export the data.

The Bad: The only thing I could even suggest as being a negative is the advertising placed on the StatCounter website. But what website doesn't have advertising these days?

Summary: This is the clear winner with the detailed reports allowing you to know what is popular and produce more of that content. You don't have to display a logo, they email you reports and you can export the data.

Verdict: This is my pick of the analytic programs, but it is closely followed by Google Analytics who do produce more professional looking reports.
