Free Site Analytics
We run down the best free site analytics offerings
In my last article I talked about using web analytics tools to drive more traffic to your fiverr gig pages. Because gaining that all important traffic is so important to your success with fiverr I thought i’d spend a little more time focusing on some more free site analytics that you can employ in your day to day fiverr activities as they relate to your person sites and blogs.
Top 7 free site analytics tools
Google Keyword Planner – Without a doubt this one is the “king” of free site analytics tools
Bing Keyword Toolbox – Most small time bloggers and site developers don’t even realize that Microsoft’s Big G competitor has its own free site analytics as well. That’s a shame because besides being rather robust they offer an outstanding second opinion to the google option and even open up some interesting new analytics options as well.
Clicky – A basicly free service that lets you can track up to 3,000 page views each day on a single website. The free version offers visitor tracking and filtering along with a few other features. As expected most of the coolest stuff is for paying users but the free site analytics offered still make it worth checking out.
Statcounter – Uses a combo of log analysis along with cookies to gather information on return visitors, unique visitors, first time visits, total page views, and more. The accuracy of the information is superior due to the methods it uses to collect data. A paid service is available if your site has more than 250,000 page hits a month, or you are wanting a log size greater than 500 page loads. Generally speaking, the free Site analytics offered by Statcounter is amazing for lower trafficked sites or simple start-ups.
Awstats.org – AW Stats is a one of the best free real-time log analyzers on the web. Unlike Google’s free site analytics, AW Stats isn’t a server-side application made to handle server logs. What this means to you is that the program is installed locally on your a server, probably at your host or office, as opposed to having to access site data via the internet. You must be aware that you need be able to run Perl 5.00503 or higher scripts from a command line or CGI. If you’re not technically savvy then its best you stick to Google’s Free Site Analytics tools and save yourself the frustration.
