Which website analytic tool is your favorite?

With many options to choose from, which analytic tool is your favorite and why? I like Google Analytics, but a lot of websites don't use them. I often wondered what was the main reason for that since there is so many options available.

Personally i really like Google Analytics because has everything what i want. Another one which i've been using for a long time is Histats, it's not better than Google Analytics but is a good alternative.

I've used Clicky for years. I switched back before GA had a spy view and Clicky did.

What about features? Does clicky have more features than Google Analytics? Is Clicky a free alternative to Google Analytics? Does it have realtime statistics?

I think it use to but not any more. The last time I looked at GA it had a TON of features and data that doesn't seem present in Clicky. Also, you have to pay to use Clicky.

I've used Clicky for so long that I've grown accustomed to the data and how it is presented on their site. I get lost in GA.

So basically you're paying for less features. I would probably pay for realtime statistics, does Clicky have that feature or were you mentioning that when you posted "I think it use to but anymore"?

No, I'm paying for it because it is the tool I am familiar with and know how to use most effectively. It also has over six years worth of data in it.

I have used a few and I thought that Google Analytics is the best. Firstly, it provides all sorts of information and it can be integrated to measure multiple things. For example, I used Google Analytics and a piece of code to measure the number of people using adblockers. This is not doable on other analytics tool such as AW stats.

Google Analytics is free and it normally provides very accurate data. With Google being the creator, it is a well known and reputated tool; I have been using it for a long time and never had any problems with it.

I've never even considered using anything other than Google Analytics. I just assumed everyone used Google Analytics. I've never heard of others like Clicky.

Hi Everett Thanks for your question. Analytic is the importance elements on any website for tracking traffic. You can measure user activity by any analytic and specially when you can understand most of the traffic for which country and from what network. Than you can target your visitors more specifically for your business promotion. So, for understanding or tracking user activity analytic should be active on sites and it also helpful for SEO work. I have been using Google analytic over some years and still I think nothing with comparable with Google analytic to deep research for user behavior. And I saw some of analytic provide report too but that is very poor and you cannot track anything deeply.
