Free Web Statistics and Web Analytics Hosting Services
Note that if you are hosted with a commercial web host, you typically already have some sort of web statistics package preinstalled on your account. If you're not satisfied with the stats it provides, you can also run your own log analyzers on your raw web logs (usually provided with a commercial account) to produce your own web statistics. You can find some free log analyzers on the Free Log Analyzers and Web Statistics Software page.
Free Web Statistics / Analytics (Webstats Hosting Services)
- Google Analytics
Google Analytics provides you with massive amounts of statistics about your website, such as the performance of your keywords on every search engine, analysis of your visitors by country, page views, etc, the ability to view trends (for example, are the number of visitors referred to by a particular site rising or falling, etc), provides funnel visualisation (which tells you the bottlenecks in your, say, conversion and checkout processes), and so on. There are over 80 predefined reports available. The service is free up to 5 million page views per month unless you have an "active Adwords campaign in good standing".
- StatCounter Free Invisible Web Tracker and Stats
StatCounter gives your site an invisible counter with no advertisements. You can obtain statistics of the number of page loads, unique, first-time, and returning visitors, a list of popular pages on your site, get the list of referring keywords and links, browsers used, screen resolutions, visitor paths through your site (list of pages that each visitor loads), etc. Detailed statistics are only available for the last 500 log entries.
- FreeStats Detailed Web Site Stats
FreeStats provide your site with statistics on page views, unique visitors, popular pages and top referrers. You also have access to the raw logs. You need to put an advertising banner on your site.
- AddFreeStats Website Statistics
In exchange for a small 88x31 button which is displayed on all pages on your site that you want tracked, AddFreeStats provides reports on your visitors (the IP address and operating system of your last 40 visitors, the number of visits, page views, etc), referrers (last 40 referral URLs), most requested page, top search engines that referred visitors to you, the most popular entry and exit pages of your site, top keywords, returning visitors, etc.
- Site Tracker Web Statistics
Site Tracker gives you detailed reports on the past 7 days of your website. Reports include traffic reports (page views, unique visitors, popular pages, raw logs) and referral data (top referrals only - it does not give you information on the top keywords used on search engines that some of the other free web statistics software provide). You are required to put an advertising banner on your website (it's a long vertical banner). Site Tracker will allow you to track multiple pages on your website. The disadvantage of this service is the paucity of reports you get, compared to the other free services.
- Extreme Tracking
Extreme Tracking provides your website with free web statistics reports. You have to place some code which they will supply on your page (which in turn will display a button linking to Extreme Tracking). Each time that button is loaded, their webstats software will log the information supplied by the visitors to that web page. Among the reports they supply are Referral data (including which keywords were used on which search engines), the number of unique visitors you have to your site (per day, per week, per month, per hour), the browsers, operating system, screen resolutions and screen colours used by your visitors, your visitors' geographical location, etc. They only allow you to put the button onto one page of your site, which in my opinion, makes this service not very useful unless your site has only one page. The other disadvantage is that your statistics are publicly available (anyone can access them).
