Would you believe analytics or webalizer?

by KenJ 4 replies
I am getting a bit neurotic about numbers of visitors to my sites. I have been using google analytics to work out my converison rates etc. I have now started look at my hosts webalizer stats and they all show a lot more daily visitors.

So who do I believe.

Any Comments?

    My hosts webalizer and analytics are pretty much the same.

    Well, I definitely feel analytics is superior in many ways. My second favorite would be awstats.
    It is okay to contact me! I have been developing software since 1999, creating many popular products like phpLD.

    If I were to buy a website, I will find Analytics to be more reliable as self hosted stats can be manipulated. So because of that I am more biased to the accuracy of Analytics.
