    There is also yahoo analytics...but there is nothing for free that is going to be able to give you data like the big G, that is why they are the big g. Also there are a ton of paid softwares that you can find...just search.

    Chartbeat is a popular alternative if you're willing to pay.

    I am using my own hosted analytics and it is open source.

    Piwik is a downloadable, open source (GPL licensed) real time web analytics software program. It provides you with detailed reports on your website visitors: the search engines and keywords they used, the language they speak, your popular pages... and so much more.

    Piwik aims to be an open source alternative to Google Analytics.

    Piwik is a PHP MySQL software program that you download and install on your own webserver. At the end of the five minute installation process you will be given a JavaScript code. Simply copy and paste this tag on websites you wish to track (or use an existing plugin to do it automatically for you) and access your analytics reports in real time.


    What makes Piwik unique from the competition:

    Real time web analytics reports: in Piwik, reports are by default generated in real time. For high traffic websites, you can choose the frequency for reports to be processed (more info)
    You own your web analytics data: because Piwik is installed on your server, the data is stored in your own database and you can get all the statistics using the powerful Piwik Analytics API
    Modern, easy to use User Interface: you can fully customize your dashboard, drag and drop widgets you want to display.
    Piwik features are built inside plugins: you can add new features and remove the ones you don't need. You can build your own web analytics plugins or hire a consultant to have your custom feature built in Piwik
    Vibrant international Open community of more than 50,000 active users

    Give it a try

    Check out the online demo that shows you the latest Piwik release - Note that the 'Administration' area is protected.
    If you need a web host to host Piwik, check out our recommended Hosting partners - they will provide a great hosting service for Piwik
    Download the latest Piwik release, upload it on your webserver (you need at least PHP 5.1 and a Mysql database), and open your browser
    The installation takes only 5 minutes!

    Demo:
    Code:

    Piwik is just incredible. What kind of problems did you have?
    It is 50 times better than GA. It has everything we need and google don't give us. (IP addresses, browsing funnels and much more).
    The interface is a work of art.

    The only problem it has is to correctly determine visitors GEO location. It makes mistakes from time to time but not a big deal.
