    Used Piwik for several of my clients. It's REALLY heavy on the database backend(I'd definitely buy a separate db server for it), but it works great and has some truly detailed reporting.

    Plus avoiding Google's tracking = priceless.

    I recently started using PiWik and will agree that it is heavy on the db, but I really like it so far.

    OP - Thank you for the list of alternatives. Sometimes it is nice to get out of google's all seeing eye.

    I used piwik for a bit, I liked it but it created some problems on my site so I ended up deleting it.

    I can vouch for statcounter. They even have a wordpress plug that makes it easy. The free version is fine unless you get tons of traffic. You can setup multiple domains under the same account and each account does not interfere with the log limits of the others. What's nice about it is that you can see refers as they come in and what their navigation path on your site was, unlike GA.

    I just bought a fiverr gig to set up Piwik. So far, so good.

    Using Piwik for years without any issue.
    IMO GA is Piwik's alternate.
