    I have been searching this week for a decent GA alternative and I found one that has my attention and was wondering if anyone is using it and could maybe shed some light.

    Open Web Analytics, "Mouse movement records, DOM click tracking, and multi-page click heatmaps" are three features GA doesn't have.

    Then we have piwik and clicky, which of the three do you use and recommend?

    I like how Piwik has evolve so much. I tried OWA and it was soooooooo buggy.

    clicky is the best imho but it is a paid service. piwik uses server resources heavily as far as I know (maybe much better now). Stats plugins uses much resources too and make ur sites slower. Jetpack is a such an example.

    tracking mouse movements on the site and etc should only be used to test ad placements and etc, it will really slow down your site.

    I use wassup real time analytics for wordpress, and I really like it a lot, I just want to know how many visits everyday, and wich pages are visited on my web, so for me it does very well the job.

    My main client runs a very high traffic site/massive network of pumper sites and he normally has clicky.

    If you can afford a good host go with Piwik. If you want to reduce the cost, go for Clicky.
    Clicky & Piwik don't have advanced reports like GA. But you can get the data and do all type of post processing.
    IMHO, Clicky is better than Piwik.

    try sitemeter, it works better in tracking the analytics. Still google is the best IMO

    As said by Sky Rocket SEO, go with Yandex Metrika. I started using it after reading his post and all I can say is it is totally awesome. GA is just shit when compared to Metrika.
