    Like the title says...
    Can you recommend google analytics alternative for my site?
    Need a way to see my website traffic stats LOL
    Also recommend any other plugins you believe is necessary for a niche site.
    I promoting clickbank if that makes a difference.

    Are you using Wordpress? They have fairly detailed statistics.

    I use Piwik, it's a good, open source alternative. Might not have ALL the bells and whistles but does the job pretty well in my opinion. I guess it will depend on your usage, but give it a try. (note: Piwik is self hosted so you'll need to install and maintain it on your server).

    clicky.com is pretty good. In some respects its better than GA.

    I recommend StatCounter. I've been using it for years and prefer it to Analytics. I made a tutorial on how to set it up and install it (very easy). Check it out:

    Quantcast might be worth checking out.

    I've heard good things about them, but I've never used them personally.

    I use heatmap tracker, provides basic analytics but gives great information on what users are actually doing on my sites. Records user sessions so I can play it back and see where people click and how they interact with the site. Great for split testing

    Yandex metrika is legit, I use it along side GA sometimes.

    I usually use statcounter as well.
    But I signed up to this new tool named Kilometer. Kilometer.io is a promising event-based analytics tool for startups
