    Hi,

    I'm trying to setup something to be able to track the number of visitors on my Private Blog Network without using Google Analytics. I have tried Piwik but for some reason I can't seem to make it work on my sites.

    I was wondering if Jetpack was leaving a footprint or trail when it is activated with the same account.

    Otherwise, do any of you have any other suggestion on how to track the number of visitors without Google Analytics?

    Thanks.

    I am using Jetpack for tracking stats,
    We create a new WP account each time.

    So far its working good.

    An alternative to Piwik is Open Web Analytics: http://www.openwebanalytics.com/
    I personally use Piwik - did you get it to work on other sites? Did you file an issue in the piwik community?

    cheers olystyle

    Re:Santhu
    Hi Santhu, I don't want to leave a footprint by using Google Analytics. I'm building a Private Blog Network and if all the links to a money site comes from sites with the same Google Analytics account, it would look really bad.

    Re:jass11
    Is there a reason why you create a new Wordpress account each time? Is it because you don't want to leave a footprint?

    Re:Marusia
    Are you using the same account for all your sites?

    I didn't get it to work. I followed the instructions piwik (dot) org/faq/how-to/#faq_132 but couldn't get it to work. It works perfectly if I'm not trying to hide the Piwik host but when I try to hide my footprint, it doesn't track the visitors. I have done everything is says in the file. I will try to file something with the Piwik community to get it to work.

    Thanks.
