    Hey guys and gals..

    Love this forum!

    I've noticed google analytics never gives accurate results.. I use the google analyticator in the back office of my wordpress..

    Is there anything else out there better that you guys would recommend??

    :confused:

    Woopra. I'm loving the desktop client and it's a piece of cake to install on WP with their plugin via an API key, simple copy and paste job.
    It's free up to 30000 page views a month after that you'll need to pay.

    I just removed GA from all my sites as I should have ages ago - changed after G announcement the other day basically shafting anyone, except those that pay for their advertising, to get accurate analytics.

    Otherwise I've tried Cystats and Statpress plugins but I like my shiny new desktop toy now.

    I can't speak for the other tools mentioned above, however, I use Statpress and have been very satisfied.

    I heard piwik is great, I'm installing it at the moment. Not sure how good it is but heard good things and it's free.

    I think that google must sort out these issues with analytics.

    I also use Woopra, but for regular website, mine is not wordpress. It give you live views which I really like. It give you all short of infomation such as ip, location, browser type, how long and how they were referred to my website, by keyword or website links. Great way of checking your PPC.

    I just installed Woopra, looks interesting... but yeah, I always thought Analytics was missing some of my traffic.
