    I dont trust G analytics monitoring 100% I was thinking about switching to Godaddy's service but they are a bit costly. Anyone deal with Godaddy's monitoring? How is it? Are there any other worthy alternatives.

    Stay away any services Godaddy has.
    There's a free open source analytics, maybe someone can post it I don't have the URl.
    *** think this is it actually http://piwik.org/

    Paying for analytics when you can get it for free? I'd stay away, especially since it's GoDaddy we are talking about.

    Especially since Godaddy is evil and supports SOPA... they suck.

    Try histats.com. I have used it before and it's nice. Also, what's wrong with Google Analytics? They have always been good for me.

    Well, there is always the worry of Google "knowing too much" about your site, esp. if you are doing some black hat things.

    You can also try OWA (like piwik but self contained)

    GA is the best ofc. And they recently started live data which shows active visitors at that minute :)

    I use piwik myself and it's great. Go to the page above and scroll down about 3/4 of the page. You will see a link called "Hosting Partners".
    Click on that and it will take you to some good hosting providers that install piwik for you automatically.
