Just about to make my first micro niche, which one should I use?
Does it even matter?
I use Google Analytics
i'm using statcounter
It's a personal preference
Personally I use GA, used it for years, very used to the interface, but really it's a matter of personal preference as B.O.S.S said, they're fairly equal.
another vote for google analytics, plus they just changed their UI which i like a lot more. havent dug in fully but looks like they added a bunch of new features and also now integrates (somewhat) with webmaster tools
I use woopra.. Love it
Is it safe to use GA on all of your sites? Wont that show your hand so to speak to Google?
Has anyone actually tested this?
Here's the deal, they may collect similar info, however, Google knows already far too much about us, and its presence is growing.
A regular user shouldn'tworry too much, but IMs and other pros should.
It gives Google the upper hand in any relationship.
Google keeps the algo secret (and they should), but knows everything about us.
Wait 'til they manage to get a social network going like FB, an OS like Windows and so on, and you'll see!
My vote goes for SC or any other that is not owned by Google (yet).
If you ever want to sell the site, I'd highly recommend using Google Analytics.
Woopra looks really good... but price is a bit steep...
will look more into it.
I gave you, your 3,000th thanks.
i made you enter to 4000 thanks era so congrats
Wow... you've made 495 posts in 15 days?!? How on earth did you manage that?
GA is the best choice if you want to sell the site in the future. I've been using GA on all of my sites for almost 1 year and i don't have any problems so far.
That's pretty impressive actually.
Statcounter cause I don't like it that GA is connected to the gmail account.
GA is no longer providing KEY search referral data due to their SSL implementation thingy... I loved them until they starting screwing around with our keyword referral data... Fckrs..
I am using Piwik and Statcounter on my sites...
If you are into Blackhat, you should avoid Google Analytics.
Ask yourself the following question:
Do you really want Google to know exactly what you are doing?
