    So I've always known not to use G Analytics for anything BH related, but I've been lazy and used it for my White hat sites. Recently though, I'm just fed up with all the bullshit G does. This video in particular from the guys at Market Samurai is pretty rage inducing. http://content.noblesamurai.com/rank-tracker-samurai-special-offer/


    What are some good free alternatives to using G analytics? I need something easily integrated into wordpress. Preferably through plugin, I've gotten accustom to the ease of using the GA wordpress plugin...

    Do you really believe every high pressure sales thread you see or listen to?

    They point out a valid problem (Google locking down keyword data) and I'm looking for solutions to it. I'm obviously not buying their product (It doesn't even address the problem). It's like you didn't even read the post.

    I looked into Piwik, they still seem to have the "no keyword defined" problem though. Is this just standard and unavoidable now a days?

    The "no keyword defined" problem isn't anything you can avoid, it's not a hidden feature in Google Analytics.
    It's happen when you click through from the SERP. Just like when you cloak/hide your referrer to any cpa company or similar to not show the real url(query containing your KW) from the site that actually sent the traffic.

    Piwic gives you some serious insights though. Well worth using it too.
