    I'm seeing printscreens with graphs that show you how many visitors your site gets, and also where those visitors are coming from, but i have no idea what tool should i use to see those stats. (a free one)

    pls recommend me one.

    Google Anal and Statcounter. I use statcounter 99% of the time and just use G to see bounce rate.

    AW Stats, much more reliable, and accurate than any of these "javascript" based stat counters

    AWStats processes actual apache logs, so there is literally 0 room for errors

    Frankly, I'd stay away from Analytics unless you're positive your site will be squeaky clean.

    You could try StatCounter. Easy installation through its plugin. Been using it for months and it provides good info about the visitors, much better than GA.

    If you are looking for an open source alternative then I can recomment Piwik. It offers the same depth as Google Analytics does and can be self hosted if you choose. I used it to measure live reactions to tweets and posts etc before Google started including live in the results. Its a good alternative if you want to keep Google at arms length.

    The thing is google can track everything you're doing online if you have an adsense account + analytics + adword tool + gmail + insights...

    I guess they are quick at understanding that you're an IM guy.

    I am in the process of disabling my analytics account. Don't want to make it so easy for google
