    Is there any place else to check my website traffic other than Google analytics?

    There are plenty of free trackers out there. Analytics is the most detailed. Statcounter is simple but effective, recommend it.

    I also use Statcounter and I would rate it over Analytics any day of the week.
    Paid version is good (bigger log size) if you are actually tracking positions and traffic for various keywords etc. But for general tracking the free version is sufficient.

    Piwik is better than google analytics... and I mean that.
    And it's free and easier to install than wordpress.

    It even does some of the stuff webmaster tools does... including showing you the rank/keyword someone searched for (what rank your site was to them) and what pages they visited and if they left and came back, etc

    To be honest they are the best for in place tracking (on the page) but the best for helping a site load fast and efficiently and for simple yet clear details that actually matter try webalizer or awstats and run in from the server log level.

    Haveamint.com is a great paid app. You can download it for free from various sources. Check out the demo on the site.

    Woopra is the best IMO. Live stats, live chat, many features, there is free and paid versions.
