    i got hit with thin content penalty, and google didn't accept my reconsideration request. so i built a new site, but i am paranoid to add google analytics to it since my account is associated with my penalty site.

    should i be or does it not matter?

    i also installed clicky and piwik, but don't know if they are any good or not compared to google analytic.

    What is the reason to install analytics in your case? Just forget about it... for a year at least.

    The reason is to see if my website is gaining visitors and what is the best ranked content. What else?

    I wouldn't use both as that can unnecessarily slow down your site. I'd say piwik is better just because its self hosted so you own all the data.

    I always install my analytics and webmaster tools whenever I install a new site on my server.

    Why did you use the same google account on your new site as the site that was penalised?

    Your making unnecessary footprints imo

    Web-server logs were developed for that. Install Webalizer or AWStats or something like this if you want. Enjoy!

    Basically you dont want to install analytic from same account.so why dont you get a new one.all other tools mentioned here are not as good and stats can be misleading
