    hey,

    i need to fix the thing in 1-2 days max.

    can you advise me how can i track 1200 domains with low to medium traffic? google analytics is out of the question. piwik doesnt handle so many domains, memory leaks and big problems with database.

    i need an external JS solution, cause the sites are split over 10 servers and i dont want to play around with apache logs.

    thanks. really.

    I have used addfreestats for dozens of low traffic sites to keep on track, what happens on them. But it lacks of filtering domains then...

    Maybe own tracking: http://www.tracewatch.com/ They say PHP or JS installation for tracker code. I should try myself too :)

    i want to track unique visitors, time on site and incoming kws.


    those are landing pages

    thanks

    edit.
    this seems cool: http://www.dejkam.com/twatch/

    specifically i need to compare >1000 websites for those metric. piwik could do that, but it fails with so many websites. do you know if this can do it?

    @Rushdie

    Why g00g is out of the question?

    You can easily setup multiple domain support and have a single JS to handle everything, then you can all the stats aggregated and you can always drilldown to see the split.

    *g00g will soon kill 3rd party tracking by enforcing SSL search (currently this affects only logged in users but it's bound to happen soon enough)
    **Not sure if you are talking about subdomains but it doesn't matter. You can tweak g00g analytics to handle subdomains, directories and top level domains

    You can read all about it here:

    Code:
    http://code.google.com/apis/analytics/docs/tracking/gaTrackingSite.html
    http://code.google.com/apis/analytics/docs/concepts/gaConceptsDomains.html
    
    Hope this helps

    i cant risk plugging in 1200 domains to GA, i would rather loose referer tracking cause those are pretty much emd domains. i really mostly need just the visitors count

    Well, you can't do a single solution for all (footprint) so you will need to open multiple tracking accounts

    OR

    have a small 1x1 px image, host it on different domains, call it from the footer of each website (don't forget to add a random parameter to avoid cache) and track hits on the hosting that you use for the image.

    This way you will be able to gather around enough information and keep it private.
    No referrer that way, unless you code JS that will pass the HTTPREF of a page (you will have to triple encode the URL for this to work)

    well if you want to track Loads of stuff then offcourse analytics will be your answer(but in your situation you cant risk all the work by putting it on google).While Piwik works on Mysql which cause heavy loads. so if you want to use Pwiki then just buy a separate VPS or Or server and load piwik there. At this time it might be the most possible solution.

    I am Making Tracker my self. Which is 95% MySql Free but it gonna take some time may be 1~2 weeks before i can give some sneak previews. so for now my suggestion will be to Offload piwik to some server and track all the records.
