    I heard that is better to put at the beginning of new site web counter, not analytics. Because when I use analytics google don`t show all visitors, he wants to pay at adwords. Is that true or not?

    a counter? Like a visitor counter? That's super-outdated. If you're worried about Google spying on you, just use a self hosted analytics solution, such as Piwik

    If you are doubt about accuracy Google Analytics... you can install more 1 - 2 scripts of stat counter services. e.g: StatCounter.com.

    You can run both and compare both.
