    Any recommendation of a third-party web analysis/ web statistics software?

    I use Google Analytics, but need something much better that can track live:

    - Keywords found on any search engine
    - Backlinks
    - And anything related to track what my visitors click on my site.


    Any recommendation?

    I loved MyBlogLog which has been discontinued by Yahoo a year ago. They were able to track "search engine keywords", referrals as well as posts/pages that my visitors land.

    I quite like http://getclicky.com/

    If you want to bulk up your keyword lists from your referrers then you're best off going straight to your raw log files and parsing them out, because most of the stats packages miss some keyword strings.

    #3 you can do in Google Analytics if you play around with it.

    If your site has under 1,000 links, check out the free version of seo spyglass from the seo powersuite guys for #2. I love it.

    I hope you are refering google urchin (www.google.com/urchin/) we can track up-to 1000 domains.

    @ OP, you can try
    www.google.com/urchin/
    http://web.analytics.yahoo.com/
    If you are a high level Analytics user then go for
    Adobe's http://www.omniture.com/en/products/analytics
    &
    IBM's www.coremetrics.com

    Except this you can find 100's of Analytics providers out there. My question is can you trust those just bcz some one said go for it?!!!
    Always follow the masters. My practical advice.

    Beside the Google Help Forum (Which doesnt seem to be too active).
    Is there anywhere I can get help from (other forums etc.)?

    (Please PM me if you arent comfortable putting this in public, much appreciated)

    Google analytics help forum is active. Post a question there and you will get your answers soon. Yes it is not active as other google help forums, but it does works.
    why searching for other forums while siting in BHW :D. Most of the worlds top IM's are here.

    You're correct. It's the real-time analytics beta and it's taking about a week to get in after you ask.

    I have used webstat and google analytics. Both are interesting and have some goods.
    If you can use more then one stat you will surely have more insight.

    I like the new live GA stats, you have to 'get in it' though.

    I always use statcounter and google analytics.

    Analytics give you the tool to analyze the traffic while statcounter gives you real time details on the behavior of your visitors.
