    Hi All, GA (Google analytics) takes a while to add. I own 100+ websites and create new ones for flipping every week. Is there a good plugin or some easier/ trustworthy and reliable stat reader ? Statpress is BS !!! Some days it will show 900 visits and GA will show only 12. I have no clue how Statpress gathers data but its always blown waaay out of proportion for me :(

    Any suggestions would be great.
    Jo

    If you're selling sites regularly, I strongly recommend you stick to GA, even if it is more work. Buyers are usually familiar with GA and can be scared off if you use other tracking systems. It is not impossible to sell sites without it (I've sold sites with Statpress, Clicky, Statcounter, Awstats etc.) but if you're marketing to the Flippa crowd they are used to seeing "verified" Google Analytics.

    Thanks Meathead. I agree with you. I was hoping for some alternatives for "smaller" websites as it gets difficult to manage stats but I think GA is the most reliable on Flippa and outside of it as well.
