There are two top free web analytics solutions worth considering:
1.Google Web Analytics
Google Analytics is the enterprise-class web analytics solution that gives you rich insights into your website traffic and marketing effectiveness. Powerful, flexible and easy-to-use features now let you see and analyze your traffic data in an entirely new way. With Google Analytics, you’re more prepared to write better-targeted ads, strengthen your marketing initiatives and create higher converting websites.
Google Analytics makes it easy to turn page views into profits. And when used with other products in the Google ecosystem—including AdWords, AdSense, Website Optimizer, Webmaster Tools and others—it’s easy to gain insights across marketing activities.
