- Setting Up Your Own Web Site Stats App?

rate this thread
been more than satisfactory except in one regard; timely reporting of web
site stats. Two years ago when I first subscribed one could request updated
site stats and there they were. Then they announced that because the
demand for instant updates slowed down their system, updates were only
going to be available once per 24 hours. So, come midnight (their time)
one could see the previous days traffic analysis for your site. Little by
little that availability has been delayed so that now often you can't see
what happened on your site until 6 or more hours into the next day. Granted
there isn't any real reason to be following site stats so closely, I admit
to that. Still I've been reading about other stat apps than awstats used
by my server and wonder what's needed to try some out or if it's possible
without having your own pc the online server. Is there a good tutorial on
how to do this or are there some proper questions to put to the server folk
that would make it doable? They have a lot of services available but
nowhere is there any mention of do-it-yourself stats. Anyone been this
route before and have advice?
Re: Setting Up Your Own Web Site Stats App?
OK...Once again I find what I'm looking for right after giving up and
posting for help. I've been looking at a free stat data package
Extremetracking.com. Anyone have any experience with this package? Is
there anything I should know like perhaps how search engines react to
this software on one's site? Apparently it's just a modification of one's
html coding and so could be added without a server being inconvenienced
by it's adition. Suggestions?
