I’ve been a user of StatCounter for quite a while, but I’m testing out Google Analytics on a couple of sites to compare numbers, features, etc. since a lot of people like GA and it is free where I am paying for StatCounter.
I also have my unique setting on StatCounter set to 24 hours, meaning you can only count as a unique once in a 24 hour span. So, kinda weird. Not sure which numbers to trust. I’m thinking some of the pageviews could potentially be a sort of cache issue, maybe? (Don’t know if that makes sense). But, the uniques, I can’t figure.
Besides that, though:
GA Pros: Much, much nicer interface and stats organization. Free.
SC Pros: Good customer service. Live tracking.
So, I’m thinking about it…
