Which statistics analyzer is more accurate?  No one seems to agree.  Both count in different ways and people agree that none of methods are most accurate.

Google Analytics (Javascript on each page)

  • Visitors whose browers have javascript disabled will not be included in the statistics.

  • Awstats track visitor by IP address
  • Good for seeing the actual 404 errors on your site
  • Better for network administrators
