    Tracking script.

    My vote for best site logging/tracking/statistics script goes to Advance Logger by

    I'd been searching for ages for a free script to provide me with comprehensive and useful tracking and statistics for my site, and as soon as I found Advance Logger my search was over.

    The free version is fully functional, and it is the version that I use. Because it is advertiser supported, there are no limitations to the functionality.

    I can get a good idea of page views, and even track vertain visitor's paths through the site. It supports the usual: entry pages, referrers, exit pages, summary, etc.

    The only thing I would like to have that the free version doesn't yet have is a summary of the visitor's browser resolution. It current has this feature per-visitor, but does not yet display totals.

    It's a perl script, and it is a bit slow to view. It runs in real time and the logfile is small. It is cleaned and cached automatically. The logger module itself is quite simple and I imagine it would not be hard to rewrite it in PHP if server load was a huge problem.

    This is great for webmasters of sites < 1000 uniques per day.

    Any other comments? What alternatives have you tried? I tried AXS script too, but have not spent much time testing it. Ease of use in AXS isn't as straightforward, but it looks very powerful.

    ODtrack is good and fast coz it uses PHP.

    No database and U can name the track-link instead of the full URL that U r tracking. So everything looks neat.
