    Hi

    I use statcounter on a lot of my domains but it doesn't seem to keep past visit or logs.
    Can anyone recommend a script etc i can use so i can put code on say index.php of any site and it records them stats on one central location.

    thanks

    paul

    Google Analytics? Gives masses of data, and you just need to stick a little bit of code on each page you want to track.

    Hi Edwin.

    I have looked at that and its the scary thought of telling google your business which i know is old school thinking. I was seeing if there is anything i can install on website A then install script/code on website B and website C etc then i can look at website A for all stats together.

    If you know what i mean.

    Don't worry - seems like everyone is queuing up to let G know everything about them. I like the stats that awstats produces.

    Only one I've heard of is awstats but it's years since I've used it.

    Google pretty much know your business anyway :)

    If you use Adsense, they've got data from that.
    If you use Chrome, they've got data from that.
    If you use Google search, they've got data from that.
    etc.

    So while I appreciate it can look scary, you're depriving yourself of a genuinely useful tool without really "hiding" much from them.
