Web Traffic Analysis Services
However, here we gonna discuss about another similar web traffic analysis service, StatCounter. It will store your traffic data specifically to your website and later on you can sit back and review the gathered information. It serves more details in some specific areas compared to Google Analytics too. The best advice I can offer you on this topic is that do not depend on one specific analytic service to track your site visitors if you wanna know more about them. Have a couple at least. I've been using both Google Analytics and StatCounter.
How StatCounter Works
Further, if you wanna know what keywords or search queries brought more visitors onto your pages, you can make use Keyword Analysis section to find out what keywords been most effective. There you can find some clues how to turn your pages more search engine friendly.
Additionally, StatCounter let you monitor each visitor individually including their recent activities, operating system, screen resolution, Internet Service Provider and IP address. I loved that feature 'cause I could spot some spammers used to leave spammy comments on this blog. It's fun if you ask me ;) Further, those factors will help you to optimize your site navigation and to offer better user experience too.
If you into SEO tactics, you can also review which search engines worth optimizing for. Also, you can take extra actions to optimize your site for other search engines which have been generating less traffic than you initially expected.
