What is the reason behind the different numbers, even when the data is quite trivial like unique visitors and page loads? Google Analytics requires a Javascript callback to Google's domain and will not record traffic from users with Javascript disabled or the majority of bots. AWStats is literally reading your webserver's logs and will record (in one ...

There are a few possibilities: As seriocomic mentioned, the link from their site to yours has moved to another page (or was removed) Referrer spam (most likely option if the other site is completely unrelated to your own) The "link" was actually an embedded image or other multimedia content (in which case I'd expect you would see more than five visits, but ...

Many sites, like online news, Twitter etc, have dynamic content pages that are constantly being updated or refreshed. This content may have been archived or moved from the that particular page into the archives (or off entirely). Try using the 'site' operator in Google to locate the reference to your site: site:theirwebaddress.com "yoururl"

If you want something specifically for ads, take a look at http://openx.org, I use it for my site and I actually got accepted into their hosted solution beta, which I love because it gives me my own little ad server :) I've had great results with managing and targeting my site's advertising as it's a blend of "manually chosen" ad runs & major network. ...

This is right up my ally, however, I use Sawmill and other tools and do not use AWStats. I would suggest that there are better site performance products out there that are free and I suggest that you install one of them. It will help you to better know what is going on.

It depends on how your server is configured, but in general yes if you don't use it I would turn it off and it will save on server resources. Webalizer and Awstats do very similar things, they analyze your server's access log and turn it into readable data about your visitors. Depending on your traffic this can be relatively intensive, if you are running ...

You could try Piwik which is a self-hosted Analytics package. Another alternative would be to use Google Analytics and have a custom variable for each session, which is set by your server side script (PHP, et al).

Why do you implement Awstats into IIS? It is better to install it by means of Plesk and them use the statistics program via Plesk panel.

Awstats is very flexible about how it parses your log files. It uses a configuration parameter called LogFormat to know the format your log files. If you log additional fields, you would have to modify your LogFormat configuration to let awstats know what the extra fields mean. The official documentation for LogFormat is here: ...

I would compare a snapshot with your apache server logs, as a starting point. I generally see some tracking loss, but it's within 5%, as far as I can tell. Obviously 40% would render google analytics mostly useless. Perhaps your site has some blocking js error that is breaking the analytics in some browser. I'd start with chrome and move from there.

Successful hits on favicon.ico -> 49.9% This means that 49.9% of unique site visitors successfully requested favicon.ico. I don't think it necessarily means that 50.1% were "unsuccessful" in the sense that it resulted in error - it just means that 50.1% of visitors did not request the favicon, or maybe they did but was perhaps cached (304 - Not ...

I think you can solve this with mod_rewrite. Inside your root directory (generally public_html), place a .htaccess file with the following content: # Turn on URL rewriting RewriteEngine On # Installation directory RewriteBase / #Redirecting RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^www\.mysite\.org\/stats\/$ [NC] RewriteRule (.*) ...
