Free PHP MySQL Traffic Stats

Found a new (to me) web stats program to try. I’m needing something with more detailed stats to track growth and here’s what I’m loving so far: phpTrafficA – Web statistics made easy:

phpTrafficA is a GPL statistical tool for web traffic analysis, written in php and mySQL. It can track access counts to your website, search engines, keywords, and referrers that lead to you, operating systems, web browsers, visitor retention, path analysis, and a lot more!

One of the features I’m in love with is the keyword section, poke around in there and you’ll find the search engines listed with which keywords used. Nice!

ETA: Forgot to mention another sweet feature…You can look up a single day and see what keywords were used, which referrers sent traffic, what the popular pages were. Or view the stats for a single page, see what keywords are being used to find it, which search engine likes it, who’s sending traffic to it, sweet stuff!

You can also track multi-sites with this whether it’s on the same server or not (pixel tracking). If the sites are all on the same server, no pixel needed (nice!).

If you’re using this on a wordpress blog, just plunk the php code in the main index.php file.

I mentioned another one I really like some time ago: TraceWatch. You may want to give that one a shot too and see which one you prefer (good path analysis as well).


I've been trying to find my way online for more years than I care to admit.
