I tested out a new stats package this evening. It’s by far the best externally-hosted traffic monitoring site I’ve come across – you’re not expected to link back to them, and the feature set is extremely impressive. Even so, after four years I’m still looking for a stats package I’m actually happy using. I’d prefer to have something I can host myself, in which case it needs to be able to cope with 2 million plus page views per month, and I want something that lists all referrers, not just the most recent 100 or the top 100. I also want full (and clickable) referring URLs, not just domains. If anyone can suggest anything that suits, where I can tag my pages (rather than software that analyzes the raw Apache log files like Webalizer or Analog) I’d be really grateful. At the moment I use AXS, which I love, but it can’t cope with the amount of traffic the kittens receive without me having to delete the log files every day.
Anyway, I was looking over this new stats package, and a particular visitor to blogjam caught my eye.
I’m tempted not to dwell on this too long. So I’ll just say that it’s nice to receive vistors from Islamic countries with such unexpected interests.
