    Hi, Which is the best way to track traffic for a website and/or forum ?
    Currently I am using statpress plugin for websites - coz in google analytics we need to add code to EACH page - I have 100-500 pages on my sites :(

    Is Awstats good ? is it easy to configure. If anyone can guide me on this, it wud rock !

    Awstats is good for getting basic information about the amount of traffic and the backlinks. It is very easy to use as well. But if you can get you pages in Google Analytics then you would be able to track the pages in a better manner.

    It comes included as standard with lots of hosting accounts. You should probably ask your host if they can provide it to your site.

    It is free and licenced under GNU GPL, if you have knowledge about webhosting administrations you can easily install it on your website. As for me awstats is the best tool for your needs

    I checked with my host, they said the cost is $12 per year. Is it true or they are just trying to rip me off ? lol ;)
