The web site traffic analysis service provided by this site provides 15 useful free reports. The information is much more detailed than that from typical "hit counters" that are available for free on the Internet.

The reports are not sent by e-mail. Instead the user accesses them by logging in to the WebSTAT site.

Reports include traffic by hour, day, and month; web browser used by visitor; operating system of visitor (Windows 95, 98, Macintosh, etc.); search engines or other pages from which the visitors came; keywords used to find the page(s); etc. The reports can also be produced for different months, to analyze traffic patterns over time.

Technical Remarks:

The site assigns an account number to the user and, at the time of this review, did not offer a means to change the account name to something easier to remember.

The user can insert the JavaScript code from this site into multiple pages on a web site. However most of the reports will be for the combined totals of these pages, rather than broken out separately by page.

The JavaScript code, which records the traffic, places a small image on the page. This image can be clicked by viewers to go to the WebSTAT site. The user who doesn't want to display this advertising can obtain another version for $9.95/month that omits the image.
