Can anyone reccomend a good, free, web stats service?
One that doesnt force u to put ad's on your site.

I'm looking to switch from Nedstat Basic (a free, decent web stats service but forces u to put a button on your site and makes your stats public) I realized having public stats is probably not a good idea.

Thanks :)

Is there a free version of "Webtrends"?

There are plenty of free and cheap perl scripts available at Hot Scripts [hotscripts.com] or if you have access to your raw log files you may like to try Analog [analog.cx] or the one I prefer LogFile Analyse [jan-winkler.de] ..both free.

Thanks maccas... Lots to choose from in that hotscripts link, thanks :)

If you're looking for a basic javascript counter I and a lot of my friends use sitemeter. You can set it so no one else can see your stats or even the number although you have to pay for a completely invisible counter. But it's nowhere near as good as mining your raw log files :D

The basic free javascript counter I use is addfreestats, not the result of much study but the first product I ran across that seemed to do the job, and it does. I often curse its limitations, but it gives me enough information to fine tune my site.

I agree with shelleycat that it is not as good as direct access to logs, but I do not have such access (you gets what you pays for).

The Hotscripts category you want would probably not be the one linked above, but this one: Remotely Hosted/Web Traffic Analysis [hotscripts.com].
The other ones are scripts to install on your own server and as such not really comparable to Nedstat & Co.
