My website gives me one number, my server another, and then my landing pages give me another...Do you guys know of any software that could be helpful and consistent?

They are all consistent if you take the time to understand what they are measuring. And they can all be helpful if, again, you take the time to understand what they are measuring.

You need to decide what it is you want to measure most - what KPIs are important to you most?

Rarely pageviews. Possibly daily uniques (Defining a uniquue user over a fixed period is incredibly hard.... it's the definition as much as the coding... another thread...), Clicks away from the site? (Maybe - especially if you are selling PPC), sales?

So much to measure. Not all is important.

agreed with the previously mentioned things. There are many tools for analytics out there. The first thing you have to do is understand what tools exactly you want. For example you have tools for the page rank, links related tools, keyword related ones, for sitemaps, for search engines, domain related, and many other for the purpose of serving proper web statistics. If you tell us what you need then we might be able to point you at the right direction.
