Google Analytics
Putting People First needs better web analytics (or statistics).

So I would like to know what free or paid online programmes exist and how they perform. I tried StatCounter and looked at Google Analytics (which is by invitation only). Does anyone have experience with these or other programmes? What can you recommend?

UPDATE – 24 April 2006
Based on some of your input, I am currently experimenting with Performancing (which has a great-looking Java interface) and Logdy (which provides more detailed statistics). Both are really new — Performancing was launched in November, Logdy in March. If any of you has some experience with these services, please contact me.
