I'm in need of good website statistics program, free or not. Does anybody know a good one?
Which one are you using? Is your web hosting company giving you one?

I've got Cpanel with some built-in stats on my main site, but for all practical tracking I use Webtrends Live (which is becoming Webtrends On Demand). It's damned expensive though, and it costs me several hundred dollars a month for the visitor traffic I pull in, so really I can't recommend it.
Visitorville is about the same price I think, but more entertaining.
Both Webtrends Live and Visitorville use embedded code in the pages themselves. You can also get a version of Webtrends that will analyse your raw log data.

there seem to be two main types: one uses separate code for each page and one uses unchanging code for each page.
the freebies all have different levels of use at which they want to get paid.
one that uses separate code for each page is icdirect.com. their servers used to go into overload years ago and I'm not sure how professionally-run they are, but they've been around for quite a while. This one can tell you immediately which page has which count.
one that is also useful is statcounter.com and you only need one piece of code for all pages on a domain. you can get stats that include hit tracking per visitor and other good stuff, but for free you can only track the last 100 hits. for detail, anyay.
