    Could I get some recommendations on software for analyzing my sites traffic patterns. My host provides raw logs and some stats, but I'm looking for individual page views.

    Low cost/free is preferrable. Don't need lots of bells and whistles, just something to read the raw logs.

    Thanks.

    I use Happy Log, from www.axolot.com .

    It's either $30 or $40, I don't remember which. They have a free trial period before you have to register and pay.

    It runs on your Windows PC and analyzes the logs you've downloaded.

    It's pretty basic, but that's all I need, and it sounds as if it may be what you need also.

    If you want a free solution then Analog is the best ...you have to spend a little time configuring the analog.conf file to show important things like SE phrases etc

    www.analog.cx

    If you are willing to pay a little then Mach5's FastStats is good

    If you are a big ecommerce outfit and ready to spend thousands of dollars for a analysis program then WebTrends Suite is the best....if you configure it correctly it can track in the induvidual user level...i dont think you are looking for this

    The logs at your host are usually in html format.
    What I do, rather than read the raw html, is download to my system and then upload them into their own folder on my site so I can view them online.

    Just make a folder called stats. Upload the logs into stats. Then go to your site and type in the extensions.

    http://www.yoursite/stats/logs.html

    They should read just fine.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I downloaded the free version of weblogexpert earlier today and will check out analog.cx. Anything that's fairly straightforward and cheap/free will suit my needs, since all I'm really looking for is info on individual pageviews.

    Quick question, on weblogexpert and analog, are there seperate areas for pageviews? I saw information on requests and, on weblogexpert, individual visitors to a page, but not pure pageviews.

    Thanks again.

    netsweatcom , analog dont have a graphical interface like the other tools mentioned here , its a command line tool configured thro a unix style text file analog.conf which makes it more flexible for the geeky types but gives a hard time for casual users

    So if you are not comfortable with this go for the other easy to use tools lile FastStats or happy log...its worth the money investing on a log analysis tool....because as they say there is a gold mine in your logs...you just have to find it

    Why nobody recollects Webalizer (http://www.mrunix.net/webalizer/ )?

    With GeoIP patch (http://sysdlabs.hypermart.net/proj/g...2.20020826.zip) it even can determine the countries statistics in offline mode!!!

    And if you are interested by search phrases statistics, try the Golden Phrases
