7 Free Statistics Trackers For Your Website

As some of you probably now know, WebTrends Live at
http://www.webtrendslive.com no longer offer the free Personal
Edition of their statistics tracker.

Affected are hundreds of thousands of websites that still use the
free WebTrends Live Personal Edition to keep track of their site
statistics such as the number of daily visits and pageviews.

Many webmasters are probably oblivious of this change and still
display the WebTrends Live code on their site. Some are left
clueless as to which other free statistics trackers offer
comparable tracking that WebTrends Live Personal Edition once
provided.

The email notice from WebTrends Live stated that past statistics
had been deleted and are no longer available. Members who wish to
continue using WebTrends Live need to upgrade to the eBusiness
Edition that cost $35 monthly.

For most small webmasters, the idea of paying $35 a month for a
site statistics tracker is exorbitant, especially when they are
faced with their monthly hosting bill already.

In this brief article, I'll spotlight some free site statistics
trackers that webmasters may consider using.
