    I use blvd status I love it, I use GA too but the live stats and conversions section are awesome in blvd also the keyword rankings live are sweet too.

    I prefer Analytics by far... with awstats it seems like every single pageview is recorded as a unique visit.. also it seems like every single .js or .css or whatever else type of file also gets counted as a visit. So the visit numbers are very overinflated - but of course everyone likes to see high visit numbers. Maybe thats why aweber is popular ;)

    Yeah, I'm kinda addicted to it. When my phone rings and the customer tells me they found me on Google I look at the BLVD right away to find out what keyword phrase they used and what position I was in the serps

    No one wants to accept the fact that higher than actual numbers is worse than lower than actual ;)

    I use GA and you know most of all seo experts use free analytics. all seo experts believe it. i use many but i din't get big gap. I got that GA is better so i like Google analytics.

    Have you considered that Awstats is just inflated? :D

    It counts traffic from bots, there not real visitors.

    Well Awstats is pretty much very accurate since it is integrated with your own hosting/site. Analytics is the same but provides more info on keywords, where traffic is coming from, etc.. I would say use both for different things. Awstats = traffic ANalytics= Keywords, Traffic Source, etc.

    I am doing a 1-week experiment on 4 tracking tools including GA.. All of them are web based so let's see the result.

    I use GA and I'm satisfied with the results GA is producing coz its more accurate than other site tracker.
