    Hi everyone,
    Just wondering between Google analytics and Statcounter what is the difference and which one would you prefer?
    Flippa actually uses both as standard in determining site traffic verification but what is your choice?

    both are good tools and you may use GA and SC at the same time..

    in terms of site monitoring- Google Analytics has more features than SC

    No State Counter has more features and accurate data than G Analytic! It Also Shows you the IP Address of the Visitors!!!

    Why would you say that?
    Have you tested out Statcounter's Beta mode?

    Google is the best and most reliable source. Its webmaster and analytic tools are great.

    Google Analytics can help you out in finding the related information you need. But if you need some more indepth analysis which you don't get from Google analytics, then other tools might be helpful.

    I like Analytics more because it gives more detailed information, like where the hits are coming from, what keyword, etc. It's also really easy to integrate. I'm not too sure about stat counter.

    Main differences are:
    1: SEO marketer use Google analytic while Stat counter is good for Webmasters.
    2:GA Show updates after some interval of time i thing after one day..but Stat counter show updates after a every single visit.
    3:Statcounter is easy to use while GA not.

    Stat counter simply displays the number of viists your pages received while Google Analytics provides an in depth data of traffic sources, keywords and many other things.

    The beta statcounter does also provide that insight, though you will need to pay more if you want more than 500 logs.

    Analytic's and statcounter are the best tools which give exact no of visits a website has. I am using both the tools on my website.

    I would like to say I prefer Google Analystices often! Anyway, you may also use Stacounter as the reference!

    no one would ever remain at the top , take both of them in consideration and make a balance would be wiser.
