    when I compare our webmaster tools and google analytics sometimes it is a little off but not by too much. We use google analytics on all of our projects and have been happy with results. Our clients like the fact it comes from Google and not another company they haven't heard about.. anyone else??

    I think google analytics is good enough for most cases. The traffic seems to be tracked wisely and it does keep track of many things its hard to tell (like referral for clicks). So yes, I think its quite a good program!

    one thing i've noticed is that clicks per adwords account is always higher than google cpc clicks per analytics account, i'm sure there's a good reason for it, but i just don't know it yet!

    Don't think it is as accurate as often very different from the stats of my hostgator account.

    Google analytic reports it all rightly while others don't... So usually u see the count to be lesser than others

    google analytics has the best and very accurate results, it will filter all your useless traffic, and tells you about your real visitors.

    don't worry abt ur traffic.

    None of the tool is 100% accurate and even google is also saying this statement but still google analytics is giving almost 90 - 99% accuracy as my experience, which is much better than other free tools present in the market.

    No its not accurate as they try to cut out the bad traffic but also cuts out some of the good traffic. You would be getting more visitors than google says

    I use google analytics but the only problem i have is that i couldnt see the current stats. You have to wait next day to see what your stats for today.

    Not all wordpress templates lets you edit the footer through the admin section this all depends. But you can always go into the code and find footer.php
