Best website statistics package?

math0ne Re:None (79 comments)

Let me just start by saying, I'm no expert on web statistics. But, i am a web developer.

Assuming that I:

* Only care about PEOPLE (not robots) visiting my site
* Use a javascript tracker
* Account for a margin of error (Only 99% of traffic to my sites use JS)

How can my statistics be scewed by cacheing, as the individual people will still report statistics by JS regardless of the cache. Plus you can get a good measure of stat scewedness by comparing JS tracking with log analyzing.

Anyways, I'm of the camp that stats may not be fully accurate but they're very usefull.
