This depends on what statistics system is currently active for your website:

Google Analytics

My preferred stats system, Analytics is a powerful yet free website traffic monitoring system provided by Google.
To install it, Analytic’s scripts must be installed in your website, then data is accumulated from that point on. These scripts are provided when setting up your Analytics account. NB You will need to have a Google ID to create your Analytics account.

To view and analyse the data, visit the Analytics page: www.google.com/analytics and sign in using your Google ID.

Webaliser et all

Your web hosting package may provide a statistics package for your website using one of these tools:

  • Webaliser
  • AWStats
  • Logaholic
  • Analog

These tools process your web hosting server’s activity logs to present activity etc for your site. These tools are considered to be less accurate than Analytics and are unable to provide as much activity data because of the way that they work.

Other stats packages

There are also a number of other website stats packages including:

Stat Counter
