I am evaluating this Open Tracker, which I do like a lot, and a free Open source? program called PHPMyVisites. I am tracking the same pages and there is a significant difference between what OT shows me and what PHPmyVisites shows me. How can I know which is right? Why would there be sucha differnece. Here is a couple examples from yesterday Sept 11 Both programs are running on Pacific time zone btw.
OT Visits Views
indexnew.html 1877 2547
indexnew2.htm 1,263 1,628
Day selected (11-09-2005) Day - 7
Page views 10683 - -
Unique page views 24 - -
Highest number of pages for one visitor? 37
PHPs don't make much sense to me, esp unique page views of 24?? and over 10,000 page views Those two figures don't seem to make much sense taken together. Their stuff seems confusing, not sure how accurate it is. ANy ideas whey they discrepcny in views on those two pages, and its like that for all the pages, a big differnce. Thanks for any light you can shed.
I am hopeful OT support can chime in on this, and just why their stuff is more accurate, as I am inclined to beleive. But why? Is this other program just not know what its doing? But anybodys oopinion is welcome.
