    Why is Google Analytics is better than Awstat? Why does Awstat record more traffic than Google Analytics ?

    The most accurate logs are any that will read directly off your server and not a 3rdparty tracking system. Google Analytics (GA) uses a 3rd party tracking system. Basically every time a visitor goes to your site APACHE will store this information in log files which later Awstats reads off. What does all this mean? It means that Awstats would be providing you with the most accurate data aside from you reading your web server logs personally.
