For a personal monetized website which do you think is better?
I prefer Analytics myself as their data seems to be more precise. thats just my personal opinion though as I was using Analytics long before I came across Statcounter. As the saying goes "Stick with what you know best".
I prefer analytics. I think it's more robust. Plus, it's google. Even if they have th data wrong, what they think is the only thing that matters anyways. just kidding...sort of.
Plus, google is always on the cutting edge, might as well get used to their apps.
Analytics is great, I now know exactly what keywords are making adsense money. Plus if you have products for sale on clickbank and other places you can set up goals and find out why people buy them.
Analytics is also an endless source of keywords that you need to be writing about, and since they're related to your hubs, you'll find them easy to write about!
Wow I expected a bigger show of support for StatCounter as I always hear about it.
Guess I'll probably end up going with Analytics then.
My vote is for Analytics as well, it's always provided me with excellent information.
I use both but analytics is better. I started wih statcouter before discovering analytics.

I love to see what people were looking for when they found my hubs, it helps me choosing new titles and see which questions I left unanswered.I was hoping to see keywords under Traffic Sources, but I have to click on each hub and then stats, and then keywords.... quite a long process to check them...

I am new to Google Analytics, and sometimes I think I understand what I am seeing, and often I don't.A short while ago, I was checking the Google Analytics report on Top Traffic sources, and under keywords (the ones people have used to find my Hubs) the top contender is not even slightly remotely...
