Anyone using Open Web Analytics?

Has anyone tried OWA? And if so, what do you think of it?

I’m after something super lightweight and self-hosted to report basic usage stats on a site – clicks, bounce rates, etc. Can’t really justify Simple Analytics, as much as I’d like to, as this is a free gig. I’ve used Matomo (aka Piwik) before and I’m happy installing that, but before I take the plunge just wondered if anyone had any experience in OWA as an alternative. I’m a tad bewildered by all the tracking options and wonder if this tool might be overkill.

Re: Anyone using Open Web Analytics?

I use this: http://www.fri-stats.com/

Demo site : http://www.fri-stats.com/stats/

It is interesting to observe how the robots visit the textpattern engine:

No one knows that the site uses statistics

Not heard of that. Interesting how it bypasses some ad blockers. The demo is slow but it might be their server. I’ve downloaded it and will have a look, thanks. Might need to brush up on my Russian first though ;)

The base for collecting statistics is installed on your server.

General visit with a code like this:

<txp:php>include "stats/c.php";</txp:php>

A bot filtering request with the following code:

<script src="data:text/javascript;charset=utf-8;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUoJzxpbWcgc3R5bGU9ImRpc3BsYXk6bm9uZSIgc3JjPSIvZnJpL2MucGhwP3JlZj0nK2VzY2FwZShkb2N1bWVudC5yZWZlcnJlcikrJyZ1cmw9Jytlc2NhcGUoZG9jdW1lbnQuVVJMKSsnJnNjcj0nKygodHlwZW9mKHNjcmVlbik9PSJ1bmRlZmluZWQiKT8iIjpzY3JlZW4ud2lkdGgrIiB4ICIrc2NyZWVuLmhlaWdodCkrJyI+Jyk="></script>

We don’t tell anyone that we are collecting statistics.
No one can find out that we are collecting statistics

I asked the author to make an English version, he is in no hurry.
