Hello. New to this group. I host several sites at Bluehost.com for
myself and clients. Both Webalizer and Awstats are available for my
use, and I have both enabled on most domains.
I'm confused as Webalizer's stats are often 1.5 times higher than
those of Awstats, sometimes more. This month, for example, one of my
sites shows 6911 visits on Awstats from 2479 unique visitors, and
Webalizer for the same site shows 12371 visits from 3695 Unique Sites
and 1216 unique URLs.
How can I compare the two, and which set of stats do I take to
potential advertisers? How much of the difference is simply "apples
and oranges," in that Webalizer and Awstats simply read and interpret
the servers differently?
