Tips & Warnings

Google Analytics works fairly well, but it is not 100 per cent accurate. Actually, it is very difficult to get website traffic that is 100 per cent accurate, but it can give you a good enough indication at to where your traffic is coming from and how much traffic you are actually getting.
