Why do other stat tools show different numbers?

Every analytics tool uses different methods of collecting and analyzing data. So it is to be expected that you get different numbers from for example Google Analytics and One.com Statistics.

One.com Statistics uses the log files to collect data, while Google Analytics uses page tagging with Javascript. It is not possible to register visits from bots with Javascript, so compared to One.com Statistics, Google Analytics will most likely show a lower amount of visitors.

If you want a complete analysis of traffic on your website, we recommend using a combination of tools; for example Google Analytics and One.com Statistics.
