And now, Sane Solutions!
Story Text:

Sane Solutions have announced the release of Net Tracker Lite, aimed at the small and low traffic site sector. Much like the glorified hit counters many bloggers favor, it's free, and (apparently) easy to use.

From the press release:

NetTracker Lite users can take advantage of many of the features found in commercial versions of the NetTracker line of Web analytics solutions, including advanced filtering and drill down capabilities, flexible reporting options including a calendar-based reporting interface, and the ability to share browser-based reports on the Web or export reports to software tools such as Excel and Word.

Jupiters Eric Peterson says that this is likely a direct response to Google aquiring Urchin and WebTrends breaking free of NetIQ - well, yeah...

My suspicion is that had this announcement come last week we would have shrugged and said, "Yeah, that's nice of them to give away software, especially considering their's is a relatively mature application." In the face of the Google and WebTrends announcements, however, I think it's safe to say that a "Googled" Urchin, an autonomous WebTrends and free NetTracker creates a fairly significant change in the overall analytics landscape, hopefully for the better.

wow thats a good offer

I looked at their demo and they are providing a good freebie. I thought they would withhold more stuff. I wouldn't be surprised if some hosting companies offer this to their clients.

yep good ol' sitemeter

i really do like sitemeter. yes, it looks like sh*t, but I've been using it since like '99 and I just can't seem to drop the habit.

Thank you

Nick, thanks for helping to spread the word about NetTracker Lite. And thank you, goodroi, for the kind words. We wanted to give away something good, something that people can really use.
