StatCounter is a free website traffic analysis program that allows you to monitor page hits, visitor counts, most popular pages, referral pages, visitor paths, duration of visits, geographical statistics, exit links, downloads, and so on.
Unlike some free packages, StatCounter's code is invisible. The stats provided are time-limited in the free version (though you can download logs if you want to keep the history).
I prefer StatCounter for daily use because the data is very readable and I don't always need to access in-depth analyses that cover long periods of time. When I do require this information, or additional metrics such as bounce rates, I turn to Google Analytics.
If you want a statistics tracking program that's simple to install and easy to read, I'd recommend giving this a try.
