SmarterStats 4.X Web Log Analytics Software Released

SmarterTools announces the release of SmarterStats 4.x. SmarterStats provides Web site statistics, custom reports, data mining, geographic mapping, spider and bot detection, an industry-leading Web interface with Silverlight(TM) dynamic charting, and more.

Understand Spider, Bot and Real Visitor Traffic

Version 4.x easily differentiates spider and bot traffic generated by search engines and other automated sources from actual user visits--a feature unavailable in conventional script-based solutions such as Google Analytics. Depending on site popularity, experts estimate that 30% to 60% of Web site traffic is generated by spiders or bots--making the tracking of these automated "visits" vital to effective Web marketing and SEO efforts.

Web Log Analytics You Can Trust

"SmarterStats is the perfect application to cost-effectively deliver relevant, accurate and detailed Web site reports," said Tim Uzzanti, CEO of SmarterTools. "Site owners, businesses and webmasters need statistics that they can trust without exposing their data to unrelated third parties. SmarterStats provides the solution without requiring them to spend time and money recoding their sites like competing script-based solutions."

All New AJAX Interface with Silverlight Graphs

SmarterStats 4.x joins the rest of SmarterTools' products (SmarterMail, SmarterTrack) by including an optimized Web interface with advanced AJAX controls and keyboard shortcuts that bring the performance of desktop applications to the Web. Dynamic charting utilizing Microsoft Silverlight technology gives SmarterStats a truly advanced and intuitive interface experience.

Single Sites, Enterprise Organizations and Hosting Companies

SmarterStats can be easily configured to measure statistics on a single Web site or up to 30,000 Web sites on Windows or Linux servers--locally or across large distributed networks--from one central SmarterStats installation(1). Log files are viewable within the SmarterStats interface and can be reprocessed again and again as reports or data needs change without any loss in accuracy.

Alternative to DeepMetrix and Urchin

"Since the acquisitions of competitors DeepMetrix(TM) and Urchin(TM) by Microsoft and Google, SmarterStats has become one of the few established options for those who want accurate statistics without being forced to make their data accessible to outside companies," continued Mr. Uzzanti.

A complete list of features, additions and improvements is available on the SmarterStats Release Notes page. SmarterStats 4.x is available at the SmarterTools Web site and through authorized resellers.
