For those of you who use Sitemeter, do you trust the statistics it generates?
The reason I ask is that I’m seeing huge differences between what it reports and what Blogger’s built-in stats reports in terms page views and so on. Based on Sitemeter’s numbers I’m just about talking to myself, but Blogger says I have a decent audience out there for my ramblings and rantings. Based on Sitemeter, I have an average audience of around 70 people per day. Blogger puts the number about 3x-4x higher. Yes I know that either is still kind of small, but in essence this is done for me. I appreciate that anyone at all stops by, but I’m still curious about how many, and I value accuracy in all things.
When you also add to that that the Sitemeter code adds time to the page load (sometimes by a lot), I’m really considering dropping it. You folks have any thoughts on the matter?
