Open Source Analytics Tools
Yahoo Web Analytics came close to Omniture, Webtrends and Coremetrics in feature set. (I came to same conclusion in my blog post last year on Yahoo Web Analytics.)
Comparing Yahoo Web Analytics and Google Analytics, Yahoo is clearly the winner.
However, I would like to make it clear that you need to look at your needs and determine which tool will work best for you. For example, Google Analytics clearly works better than Yahoo Web Analytics when you spend a lot of money on AdWords and need easy integration of web analytics and Adwords.
This report has done all the research for you and will defiantly save a lot of time and headache. You can buy the report at CMS Watch’s Site
