I'm not technical so go easy
Does this mean I can track analytics of on a password protected application as well as the marketing site?
I also like you when I construction my site. I looking for in network and now I using web analytics open source : Piwik. Very easy install and use. That is program track real time.
you can visit this link : http://piwik.org to download new version.
With analytics online I use StartCounter and Clicky . They give me good result.
But I recomended you use one of them because if you use more, speed your website slowly.
