IndexTools vs. SiteMeter

Yesterday, there was a huge disparity between the IndexTools and SiteMeter traffic figures for the Former Naval Person blog (NSFW). I hope it is because of SiteMeter and not a problem with IndexTools. SiteMeter changed in some fundamental way earlier this year, after a severe and extended outage on the server used for Former Naval Person tracking. Since then, IndexTools has continued to reflect values consistent with what has become typical.

Hi Jim,

Happy to see the trust in our system. I am quite sure you are aware of the studies performed by stone temple consulting (they compared 6 Web Analytics tools side by side and compared the collected data)

If not; here is a quick link:
