I faced an issue with Google Webmasters Tools recently during the domain switch from ydesattle.com to y-designs.com.  “jfrouter” (Joomfish system level plugin) does not handle Google-bot correctly and throws an error. This error prevents the in-html/in-php “Google-Verification” meta from being read.  You don’t have real access on webmasters tools unless you have bottom domain access (giving webmasters tools https://y-designs.com/en doesn’t really do it).  These are ways of remedying this issue.

Open Source Analytics

Open Source Analytics

If you like Google Analytics, but wanted to know more about exactly where and how your links were being built, Piwik can help you.

Though it lacks integration with AdWords, it can detect visitors without the use of JavaScript, which is a plus compared to Google Analytics.

Installation is much like any other well packaged PHP-MySql program.  Try it out!
