Urchin is often declared superior to the competition, even software and services costing many times as much. "The clear winner here is Urchin 5" - Search Engine Professionals.

Urchin Is Smarter

Urchin is the most accurate web analytics products on the market. How? By using both log files and cookie information. Urchin captures visitor parameters and true path data via the Urchin Tracking Module (UTM2), a free, client-side data collection component that transparently sends additional data back to the server and into the log file. The UTM2 uses a first-party cookie to overcome the effects of caches, proxies, and IP-recycling to provide the most accurate and complete reporting available from ANY analytics solution.

Log-only systems tell half the story. ASP solutions tell the other half. Only Urchin gives you a complete picture of your websites' usage.

Salient Marketing can help you understand how to evaluate your web analytics (what your visitors are doing on your site), select the performance metrics that matter and make the information from your log files actionable. Stop guessing about what your visitors are doing; understand it and convert more visitors into customers.

The integration of our metrics services with our search engine optimization services and our pay-per-click management services - all managed by the same dedicated campaign management team - provides a considerable advantage in terms of coordination and communication over managing pieces of this process by yourself, or through separate vendors.
