I'm looking for a web log analyzer that can report on bounce rate. We have used AWStats in the past as it is free and works well; however, I don't think it can report on bounce rate.

Bounce Rate - % of users who leave the site after visiting only one page.

Does it have bounce rate and I just didn't find it? Otherwise, is there a similar system that would provide that measure?

Google Analytics

While not technically a web log analyzer, Google Analytics provides a huge amount of valuable information... including bounce rate.

I'm a big fan of it.

  • Hey Thanks, sorry for the super slow response, but I do appreciate this answer. We'll likely go this route; however, we have so many legacy sites, that adding a JS snippet to every page is unfeasible. After we upgrade to IIS 7 (which can do it for you) we'll definitely go this route. Thanks again! Commented Dec 3, 2009 at 18:25

i searched for a bit and found:

in awstats-universe, the significant term is EXIT PAGE

so you could go on searching for a plugin which tracks if the exit-page is eqal to your home-page, which would be a bounce to my understanding.

also, you could write a plugin.



  • I think the phrase "I searched for a bit" is an understatement, given how long it took you to post your response!
