Is there an easy way of counting unique visitors accessing a website and monitoring site traffic. I know it is probably possible using some sort of log file but I would rather stick to using a database. The information I would like to gather is:
Site referals such as google etc.
I know I could just use google analytics but I would like to implement this information into my content management system therefore I need to gather it myself I think.
Any help much appreciated,
Thanks in Advance,
