    Use Ahrefs, i think it is a great tool for tracking.

    Eh? Ahrefs isn't a visitor analytics application so not sure why you have suggested this.

    Have a look at this service - www.afsanalytics.com

    I use it on an ad hoc basis & I can recommend it.

    I've been looking at incorporating whosisvisiting.com that can help you dig into the who, what, when , where and how of your visitors

    Yes, never waste your money on PPC.

    Spend it smartly on PPC instead, like fisicx, and laugh all the way to the bank

    Hey @jackanderson, not sure if i get the question but will try to answer...

    Best way to track your website traffic (in my view) is

    1) Define a tagging and tracking strategy (think UTM's etc) so you can always track all marketing activity without giving all your data to competitors

    2) Use a solution that fits your need to see what the behaviour of your traffic is across different intents (Awareness, Interest, Desire, Action etc)

    3) Potentially use a link shorteners or click tracker depending on your needs.

    4) If using a Walled garden solution make sure its connected

    Give a shout if you need any clarifications and good luck

    Ahrefs is for competitor research, link research, keyword tracking, etc. Hope you understand.
