Piwik aims to be the ultimate open source alternative to Google Analytics. Piwik tracks online visits to one or more websites and displays reports on these visits for analysis. It provides detailed reports on your website and its visitors, including the search engines and keywords they used, the language they speak, which pages they like, the files they download and so much more.

Piwik is written in PHP5 using a MySQL database.

Piwik is the successor to phpMyVisites.
