Unique Visitor Converter [ ARTICLE ]

Traffic is a big part of running a webcomic. It helps a lot to see where your visitors are coming from, what they’re viewing and most important how many of them are there. But one of the problems is that not everyone uses the same statistic trackers. On top of that the amount of how many visitors can differ drastically from tracker to another. So I created a converter between Google Analytics, eXeTReMe Tracking and Project Wonderful.

Update: Removed a problem when a number has lead zeros in it. Also, now when the input box has focus the text inside it is removed, which should eliminate lingering lead zeros to begin with. Lastly, the font for the bottom results has been updated for consistancy.

Personally, I feel that Google Analytics is your best traffic source. They don’t count bots so you get a more accurate statistic. Granted the number of unique visitors it provides will be lower than the other stat traffic available in the converter above, but it will also be more accurate. But that’s just me. I prefer to live in reality.
