Isn't ths software the same as using Awstats or Matrixstats?
I'm not saying that we have created anything earth shattering and new, but I don't think SearchTrax is the same as Awstats or Matrixstats.
Its not a 'typical web stats' function. If you set it up, you will realize it is pretty basic - but is different than your proverbial web stats program. It's seo/search marketing focused. that's all.
We use both of those on different sites and they both tell us what search engines are refering, keywords and geographic location, etc. Does yours do ths sand more?
i'm not familiar with everyone of the zillion web stats programs - but i believe ours does tell you what you mention - but there may be some unique things as well.
As one example, with searchtrax I can review the referral string that would be found in the log file. For example, you can 'drill' down to view referral data and end up with something like this....
URL tracks from referring site
Count Referrals by URLs
Thus in the above example I can view where referrals are coming from a site and how many. Another example, but this time based on referral urls from a search engine might look like this
Count Referring URL

3 fr=fp-pull-web-t&p=small business widgets

In addition to drilling down to view the actual referral string - you can view popularity of search terms by keyword, search engine or page based on any time frame you set. This includes the past 5 minutes to see very recent referrals, up to literally all reporting data archived for a domain.
At the same time SearchTrax does not do everything Awstats or Matrixstats does. Simply different approaches to reporting web stat information - ours is primarily seo focussed where I judge most other web stat programs are not necessarily.
Early on within this thread I mentioned that many use SearchTrax as a compliment to another stats program like Webalizer - some find that to be the best solution for them. For others SearchTrax provides everything they need. and some i assume are satisfied with their current setup.
