Stats Counter

The tool I constantly use is StatsCounter, there’s information on the market shares for each search engine, different browsers, social media sites, and mobile browsers, operating systems and more. It’s always good to compare multiple sources of data; this is always a good start.

Google’s tools for finding out trends are the Insights and Trends sites. Both sites offer a good way to see search trends over time by regionally ran comparisons. The Trends site will also show data for five URLs, if they have received enough viewer traffic to register on their. It also analyzes by seasons, they can be used to look at causes of trends and their effects.
