Like it or not, "banner advertising" seems to be the leading way to make money on the internet (perhaps only second to developing web sites). See http://www.ca-probate.com/comm_net.htm for evaluations of dozens of different banner advertising networks, brokers, exchanges, and related resources.
Like others, I really appreciate Analog as a stats program (my stats can be viewed by anyone at http://www.ca-probate.com/stats/stats.html).
But for a huge number of web site developers, it is impossible to use a program like Analog because the users have no access to their site logs! For those users, the only way to get statistics would be to use a "counter" or "tracker" service. For a list of such services, see http://www.ca-probate.com/counter.htm
