Why are my statistics different to my other statistics processor?

If you are comparing your website statistics with other statistics processors like Google, Webalizer, then you may find differences in the amount of hits.

Following information found from the AwStats website gives reasoning of this:

"If you compare AWStats results with an other log file analyzer, you will find some differences, sometimes very important. In fact, all analyzer (even AWStats) make "over reporting" because of the problem of proxy-servers and robots. However AWStats is one of the most accurate and its "over reporting" is very low where all other analyzers, even the most famous, have a VERY HIGH error rate (10% to 200% more than reality !)."
