I've got a site hosted on a provider I'm very happy with except for the fact that their online statistics are not especially indepth. I was wondering if there is anyway I can generate better stats on my own with any scripts or pages or anything (I'm not really to knowledgable in this department) that I can load onto the site.

First things first: do you have access to your raw logs?

For the moment no, although I'm working on getting them to supply me with that. I'm guessing by the way you are asking as well as common sense that not having the logs would make it impossible to receive better stats.

If you have access to the raw logs, I HIGHLY recommend Awstats. From what I've seen, it gives about as much information as you can hope for from a stats generator.

I use it for two sites at work, and my own personal site. It can be a bit tricky to set up, but I think it's worth it for a site that has medium to high activity.

And it's open source, and published under the GNU license.

It's not impossible, but it changes your options. Without logs, you can either put together some sort of dynamic page logging script (commonly done with php/mysql) which you've said you don't want to do, or you can sign up for some sort of external page stats monitoring service. Some are free, some aren't. I can't really recommend one as I haven't used one, but usually you just insert a link/image into your html files, and it takes care of logging.

So on this blog I maintain, I often see referrals from pages on which not only do I not see a link to the blog, but the page has nothing to do with anything that might lead someone to said blog.
