Just wanted to say hello. I'm Alex and run a podcast called SmallBizPod - it's quite well known and was one of the first business podcasts in the UK.
Site traffic is not too bad, around 20,000 uniques a month, but I'm hoping to pick up some advice on extending this and what else I ought to be doing to promote the site online.
One quick question. Why are log file stats (excluding spiders and bots) so different from Google analytic stats?
P.S. If anyone ever needs advice on podcasting, I'm very happy to help.

Hi Alex - we might be able to help you promote your blog - which by the way is very good. We're just about to launch a new research business which specifically targets the UK 'SME' market (in conjunction with a global research company). Our marketing plans haven't yet been finalised but I suspect there's potential to cross-promote with services like yours.
If you're interested in having a chat - we're London based - then let me know. Hope to hear from you,

Cheers John, happy to discuss options. Give me a buzz when your marketing plans are a little clearer.

Love the podcast. I would recommend it to anyone running or looking to start a business.
I've had similar problems between Google Adwords reports and Google Analytics reports for paid traffic.
I would double check that every page you are tracking is tagged with the Google code. Also on content heavy pages ensure that the footer, where Google suggests you put the code, fully loads on each page. It also might be worth trying a similar tag based tracking solution to see if the results differ from those of Google. Have a look at http://www.seomoz.org/blog/how-reliable-is-google-analytics
Thanks for giving me something to listen to on the way home.
