If you have money to spend, go get WebTrends for the complete
professional package. But there are loads of good freeware log
analysers, (visit Dave Central : which do the job nicely. The main thing to look for in a log report is Referring Pages, where your visitors are coming from, which search engines they use to find you, and most important, which KEYWORDS they typed in. This is all assuming your ISP allows you access to the server logs (some don't).

Personally, I use gumball tracker (recommended by someone here, I'm sure) since I have zero budget.
Gumball is an invisible tracker (no gharish graphics or banners)
which records a remote log of your page visitors. You can access this
log in your browser and save as a text file, or have it emailed to you.
Either way, it's free, and you can put in on as many pages as you like.
Wow, multi-page tracking, for FREE ?

Anyway, Gumball is available at

Hope this helps

PS If anyone else can recommend some great free log analysis
software, please let me know cos I tend to use 2 or 3 since no
single package has all the features I'm looking for.
