basil gives you a different perspective of your site and how it is performing.
Many web analytics tools fail because they give you raw data (tables, numbers and meaningless charts) and rely on you (or your web analyst; if you can afford one) to make sense of this data.
The project solves this problem by providing intelligent interfaces that answer questions like what are my most popular pages? or which search engine delivers the most traffic to my site? basil takes the questions and does the number crunching so you dont have to.
